3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
16.9 oz bottle. Pours a dark brown with copper-amber highlights when held up to the light; has a large beige head with some of the best retention I’ve ever seen. Aroma consists of SweeTarts, toasted nuts, grain. Taste is sweet and meaty with no bitterness. Tastes like cotton candy, caramel. Carbonation is soft and the body is medium. Not bad--or so I thought at first. It starts to get cloying about halfway through.

Sampled on 7/15/2011. This Dunkel pours a dark amber brown color from a 500ml bottle. Small to medium sized beige foamy head with nice retention and good lacing. The aroma is malty, caramel, fruity and sweet. A medium bodied Dunkel. The malts are caramel. slightly roasty, fruity and sweet. The hops are herbal and earthy. Nice soft carbonation. Nice malty sweetness. Pretty easy drinking Dunkel. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is slightly sweet.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pretty good beer. Poured with a decent sized, foamy, frothy, thick, creamy, light tan head and a little lace. Color is a clear dark brown amber. Aroma is malt, roast, fresh baked dark bread, toffee. Flavor is similar to nose with a little sweetness that’s nicely countered with the yeast, dark malt, and carbonic acid. Body is good, smooth and full yet cut again by carbonic acid. Finish is like flavor, has good length, and is clean. Session beer.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
500ml bottle. Deep burgundy brown-black. Massive, steady off-white/beige head. Mild and smooth, eay drinking dark lager. Creamy. with a mild hop balance. Some berry butterscotch notes in the finish. Thin, medium body. Straightforward, drinkable, but sort of bland. An interesting change of pace but not exactly a World Class Dunkel.

Another nice beer from these guys. Some roast in the aroma, quite a bit more in the body. Malts as well, and just a bit sweet. Really a pretty good dunkel.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle, as "dark lager", small brownish stable head, dark brown colour with a touch of reddish streaks, aroma of dark bread with just a hint of roasted coffee that is not too aromatic, flavour is dominated by a malty roastiness that is unbalanced and bitter with some chocolate creeping behind, feels light bodied inspite of the relativly strong alcoholic content. Not the greatest of dunkels.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Aroma of bittersweet chocolate, apple, raisins and roasted coffee. Appearance is very dark cola brown with frothy 1/2 in. head in my stein; this head remained quite frothy well into the beer. Flavor starts out with chocolate/roasted flavors and moves to more apple/raisins/dark fruit; the finish comes through with some lemon-kissed herbal hops. Palate was bubbly and lively. Outstanding for the style.
