This dunkel pours a deep brown color form a 50cl flip top bottle. Large sized beige creamy head, with good retention and nice lacing. Aroma is chocolate malt, slightly sweet with a touch of fruitiness. A medium to light bodied dunkel. The malts are caramel, chocolate and semi-sweet. The hops are earthy and floral. Nice balance. Soft carbonation. A milder tasting dunkel the flavors of raisins, chocolate and roasty malts, mingle nicely in this one. There is perhaps a touch of smoke at the finish. Mouthfeel is full and soft. Finish is clean. Aftertaste is slightly sweet.

Swing-top. Aroma of sweet grass and citrus, light chalky/dusty hoppiness. Very malty with just a touch of grain. Fresh and refreshing! Slight bocky (grapey malt) touches. Chocolate and nuts. Noisy, excitable head fills the whole glass when not careful, lacing-rich and rocky cocoa-colored head. Deep, dark mahogany body, but still translucent. Taste is dry with chocolate, nuts, and light cocoa, perhaps a dash of mocha. Nice, downplayed earthy hops, but here, the malt’s the thing. Light rounding bitterness. Light body, not watery, and very smooth. Classy, straightforward but satisfying rendition.

500ml bottle. Thick, amber-mahogany color with a huge. lasting head. Taste is very mellow, with mild chocolate and caramel notes being the backbone of the beer. Very smooth and drinkable, a great lager. The aroma is nice and fresh with a light herbal touch to it. A very sublime, quality beer.

This bolled brew with a flippy top poured a medium sized light brown colored frothy head of mostly lasting bubbles that left behind an opaque dark brown colored body with no visible carbonation and a fair lacing. The aroma was mild with malty notes and the mouth feel was mildly tingly and faded in the finish. It had a mild malt flavor with a mild hoppiness that came out in the aftertaste.

Pours with a very large white head. Body is almost black with a touch or crimson coming through when held to bright light. The aroma is bread crust with some fall leaves. The hops aroma is subtle but nice and earthy. The taste is a nice light and refreshing blend of apricots, bread and fall leaves. Overall a very solid Oktoberfest that I like as the musty earthy tastes outweigh any sweetness that seems to dominate others in the style. Very nice.

JPDIPSO (5133) - Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 21, 2004
Deep orange/brown color with a tall antler colored head. Just a frosting of lace. Dark toasty malt aromas. Somewhat simple but a fall afternoon sniff for sure. Pumpernickel bread comes to mind while giving this a taste. A bit grainy and a touch of sour-mash comes in late and whisks the flavors away. I like it in a autumn type brew as straightforward as it is.

Dickinsonbeer (5075) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - AUG 31, 2005
500 ml swing top bottle purchased in CT.This was pretty good considering I have had a few old bottles from mahrs in the past. This tasted kinda fresh with a nice clean malt profile. Pours a deep brown, mostly clear with a nice beige head. Aroma is light munich and light chocolate with that typical dunkel aroma. Not hoppy at all, althought it has a slight crisp bitter finish but is pretty smooth. Lots of dark munich and toffee-like malts all the way through. Again- cool label, nice bottle and good price.

Pours deep brown into a stoneware mug. Smoky malt aromas. Creamy, yet crisp and smooth with dark caramel and a lasting smoke finish. Perfect for crisp evening watching the ALCS.

The aroma is hard to place, a little smoky. Looks nice. Opaque. Tasty. Thickish like a stout, but with chocolate and more like a dunkel than anything else I suppose (did good!) Quite nice and not that heavy.

Freakishly dark red with a thin head. Strong malt aroma with enough whisps of smoke to make me think of salted pork. The taste is dominated by barley with what struck me as chocolate lacing. Odd for the style, but it turned out quite drinkable.
