This is just about the best thing since sliced bread! A true dunkel-lover's heaven, with a hearty body and taste that's sweet, yet not cloying. The malt comes through in buckets, but is just the right mix of chocolate and whatever else is in this to make it all work. So glad me and some friends made the short trip out to the brewery as this beer is only on tap!
Keg at the brewery, 8/20/16. Dark brown, medium creamy tan head, good retention. Aroma of chocolate and roasted malt. The taste is chocolate, roasted malts, caramel, mild raisin and nuttiness. Thin-medium bodied, highly drinkable. Not perfectly executed but complex and enjoyable. Glad to have finally tried this beer! Pailhead (6543) - Rochester Hills, Michigan, USA - NOV 13, 2016
On tap: The aroma consists of mild chocolate, toffee, and nuts. It’s a dark brown with some orange highlights and a small beige head. The flavor starts with mild chocolate and caramel. The finish has light roasted nuts. It’s light-medium bodied with moderate carbonation. AWISLguy (3283) - Wisconsin, USA - OCT 11, 2016
Growler from the source. Lighter than cola brown pour. Light caramel, sweet malts, some lemon, some berries, with a touch of cocoa. Caraway and light grains in the taste raisin in the nose. Quick finish. This is somewhat sweet and grainy. Certainly very old style. Would have liked to try 10 years ago. 13.4 crossovert (13724) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - SEP 3, 2016
raft. This one seems to get waay to high of a rating on here. It is maybe thier best beer, no infection, it is low in body, not a great dunkel but drinkable. BVery (11222) - Plymouth, Minnesota, USA - SEP 3, 2011
UPDATED: DEC 30, 2013 Tap at the brewpub. This was probably my favorite sampler of this stop. Very dark brown pour - opaque. Thin white head. Faint nose of licorice and dark fruit. Slight roast in there too. Semi-creamy palate, and the taste was consistent with the aroma.

On tap at the brewpub. Pours near black wit a brown head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma is full of sweet dark grains with a bit of toffee and a hint of bitter coffee. Flavor is mainly a combination of sweet dark grains toffee, butterscotch and a hint of coffee that comes out in the finish. A bit sweet but nice. esjaygee (3904) - Oak Creek, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 14, 2011
On tap at Rowlands Calumet Brewery. Clear caramel brown with a thin tan head. Aroma is fairly mild with caramel, lightly toasted malt and a hint of butter. Taste of chocolate, roasted malt, light coffee and butter along something strange and off-putting. Body is on the thinner side. Scubatrip (610) - Annandale, Virginia, USA - AUG 30, 2010
On tap at the brewpub, pours a clear dark red with little to no head. Bready aroma, sweet malty taste with notes of vanilla, buttery, pretty good beer and one of my favorites here. ryan (3186) - Beltsville, Maryland, USA - MAR 7, 2010
Rich toffee nose with dark fruits and dusty yeast. Lightly sweet, lightly bitter taste with toffee, brown sugar, raisins and dusty yeast. Medium body is very soft with light carbonation. Brilliant stuff. nuplastikk (6414) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 19, 2009
Draft at the OF. Deep brown-black color. Deep dark malt aroma, lots of rich chocolate tones. Light crisp hop balance. Medium to full bodied, quite a nice Dunkel. Creamy and luscious, a step up from the standard version for sure. Some light coffee notes as well. Sweet toffee/caramel finish.
