MaBeer1972 (2008) - Taunton, Massachusetts, USA - MAY 20, 2012
Pours out looking like a typical stout. Nice frothy tan head. Light roasty aromas. Mouthfeel is surprisingly thin and somewhat fizzy. Lots of roasty malts though. This one is what it says it is. Easy drinking and quaffable. Perfect with a meal.

Bottle shared by jslot38: pours a slightly transparent dark mahogany with a stringy-lacing off-white head. Has a lightly sweet toasty dark malty nose with some mild roast and dark chocolate. Starts with good fullness and light sweetness with some toasty dark malts and a touch of dark chocolate. Finishes drier and bittersweet.

Bottle at Sander’s place, NYC. Pours rich brown with a creamy, tan head. Some dusty cocoa in the nose with light leaves, dirt. Flavor ain’t nothing special. Light roasted malts, some plastic, dirty bitterness. Medium bodied with soft carbonation. Light sweet finish, light roasty cocoa, some leafy and dirty bitterness. Nothing special.

solidfunk (8676) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - NOV 26, 2015
Better than most dunkels but I feel like that means it isn’t a dunkel. Light roast and some lightly soured malt, dunkel styke. Pours black with decent head. Average carbonation. Light bitter finish with some hint of sourness. Tap at Lord hobo.

Scrapersnbeer (1532) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - JUN 13, 2013
Toasty coffee malt and singed hops aroma. Odd lactic undertone, wait till it warms if that’s not really apparent. Dark cola brown. The texture is kind of cola like too - nice and crisp and sometimes gritty, yet mellow as a whole. Bittersweet coffee taste. This one is about what the brewer describes, and can be abbreviated to something like dunkel with schwartz tendencies.

Tap at Ale House. Pours deep amber brown with a scant beige head. Aroma of caramel malt and smoke. Flavor follows nose. Caramel sweetness tempered by a fair amount of smoke and ash. Finishes dirty caramel.
