3.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Like a previous reviewer said, you have to really pour from the bottle aggressively to get a head. But even when you achieve a little head, it fizzles to a very thin foam moderately quickly. There is a strong chocolatey/coffee aroma and taste. I think this beer could use some aging and mellowing a bit, as the coffee taste is too "in your face." I couldn’t drink a full bottle of this.

Taste doesn’t quite match aroma and appearance. Kind of watery. Not as flavorful as I would expect

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.

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.

Tap at the brewery. Rating #328. I thought this was a delicious beer. It gad a decent amount of chocolate and a little roast with a nice smooth and clean finish. Very tasty. (2428)

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!
