COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The Dunkel style is what many refer to as the original beer of Munich and the surrounding countryside and villages (Dorf in German) of Bavaria. This everyday beer ranges in color from amber to dark brown, depending on the amount of Munich and roasted malts used. Ours is a deep reddish brown with a rich malty flavor. The sweetness of the malt is balanced by the use of another Bavarian friend...the Hellertau hop...in this specific case Hersbrucker grown near Wolnzach, Hallertau. OG 13.2 Plato (Willi Becher)

It poured a dark brown color with a small tan head. The aroma was of caramel malts and some roasted nuttiness. The taste was similar to the aroma with some added molasses. A very tasty Dunkel.

Pour is a brown with an average tan head. Aroma is of sweet caramel malts and a real nice roasted nuttyness. Flavor is again swwet caramel malts to start then comes a bit of chestnut and molasses. A good if not above par dunkel.

While dunkel is not generally one of my favorite styles, this is really solid for the style. Pours hazy brown with a light tan smallish head. The aroma has toffee, caramel, rich toasty malt, smooth lager-ness and some hazelnut. Medium body with a good amount of gentle, but assertive and sharp, carbonation. The flavor starts drier than the aroma, but still has toffee, caramel and nuttiness. Also it has a bit cereal taste and more nuttiness. It finishes with some spiciness that probably is coming from the hops. Really well done.

(tap at tasting room) deep copper-brown with off white head. Malt aroma. Flavor is sweet malt, hint of rasins, a little earthy hops. Nice dunkel.
