Chudwick (2215) - Cincyucky, Kentucky, USA - OCT 4, 2011
Draft in a pint glass. pours clear amber with light off white head and limited lacing. Aroma is caramel malts and light hops. Start is sweet and ends lightly bitter. Palate is a little oily and body is medium to light. All around good beer, but nothing special. Glad to have finally had a good beer from this brewer (special thanks to the bartender for insisting).

Pours a brown color with an off-white head. Aroma is sweet with caramel malts and some slight roasted malts. Flavor is also sweet with pretty much all caramel malts, and a hint of some roastiness.

Drake (8981) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - AUG 11, 2011
12 ounce bottle from Belmont Party Supply. Pours a clear dark brown color with a medium sized fizzy tan head that fades very quickly. Aroma of earthy notes, dark malts and the faintest bit of fruitiness. The taste is tart malts, raisins, toffee, dates, cherries. Thin-medium bodied. Solid beer. Quite drinkable.

decaturstevo (5215) - decatur, Tennessee, USA - AUG 9, 2011
Deep copper with light tan head and lace. Roasty caramel malt and some earthy hops. Roasted malt, sweet caramel, and a very light bitter. A bit thin but still a nice beer.

Nephilium (1413) - Ohio, USA - JUL 27, 2011
Not much there in the aroma department, just a hint of roast. Pours a clear light red, with a thin off white head. Interesting interplay between tartness and roast, with a very light mouthfeel. This is a nice drinkable beer, with not much going on.

FunkyBrewster (1518) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUL 16, 2011
12 oz bottle. Pours a deep copper with a small quickly fading white head. Aroma is sweet and caramel malty with some toasty notes, honey and molasses and a touch of dark fruits. Flavor starts with a sweet caramel and toast, a bit more dark fruit through the middle and a crisp roast in the light bitter finish. Medium-light to medium body and a sharper carbonation. Not a bad dunkel but could use more body.

Capa (2031) - Manama, BAHRAIN - JUN 15, 2011
Deep amber with a firm white head. Toasted malts, light fruit, a hint of sour, and a bit of molasses in the aroma. Medium, thinish body. Flavor is light toasted malt, fruits, a bit sour, and some caramel. Decent.

DrSilverworm (6962) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAY 16, 2011
12oz bottle. Nice, clear amber color, medium white head. One of the better dunkels I have had, nice medium body and not excessively dark -- still drinkable. Nicely balanced. Pleasant roasted aroma. Oily texture. [spilled some while clumsily opening]. Not terribly drinkable, but may be getting better halfway through.

In contrast to the disaster that was from a few hours north Rivertown’s beers seem to have promise. This dunkel makes me want to sample the others that I picked up in the short term as I work through a huge backlog. Southern Ohio could use a brewery like this as the selection seems to be somewhat lacking there. I hope they can make it work. Check them out if you are in the area.

Aroma / Appearance - Semi-opaque rusty liquid bobbed in the glass like waves at sunset. The head was the color of gingerbread crumbs providing a nice Christmas atmosphere. Wheat, chocolate nibs, and toasted bread with a slight layer of cherry jam was sweet on the nose.

Flavor / Palate - The depth of rye, chocolate, and cherries was very easy on the palate. Fluid and well balanced it retains interest for quite a while. A good value it isn’t the most complex dunkel but it does represent the style well. This is one I would consider revisiting in the future.
