2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle. Dark brown like stained oak. Virtually no head whatsoever after the first few seconds. The beer emits a sweet aroma and drinks with a easy-going dunkel character -- sweetly malty, with a tinge that almost crosses the line into cocoa, but not quite. Easy to drink, unoffending in any way, so most anyone would be OK with it. (#4472, 2/7/2012)

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Strong, malty aroma is slightly musky and has earthy, molasses and nutty notes. It pours a somewhat translucent sepia with a fairly thick, if not persistent, wheat-brown head that leaves considerable lacing. Rich flavor has a malty core and caramel, earthy, nutty and molasses notes. Firm-bodied texture is smooth yet rather tingly, leaving an earthy, woody finish. Eminently drinkable and enjoyable.

UPDATED: DEC 9, 2011 A little bit of bitterness on the finish. Nice dark brown with a slightly off-white head. Very palatable, but a little bit thinner than I like.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12oz bottle. Poured a dark amber color with a short tan head and little lacing. The aroma and flavor have a big rich, dark bready toast, caramel, nutty and coca character, that begins dry and then a sweet candy note rolls in before a mildy bitter and fruity finish. A bit thin in the mouth with a light body and mild carbonation. Very easy to drink and smooth.

A: the pour is dark brown in color with a finger of off-white head.
S: Starts off with a mild aroma of roasted malts. This is followed by hints of chocolate and a light coffee note. There are some hints of dark fruits, specifically raisins, along with a mild toffee sweetness and some toasted bread.
T: Coffee grounds and roasted malts are the first flavors I pick up. Those are followed by toffee and toasted bread, which provide a nice, subtle sweetness. There is jus a light bitterness and earthy hop flavor.
M: Medium bodied with a medium level of carbonation.
O: You don’t often see a Dunkel as part of a US brewery’s regular line-up, let alone a well done one. Solid beer.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle thanks to Spencer. Pours a clear brown/red color with a medium off-white head. The aroma is sweet fruity malts, some grapes in there and light toast. The flavor is a nice Dunkel; sweet but not overly so, dry, fruity, lingering but light bitterness in the finish. Nice.
