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

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

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 (803) - 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.

Pours a deep brown with an off white head. Nose is slight roasted malt. Body is medium. Taste is under achieved roasted/dark malt with a slight - hardly detectable - sweetness that finishes dry with little bitterness. 12 oz bottle

probstblueribbon (3570) - Nepean, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 2, 2016
Pint at The Blue Stone. Very deep brown with a tight, light tan head. Restrained dark-roasted malt, clean fermentation, a bit grainy, dry, moderate bitterness, straight-forward and well made.

12 ounce bottle. Thanks John! Pours reddish brown with a decent beige head. Aroma of malt, grain, and yeast. Taste is malt, grain, yeast, and caramel. Pretty good.

Pours cola into a shaker. Off white head with little retention recedes to hug rim. Mild caramel aromas. Medium bodied with dark caramel and earthy hops turning to mild cocoa in the medium length finish.

mcox90 (1816) - Wilton, New Hampshire, USA - NOV 22, 2015
12 oz. bottle from Julio’s. Poured a dark chestnut brown with crimson edges. Thin beige head. Aroma, although weak, hints at molasses, brown sugar and dark bread. Semi sweet with more dark baked bread, burnt sugar and roasted malt. Thin palate, could of been fuller. Didn’t like it as much as I wanted to.

I want to like this beer more than I do. It’s an enjoyable and well-made brew; however, it is just a bit too sweet and really reminds me more of a brown ale at the finish. Not nuanced enough to be an appropriate dunkel lager, but still a nice beer.
