3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
From a bottle poured at the correct serving temperature.
Light malt aroma. Little bread/toffee aroma as expected on more flavorful examples of the style. Medium to low caramel aroma. No hop aroma, which is to style.
Medium tan head that pours thick and disappears quickly.
Very Clean reddish brown color, filtered obviously.
Bubble were large, making is look not creamy.
Moderately sweet with caramel notes as it warms in the mouth.
Hop bitterness is present and balancing, but not lingering.
Not much of the complex melanoidin (toffee, bread crust) flavors expected in a Dunkel. Definitely no chocolate, but that is optional.
Medium-light boy. Medium-high carbonation lifts the weight. Crispy finish, very easy drinking.
A descent beer. Not quite what I expect of a flavorful dunkel, but serves well on an example that you’d want to drink several bottles. I am sure it is a whole different story at the source, on tap.
Bottle picked up at Jungle Jims from backlog. Pours a dark reddish brown color with a medium sized beige head. The aroma and flavor have toasted wheat malts, dusty chocolate, grains, hints of fruit, metallic, doesn’t finish well. Oleg85 (194) - Yaroslavl, RUSSIA - FEB 3, 2016
UPDATED: MAR 1, 2016 It pours deep ruby-brown color with 2 fingers thick beige head. The smell has caramel, strawberry jam and dried banana. The taste adds roasted rye bread and lemon. Still it’s light-bodied and low-carbonated. sharkydodson (1620) - St. Petersburg, RUSSIA - NOV 30, 2015

Rated based on notes taken 14 July 2012 -- Man there is something about drinking fresh(-ish) German ales from German Bierhaus’s that just make them taste better!

500ml bottle. ABV is 5.1%?! Pours reddish brown with a small beige head. Aroma is chocolate, roasted malt, caramel. Taste is chocolate, roasted malt and a bit of banana, and slightly sour. Expected more from this. aumentm (452) - North Carolina, USA - MAY 1, 2015

Tasty beer, lighter than you would think for a funnel beer, smells malty but the flavour is more like the regular spaten, just a bit malty aftertaste , good beer to have with dinner I would say tykechandler (343) - Kentucky, USA - FEB 1, 2015
Это пиво вкусное. я, конечно, рекомен& его всем, что любит хорошую Craft пива! Motobashi (107) - Windsor, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 31, 2014
Bottle. Poured a deep red with very little head. Soft carbonation. Minimal aroma of caramel. Very light lacing. Light body. Slightly bitter finish. Short lived. Semi sweet flavour with something I can’t quite place. Ok, but nothing overly special.
