is a full-bodied, malty beer. It is our only lager beer served unfiltered, the way all beer was traditionally made years ago. Despite its dark color and rich caramel aroma, Dunkles is light in texture and smooth to drink.

Sammy (12346) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 5, 2004
licorish aroma. Unfiltered and light on alcohol. Medium chewy roast flavour. Less aggressive carbonation used. Apple, lemony and lots of malt. Sour finish

shrubber85 (11452) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - JUN 10, 2006
Tap. Maple syrup and malt aroma. Medium brown color with small head. Molasses/maple syrup and moderate malt flavor. NIce flavor but like their Weizen, a bit weak. If they could get more body, they’d really have some great beers.

hopscotch (11161) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - SEP 25, 2002
UPDATED: DEC 18, 2006 Draft... The aroma was slightly sweet and spicy. Something like cinamon. Can’t place it. Also, soapy water in the nose. Maybe they had just washed the glass. Clear, dark mohogany. Foamy, big, off-white head. Malty, but not sweet. Well balanced. A touch fruity. Slightly thin, watery mouthfeel. Lively carbonation. Finishes clean and dry. Very good beer. The restaurant in DC needs to rinse their glasses better. Dish soap ruins what is otherwise a very nice nose.

toasted malt aroma, good rich chocolate flavor with perfect sweetness and the light character of the wheat, a benchmark dunkle as would be expected from the controlled GB brewery

Draft. Oakville Darker amber, more head than the rest. Slightly tan head, with hints or roasted flavour. Better mouthfeel than the rest, but a bit on the thin side. This and their Hefeweizen were the best offerings I thought.

bb (9519) - Alamo, California, USA - JUL 30, 2014
Bottle. 25th Anniversary. Copper beer with a tan head. Nutty and caramel aroma with light toffee and light roast. Caramel and light spice flavor. Medium bodied. Caramel and light spice lingers.

PorterPounder (8074) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - OCT 19, 2005
On tap at the downtown Atlanta location. Pours a dark copper with a creamy, frothy thick white head. Aroma has hints of toffee, a smidgen of chocolate and a back end of citrus. Flavor is very pronounced with some caramel, chocolate, and a bit of citrusy hoppiness. The back end is dominated by a teriyaki-like smokiness that is interesting and enjoyable. Somewhat chewy mouthfeel. Very decent.

Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Light to medium body, watery texture, soft carbonation.

Braudog (6763) - Yorktown, Virginia, USA - AUG 11, 2002
Draft at the Las Vegas brewpub; Very dark red with chocolate foam head. Hearty but not overly heavy. Roasty taste. Adheres well to the glass. True to the German dunkles.
