Really nice for the style. A little lighter color than I would have expected (more of a brown) but nevertheless it’s a great tasting Dunkel

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at Stateside Craft, pours a clear copper / amber with a small off-white head. Aroma is fruity upfront, with toasted nuts in back - substantial sweetness. Flavour is similar, though thankfully not as fruity - bringing out dark fruits, toffee and toasted nuts to dry things out a bit. A little sweeter than typical dunkels, but it works. Decent one.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Draught at Garricks, Victoria, Canada. Translucent brown, off-white head. Nose of caramel, choc malt, floral hops. Flavour is caramel, choc malt, slight roast... strange, I love their kolsch and think their alt is the bomb... but the caramel just doesn’t work here, takes away from the style rather than adding to it.

On tap at St Augustine’s in Vancouver. A dark beer with a bit of whitish head. Not quite sure what to say about this one. Evident caramel with a bit of hop. A drinkable dark lager.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Draught at St. Augustine’s, Vancouver
Dark amber to mahogany color, bright and clean, with small creamy head. The aroma tends to be sweeter and more caramelly than German Dunkels. The mouthfeel is dry and rather weak; it has some caramel flavor, but it terribly lacks of depth; low bitterness somehow. It has some breadish impression.
