ah, the "doonkel" as the waiter pronounced it. now that i think about it i don’t remember much. it didn’t have much flavor. the traditional burnt toast and nutty flavor followed by a rush of water.

Sampler at the Philly pub. Malty and grainy aroma with spicy hop notes. Clear amber brown with small white head. Sweet caramel maltiness in flavor with a medium finish and light residual spicy finish. Nice dunkel.

Pours dark with a 2 finger head. Aroma is fairly weak. A lot of sweet malt flavors, and something akin to rye on the finish.

deep brown pour with a large fluffy white head, aromas were sweet, carame and banana. i loved the flavor, a nice balance of caramel and citrusy hops, a very crisp mouthfeel and well balanced aftertaste.

Draft in Philly: dark amber with a thin white head, aroma is malty, taste is a bit malty and slightly bitter as well, decent but not something I’d order again.

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.
