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.

On tap at NOC in NC? Malt, hops and some over-ripe dark fruit in the aroma. A little fruitiness in the taste as well, but mostly a simple malt flavor with a mild hop overlaid. Has a mildly bitter finish and aftertaste. Medium-light body; fine carbonation. O - an interesting beer with a solid and lingeering dark malt finish and aftertaste.

Pours dark brown with a thin head. The aroma is wonderful, malty with some smoke, earthy the flavor is rich with the smoky malts and earthiness. Quite a delightful beer.

BlackWarrior (203) - Spartanburg, South Carolina, USA - MAY 19, 2013
Pours a clear dark, amber w/ small off-white head that quickly vanishes to a lasting thin sheet w/ spotty lacing. Fruity, caramel aroma with some pear, toffee, earth and tobacco. Mouthfeel is medium and smooth, almost creamy. Finish is sweet w/ some bitterness. Flavors are caramel w/ a hint of coffee and dark chocolate. An excellent balance of sweet and bitter on the back end. I really enjoyed this one, and will pick it up whenever I can.

12oz Bottle. Thanks for sharing, Rob! Between this and the Endless River, I am really impressed with Mother Earth’s traditional German style brewing. Nice work. On this, a toasty fresh bread and grain aroma. Flavors move more towards the dark fruits and browned nuts, but the crispness from the lagering is delectable. Very satisfying, round, and balanced. Some malt fruitiness and richness for flavor, not too much sugar nor alcohol for drinkability, and that really quenching crispness. Good Dunkel.

Had a hard time seeing anything here. There was a strong metallic twang to the beer, which overshadowed anything else. I think that if you could eliminate the metal it might be ok, but alas, ’twas not to be.

Aurelius (4773) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - APR 19, 2013
Lightly candied, light roast, slight creosote aroma. Grainy dark malt, light astringency in the aroma. Good label; medium-dark clear brown. Cereal, lightly astringent, roast, not too sweet, low bittering. I was a little disappointed. Thanks LuckyDog.

Clear very dark ruby amber with a bubbly head that soon reduces to the rim, teardrops of lace. Taste is earthy moss and malt with overtones of nut bread and brown sugar, followed through the palate by prunes and apple, with light bittering at the finish. A rich brew with much to savor. Recommended.

UPDATED: NOV 21, 2014 I have to re review this beer, the last offering I tried was much better than the first batch. The latest batch had me bringing home a growler which dissappeared very quickly. This stuff STILL looks dark and murky in the glass. Nice tan head. Light lacing. Aroma is toffee, roasted coffee, caramel and malt. Taste is caramel, malts, a hint of coffee, and it does definitely have a some what oyster stout taste. Eartly and slightly fruity. The taste has improved to be less grainy and abrasive. On the light side. Not too much carbonation. Slight bitter, yet still malty. A solid version of a classic German style. Much improved over what it has been.
