Dark brown colour. Fairly bland caramelly character. Light accents of crackers and molasses. Moderate body. Sweet finish. Malts are a bit thin. Pretty standard macro dark. bhensonb (15965) - Woodland, California, USA - DEC 10, 2006
Nice and roasty malt aroma. Really dark amber/brown with a vigorous tan head. Starts quite sweet, and the carbonation is very subdued. There’s an interesting herbal/veg accent I can’t place. Works nicely with the toasted malt flavor. Nice for a change. Tmoney99 (15118) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - FEB 19, 2006
Bottle in Northern KY. Poured a murky deep amber color with an average frothy white head that lasted. Moderate burnt malt aroma. Medium body with a sticky texture. Medium burnt malt and caramel flavor with a small bitter finish of average duration. Dogbrick (14303) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - NOV 12, 2002
Tasted at the Barrelhouse Brewing Company Microbrew Fest on November 9. Dark brown color with virtually no head. Very little flavor, just a little malt with a pinch of hops. Unimpressive. crossovert (14128) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAR 15, 2011
UPDATED: NOV 7, 2013 11.2 oz green bottle, I’m hoping for no skunkage.
It pours a dark brown with a hint of reddich/orange/gold. The head is fizzy and off-white.
The smell is classic, no skunk here. It has caramel, cocoa, and dark bread. Along with this is some honey and some light husky grain. I’m not really smelling any hops.
The flavor is excellent, everything you want in a dunkel. It is smooth and caramally with some cocoa, raisin, and munich malts. The hops are present in the flavor and add a little zest to it.
It is extremely drinkable. A winner.

Bottle. Pours an almost cola brown, which was an ironic bit of foreshadowing, with a thin white head. Aroma of very sweet malt, and little else. The slight malt taste carries over to the mouth where it is joined with a good deal more soda like sweetness and an incredibly thin watery body. Finish is a bit of a letdown too, and features a slight metallic tang. slowrunner77 (13205) - Reno, Nevada, USA - OCT 15, 2014
"tried this once when the mood hot for a malty dark. not bad, not great. it satisfied the craving. about average for the style, but i generally like dunkels, so it’s an above average beer. a little on the unassuming side."
