omhper (25139) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - FEB 23, 2017
Keg at Ginger Man, Plano. Clear mahogany colour, small head. Rich coffee aroma. Mid dry with light-medium body and clean, rounded mouthfeel. Coffee and toast. Mid bitter grassy finish. While the malt character does not up to my expectations from the brewery name it is a pretty good dunkel, on the roasty side.

crossovert (12934) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JAN 2, 2015
355ml bottle. Looks nice, good tannish head, dark hazed amber/brown body, nose is bakers chocolate and roasted malt. Flavor has a lot of coffee and roasted malt, it comes off more as a porter than a dunkel.

deyholla (11605) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - MAR 15, 2014
Sampled at the 2014 Untapped festival in Fort Worth. Pours a very hazy brown with a slight amber hue and a tan head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma is mainly notes of dark grains and dark bread. Flavor has the same dark grains and dark bread notes with a hint of bitter coffee underlying.

12 oz bottle. From Rosebud butternuts. A big thank you to Eric!
Dark reddish brown colour with a small tan head. The aroma is roasted malt, mild coffee, dark chocolate and mild bitterness. The flavour is almost milky stout like. Roasted malt, mild milky sweetness, mild coffee, dark chocolate and some mild balancing hops. Very balanced and tasty.

shrubber85 (11408) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - MAY 25, 2015
Bottle. Coffee, chocolate malt and hay aroma. Dark brown with large tan head. Sweet chocolate malt and moderately bitter herbal quinine flavor. Good body. Good - very hoppy for a dunkel.

hopscotch (11104) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - SEP 16, 2010
Hand bottle… Clear, very dark, mahogany lager with a mid-sized, creamy, khaki head. Good retention. The nutty aroma presents pistachios and almonds intermingled with mild notes of chocolate and coffee. Light to medium-bodied and mildly creamy with gentle carbonation. The well-balanced flavor provides a modest note of chocolate and a splash of espresso. A bit thin. Crisp, watery, refreshing finish. This must be the lager equivalent of a brown ale. Thanks to ericandersnavy for providing the large sample!
