My Bottom Line:
This smashing Dunkel serves up nutty caramel, earthy hops and orangey angles in a most adorable mouthfeel.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A creamy head of foam settles atop the orangey brown.
-Malt flavors are beautifully expressed without falling into heavy residual sugars.
-Hops are harmonious with the grain bill.
-This is one of those Dunkels which, when properly served, can give luster to this oft-forgotten style.

On tap at the brewery gasthof.

Tap and Keg at Mahr’s Brau. Not your typical dunkel! A bright copper with super lacy head. Malty aroma and killer after taste. Not super carbonated and really easy drinking. Had it with Rye bread but had slight Rye aftertaste which was very pleasant.

One of the best dunkel I ever had. Dark cola body with a small beige head. Aroma of cherry, caramel. Taste is ripe fruits.

A stron roasted malt aroma. Looks excellent. Flavor is rich roasted malt up front but with a thinnish middle. Finsih gains strength and has a coating character.pretty good. A lot of coffee notes in the finish as well.

CanIHave4Beers (3321) - Pouring Bus, Iowa, USA - DEC 15, 2011
On tap at the Hessen Haus.
The beer pours a deep ruby color with a small well retained head that leaves some lace on the glass.

The aroma is very rich with chocolate and malty character, both lightly sweet and very clean.

The flavor is fruity with some cherry and chocolate out front some earthiness and a mild roastiness are in the background and this has a really enjoyable noble hop expression bringing a good balanced bitterness. The beer is not really very sweet as many of the dunkels we get in the US tend to be.

I quite like this.

Braudog (5832) - Glenville, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 11, 2011
Draft at the brewpub. Another Bamberg beer labeled as a dunkel that doesn’t meet my paradigm, this again being more of an amber. Caramel malt with a tart finish. Good and enjoyable. Sure wish we could’ve eaten here. (#4398, 12/3/2011)

jaghana (4017) - Strasbourg (France), FRANCE - JUN 17, 2011
Bottle 50cl from Bierzweig.com. A clear red-brown beer with medium head and good lacing. Nose is bread and grapes like. Aroma is dry on toasted and dark chocolate malt, body is a bit watery but whole aroma is nice with prune and dry grapes notes. Superb aftertaste on dry grapes and bitter dark chocolate, caramel and hops bitterness, nice dunkel; finish is very dry and bitter.

downender (6360) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - JUL 22, 2011
Bottle. Chestnut coloured with a decent off-white head. Nutty, slightly roasty aroma with a bready edge. Flavour was malty, avoiding excessive sweetness, with some hazelnuts and dryish finish. Very good.
