Sampler at brewpub. Pours dark brown with a khaki head. Leaves some lacing in the glass. Lots of caramel malt on the nose and tongue. As others have noted it’s almost syrupy. Finished fairly clean. Interesting. magsinva (1444) - Virginia, USA - AUG 29, 2017
Draft @ Exile - My first dunkel. Pours deep clear reddish brown with a white head. This one is pure wheat toast with a little caramel sweetness to keep it from being too dry. Very nice! Drake (14109) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 27, 2017

Aroma - syrupy kind of malt, a little toast, a touch of roast, and some birch like quality. Nuffield (4202) - Roseville, Minnesota, USA - NOV 13, 2016
Appearance - the body is a clean dark amber, with good nucleation. The head is 2" and beige, and settles into a layer of filmy suds.
Taste - has a kind, slightly sweet syrupy malt. There is a slight toast and roast about the malt. There is a small hint of birch oil or sassafras, doubtful it’s in the batch, but it has that quality in place.
Palate - medium body, texture is velvety, the carbonation is average, the finish is slightly tannic.
Though with a slightly muted nose, the flavors are good, especially early on, when the maltiness stretches as far as caramel and chocolate, and it rounds into a solid breadiness. But the appearance signaled that it might be a bit flat (some early carbonation) and indeed, the palate just limped home rather disappointingly. O.k. enough in some ways, but nothing to recommend. mmather (187) - Colorado, USA - SEP 15, 2016
Nice dark amber color, aroma of caramel. Smooth, malty slight hint of hop bitterness. A very nice American version of the German Classic. mjmoen (610) - - AUG 12, 2016
