COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The Dunkel style is what many refer to as the original beer of Munich and the surrounding countryside and villages (Dorf in German) of Bavaria. This everyday beer ranges in color from amber to dark brown, depending on the amount of Munich and roasted malts used. Ours is a deep reddish brown with a rich malty flavor. The sweetness of the malt is balanced by the use of another Bavarian friend...the Hellertau hop...in this specific case Hersbrucker grown near Wolnzach, Hallertau. OG 13.2 Plato (Willi Becher)

16.9floz bottle, no freshness date, costs about $9/4-pack or $2.50 for a single. consumption date of this review, 02.03.2017. Poured into a mug glass. Murky, reddish medium-brown in color. Malty sweet aroma, full on the palate for the alcohol content, and taste is woodsy. A good dark lager, and one of Urban Chestnut better offerings.

Keg at the Midtown location, 12/17/16. Hazy purple, large creamy off-white head, good retention. Aroma of raisin and toasted malt. The taste is toasted malts, raisin, mild hoppiness. Medium bodied.

On tap at Village Tavern - pretty bland and uninspired. Not a lot going on. Dark but no rich malty character or much of a nose. Meh.

Sweet toasted malt nose. Lovely deep brown color. Thick sweet taste with a light spicy end. Something unbalanced about it but overall nice brew.

16oz bottle. Pretty classic and true example of the style. Sweet, but medium bodied. Clean and easy, no frills stuff. Well made, quality ingredients. Fresh. Solid.

Pours out a very gorgeous looking deep brown color. Lovely frothy tan head. Rich and malty. Very smooth. Nicely balanced. Dry bittersweet finish. I am really loving the stuff Urban Chestnut is putting out!

nimbleprop (8077) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - JUN 25, 2016
Sampled at EatBar DC pours a murky brown with some fluffy, white head. Nose has dried fruits, some malt, yeast, caramel, bread. Flavor is chewy with grains and marzipan, soggy bread, raisin, a touch earthy. Dry finish and very drinkable.
