3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
At the brewpub, clear copper with a white head. Aroma of caramel, german hops, and some raw grain. Smooth caramel flavour with a light hop profile giving some enjoyment. The finish is quite dry for the style. Like the Marzen, its basic as you could imagine... but one of those beers you could just sit and drink all night.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap at Naturbier. Poured a deeper reddish-brown with a short, creamy beige head. Sweet toasted caramel along with.. well.. not much else in the aroma.. perhaps a touch of lighter fruits peeked through. The flavor had a bit more going on than the aroma indicated.. toasty caramel and some darker fruits at the base with a mild herbal bitterness.. OK. Lighter-bodied on the palate and very dry.. somewhat sweet.. short, toasty finish.

2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Draught, a cloudy brown with a foamy tan-tinted head. A stronger malt aroma than its Helles cousin, only slightly caramal and roasted. A sweetening malty flavour, over-carbonated and not as clean or crisp as the Helles.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft at Naturbier, march 07. Cloudy, copper-red color and a thick, creamy, beige head. Aroma is toasty, slight caramel touch. Tast is pruney, profound but not pushy. Deep enjoyable toasty feeling with a nice coffee aftertaste. Medium to light MF, moreish. A nice, although not too exceptional, interesting dunkle.

It had a chocolate/mocha aroma. It was dark brown with a white head. The flavor was very nutty, in fact I would have guessed it was a nut brown ale. The mouthfeel was sticky, and the aftertaste was like Dunkin’ Donuts coffee. I’ll give it a lot of credit for being fresh.

Was a little better. Although a little insipit. THey are both natural but, for some reason, are the same booring as the natuistic products. BUt healthier.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Clear copper color, short but lasting head. Sweet malty aroma, some caramel. Sweet taste, caramel malty, bitter. Bit sticky palate. Not very complex, but ok.

Draught at the brewpub
Hazy amber color, nice head. Some malt, caramel and hops aroma. Very good flavor, malt, sweetness, caramel, and a good aromatic hopping. If just all the Dunkel were like this one…

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
UPDATED: OCT 27, 2003 Sampled draught at the brewpub.
Orange brown, hazy. Medium bodied. Toasty and appley. Rather sweet with rounded soft mouthfeel. Some salty hops in the finish. Excessive apple and cellar flavour makes me think of old Soviet style lagers.
