Nose is chocolate and bready notes, pours a dark crystal clear. Tastes much smoother and lighter than you would expect. Very clean and crisp. Great dark lager. finish is very pleasant and a great gateway beer to those wanting to experiment with darker beers that don't have to be chewed.

This is a superb Munich dunkel. The color is light mahogany color with light carbonation. The aroma is lightly sweet with hints of dark caramel.. Medium full mouthfeel. The flavor is richly caramel and a light nuttiness. Very well balanced and sessionable. Possibly my favorite of the style.

Canned offering, pours a tea colored with 2 fingers of sany colored head. Above average head retention & lacing

S: Pears & appples, toastyness

T: A little brown bread/toastyness, a little appleskin, some leafy hops as well up front. Brown bread & appleskins as this warms, toastyness as well. Finishes fruitty, toasty & dry

MF: Medium bodied, slight carbonation

Pretty drinkable & true to the style for the most part, a bit drier & toastier than any I had in Bavaria

1 pt 6 fl oz bottle served in a snifter, reviewed live:

A- Pours a deep and fairly dark, transparent amber color, topped with a surprisingly creamy, off-white, 1.5 finger head. Retention is average, though it pretty appealing.

S - Caramel, toasted and pale malts, bread, and light spice. It's mild, and a little boring.

T - Some fruit esters that weren't evident in the nose come through. It's a little nutty, and the toasted malt foundation, cream and sweet candy are counted by light hopping. It's simple, but very well balanced. I like it quite a bit.

M - Medium bodied, smooth, and oddly, a bit creamy. It works pretty well with the flavors, though.

D - My first brew from Grimm Brother, and I'm impressed. It's nothing special, but I'll try more, especially on tap.

Poured from 22oz Bottle into a Bruery tulip

A: Pours a deep copper with very minimal head that disappears almost immediately.

S: Sweet malt and caramel dominant with toasted and nutty notes in the back. Some nice hops are evident as well

T: Very sweet and smooth. Caramel, sweet malt, nuttiness...everything that was present on the nose comes through nicely here

M: Lower carbonation makes this one an easy drinker. Almost silky smooth

O: If this came in 6-packs it would be in my fridge constantly. Here is to hoping that every Grimm Bros beer is as good as my firs couple!
