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.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bold smelling munich malts reach their pinnacle in a toasted grain, bready medley. The body is clear light amber, the head fierce and lasting. Pleasantly biscuity malts walk into coffee territory fast, deciding to spend more time in the cereal neighbourhood. Really cracker like, with a bite of floral and earthy hops added. Almost smoky undertones. Medium bodied, a bit sweet, but the balance remains great except for a slightly watery finish.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

Wow, this one surprised me as there was (thankfully, for me) no roasty/toasty/smoky flavor or aroma. Instead, this tasted much like one of the finer examples of an "American Dark Lager" with some caramel sweetness, and light hopping. The coloring is dark and the aroma leans towards malty. Slighty bitter in the after, there was also something nutty and biscuity about this beer. I like it.

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.
