Availability: Year-round

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.

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.

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.

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.
