COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Long ago in Bavaria, they made two kinds of beer: helles (pale) and dunkel (dark). If you think all dark beers are roasty and rough, you're in for a surprise. Bottom fermentation and extended lagering smooth out the rough edges so that anyone can slam a dunkel.

Clear, shiny copper body with a pillowy off-white head. Nice malty aroma with grape and apple notes plus sweet toffee and toasted bread crusts. Pleasant yeast profile with subtle floral hops. Medium sweet, malty flavor is lightly grainy with toast and fruit characters. Emergent, grainy bitterness. Smooth and palatable. A good American dunkel and another solid session beer from Triumph.

Dickinsonbeer (5076) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - APR 7, 2007
Oh tap at Philly location. Pours a nice deep amber, light brown with light carbonation, yet a frothy sticky lasting beige head, and some good lace. Aroma is toasty and biscuity with tons of medium toast munich, sweet bready doughy malts, and hints of chocolate. Warm toasty bready flavor with more munich, with almost a sharp sweetness, cut by the acrid chocolate and dark malt hints. Good full body and mouthfeel for the style. Very smooth and easy to drink. One of the best Dunkels I have had. Similar to Ayinger.

Auburn colored with a medium white head. Aroma is malty-sweet with some nuts detectable. Taste is a nice malty mix of brown sugar, sweet grains. Decent Dunkel.

27.08.07 Growler from Princeton, also sampled about a year ago in New Hope, also sampled at GABF05. Paler cola brown color, lightly hazed, with crazy lasting cream colored head. First whiff is of old and soggy grain, like a leaky shed that’s filled with seed and leaf litter, and that’s a comforting smell to me so I’m digging it. The first time I sampled this (at New Hope) it was a week or so before its release and the beer was a bit harsh with the last bite of its dark malts, it was also a bit phenolic, but that has waned with ample time in the tank, I guess. Now the beer smells and tastes of young grains, fresh but wet malts, a slight herbs de provence note, and background banana and nutmeg(?). Long wet finish, neither sweet nor bitter nor astringent. Tobacco. My major gripe is that the stuff is too carbonated for my tastes with seemingly large bubbles that can be a bit harsh. This is less an issue with this growler.

jdjuice (334) - Kumamoto, JAPAN - APR 9, 2006
Aroma of yeast. First taste is kind of unremarkable maltiness with a hint of sourness. Beer only has redeeming qualities with the finish, where some nice roastiness comes out. All in all, not as big or flavorful as I’d like a dunkel. Eh.

Cornboy (424) - Eastampton, New Jersey, USA - JAN 3, 2006
Tap - Princeton - Poured light amber in color with little head. Slight toasty malt sweetness in the nose. Hops subdued, almost nonexistent keeping within the style. A bit on the bitter side in the finish and a bit thin for my taste. Will rerate next time its up.

Tap in Princeton. Poured brown with a sizable white head. More foamy then anything else. Smell had grain, herbal tea, caramel and coffee. Taste was kind of bitter for my taste considering the style. Pretty good but one dimensional.

On tap at the New Hope location. Pours a red amber with a large bubbly light tan head. The aroma is on the lighter side with a general malty sweetness, some caramel and smoked malts. Flavors of the same...seems to maybe have some spice in there that I cannot pinpoint. Nice and smooth overall.
