Very dark red color with no head. Aroma is completely missing. Slight coffee taste with a pinch of malt. Unfortunately boring.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Deep, translucent cherry black in color with a lovely, dark creamy tan head. Burnt chocolate manifests in the aroma, interspersed with Coca Cola. Rich, nutty chocolate take a robust step forward in the flavor profile. Caramel currents and milk chocolate brownies contribute as well. Palate feel is appreciated - creamy, medium-bodied and easy going as a dunkel should be. Good to see a brewpub doing an above par rendition of the style.

Sample at the brewpub. Near black, wisp of head which lasted an hour. Grapy-chocolaty nose, smooth cocoa body, fairly full; chewy, late robustness, a great "dark" session beer.

Clear ruby brown with medium tan head. Aroma is sweet toasty, caramel, and light roasty -- quite inviting. Taste is sweet, caramel, toasty, and light peach. Light carbonation and a light/medium body.
