On tap at the deli above the brewery.
Nice deep brown color with an ample tan head.
The aroma was that of lightly roasted grains.
The taste was toasty and full bodied, perfect for the style. I could taste the malts, but their sweetness was not forward at all which in my book made this an outstanding beer.
This beer was extremely drinkable, there was no alcohol present in the aroma or taste.

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.

Pours a mild brown color with a one-finger head into my glass. Certainly looks like a proper dunkel.
Aroma is sweet and full of grainy malt. Simple and yet still elegant at the same time.
Sweet, chewy grains greet the tongue. Delicious and iteffectively quenches my thirst.
Mouthfeel is full of lingering chewy malt and swwetness.
Very, very good example of this style. They know their way around German styles.

Had on tap at The Trapp Family Lodge 12/7
Served in a pilsner glass
A: This beer pours a hazy deep amber, almost chestnut brown color with a one finger of creamy off white head. Head retains nicely leaving sheets of lacing on the glass.
S: Nose is sweet caramel, chocolate notes and a hint of nuttiness.
T: Taste light and sweet caramel malts at the forefront. A surprising undercurrent of light chocolate finds its way in. A touch of grain and bread mingled with the chocolate. Finish has a touch of hop bite to it.
M: Lighter side of medium body, medium carbonation, crisp, clean but a touch of a sticky finish.
O: Goes down easy, very tasty, not too filling, mild kick, very nice represnetation of style. I could certainly have several pints of this beer.

Off tap at the brewery this beer was a root-beer brown color with one finger of off-white head. The retention was average and the lacing good. The aroma was light but on-point. I smelled a mix of chocolate malt, caramel malt, some residual sugars, nuts and dark malt. The flavors were just the same only better defined. Very nutty and robust with lots of caramel, some coffee and a touch of wood. Roasted malt lingered on the finish. Rich but not heavy, the alcohol was well-hidden and generally quite yum! The mouthfeel was good, the body medium and the carbonation a little prickly.
