COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Dark chocolate in color, you can see a wonderful reflection if you hold it up to the light. It is round and soft with the warm, sweet aroma of freshly roasted malted barley. A satisfying, malty taste, with coffee-ish tones and a hint of plummy fruitiness in the finish. Complex and beautifully balanced.

This is one of my all-time favorites. Every time i pour a bottle it reminds me of freshly-baked wheat bread. Malty, sweet but not cloying, this is a fantastic beer.

UPDATED: NOV 4, 2016 My favorite dunkel so far I think. Warm and rich. Bit of coffee and bit of roasty-ness. Yummy. Serving: Bottle

Where oh where have you gone, my old friend? Used to be widely available in Louisiana and Texas, but now nowhere to be seen. My favorite beer of all time. Great malt body, with just the right amount of hops. Full flavor and great head retention. Although it is heavy and sweet, I could drink this till I popped.

Outstanding example of Munich Dunkel. This beer pours to a beautiful, bright, deep chestnut color with a nice white head, and a good bit of carbonation. The nose on this beer is excellent with lots of good aromas of sweet malt, light toast and nuts. The palate is round and clean with lots of good sweet malt, toast and nutty malt flavor. This beer finishes with more good malt character then ends with enough herbal hop bittereness to round this one out to perfection. A great match to hearty German fare, and BBQ dishes.

The roasty maltiness in both the aroma and flavor makes this one of my favorites! A slight residual sweetness lingers nicely, making this a true classic!

UPDATED: JAN 23, 2004 Full on molasses/raisin nose. Dark, slightly reddish color with thick,quickly diminishing light brown head. Light malty bitterness around middle dissipates quickly in swallow which is ringed with earthy overtones. Dunkel done right. One of my favorites.

Poured a rich reddish-brown color producing a 1/2 inch thick head of rapidly dissipating foam. The aroma is incredible. The nose was of fresh, dark roasted malts with a hint of cocoa. The taste started with rich roasted malts, hazelnut and a hint of molasses. Hops come next nicely balancing the malt sweetness carring it through to the end. A subtle sting of espresso in the finish leave s you with the perfect mixture of sweetness and bitterness. The feel was light-medium bodied, yet creamy. This might be the best of the non-Doppelbock German beers I have sampled. This beer is fantastic and I strongly recomend this one.

Silky smooth mouth feel with balanced with enough carbonation to keep it lively. Rich taste of a dunkel without being overly malty. Good beer to have on hand to share with friends.
