Had the pleasure of trying one of these at the brewery last weekend and decided to pick up a growler. Poured into a Stiegl stange...
A: Pours a crystal clear, old-penny copper. A nice, two-finger, light beige head forms, supported by a steady stream of tiny bubbles. Great retention and lacing top things off pretty well in the appearance department.
S: Bready, toasty malts... smells very clean. Definitely nothing complex or in your face - just straight and simple dunkel goodness.
T: Dark, sweet breadiness, with some hints of toast / bread crust evolves into a somewhat nutty flavor toward the finish. Light, earthy hops provide just a touch of bitter balance. Very smooth.
M: Medium-bodied, which is a bit more than I was expecting, and high carbonation... a little prickly, but oh-so-smooth and quaffable.
O: The drinkability on this beer is through the roof! Its very clean, smooth, tasty and enjoyable. What else could you ask for?! Hopefully I’ll be able pick up more of this before they’re on to the next seasonal. Great brew, OMB!

No head, a bit of lacing
Deep amber you can just barely see through
Not as good as the Warsteiner, but grows on you. Maltiness that rolls gently down the throat. Very little carbonation.
A back-up utility infielder of beers.
The first one we've struggled to get 250 characters on.
Serving type: on-tap

3.83/5 rDev -5.4%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75
Appearance: Pours a clear copper color with a somewhat modest head; still, it leaves some splashy lacing around the pint glass
Smell: Toasted brown bread with earthy and slightly herbal hop tones
Taste: Toasted brown bread and earthy hop flavors on the front end; a bit of herbal lager twang builds in the middle and controls the finish
Mouthfeel: Medium body with moderate carbonation
Overall: Not many craft brewers try the German styles and the dunkel, in particular; this is a pretty good example of the style

Tap at the brewery
Pours a clear brown with a white lacing.
Aroma of coppery bready malt with some caramel.
Tastes of light bready malts with a light hop bitterness.
Medium body with a tingly carbonation on the roof of the mouth.
A really good dunkel, great flavor and highly sessionable.
Serving type: on-tap
