Zymurgeist2 (2149) - Redwood City, California, USA - DEC 9, 2009
In a pint glass at the Brewery. Pours a deep reddish-brown. The head is beige and did not last long - leaving a faint rim around the edges. Nose of rich malt but light for a dunkel. Crisp, clean nutty malts on the palate. Medium mouthfeel with pronounced carbination on the finish. A light version of this style.

Nik925 (791) - USA - DEC 14, 2008
Strong fruited malt with a nice tinge of burnt. Better than other attempts of this style I have tried and well made. Good carbonation an mouth feel. Overall, nothing crazy good, but great for the style.

SamGamgee (2452) - down the whirlpool, California, USA - AUG 17, 2008
On tap at the brewery. Super dark red color with a creamy beige head. Light toffee, and caramel aroma. The flavor has some brown sugar, caramel, and nuttiness, with light bitterness. Light bodied with hight carbonation. At first, I had a sampler size glass of this and really liked it, but a whole mug on my second visit wasn’t nearly as good. It tasted a little weaker and not quite as fresh. Still decent and quit drinkable, but missing the richness of flavor that would demand a second mug.

bhensonb (14881) - Woodland, California, USA - MAR 2, 2008
Draft at the brewpub. Strongish caramel aroma. Hazy dark brown color with a flat beige head. Near medium body with sharpish carbonation. Flavor is darkish caramel with a little noble hop. Could be a hint of chocolate. Fits the style. The finish does develop a small amount of bitter that accumulates.

DTM (798) - Winters, California, USA - DEC 21, 2007
UPDATED: JAN 25, 2008 On tap, part of the 10 beer sampler. Poured a dark amber color. Very close in flavor to the Doppel Bock, but with less body and flavor Update: Had it a second time and had more flavor. Upped it 0.2 points.

timfoolery (1126) - California, USA - DEC 21, 2007
On tap at Sudwerk. Similar to the Doppel-bock, this one is a bit more watered down version. Flavors are similar (chocolate and caramel), but are muted or distant.

DYCSoccer17 (3683) - Woodland, California, USA - OCT 19, 2006
On tap at the brewpub last week. .3L sample. Similar roasted, cereal-like malt bill to that of the Ur-Pils that I just finished. Some spices and metallic hops notes are also present in the nose. Doesn’t really smell like a dunkel. Mildly hazy dark amber body with a smooth, small, off-white head and ok lacing. Toasted, roasted, malts to start. Becomes lightly floral and a bit hoppy with some lingering bitterness later on. Tastes a lot like the Ur-Pils I just had. Kind of funkel for a dunkel.
