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.

As previous reviewer said "Pours a mild brown color with a one-finger head into my glass". I agree completely. Very drinkable.

My brother and I went up to see and taste what Trapp was all about. Had the beer lady call down to the brewery to see if we could talk to Alan the brew master. He did take time from his very busy day to give us a quick tour, The brewery is very up to
date but very small. They are selling out faster than they can brew and will no doubt out grow their current space. Hopefully they will start selling take out bombers in the near future.

The Dunkel was very drinkable and consistent to the end, no after taste.
Could of had a couple more pints and been a very happy camper.

As far as the location of the brewery, it's as close to God as you can get. We had a prefect day on our visit and could see 50 miles for 360 degrees. This would be a must stop if you are anywhere near Stowe Vermont. Plus Ben & Jerry's is close by. (952 characters)

From the 12 fl. oz. bottle. Sampled on June 21, 2015.

The pour is a highly attractive reddish-brown building up to a huge mocha head that lasts for some time.

The aroma has a sweet and burnt malt mix, a little light chocolate, wooden crate, and vague earthy hops.

Light body.

The taste is sweet and smooth but the bitterness emerges more as it goes along. (360 characters)

Tap: Poured a clear dark brown color lager with a small dark foamy head with average retention. Aroma of chocolate malt notes is very nice with light dry notes also noticeable. Taste is also dominated by chocolate malt notes with light dry roasted malt notes and light caramel. Body is somewhat thing with average carbonation. Nice level of complexity with great drinkability factor. (383 characters)

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. (751 characters)
