Deep, translucent cherry black in color with a lovely, dark creamy tan head. Burnt chocolate manifests in the aroma, interspersed with Coca Cola. Rich, nutty chocolate take a robust step forward in the flavor profile. Caramel currents and milk chocolate brownies contribute as well. Palate feel is appreciated - creamy, medium-bodied and easy going as a dunkel should be. Good to see a brewpub doing an above par rendition of the style. kms399 (267) - plymouth, Minnesota, USA - AUG 21, 2005

Sample at the brewpub. Near black, wisp of head which lasted an hour. Grapy-chocolaty nose, smooth cocoa body, fairly full; chewy, late robustness, a great "dark" session beer. ElGaucho (2401) - Minnetonka, Minnesota, USA - AUG 25, 2003
