2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
12 Oz. long neck.
Pours dark brown but head was achieved only with an aggressive pour.
Once achieved, the off-white head stayed for a while and left a nice lacing.
A little chocolate on the nose, and lots of malt. Almost no hops.
Taste is a bit disappointing compared to the aroma and a little watery.
Malt is there but not enough hops to balance. Good carbonation.
Medium body, pretty smooth. Dry finish.
Very drinkable, not a bad brew.

Deep brown translucent pour. Slight malty aroma and taste. Fizzy and a note of bitterness like Arabica beans.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours a deep reddish brown with a medium head and some lace. The aroma is nicely roasty with plenty of chocolate and some odd unidentified stinkiness. Flavor is pleasantly roasty with some good chocolate and plum fruitiness, sort of one dimensional but very nice never the less.

Bottle @ home. Brown appearance with a light brown head. Richly nutty, light espresso, toasty caramel malty, earthy, big nutty aroma. Somewhat earthy, big nutty, toasty malty, rich chocolate flavor. One of the best American dunkels I’ve had. These guys can make some nice german beers. Nice beer!

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Aroma is chocolate, biscuit, licorice. Appearance is dark brown w a hint of ruby red. Taste is chocolate, biscuit, bread and sweet malt forward. A bit of roast and just a tiny bit of hop bitterness. Palate ismedium+. Chocolate and biscuit linger. Overall a decent Dunkel. A bit rich, but still very drinkable. 8th beer I have had in a sampler, and all had serious under-carbonation issues... which didnt help any of them.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Very nice roasted aroma. Pours a reddish-brown, that appears ruby when held to a light. There’s just a ring of tan head to the beer, with visible carbonation in it. Smooth roasted flavor, with hints of coffee and cherries. Mild on the palate with a lingering roasted note. This is a nice solid beer, that is easily approachable. There’s nothing extraordinary about it, but it is solid.
