thegreenrooster (3154) - St.louis, Missouri, USA - NOV 18, 2011
Pour is a dark brown with a small tan head. Aroma is sweet malts with some roasted nuts. Flavor is a little bland but there is some caramel with a roasted malt. Just not enough there to make this a good beer. So-so dunkel and maybe this is old since the last rating was in 2010.

CanIHave4Beers (3132) - 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.

beerinmarch (2830) - Washington, USA - JUL 13, 2008
From the bottle this pours brown with a soft beige head. Very watery on the palate, to soft to bring a lot of flavors through. Earthy toward the finish. The roastiness was there, but not very strong, lacked a nice smoothness that I like in dunkles. Overall I just thought this was to watery, bland flavors.

LinusStick (2814) - Moon Twp, suburb of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 3, 2014
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

Bottle shared at natifest. Pours a translucent amber with no head. The aroma has toast and caramel. Tastes the same. Lighter body.

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.

drjay44 (2565) - 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
