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.

Served in a willibecker. Pours the color of eggplant with a loose, off-white head. Nose is malty and slightly vinous with a hint of clean yeast. Taste consistent with nose; however, it all comes off a bit dull. Mouthfeel is light-medium in body (but closer to light) with an even carbonation, perhaps a bit assertive, with a kiss of acidity co-mingled. Overall, decent and drinkable but a bit lacking in terms of the fruity character I've come to associate with the style.

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.
