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.

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.

Alewife and I visited the brewpub late on the afternoon of 02SEP12. Grabbed a couple of half-litres and laxed on the back lawn as the sun set on a gorgeous day...

This dunkel was not as dark as I thought it should be. More of a clear, semi-dark copper than brown or black. Head was thin, light beige, fine and creamy. Good lacing was left behind as the foam rapidly ebbed. Aroma was of some mild roast and a touch of floral action. Had a medium body, and it was solidly smooth on the tongue.

There was a bit of caramel and toffee present here, with a bit of roastiness. A bit bitter, it had only subtle choco and coffee characteristics. The finish was again floral, with some lingering bitterness. Seemed less a dunkel than perhaps a Dortmunder. Anyhow, it hit the spot. Prosit!!

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.
