Pours a sharp and clean reddish burnt brown with two fingers of tight sandy tan head. Nose is earthy with cracker-ish malt notes and a light grassy sweetness. Flavor shows bready malt with a light herbal/earthy balance and slightly metallic bitterness. Medium light body and pretty refreshing.

Draft at CLT Airport. Clear copper with a lasting film of cream. Not much aroma; maybe some light grain and toast. Delicate flavors of toasted nut, dry grass, and hints of cocoa and caramel apple. Medium body is smooth, dry and easy drinking.

On tap at Maxwell’s. Orange colored pour with a white head. Malty, sweet caramel nose; taste is similar but a bit more refreshing. Pretty good beer, and I am not really a fan of dunkels. Would drink this again, not too bad.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
A finely crafted but ultimately boring dunkel. Pours a light brown with a fleeting head. Some lacing. Aroma shows some caramel, noble hops and a hint of cocoa. Flavor is much the same. Even keeled and balanced with a bit of a rise in bitterness at the finish. A match for most lunch and dinner fare.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
22 oz. bottle. Dark brown color with a medium, bubbly, tan head that dissipates quickly to nothing. Light coffee aroma, with some brown sugar, cinnamon, and some rye. Very sweet and malty, with some very light earthy, hop bitterness in the finish. Medium to heavy body, chalky, and sticky. Overall, this is a nicely balanced, simple, but tasty beer.
