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.

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.

Sample at the New Hope, PA location. Dark cloudy brown, decent head. Bready malt, bananas in the nose...dark caramelized banana/chocolate flavor, dryish and a bit sour to finish, softly carbonated.

Beerman6686 (4301) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 16, 2011
this poured a medium to darker brown with a beige head. Aroma was very light dark chocolate powder and medium toasted malts. Taste was a bit over carbed, lightly toasty some grassy german hops. Eh.

Tap at Philly location, super drinkable and quite good. Pours blackish brown with a tan head. Nose is sweet, malty and rich. Taste is sweet, malty, quite well balanced and rich, yummy american dunkle.

PilsnerPeter (3028) - Flushing, New York, USA - SEP 22, 2009
Tap at the Philly location: Amber bronze pour with a lacing light tan head. Sweet doughy dark Munich malts- some maltose and wort character. Creamy body a bit sweet- some nondescript sweetness- a tad doughy without enough hop character. Not bad- just needs some more spiciness/bitterness.

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.

Walt (2449) - Austin, Texas, USA - OCT 4, 2005
From Triumph New Hope: Pour is caramel color thin off white head...smell is a little sweet...taste is herbal grainy with a sourness that I don’t think is supposed to be there...

illinismitty (2270) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - MAY 15, 2007
UPDATED: MAY 21, 2007 Draft at Philly location. Pours a deep copper with a fluffy off white head. Sugary dark fruit aroma. Initial flavor of toasted malt and bread grains with moderate sweetness. Finish is mildly bitter. Not bad.

whaleman (2178) - North Wales, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 22, 2007
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.
