Pretty solid beer, good when you want something darker but not too crazy. Well balanced brew that leans towards the malty side of things. Goes down smooth, very tasty.

Brown with a decent beige head that leaves behind some good lacing. Aroma is toffee, roasted grains. Taste is toast, malt, toffee. Malty on the palate with a slight sweetness. Good session beer.

Al naso non entusiasma, tonalitá lievi di malto e caramello. al palato é giustamente gassata, equilibrata, secca con sapori di malto, cioccolata e caramello. good.

Has that metallic and slightly fruity taste that most dunkels seem to have. I enjoyed this one. It was never intrusive and the beer complemented the beer well. Tap at the Hofbräuhaus in München.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
This pours a transparent brown w/ a lingering white head. Nutty malts are the centerpiece of this one w/ a good, strong but slightly metallic bitterness in the finish. Slightly sweet and full bodied but w/ enough carbonation to keep it drinkable. This is a decent example of the style but a that metallic taste in the finish really brings it down.

On tap at Rosie’s Wine bar. Pours ruby with a long lasting white head. Aroma is of grain, toffee and honey. Medium, slightly crisp body. Toffee toasted malt, noble hops and some cloves combine on the palate for a clean, fresh taste. Long hoppy finish is supported by sweet malt. This is a world-class dunkel.

Big creamy beige lasting head. Clear deep red body with strong fast carbonation. Faint caramelly aroma. Dry-sweetish roasty earty caramelly taste. Mid-bodied. Soft, mild, slightly fizzy mouthfeel.

11.2oz bottle - pours clear amber with tan head. Nose is caramel malts and pilsner hops. Taste is sweet on the front end and turns bitter at the end. Aftertaste is roasted. Very crisp and refreshing. medium body with thin to sticky texture. Definitely a beer that can be had in mass quantity and won’t get old.
