COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This rich dark ale comes to Northwest beer connoisseurs with roots of German origin. Generous portions of Crystal, Munich, and Chocolate malt combine to create an Ale of extraordinary complexity and smoothness. Modestly hopped utilizing Yakima Valley Liberty hops, the Dunkel finishes slightly sweet with Carmel and Chocolate flavors.

Braudog (5486) - Hampton, Virginia, USA - MAY 22, 2007
Draft pint at the brewpub; Dark reddish brown with just the average foam top. Can definitely smell the chocolate malt even thru a snotty nose. Sweet and smooth, this was the wrong beer to start with at this brewpub. Chocolate, chewy, almost green tea-like. Quite sweet; should’ve been dessert. (#2915, 5/18/07)

BillKismet (3291) - Seattle, Washington, USA - NOV 21, 2006
Brown black body w. inviting chocolate head. Mild aroma w.slight chocolate emerging after aeration.. Roasty-grainy body. Tastes like a young beer that hasn’t had time to develop.

Dark Brown in colour. Heavy malt nose which continues in the taste. Bit of an odd finish, but generally quite drinkable.

Sham (1845) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JUN 26, 2006
Dark brown with lighter edges. A tan head and nice lacing. Chcolate and toasted malts in the nose. A little bit wheaty. Flavor is full of wheat and biscuits. Chocolate comes through here and there. Finishes bitter.

Deep brown, tan head.Light chocolate malt nose. Light sweet chocolate malt taste, but terribly thin.

Oakes (11779) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 18, 2006
Dark brown colour. Rich, complex aroma with American-style big chocolate malt and a slight nuttiness. Starts chocolatey and rich, but gets thinner and more metallic (but nothing too dramatic). This reverts again into a clean finish with a moderately rooty bitter chocolate note. The overt American-ness of this dunkel may have Europeans and diehard lager fans cringe, but it’s a tasty brew.

BückDich (5464) - McCall, Idaho, USA - MAY 11, 2006
Tap @ Brewpub in Spokane, WA<BR>Dark brown, ruby color, tan head, lots of lacing. Nose of sweet chocolate and creamy roast and caramel malt. The flavor is a bit yeasty with a strong co2 slap. The finish is average, good beer.

Murphy (1759) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - NOV 28, 2005
Tap. Pours a thin head, body is very dark brown and clear. Aroma of light cocoa. Taste is chocolate, molassis, not much in the way of hops. Fairly light bodied. Finish brings out some nice roasted malts and bitter hops.

porterdude (170) - Bellingham, Washington, USA - NOV 11, 2005
On tap and bottle. Poured a deep mahogany brown with no head. Smelled of rotten fruit and bad feet, I knew right away that this must have been infected or somehting, so i ask the bar keep and he has a bottle of it, opened it and it smelled exactly the same..... not a good sign. Took one sip and i didn’t taste any chocolate or dunkel, just more bleu cheese and sour grapes. I really want to beleive that the bottle and keg were infected, but somehow I don’t think so. Not good, not good at all.

A fine dark beer that is good with food. Not "write home" delicious, but is remarkable in its non-offensiveness.
