On tap in Philly. Nice malty, bready aroma. Flavor of sweet malts and fruits. Very smooth and drinkable. Zeswaft (1773) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JUN 23, 2007
ah, the "doonkel" as the waiter pronounced it. now that i think about it i don’t remember much. it didn’t have much flavor. the traditional burnt toast and nutty flavor followed by a rush of water. illinismitty (2271) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - MAY 15, 2007
UPDATED: MAY 21, 2007 Draft at Philly location. Pours a deep copper with a fluffy off white head. Sugary dark fruit aroma. Initial flavor of toasted malt and bread grains with moderate sweetness. Finish is mildly bitter. Not bad. whaleman (2178) - North Wales, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 22, 2007
Clear, shiny copper body with a pillowy off-white head. Nice malty aroma with grape and apple notes plus sweet toffee and toasted bread crusts. Pleasant yeast profile with subtle floral hops. Medium sweet, malty flavor is lightly grainy with toast and fruit characters. Emergent, grainy bitterness. Smooth and palatable. A good American dunkel and another solid session beer from Triumph.

Oh tap at Philly location. Pours a nice deep amber, light brown with light carbonation, yet a frothy sticky lasting beige head, and some good lace. Aroma is toasty and biscuity with tons of medium toast munich, sweet bready doughy malts, and hints of chocolate. Warm toasty bready flavor with more munich, with almost a sharp sweetness, cut by the acrid chocolate and dark malt hints. Good full body and mouthfeel for the style. Very smooth and easy to drink. One of the best Dunkels I have had. Similar to Ayinger.

27.08.07 Growler from Princeton, also sampled about a year ago in New Hope, also sampled at GABF05. Paler cola brown color, lightly hazed, with crazy lasting cream colored head. First whiff is of old and soggy grain, like a leaky shed that’s filled with seed and leaf litter, and that’s a comforting smell to me so I’m digging it. The first time I sampled this (at New Hope) it was a week or so before its release and the beer was a bit harsh with the last bite of its dark malts, it was also a bit phenolic, but that has waned with ample time in the tank, I guess. Now the beer smells and tastes of young grains, fresh but wet malts, a slight herbs de provence note, and background banana and nutmeg(?). Long wet finish, neither sweet nor bitter nor astringent. Tobacco. My major gripe is that the stuff is too carbonated for my tastes with seemingly large bubbles that can be a bit harsh. This is less an issue with this growler. jdjuice (500) - Kumamoto, JAPAN - APR 9, 2006
Aroma of yeast. First taste is kind of unremarkable maltiness with a hint of sourness. Beer only has redeeming qualities with the finish, where some nice roastiness comes out. All in all, not as big or flavorful as I’d like a dunkel. Eh.
