This is a very nice beer. It has German microbrewery written all over it. This is not overly polished, refined, mass produced lager. This beer is a taste of how rough, unfiltered, cave-aged German lager used to be. Lammsbrau Dunkel is so close to the origin of its ingredients, you can almost taste past the malt, past the grain, and into the earth. Despite it’s filtered appearance, it has the unrefined qualities of Franconian Kellerbier, without any hop presence. It seems to me that unlike the larger German macro-dunkels, this beer achieves its dark color from specialty grain, and not from an extended boil period. Unfortunately served from a green bottle, but fortunately a fresh case, recently acquired not only from the retail location, but the distributor it came from. May not be the most amazing beer in the world, but an important one to try if you want to learn beer.

Drake (8030) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - SEP 22, 2012
Bottled at the Top of the Hops Festival, Charlottesville, 9/22/12. Organic version. Pours a clear copper color with a thin fizzy tan head. Aroma of sweet caramel, raisin and a dusty note. The taste is raisin, toffee, herbal hops, stone fruits. Medium bodied and a slight lingering bitterness. Nice.

DukeBrewDevil (732) - Chapel Hill, North Carolina, USA - APR 20, 2009
Bottle. Clear light maroon pour with a big foamy white head. Nose is simple....sweet malts. The flavor’s very malt-leaning as well with some brown sugar, caramel, and maple syrup. While there’s not much bitterness to balance the sweetness, it’s light enough it’s quite drinkable. Leaves the mouth sticky. An enjoyable malty session beer.

I actually liked this beer pretty well, but it was maybe a tad sweet for a dunkel. Pours caramel brown with a small off-white head. Nose is caramel, brown sugar, molasses, and some booze. Flavor is very similar with some lingering sugar and malt in the finish.

jgb9348 (4635) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - MAR 23, 2013
Dark brown coloured body with some lighter amber tints and a bit of copper hues at the bottom, all with a one centimetre tall tan head. Aroma of toasty malt, nuts, earth, caramel and a hint of concord grapes. Medium-bodied; Strong earthy maltiness noticeable with a good sweetness, some light spices and not much else. Aftertaste shows the malt with a hint of alcohol, some sweetness and a good mellow earthiness. Overall, a nice beer - can’t believe I never sampled this one, but well worth a drink, especially if you are eating some German food! I sampled this stubby (german style) 33 cL bottle purchased from Old Europe restaurant in Washington, DC for US$6.00 today on 23-March-2013.

kapusil (564) - HUNGARY - JUL 11, 2013
0.5l bottle. Deep ruby body, light brown head. Aroma of dark fruits, caramel and roasted malts. Taste is more caramelly than the aroma suggests and has dark fruit and toast notes. The finish is a bit hoppy. Medium-full body, oily texture. Nice one!

chinchill (1617) - South Carolina, USA - AUG 28, 2013
Poured clear amber brown with a weak head. Aroma had more sweet caramel malt than medium roast malt, but this is reversed in tasting. Lightly sweet flavor suggests dark bread baked with some brown sugar. Medium body with spot on carbonation.
