blank (996) - Austin, Texas, USA - NOV 7, 2004
A good attempt at a dunkle. I liked this one alot, but it had a mild aftertaste that i found rather annoying. Fairly smooth with a decent body. jgb9348 (6579) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - OCT 28, 2004
Dark cola coloured body with a frothy tan head, almost non-existant. Aroma of roasted malt, pit fruit, nuts and some raisins. Medium-bodied; Nice full roasty malt flavour with a good long-lasting pit fruit sweetness. Aftertaste lingers and lasts quite a while. Overall, a good overall dunkel-the best beer from the brewpub and recommended if anyone visits the facility. I sampled this on draught on 29-September-2004 at the brewpub on 9th & F in Washington, D.C. BückDich (5477) - McCall, Idaho, USA - OCT 9, 2004

(Draft: Gordon Biersch Brewing Co. in San Diego, CA) Decent enough and enjoyable, I usually order 1 Dunkles each time I go to Gordon Biersch (where the meatloaf rocks BTW!); This medium bodied brew has a toasty, malty flavor as the main focus; It’s moderately sweet, lightly hoppy, mildly bitter, with a slight sourness toward the finish; Not much aroma, being just vaguely malty; Mahogany color; Tan head has average size on the pour, but fades to a thin sheen within a few minutes; Lots of interesting spiderweb lacing is left on the glass pobenohne (504) - Northern Liberties, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 3, 2004
On draft at the GB in Memphis. Delicious. Kind of like a baby double bock (but not a bock), nice malt, rich palate. jefcon (1935) - Arlington, Virginia, USA - AUG 19, 2004
Not that bad aromas of malt and some chocolate, but the watery nature of the beer in the glass translates to a watery palate. A weak contender -- maybe I just don’t care for the style. Gorbalev (3000) - Ontario, CANADA - JUL 11, 2004
Not bad. On tap at Whitby, On. location. Deep brown colour, large tanned head. Nice slightly hoppy aroma. Love the cloudy, dirty look to this beer. Taste is a little less interesting, but surprisingly thin given the look. Decent finish. Probably the best beer of I’ve here so far. MrRomero (1976) - Nolanville, USA - JUL 8, 2004
On tap at the Honolulu location: Listed as 5.13% ABV. Pours a cloudy reddish brown with a medium beige head. Fruity flavor of grapes. Light malt aroma.
