On tap at The House Pub in St. Charles, IL.

Served in a pint glass, it was a dark brownish black, or blackish brown, depending on the light. Towards the end of the glass some light bled through, and the beer was a transparent dark brown. Lasting head of khaki tan foam that left behind plenty of spotty lacing in the glass.

Aroma was grainy and had a light spice, multigrain bread impression, not especially sweet.

Flavor was similar, some dry husky grain and nuttiness, alongside a full malty body, and some woody notes. Clean and dry finish with a lingering aftertaste of complex malts. Not overly sweet like many euro Dunkels. A good candidate to bottle as a fall seasonal (hint hint), it's definitely sessionable.

poured 12oz bottle into pint glass.

A - Mahogany with a 1 finger khaki head. Slow fading into a collar with some rings of lacing on my glass.

S - Roasted malts and bready, pumpernickel and dark rye. Some grains and earthy notes with a few spice aromas.

T - Very bready, as in a slice of pumpernickel on top of a slice of dark rye. The roasted malts keep it from becoming sweet, but there is grain flavor. Some earthy and wooded flavors that end with a bit of spice.

M - Smooth and creamy with a medium feel. Carbonation is soft.

O - A delicious Dunkel that you could drink anytime of the year.

Served in a shaker pint glass at Beer Bistro North.

A Munich dunkel brewed with rye? Hit me! It pours a dark russet-garnet topped by a finger of tan froth. The nose comprises toasted rye bread, very light cocoa, light roasted malts, and a touch of vanilla bean. The taste brings in more of the same, with some more rye and some toasted sourdough added to the proceedings. The body is a light medium, with a light moderate carbonation and a drying finish. Overall, a nice little dunkel, nothing mind-expanding, but something I'd be glad to have again.

Pours a clear, dark brown color. One inch head of an off-tan color. Great retention and great lacing. Smells of sweet malt, slight roasted malt, slight oatmeal, hint of yeast, and a hint of alcohol. Mouth feel is sharp and clean, with an average carbonation level. Tastes of roasted malt, sweet malt, hint of yeast, slight alcohol, hint of oatmeal, and slight rye. Overall, this beer is too roasted, sweet, and too much alcohol, to be a good Munich Dunkel Lager, but it is still a very tasty brew.

Appearance: held to light reveals some dark ruby/copper red notes. Inch of rich light brown head on the pour. Light random lacing left behind after each sip.

Smell: spicy, peppery rye leads off on the nose. Roasty malt notes brings aromas of coffee, toast, and rich molasses and toffee. German and dark wheat malt warm the body and knock this hone as a beer from Metropolitan. Really wonderfully aromatic and an easy beer to sick your nose in.

Taste: warm dark wheat greets the drinker immediately. Rye opens up a bit on the body but stay wonderfully in balance with complimentary aspects of this beer. Crisp clean body isn't overbearing on the drinker and keeps you reaching for more. Toffee and some rye tingle linger on the palate.

Feel: per usual with Metropolitan beers, mouth feel and drinkability are perfect. Some huge flavor profiles find a way to not fatigue the palate but keep it begging for more. Carbonation is minimal allowing the rich malt notes to shine.

Overall: not even one of my top favorite Metropolitan seasonal offerings and it's still a marvelous beer. Always will admire the vision and structure on this brewery. They decided to master lagering back in the day now we all reap the beautiful rewards.
