Has a wonderful nutty aroma and flavor. Deep brown color with no head. A great dunkel, and a very easy beer to drink.

Draft at Urban Chestnut. Pours a murky deep brown with a stiff off-white head. Nose is full of bread and melanoidins, richly malty, minimal hops. On tasting, rich malt, chewy on the palate. Fresh baked bread and just a phenomenal Dunkel. Rich.

I had this at Global Brew. Pours brown with a tan head. Taste sweet, Carmel, nutty. I thought this was very good. I would definitely drink this again.

UPDATED: DEC 3, 2014 The 500 ml bottle was sent to me by strykzone. Thanks Dave. It pours a dark brown with a beige long lasting head. Good lacing. Nose is roasted malts and some nuts. Medium body and a very smooth creamy mouth feel. Flavor is rich and the nuts stand out. The finish shows some grassy hops and the nuts stay prominent in the finish. Really nice beer and super easy to drink

16 oz bottle. Pours a dark ruby brown with a thin tan head that hung around. Taste is dark malts with just a faint sweetness. While good, the taste is just a little thin. Still good!

Another great beer in the great state of Missouri. Pours a muddy reddish brown. Aromas are freshly harvested grains with some musk, sweet grape and raisin too. Flavors are fresh grains, grapes, tough to pin down some of these flavors and aromas. Complex and delicious.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at the source. Pours a dark amber with a thin, but resilient, light tan head that laces. Bready aroma. Sweet caramel malt taste with a buttery biscuit character along with some mild hops. Nicely done! This is as good (or better) than Hofbrauhaus Dunkel on tap.
