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.

Very dark brown with a small off-white head. Malty sweet aroma. A decent amount of roast in the flavor, underlying a sweet caramel and toffee cheweyness. Caramel/toffee sweetness is slightly dominant to the roasty, cocoa aspects. Slightly thin bodied with moderate carbonation.

Darkest of brown, almost black with thin tan head. Light roasted malt/coffee, Munich-type malts, and a little licorice. Flavor has smooth lager Munich malt sweetness followed by velvety cocoa/coffee roast finish. Enjoyable.

On-tap @ the Brewpub. Deep mahogany color and a nice tan head of foam that leaves sheets of lacing behind it. Aroma of dark chocolate and toasted munich-style malts. Light roasted malt flavor for bitterness and some rich chocolate in the flavor. Nutty aspect reminded me a lot of a rich nut brown ale. Medium-to-full bodied and quite smooth. Says on the menu that this won a Silver medal at the Great American Beer Festival. I can see why.
