3.74/5 rDev -4.1%
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.

4.13/5 rDev +5.9%
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.
