3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours like your typical dunkel, middle brown with a off white head. I think this beer is a little underrated. Lots of people have tried this in the past and simply never go back. This was a staple in my rotation when I first got into beer, and now comin back to it, I must say it holds up better then most. Bold flavors for a dunkel, yet still very easy to drink. You can get this beer everywhere, even most gas stations carry it. Add to that the low price for a 12-pack, I can get it around me for 10 bucks/per 12. Solid.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
500 ml can from Dunmore Liquor, served in a curved pint. Pours a reddish-cola shade with generous, fine, slow carbonation and a tan head that retreats to just a thin cap, leaving islands of lace. Aroma is primarily brown sugar-sweetened toasty malt with a buttery, cinnamony hint, fragrant red berries, and a faint herbal hop. Flavor-wise, the toasted malt surges forth, leaving the caramel sweetness in its wake, and hints of coffee, cocoa, charcoal, and smoke follow as the sip ends. The herbal hop hides among the roasted elements. Medium body, with a brief, pleasant lingering of the toastiness. This is a nice, soft, yet tasty dunkel that could serve as an introducing to darker beers like schwarzbier, imperial stouts, and the like.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft at Bru Craft. Clear very dark copper brown pour with a quickly diminishing foamy head. Aroma somewhat muted when cold but tastes like a (albeit a bit too shallow) proper German Dunkel. Gently dark toasted pale malts. Notes of bramble berry, sweet breads, liquorice, liver, pumpernickel, black plums, olives, ouzo, smoked meat. Great notes but none is strong enough to feel over the top. Not the best Dunkel but a truly great Dunkel.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
(333ml bottle, Beijing) Aroma: Nice nose of coffee, malt, wood. Appearance: rich brown color, off-white thick head. Taste: Coffee, grass, herbs, a bit medicinal, barrel, roasted, burnt. Palate: Quite sparkly on the tongue, crisp, tight, dry, lingering bitterness on the cheeks. Overall: Interesting beer with a decent amount of flavor and character. Not as malty as some of the heavy duty Dunkels, but that is almost a good thing. Quite roasty tasting.
