3.74/5  rDev -4.1%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

Serving: On tap, 4oz sampler
Served: 6 August 2014

Appearance: Pours a standard brown color, clear, with a bit of an off-white head. The head doesn't stick around much, but this could be due to the sampler size. Looks excellent for the style.

Smell: Not really much in the nose- some caramel/toffee notes, a bit of nuttiness, but overall nothing that really pops (even a generic 'beer' smell isn't all that evident here).

Taste: No real assertive flavors here- a slight overall nuttiness, like one would get from dark whole-wheat bread along with a touch of caramel sweetness.

Mouthfeel: Excellent carbonation and body for the style.

Overall: This beer just feels a bit lacking to me. Definitely not the best example of a Munich Dunkel that I've had, and one that could benefit from slightly more assertive flavors. Still, not a bad beer, but one that drinks more like an American Amber Lager than a Munich Dunkel.

Served at the tap room.
This is probably the boldest dunkel I've had. Rich, with a crunchy crackling malt bill. Nicely balanced malt flavors and no particular hop presence.
Attractive with brown with amber highlights and clear. Nice off-white head.
Full body for style and a nice lager smoothness.
