COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Created by Corey Martin.
Corey has been working on his Munich Dunkel for some time and the result is this amber, medium-bodied brew. With a nice malty backbone, this lager has roasty, slightly spicy notes and a traditional doughy character from the yeast. It is well worth the time he took to perfect it.

Malty, earthy flavors. Perhaps some notes of toasted almonds and hearty wheat bread. Some slight bitterness, but mostly a toasty mouthfeel. Average stuff.

(bottle - 12 oz) Dark brown pour with a creamy tan head. Malty and bready aroma with some light hop bitterness. Flavor is pretty standard for the style. Sweet bread malts with a light hop bite at the end.

Transfer from BA review on 3-25-12 - Poured from bottle into pint glass Appearance – Pours a beep brown color with a huge billowy off white head. The head is very porous with huge bubbles trapped within. The head fades very slowly to give some nice lacing. Smell – Sweeter toffee aromas are the most prevalent. These are mixed with a bit of banana and some good breadiness. Taste – Malty through and through. A nice roasted malt flavor is present all the way through the taste experience. Up front it is a bit on the medium dry side and seems to gain sweetness as the taste experience advances; mainly toffee and brown sugar flavors come into play. Toward the end the a little bit of fruit flavors come into play and leave a nice smooth taste on the tongue. Mouthfeel – The mouthfeel is a bit on the creamier side with a lower level of carbonation. This makes for a very easy drinking and very enjoyable mouthfeel giving the nice malty flavors a chance to really permeate the tongue. Overall – Very easy drinking with a nice taste profile. I would say it would make a great beer for a lighter fish meal (balancing out the lightness with some nice thick, but not too thick, maltiness) or for session drinking with a friend on a cooler fall day.

(Backlog) 12 oz Bottle. Clear, brown colored with burgundy tinges, and has an off white head. The smell is malts, dough, nuts, rich, savory, and deep. The taste is more basic, malts, roast, and ok.

Appearance: Deep garnets and burnt ambers under a light khaki head which fades into a blotchy layer that grows thicker as it sticks to the glass.
Nose: Pumpernickel and dark stone fruits such as prunes and raisins. Tendrils of European chocolates weave in and out. Whole grain breads intermingle with the pumpernickel breads.
Palate: Smooth silky mouthfeel carry a gentle river of treacle, prunes, and raisins across my tastebuds. Prune infused raisins breads and pumpernickel breads. Slightly dry tannic finish of apple skins keeps it from growing too sweet with the dark fruits. Chocolate truffle powder and nutmeg in the breath.
Final Thoughts: A fine American craft beer example of a German style dunkel, aka, dark lager. Fresh moist dark breads and fruits truly live up to the standard of “liquid bread”. A tasteful winner of Samuel Adams honorable LongShot homebrew contest.

The grainy flavor of pale malt has some pot caramel notes coming through as it opens and hints of roasted biscuit malt for a moment in the clean finish. There is a spicy hop hint in the aftertaste.

beerguy101 (5276) - Newark, California, USA - JUL 6, 2013
Sampled on 7/5/2013. This Dunkel pours a dark brown color from a 12oz bottle. Small to medium sized white foamy head. With nice lacing and decent retention. The aroma is fruity and sweet, bready and slightly roasty. A medium bodied dunkel. The malts are roasty, fruity and sweet, hint of dark fruit. The hops are herbal. Decent carbonation. A fairly smooth, slightly sweet dunkel. Its missing the big sweetness that one would expect in a dunkel, but it has enough sweetness to carry the flavor. Very drinkable. Mouthfeel is full. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is slightly sweet.

Bottle. Dark brown color with a tan head. Smell is slightly spicy, malty, and some hops. Taste is pretty spot on to any dunkel you would find from Germany. Rich, malty flavor, high carbonation. Not a bad effort.

12oz. served into a SA perfect pint. A - Amber body with an airy tan head that takes its time sinking. Leaves behind a few specks of bubbles on the sides of the glass. S - Rich malt, steely caramel, sweet bread, molasses, nutmeg. T - Brown bread crust, toasty, sweet caramel malt, nutty, hints of nutmeg, burnt brown sugar comes out on the finish. M - Moderate carbonation, medium body, soft and chewy, smooth feel. Simple, clean, malty, and tasty. I wouldn’t seek this out but I would definitely drink it again. Serving type: bottle 04-09-2012

Brown pour, 2 fingers of off-white head. Lots of lace here. Aroma of fresh bread, Caramel, toasted malt. fresh bread up front, rye, caramel, very slight hint of yeast, Malty, toasty, Slightly spicy. Medium body. Getting better as it warms. Wish I had some schnitzel to go with this - a fairly good liquid-bread dunkel. *bumped up a point as this is getting very drinkable as it warms.

Pours deep brown with an enormous lasting big bubbly head, leaving lots of lace. Bold malty aroma. Smooth creamy, easy drinking dunkel. FInishes sweet. Although not spectacular taste, I enjoyed it. Dry sugary aftertaste.
