So, I’ve always kinda complained about how Warsteiner is a shitty example of German beer. Especially the Dunkel. But upon my last tasting, it started to grow on me a bit. Maybe it took pouring it into a nice clear stein to see it’s mahogany, oaky, copper color and nicely sustaining frothy white head. The aroma is rather nice too; very sweet and malty with caramel and a hint of cocoa. The flavor is the only thing that is left to be desired next to a higher quality dunkel. Yet it is still flavorful enough to enjoy while being rather light and refreshing. Cocoa and vanilla with roasted malts. Nice, medium finish. Not too shabby. But no Ayinger Altbairisch Dunkel..

BeerAndPonies (171) - Medicine Hat, Alberta, CANADA - JUN 6, 2016
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.

NikkTwist (2608) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 20, 2016
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.
