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)

Has a wonderful nutty aroma and flavor. Deep brown color with no head. A great dunkel, and a very easy beer to drink.

Draft at Urban Chestnut. Pours a murky deep brown with a stiff off-white head. Nose is full of bread and melanoidins, richly malty, minimal hops. On tasting, rich malt, chewy on the palate. Fresh baked bread and just a phenomenal Dunkel. Rich.

I had this at Global Brew. Pours brown with a tan head. Taste sweet, Carmel, nutty. I thought this was very good. I would definitely drink this again. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Draft at the Manchester brewpub. Dark and brooding, reddish black and downright Teutonic. The choco-roasty character takes me back to the Fatherland, deeply malty, well balanced, and easy to drink. (#6603, 5/15/2017)

UPDATED: DEC 3, 2014 The 500 ml bottle was sent to me by strykzone. Thanks Dave. It pours a dark brown with a beige long lasting head. Good lacing. Nose is roasted malts and some nuts. Medium body and a very smooth creamy mouth feel. Flavor is rich and the nuts stand out. The finish shows some grassy hops and the nuts stay prominent in the finish. Really nice beer and super easy to drink

illiniphil (148) - Nashotah, Illinois, USA - DEC 1, 2014
16 oz bottle. Pours a dark ruby brown with a thin tan head that hung around. Taste is dark malts with just a faint sweetness. While good, the taste is just a little thin. Still good! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Another great beer in the great state of Missouri. Pours a muddy reddish brown. Aromas are freshly harvested grains with some musk, sweet grape and raisin too. Flavors are fresh grains, grapes, tough to pin down some of these flavors and aromas. Complex and delicious.
