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.

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.

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.

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.

On tap @ Wolskis. Head dies a little too quickly. Otherwise the malty, light chocolate flavor shines through. Toast warm yet not dry. This is a dark beer you could chug if you had to (rare among darks). Mouthfeel is medium-heavy but not burnt coffee like many dark beers. PK Like!!!!

Wonderful foaming action when poured. Looks like a root beer float when in a glass. Slightly bitter lingering after taste. Nice roasted, nutty, hoppy flavor.

12 oz. bottle purchased at Oliver’s Beverage Center, Albany, NY. Deep brown color, no head. Low carbonation. Aromas of sweet malt and dark fruit. Taste was caramel, coffee, chocolate and a moderate Earthy hop finish. Dirty malts. Overall, it’s a nice representation of a German style. Drinkable and could be a session brew even if it is a tad boring. If you like the style maybe it will grab you.
