This is a decent dunkel, a bit thin and bland but reasonably firm and not overly sweet like some.

Very dark brown, almost black, it has a thin, weak foam that quickly thins to a foamy ring.

The aroma is burnt sugar, slightly sour plums, and brown bread, and beans.

The taste is heavily toasted bread, fermenting plums, hints of earth, chocolate, and burnt sugar. It starts off a little sweet up front with faint sourness and burnt bitterness. However, the finish is more interesting, lightly spicey-peppery with a quality of root beer mixed with burnt toast. It's mostyl rather bland but it does have a little complexity and is light and rather drinkable. It seems a pretty middle-of the road dunkel for me.

From a 12 oz bottle this poured a chocolate brown with a small and quick fading light tan head and minimal lacing. Mouthfeel is medium and fairly smooth. Nose roasted malts, and some roasted nuts. Flavor is of burnt malts and some chocolate. Sweet finish.

pint bottle poured into a flute. pours a a deep chocolate brown with a half finger of light tan head. amber highlights with moderate lacings.

aroma is lightly roasted, with a brown sugar like sweet character that is sided by a chocolate aroma.

taste is more of the same with a bit more chocolate and some caramel mixed in. could use a bit more CO2 to liven up the body a bit.

mouthfeel is medium bodied with a somewhat thin texture and a smooth finish of residual malt.

drinkability is good. this is an easy going dunkel with good concentration and solid flavors, just a bit thin on the texture and body.

Poured a dark brown with a little head that dropped quickly to a ring around the edge which left a little lacing. It had a hazy appearance which surprised me a little, I was expecting a dark beer but with clarity which this didn't have. It has a sweet malty smell with no hop aroma. The taste is sweet up front with some toffee notes carrying it through, finishing clean. This one is all malt, but it is good. The mouthfeel is velvety smooth and a pleasure going down. I enjoyed this beer, a little too sweet and maybe too one-dimensional to really stand out, but interesting enough to be enjoyable.

My second dark lager of the evening....a murky brown lager that pour with ample carbonation, but somehow the head falls flat....disappointing. The nose is interesting...sort of a caramel and chocolate affair. Tastes almost like a weizenbock to me, with a soft mouthfeel and sweet caramel malt and toffee flavors. The bitterness is restrained, but a tart, mineral-laden finish is sort of interesting. This lager comes across fairly hearty for its four percent alcohol and it's fruity character (buried underneath the caramel malt) almost has thinking of British Mild. Overall, this is a lager that drinks more like an ale; it gets better as it warms up, fruitier and more tart. I would like to experience this beer on tap.

12 oz. brown longneck with no freshness date. It pours a lightly-hazed mahogany with medium carbonation, topped with an inch of khaki head that leaves light lacing. The aroma consists of caramel, lightly roasted, and dark malts backed by an almost cloying sweetness, to which the flavor adds lightly citric hops that contribute a mild bitterness on top of a light, tingly body that imparts a medium finish. Overall not too bad, but it's lacking a certain something - glad to try it but I probably wouldn't revisit.

Pours a rather quiet deep mahogany with scant tan head and similarly whimpy lace. The aroma captures a fairly typical molasses/brown sugar malt quality, fairly strong with a touch of grassy highlight. The first taste brings a mildly carbonated brown sugar with a bit of bitterness, almost a bit flat as suggested by the lack of foam and lace. There is some grapefruit hidden in here as well. As you go along I think it grows on you and shows some complexity. I'd like to see more wholesome carbonation but the flavor appeals to me, quite sweet. This is easy enough to drink but I don't think it would stand up to drinking more than a couple, needs a little more body or something, but not bad.

look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Pours with a minimal tan head. A beautiful dark ruby to brown color. Some spot lacing.

Sweet aroma with some hints of caramel.A very faint bit of smoke too with some toffee/choco at end.

Sweetness dominates the taste but not cloying. Malt all the way, with little going on in the hops arena. Some choco hints and a very faint metal flavor at the finish.

Mouthfeel is a bit on thin side, but not thin. Some good, subtle carbonation.

Not a bad dunkel, but no real "excitement". However, a good session beer given the ABV and middle of the road character.

A - A light brown with a lot of ruddy red and a small tan head lining the top of the glass.

S - A slightly sweet and smoky malty aroma with a clean aroma, a hint of elderberries as well.

T - A slightly smoky malty flavor and a bit of sugar plums. Aftertaste is of a slight bit of hops and a lingering malty finish.

M - Slick, smooth, oily, a little refreshing.

D - A pretty smooth beer overall. It is a pleasant lager, but it isn't worth hunting down.

Pours a deep brown with almost zero tan headskie. Sweet chewy nose well balanced. Goes down very smooth and is quite easy to drink. If it were just a touch less sweet I could drink it all night. A very decent dark lager. Quite surprised to run into this one, but I'm glad I picked it up.
