Darkest of brown, almost black with thin tan head. Light roasted malt/coffee, Munich-type malts, and a little licorice. Flavor has smooth lager Munich malt sweetness followed by velvety cocoa/coffee roast finish. Enjoyable. ElGaucho (2401) - Minnetonka, Minnesota, USA - AUG 25, 2003
Sampled at Great Taste of the Midwest. Aroma off..stale (hemp?) Deep red with off-white head, thin. Roasted malt flavor. Decent. StewardofGondor (1934) - Washington Heights - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 17, 2005
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

On-tap @ the Brewpub.
Deep mahogany color and a nice tan head of foam that leaves sheets of lacing behind it. Aroma of dark chocolate and toasted munich-style malts.
Light roasted malt flavor for bitterness and some rich chocolate in the flavor. Nutty aspect reminded me a lot of a rich nut brown ale. Medium-to-full bodied and quite smooth.
Says on the menu that this won a Silver medal at the Great American Beer Festival. I can see why.
