Großer Kurfürst – Named after one of the German Battleships that scuttled along with the rest of the German Fleet at Scapa Flow in 1918. A Munster-Style Dunkel dark brown in color with a strong malt aroma. Crisp but full bodied, it finishes with a hint of baker’s chocolate. 22 IBU 5.8% a.b.v.

UPDATED: DEC 12, 2009 On tap at Three Floyds, served in a .5L dimpled mug. Clear, dark brown pour with a one-finger thick head of tight tan foam that slowly settled, leaving some nice lacing behind. The aroma was mild cocoa and bittersweet chocolate. The flavor upped the ante just a bit with some stronger chocolate and cocoa notes, a touch of roast, and a hint of dark fruit skins at the finish. Tasty and clean. Medium-bodied with some cleansing carbonation. The finish was somewhat abrupt, but this makes the beer superiorly sessionable. No palate fatigue, just rich, flavorful beer. This may be their best lager to date. Can’t wait for the new batch of Ham on Rye. Nicely done!

Had on tap at FFF over holidays. Poured to a dark cocoa brown, withtan head that disipated fairly quickly and left okay lacing. Although nose was a pleasant chocolate-caramel mix, the body was very thin and watery, and the taste a little too much on the sweet side. In the end, I felt like I was drinking a cold, watered down Swiss Miss. Not one of FFF’s best.

On tap and Three Floyds Brewpub.
Served in a dimpled mug. Offers up some very familiar dunkel aromas and flavors that remind me of visiting Germany and drinking dunkel for the first time a few years ago. Sweet, malty, with a crisp finish. This is easy to drink, not over hopped at all, and is a pretty genuine German dunkel creation.

Wasn’t sure of the style at first... pours medium brown color, with a thin airy head. Not much of an aroma, but has a noticeable roasted malt and coffee flavor. Wasn’t bad, but defintely not one of my favorites from 3F

1/2L dimpled stein at FFF. Pours clear and dark brown with a substantial, but quickly fading head. Aroma is roasted malt, cocoa, and yeast esters. Flavor follows, and adds date character instead of the expected banana/clove. Semi-sweet, but with a dry finish. Not exactly true to style, but incredible nonetheless.

Billed as a Dunkelweizen on menu. [A] Smells malty. Wheat, hay, chocolate, some coffee, banana, lager, and a touch of smoke. [A] Very dark brown pour into dimpled Stein. $6/.5L Short lived creamy soda head. Hard to see through, but still transparent. [F] Wheaty base, covered by chocolate, coffee. With a crisp, semi-citrusy hop. ALMOST reminiscent of Perkulator. Not quite. Been awhile. [P] Medium to light bodied. Very crisp and clean roasty finish. Drinkable. [O] Quite a session. Good all around. Not overwhelming in any aspect. I would almost take this over Rob the Bruce in bottles.Cause its usually malty swamp water by the time I get it, anyway. Not a huge beer. But well done.
