Pours a dark amber color with medium frothy tan head. Reeks of malt in fact that’s all I’m picking up. This beer is one-dimensional with a strong nutty malt flavor that doesn’t let anything else shine through. It seems very bitter and acidic. I had one of these a month ago and never rated it because I thought I had batch, apparently not. Finish is a bit thin as well. larrysstein (3) - Whitefish Bay, Wisconsin, USA - FEB 28, 2006 does not count
Malty aroma and taste, large tan head that reduces fast. smooth medium body with very slight bitter flavor. Enjoyable. TheBeerLover (1027) - DC Metro Area, USA - JAN 25, 2006
Lakefront East Side Dark is a delicious Munich Dunkles. This beer pours to a deep brown color with a tan head, and a moderate amount of carbonation. The nose is quite malty, with a touch of roasty aromas. The palate is firm with some nice sweet malt flavors paired with some good roasty flavors as well. This beer finishes with more roast, and enough hop presence to balance. This beer is very smooth, clean and drinkable, as a great lager should be.
An excellent domestic version of dunkles from a great brewery. I would match this with a Milwaukee German Fest favortie, "German pizza". Pizza with Swiss cheese, saurkraut, grilled onions, and slices of bratwurst. Have a few slices, and a few from the Dark Side 1FastSTi (3358) - Glendale, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 21, 2006
Drank 2 of these Jan. 19th at my company’s quarterly meeting. I’ve had it many times in the past but apparently didn’t take the time to rate it. Anyway, it has a nice deep toasted malt flavor with chocolate and light hops. The aroma is much of the same. The palate is medium bodied, smooth, and rich. Quite a decent dunkel.

Bottle. Dark brown color with a large frothy light brown head that lasted and produced good lacing. Good toasted sweet malt aroma. Medium body. Moderate well blanced sweet toasted flavor with a moderate citrus finish. Good brew.

Pours a dark brown with reddish high-lights and a tan head that diminishes quickly. Aroma of toasted malts with decent carbonation and a toasty sweet flavor.
Medium bodied beer that’s definitely worth the purchase. DarkElf (3067) - La Jolla, California, USA - NOV 15, 2005
(12 oz bottle: Obtained in trade with footbalm, thanks Eric!) This is one of the toastiest beers I can remember tasting. It’s sweet, malty, chocolaty and very nutty, with only a slight bitterness in the finish. The nose is equally as toasty as the flavor. Medium-full bodied, smooth and soft on the palate. Medium-dark brown and fully clear, but the light tan head is small and short lived, quickly fading to a miniscule ring. I’m glad this bottle was this tasty because my previous bottle of this was less impressive. Bockyhorsey (2638) - Mesa, Arizona, USA - OCT 29, 2005
A good coffee rast aroma. Brown body with off white head and decent carbination. Flavor is a coffee mouthful till the end a zesty fruit appears out of nowhere that has some sweet feel to it. Leaves a fruity aftertaste along with some coffee. heemer77 (5361) - Urbandale, Iowa, USA - OCT 24, 2005
Dark brown and ruby body with lots of tiny carbonation bubbles. The head is light off white. The aroma is very light chocolate and some raisins. The taste has some light choclate milk. Wow, never tasted that in a dunkel before. There is also some tart cherries in here that may be lactose. The mouthfeel is rich and creamy. One of Lakefront’s more interesting offerings. drpimento (3814) - La Crosse, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 5, 2005
Poured with a big head, but comepletely disappeared. Dark brownish red color, nice complex nose: coffe, dark sweet fruits, toasted grain, cola. Similar with taste and with a little tang at the end that’s not entirely pleasant. I got this one in a beer of the month. I’ve had this before and it’s tasted much better. They have it at the Bodega downtown La Crosse.
