4/5  rDev +1%

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.

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.

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!

Tap @ Old Chicago Old Town Foco. Dark orange-brown appearance with an off white head. Quite toasty, caramel malty, mild nutty, light mild hoppy nose. Really a delicious toasty, caramel flavor with some of the nutty, bitter elements more on the finish. Well balanced and the beer is very malty, yet not too sweet. Very drinkable, delicious beer.

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.
