Notes/Commercial Description:
Our darkest year round beer however, looks can be deceiving. Dunkel features notes of chocolate with a full malt back bone. Contrary to its dark color, this beer finishes crisp and clean with a round hop flavor.

On tap at Trapp Family Lodge Brewery in Stowe, VT.

I was told by the bartender that I had been pronouncing the style wrong all along- it's pronounced d-oon-kel. Oops!

Pours a light to medium strength brown, clear, with no haze, with a one inch head, and a little bit of lacing.

Smells like toasted bread, roasted bread, roasted malt, caramel, and toffee.

Absolutely delicious malt flavor, most likely because it is decoction mashed. Light on the tongue, but rich in flavor. Caramel, toffee, a little bit of chocolate, roasted malt, and toasty bread. So good.

This one has a lighter body, with a crisp, bready mouthfeel, and a moderate amount of carbonation.

Another great one from Trapp, it's good to get authentic German styles fresh in the US.

On tap at the Trapp brewery.

Served in a becher, caramel brown color, cloudy, with a full two fingers of off-white head; moderate retention and lacing. Aroma of wort and lager yeast. In the taste, bready malts, brown sugar and a dab of honey, mild roast, notes of yeast and distant earthy hops. Body was on the lighter side of medium, mouthfeel seemed a bit thin for the style, but it was an easy drinker overall.
