Oakes (15805) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 5, 2012
Draft, Zeke’s. Amber brown colour. The aroma is a mix of caramel and toast. Sweet but light body. Has some light caramel character. Lacks either the fullness or the earthiness of the best examples.

Bottle from Belmont Party. Poured clear brown color with an average frothy brown head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate dark malty aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium toasted sweet flavor with a medium sweet finish of moderate duration. My expectations where met.

crossovert (11410) - Illinois, USA - MAR 6, 2011
12 oz green bottle. Ditch the green, Spaten. Pours a dark ruby brown with an off-white head and no lacing. Skunked dunkel. This one is skunked but below it you get the amazing munich dark malts. It is fruity and carmally and wonderful. I’m docking it points though for the use of the green bottle. Taste wise this is one of the less sweeter versions of the style though it sticks on your tongue a hit heavier than others. It is just an abundance of dark syrupy malt flavors that excite the palate but this one is one of the lesser Munich Dunkels. Hofbrau dunkel also comes in the green bottle but I’ve always gotten it fresh, now that is how you do Dunkel, this one is sorta like, meh, but good.

Pours chocolate with some mocha head. From Half Time. Maltish aroma. Average mouthfeel. Very good drinkability, though very sweet.
