Pours a clear dark amber, brown with a small tan head that lingers.

Smells of sweet malt with just a touch of lager yeast and floral hop. The caramel malt flavor really dominates.

Taste is slightly roasty, caramel up front that goes into a bready, sweet middle before ending on a smooth and pleasant caramel malt flavor. A hint of diacetyl lingers. Really smooth.

Lighter to medium body with medium to low carbonation. No alcohol notes.

This is a nice Dunkel that is sweet with notes of caramel. I will get this one again.

From a 650 ml bottle into a pokal.

A-A normal pour produces a slim finger of tan head. Retention is less than a minute and there is no lacing. The beer is deep amber with brassy highlights and a few bubbles to be seen in there.

S-I smell some cocoa at first, along with sweet plum and other dark fruits, some grain, a bit of nutty flavor, and a lot of malty grain. Hops are pretty much absent, but there is just a hint of zesty, fruity citrus.

T-The taste is pretty similar to the smell. Lots of sweetness, plum fruit, nuttiness, malted grain, and a bit of milky cocoa powder. I detect a faint suggestion of hops on the back of my palate, but they come through as just a whiff of bitterness.

M-The feel is a bit wet and heavy. Carbonation is mild to average in volume and slightly chunky.

O-Strangely enough, it is spring and I am drinking malty dunkels. Weird. Anyway, this is a pretty good example of the style. It possesses decent complexity and nice malt flavors. There is a healthy dose of sweetness, but the beer never becomes cloying or syrupy, like I think some dunkels can be. The mouthfeel is a bit underwhelming, but not terrible. All in all, a nice beer.

22oz bottle into a Duvel tulip. Thanks to my brother-in-law for bringing me this back in September of 2012; it's been forgotten in my cellar since.

A: Clear garnet body under two fingers of chunky tan head that settles into a ring. Light lace. Quite attractive.

S: Sweet maltiness dominates, with caramel, walnut, prune, and grape standing out. Nice mix of grain, fruit, and sugar. Enjoyable.

T: Fruity up front, with lots of grape, cherry, and plum leading in to caramel and butterscotch sweetness midway through. A bit drier toward the finish, with some minerality and herbal hops lending at least a hint of balance to a generally quite sweet beer. Very good, but not quite as well integrated as the aroma.

M: Smooth, creamy, well-carbonated medium body. Silky. Excellent.

O: This was an extremely tasty beer, period, and an especially impressive one for being close to two years old and a style not typically thought suitable for aging. Looking forward to trying more from this brewery; good American lagers are always a treat.

Cheers!

Re-reviewing since i am now more familiar with the style and the beer, having had it a million times since intiailly reviewing.

Pours caramel brown with a khaki head. Aroma is bready, hazelnuts, a touch of some chocolate. Great. Flavor crisp and clean with some bread, nuts, and a touch of earthiness. Just the faintest of hops hiding out in the backhand. A crisp, medium bodied mouthfeel with some activity. Overall, think this beer is great. One of my favorites from Grimm. Wish these guys would start offering their stuff in 6 packs (heck, I'd settle for 4 packs!).

Color is clear red-brown with a short-lived foam in the snifter. The carbonation appears to start out fine, but leave the glass standing a few minutes and it's gone. Not much aroma except for a slight beery breath.

Some nicely-roasted dark malt with a pleasant tang to it. Some slight sweetness along with a tea-like bitter edge. Faint nutty flavor and a hint of pomegranate.. There is really not much to this, and it's quite handicapped by the carbonation anemia. Now take the Germans, they know how to put a good spritz on a bier, ja! From the 22 oz bottle purchased at Wilbur's Total Beverage in Fort Collins.

this one falls into the crowd a little bit, especially this time of year, but a good brew nevertheless. murky medium amber color like maple syrup, tons of bubbles but they don't accumulate into any real head to speak of. mild but decidedly autumnal nose, a touch of honey sweet, and a touch of fall spice, almost in the pumpkin beer family really. grain forward to the max, no hops at all, but plenty of toasty harvest essences to contemplate as I let it warm up, where it really expands. floral yeast that I wouldn't immediately place as a lager, but it works as a whole package. needs more bubbles, and is a little filling, but it should be in this cold. I am curious to try the farmers daughter and see how it differs.

Crystal clear, dark copper body; lots of carbonation and a decent head. Deep, caramel and roasted grain aroma; burnt brown sugar. Warm, toasted grain flavor; light toffee; trace of hop bitterness deep into the finish. Medium bodied; crisp, clean, and dry finish.

A nice, easy drinking dark lager. Subtle depth and complexity emerges that adds to the overall appeal.

Well, love the artwork on these bottles. Let's see what the insides have for me...

Pours a dark chestnut brown, but not bordering on dark brown or black. You can tell it's brown. Nice off white head, some soapiness but nice looking beer.

Sweet aroma of caramel and malt. Perhaps hints of dark cherry and baked, non-glazed donut. Hints of spice and hops

A blend of roasted malt and sweet caramel on the flavor. Take that donut and dunk it into a brown tea. Has some tannin, but still bready and sweet. Not as rich or sweet as some German dunkels, but the flavor is quite nice. A quick zip of Noble hops on end rounds this beer nicely

One of the better dunkels around the Denver region
