COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
In the old days, most dark beers had a reputation for being heavy, even sweet. Not this one. By reinterpreting some historic German traditions, including the ancient “altbier” style of Düsseldorf and adding a decidedly 21st century American twist to it, we’ve created a dark beer with a dry, refreshing character and a ton of personality. We start with a mix or pilsner and pale ale malts for a complex, dry maltiness, then layer on specialty malts that add toasty, cookie and a little dark toffee character. All of this is balanced by a hop mix that adds to Sir Dunkle’s crisp complexity. Lagering rounds off any rough edges, leaving a satisfyingly dark-beer flavor with a clean drinkability.

Dark Brown, Good Head, Some Lacing. Lightly Toasted, Light Bitter and Malty. Bland, all flavors come as one dimensional and subdued. Should be sharper and have"more balls". As is, is boring and forgettable.

Very classic taste. Approachable but nothing memorable. Second tasting had more positive feedback. Reviewed - A Brew With You, Ep. 27

pours an amber brown with a hint of ruby. medium beige head. aroma of toasted malt. good malt taste with a hint of nuttiness. A little thin with a semi sweet finish. It is pretty much what they describe. not bad, but forgettable.

Rated on 7-18-2015 at Three Rivers Brew Review, Fort Wayne, IN. (Bottle) This beer’s appearance is a small creamy, smooth beige head that is mostly lasting, copper transparent body, no visible carbonation, and no lacing. The aroma is is caramel malt and the flavor is sweet and malt. The mouthfeel is smooth and this beer is light-medium bodied. A quaffable beer that lacks character all the way around. This beer is not on my drink again list.

This bottled brew from a beer festival poured a large sized head of foamy off-white colored bubbles that were and left behind a uncarbonated transparent light brown orange colored body and an excellent lacing. . The clean mouth feel was tingly at the start with a mellow finish with a mellow malty aftertaste. The ok flavor contained notes of mild caramel mild hops and brown malt. An OK brew just nothing special.

355ml twist off. "Crispy lager" according to the label. A dunkel altbier mix? Better be a hoppy dunkel then. Dark brown/amber pour, foamy off-white head. Aroma is grain and some noble hops, smells decent but unabashedly cheap and american. Flavor is cocoaey, toasted malt, jsut malty in general, no sign of hops, not terrible but a weird beer.

Bottle from Berghoff variety pack. Pours a clear, dark mahogany color with a dark beige head. Slight lacing along the side of the glass. Aroma had roasted caramel malt notes with hints of fig and Worcestershire sauce. Flavor is a bit sweet with muted roasted notes as well. Overall not that bad but a bit weak on the flavor compared to many other dunkels.

12 oz. bottle pours a dark reddish brown with moderate tan head which leaves some lacing. Aroma is mostly caramel, with some roasted malts and bread. Taste is slightly bitter with some nuts coming out in the finish. Body is light to medium with average carbonation and an almost soapy mouthfeel. Nothing too memorable here.
