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.

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.

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.

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!!

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.

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.
