First had: on tap at Chuckanut Brewery & Kitchen

Not a bad dunkel. Poured clear reddish-brown with a light whitish head. Sweet maltiness in the nose. Tasted malty and sweet, a bit nutty. Light-medium mouthfeel with a bit of a stale aftertaste. Pretty easily drinkable.

Dark brown withsome red highlights and no head or lacing by the time it got to me. Just a sweet aroma, nothing in particular. Molasses with a light bitter balance and roasted, bready flavors mixed in. Even mouthfeel.

Good balance in flavors, an easy drinking darker beer for anyone to get behind. Offer it to someone at the table interested in something a little darker.

Served in straight pint glass. Poured a translucent dark mahogany color with over a half-inch of tan head that had low retention and lacing.

The aroma was mostly soft, smooth grains (with perhaps just a hint of roast in the background), and some very light, gentle hops. The flavors also were mostly grainy, with a light roast and subtle chocolate notes as well. There were just enough hops for a bit of contrast.

The body was just a bit fuller than medium, nicely smooth, and had a very lightly sticky finish. Drinkability was good, you could easily drink several of these at a session, or have one every day without getting bored by it. Overall, another nice brew from this brewery. Worth trying when you see it.

Found the Dunkel to be the traditional very dark amber in color. The smell was a lovely Dunkel fragrance I sorely needed at the time (was doing a bit of a brewery tour) that did not disappoint when taking the first sip. Had a sort of semi sweet taste to it which is the style. It finished with a good clean, smooth, and roasted feel/taste to it that I quite enjoyed really.
