COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Steeped in a long history dating back hundreds of years, this "old-fashioned" beer is again in vogue. Lager is the German word meaning "to store," so this beer ages three times longer than our ales do. "Dunkel" means dark in German, but don’t let the color fool you, it is by no means heavy, overbearing, or bitter. In fact, it proves to be a very drinkable session beer.

Pours dark brown with fluffy tan head. Aroma of powdered cocoa. Taste of roasted malts, raisins, carmel, and earth. There is also a touch of hop bitterness on the backend. Overall, a good dunkel.

jsquire (3437) - St. Marys, Ohio, USA - DEC 24, 2010
Mahogany hued dark beer with a foamy biege head that left nice lacing. Sweet malt syrup nose with some puffed wheat and something vaguely tart. Toffee sweet with some caramel corn, funky fruit and an odd sour tanginess to it that I don’t prefer.

Thanks to Dave. 12 oz. bottle. Appearance-Murky brown color, medium tan head Aroma- Papery cardboard overwhelms other aromas, some roast and sweetness. Taste-Raisins, roast, dry but mildly bitter finish. Papery aroma persists through taste. Medium mouthfeel. Overall- Could be a nice beer but off aroma is a bit distracting.

Heathen (1458) - Wilmington, Delaware, USA - DEC 1, 2010
THOUGHTS: A very flavorful dunkel. One of the tastiest example of ht style I’d ever tried. It was a little thick, but definitely delicious. TECHNICAL: Bottle. Poured a clear, light to medium brown with reddish orange highlights and a large, light tan head that mostly diminished and left fair lacing. The aroma had moderate to heavy roasted malt; lighter burnt malt and later on dark chocolate and sour coffee; light herbal hops; very light funky yeast; and a little dark and sour fruit. The initial flavor was sweet, sour and slightly bitter; while the finish was sour, sweet and lightly bitter with an average to short duration. There was semi-sweet chocolate, bitter and sour coffee, roasted malt, caramel, slight herbal hops at the end and dark chocolate. The medium body was a bit syrupy with lightly fizzy carbonation and a light to moderately astringent finish.
