Draft @ Flossmoor Station, Flossmoor, IL. Pours a dark brown color with a small off-white head. Has a slightly roasted malty fruity caramel aroma with some grainy hints. Fruity malty caramel flavor with some weak hints of chocolate. Has a fruity malty grainy caramel finish. JaBier (8518) - Capital City, Ohio, USA - DEC 30, 2009
Sample at Flossmoor. Dark brown pour with a medium tan head. Malty and fairly roasty aroma; does not smell like a lager. Roasty and caramelly malt flavor that is tasty and also is not reminiscent of a lager. Won’t get any complaints out of me there. I like dunkels that taste more like American browns. gws57 (1276) - Saint Charles, Illinois, USA - DEC 22, 2009
Had this one on draught at the brewpub in Flossmoor, Illinois. Hazy dark brown pour with a foamy, tan head, a light malt and soy sauce nose. Flavors of chocolate, coffee, soy sauce and cherry dominate this one. Soft finish. Nice! lithy (2996) - Capital of Appalachia, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 22, 2009
Red-brown, beige cover. Sweet sugar, burnt caramel aroma. Taste is again burnt sugar, toasty, nuts. 3Faveryrogue (181) - Aslip, Illinois, USA - DEC 15, 2009
A - Some dark roasty malt, coffee, chocolate, banana, lager yeast
A - Brown, almost black into a MORE than sufficient imperial pint.
F - Sweet chocolate, malt, caramel, fruit, and breadiness.
P - Crisp lagery finish. Sweet , roasty caramel. Not bodied well.
O - This was definitely a chore to drink in my book. A pint was too much. Generous 3, as it wasn’t bad all around, and I have had worse.

Tap at Flossmoor. Dark brown pour with red highlights. Offwhite head. Aroma of caramel and toast, malty taste. Pretty good stuff. phaleslu (11074) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - DEC 1, 2009
Draft at the brewpub. Pours a brown copper color with a beige head that laces the glass. Aroma of caramel, brown sugar, sweet roasted malt, hops, banana, and dark fruit. Flavor matches the nose pretty well, with more of a yeasty, malty, bready character to it. Medium bodied, with a roasty finish. In the midst of sampling all of the beers available at the brewpub, this one didn’t stand out at all. But I should admit that dunkels are not my favorite beers, and this is not bad at all. tjthresh (1873) - Greenfield, Indiana, USA - NOV 27, 2009
UPDATED: NOV 28, 2009 Tap at the pub. Pours mostly brown with some nice lighter colored edges. Nice clean malty toasted flavors and aromas. Easy drinking body. I really love well made German style lagers from American breweries. RAYBOY01 (2010) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - NOV 11, 2009
Too sweet by half and very, very cloying even to my old, played-out tastebuds. Very sweet caramel flavors, toffee. chocolate, and just a hint of hop bitterness in the very far distance. Just not easy to drink. SrSilliGose (3325) - pouring bus, New Brunswick, CANADA - NOV 8, 2009
