Our darkest year round beer; however, looks can be deceiving. Dunkel boasts brilliant crimson hues from the large amounts of Munich malts used, which creates a fuller bodied beer. The decoction brewing process also adds depth and richness. Bitterness is moderate, with just enough to balance out any sweetness from the malt. Dunkel is smooth, rich and complex, but does not finish heavy.

Draft at lodge. Pours a chestnut brown with a small creamy head. Nose is light sugars, not enough nuts, some light syrup notes. Palate is dry clean and simple. Flavors of light brown sugar and light nuts. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

12oz bottle. Pours a clear mahogany with a light beige head. Aroma is light roasted malt. Taste is the same but lacks the usual dunker sweetness. Overly yeasty. Very short finish. Light-medium body. Too carbonated.

Pours a clear reddish mahogany. Taste is dark with a smokey peppery bite up front which blends nicely with a hint of maltiness. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Single bottle from Julio’s. Pours out a very beautiful clear mohogany brown. A seriously good looking brew! Light tan head settles to a thin lace. Light roasty aromas and flavors. Quite smooth and drinkable. Clean malty finish.

Mep3222 (1273) - East Greenbush, New York, USA - JUN 15, 2016
Caramelized malty aroma and flavor. Has an enjoyable malty sweetness, but still being easy drinking and not sweet. Lager funk is not really there. Nice dark malty beer. Really quite enjoyable and well done for a normal beer style. I like it. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

AirForceHops (6185) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - MAY 4, 2016
12 oz. bottle purchased at Prost, North Hampton, NH. Deep ruby or brown type color, thin tan head. Aroma is rich with Munich malt showing, chocolate hints, burnt sugar, dried fall leaves. Earthy

The flavor has a bready character with the same earthy malts that are found in the aroma. Sweetness balance by some spicy hop bitterness. The body is decent for a lager yet leans on the lighter side. Overall for the style it is pretty correct.

Pours a three finger light tan head that fades slowly to a thin layer leaving some lace. Deep clear amber color. Good carbonation and medium bodied. Light chocolate nose and flavor is almost burnt chocolate, some maltiness. $2.35 for a 12oz bottle at Bert’s Better Beers Hooksett, NH

Quick3Beers (947) - East Falmouth, Massachusetts, USA - FEB 16, 2016
Pours a dark brown from a bottle. Not picking up on much aroma or flavor. I do have a cold but I was able to pick up on notes rather easily for other beers I’ve had tonight. Rather insipid.

Maxbier (890) - Maryland, USA - JAN 25, 2016
Dark tobacco brown color with off white head. Maple roast malty dunkel aroma. Wow, really good dunkel, so many dunkel a are just a malty flat mess. Certainly malty but clean without the yeast flavor of an ail that just not pair well with a malty beer like this. Biscuits, roast, hints of hob bitter, and a "clean" finish. Thanks dlovell2 for sharing.
