This is an evenly balanced beer with a dark malty start and a mild hop finish. No real complexity here and perhaps a little watery, but this dunkles will do the deal if you just want a dark beer for a relaxing moment. omnivore (270) - San Francisco, California, USA - JUN 30, 2004

Biersch, Seattle. Pretty typical dunkel actually, failry authentic German style. Doughy, caramel and slightly toasty flavours. This is OK.
(Draught) Pours a dark amber color with an average sized off-white head. Rich caramel and malt aroma. Roasted malt and caramel flavor. RaginCajun (320) - Houston, Texas, USA - MAY 27, 2004
This was one quality brew. The best Gordon Biersch I’ve had. Very dark red color with plenty of malt and hops to go around. Perhaps a little watered down, but I enjoyed it nonetheless.

On tap in Hawaii. Dark brown in color with an averaged sized tan head. Nutty, roasted and malty smells and tastes. This was my 1st Dunkel style and it wasn’t that bad (I liked it more than other Gordon Biersch Beers). DanielBrown (4528) - Birmingham (via Leicester), West Midlands, ENGLAND - MAY 12, 2004
On tap at Gordon Biersch, Mission Valley, San Diego. Chocolate brown, translucent colouring. Thin topping of spaced-out lacing man. Smells a bit like plastic and marzipan - not the most pleasant combination in the World. A fairly pleasant taste, but tinged with a certain oddness, as per the aroma. Choc and cream on the whole, perhaps like bourbon biscuit or a donut. Fairly strong on the finish. Only OK. unclebleen (620) - California, USA - APR 3, 2004
Pours a nice brown color...looks quite good. Lacing is very good. Aroma is sweet and malt with some light burnt/roasted notes. Flavor is sweet and roasted. Body is thin but not watery. The best of the GB beers that I tried at the brewpub. bitter (1136) - Henderson, Nevada, USA - MAR 11, 2004
on tap GB: good looking beer, dark brown with large tan head in a nice GB glass. malt nose, mostly roasted malt character. pretty good all around dunkles, only had about 3 of this style so not much to compare to. 21iceman40 (1735) - Grafton, Wisconsin, USA - FEB 23, 2004
dark, not black though, maybe some purple in it with an off white head that is moderate. Smells much like fresh veggies and some nuts, nutty organic taste to it.
