UncleKorm (748) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - JUL 21, 2014
Bottle poured a clear brown hue w/ medium creamy tan head and minor lacing. Moderate sweet malty aromas. Initial flavor is moderate sweet w/ a faint bitter finish. Tastes are brown sugar, dark breads, molasses, and malt. Medium bodied, creamy mouthfeel and a dry finish.

Decent dunkel. Aroma was big and delicious. Strong malt backbone with fresh baked bread and caramel. Pour was a hazy dark brown with a thin off white ring for a head. Taste was OK. Heavy roasted malt and caramel flavors with notes of toffee in the finish. Little to no carbonation is what hurt this beer. A little bubbles would’ve taken this beer a long way

This is my third in a row from this brewery and I am quite excited it is not terrible. This one actually smells and tastes like a German beer style. It pours a nice chestnut bronw w/ a fine-bubbled, large but short-lived head. It smells of caramel, cherries and a bit of almond along w/ some alcohol heat, which is strange for a low-gravity brew. This is mildly sweet with mild carbonation, which brings out some more nutty oxidized character. I suspect this may be either old, poorly brewed or mistreated but it actually worked out OK in this particular bottle. I would actually probably buy this again if I had any certainty that this beer actually normally tasted like this and I didn’t just have some random good luck w/ a bottle w/ beneficial oxidation.

Nice pig label. The b0dy is a clear chestnut c0l0r t0pped by a tall, pale tan head. The ar0ma is w0rty with0ut getting t00 sweet and has a splash 0f mineral water t0 it. It tasted rich and malty, caramel/toffee, again n0t t00 sweet, with a t0uch 0f ash. I liked this 0ne.

drjay44 (2587) - Salida, Colorado, USA - JAN 30, 2014
500 ml. bottle. 5% ABV per the label. Pours a medium, light beige head, over a clear light brown (SRM 20) body....nose is light toasted malts with toast, biscuit, hints of toffee/caramel, minimal esters....taste is slightly sweet with chocolate, hints of toffee/caramel, light hop bitterness and light spice....mouth feel light of medium, carbonation low with light acid. This is a quite typical Dunkel with moderate roasted malts, light hops and not a tremendous amount of character. Rating above to my enjoyment, rating at the right to style. BJCP 8/3/15/4/7

CanIHave4Beers (3198) - Pouring Bus, Iowa, USA - NOV 7, 2013
Pours a pretty reddish brown color with a small head.

The aroma is pretty sweet, with lots of caramel, toasted marshmallow, and some mild roastiness.

The flavor is not as sweet as the aroma lets on, although it’s a moderately sweet beer… flavors of cola, some mild bitterness, light earthy hops, & nuttiness. Some nice flavors here for sure, s’a pity that cola seems to be the dominant one….

The palate is bubbly but really pretty thin.

wlajwl (3772) - Quad Cities, Iowa, USA - SEP 19, 2013
Aroma is strong toffee/caramel, earthiness and a hint of spice. The flavor is toffee/caramel, light fruit, thin body and a odd off tangy note in the finish.

Beergeek23322 (2190) - Chesapeake, Virginia, USA - SEP 18, 2013
January 2012. Bottle from Total Wine. Dark amber color with a white head. Aromas of sweet fruit, caramel, malt and spices. Not bad at all.

Silphium (3161) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - SEP 2, 2013
Bottle. Deep red-brown body, thin beige head/ring. Nose of toffee, prune, and toast. Sweet body, with prune, fig, and raisin toast, some slick syrupy sweetness. Slight oxidation. Fairly rich with a pretty good bite.

16.9oz bottle, thanks to Alicia M. for bringing this back for me. Shared at Natifest 2013. Mildly hazy golden orange amber color. Minimal off-white head. No lace sticks.. Chocolate, dark fruit aroma. Light carbonation, kind of soft. Medium-plus body. Dry finish. Moderate sweet taste, light bitter. Some bigger nuttiness. This is a pretty good dunkel. A pleasant surprise, as the hefe I had from them was really disappointing.
