Draft offering at the Pittsburgh location served in a large dimpled mug. The brew appears a amber color with a rich off-white cap that fades slowly leaving patchy lace-work on the glass.

The aroma contains plenty of bready malt and some sweetness with fruity and floral hops/alcohol. As more whiffs are taken, some of that bready maltiness transforms to more toffee and molasses character.

The taste includes plenty of molasses-like dark malt flavoring with a fresh bready grain appeal that blends to something more like toffee and caramel with more sips. There is an herbal hop aspect before blending to a soft fruity alcohol aapect towards the finish.

This is a medium bodied brew with a modest amount of carbonation. Overall an exceptionally drinking brew and probably the best example of a dunkel I have had in recent memory. I wouldnt mind having this again sometime soon.

Pours a dark brown color. Lots of off white head and plenty of lace. Aroma of roasted malt and a bit of chocolate. In the taste, roasted malt and some cocoa. Light herbal hopping, even bitterness with a slightly roasted finish. Medium bodied, but full and smooth. Overall this is a great brew.
