Pours a nice shade of brown, milk chocolate and bread on the nose. Caramel, bread, and chocolate on the palate. Not overly complex, but straight forward for what it is.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Twelve ounce bottle from Beer Of The (Every Other) Month Club, tasted on December 12, 2012. Dark brown ruby hue, small tan head that slowly left with fair lacing, nice sweet malty aroma with chocolate/bread/yeast notes, interesting sweet malty taste with chocolate notes. A couple of off notes in the flavor keep this from getting a higher score. Still, a respectable brew.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle from Ashur Liquor variety 8 pack: Created a thick foamy topping of head while the liquid was a dark tinted brown. In the nose, there is a delicate balance of caramel malts with a hint of honey roasted nuts. The flavor is simple and allows for the caramel malt to dominate but just as the aroma had lead me to believe, there is a slight profile of roasted nuts. As for the finish, it leaves behind an aftertaste of decaf coffee which makes this an all right American made dunkel.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Poured at a dunkel tasting. This one didn’t blow me away but was a solid general drinker I could serve to friends. Pours a brown with small white head. Aroma was called coffee like in description from brewery but I got a roasted malt and dark fruit aroma. Taste was malty and dark toast. Lighter in flavor than other dunkel’s for me. Body was medium and it was creamy. Not bad but not a standout for me in a fav style.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Poured from a bottle into a pint glass. Head, or lack thereof, died very quickly which gave the beer an overall flat taste. Good coffee aroma and very drinkable for a dark beer though. Overall, solid beer, but I had heard good things so it left me a little disappointed.

A tasty dark lager. The foamy head is very brief and doesn’t last long unfortunately. Nice malty flavor. Worth a taste.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
12oz bottle from the place by Costco, Wine something or other. Poured a nice looking mostly black thinner density body with a smaller dirty white foamy head. Aroma of cheaper bad chocolate, milk, cream, wet dark toast burnt corn husks and some dark veggies. Body is medium with a creamy almost milkiness about it and softer carbonation which furhter adds to the creaminess. Flavor is old dark malts, milk, cream, some darker veggies, earth. Meh this started off okay but sort of didn’t hold on.
