look: 3.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

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.

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.

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

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.

Had this a couple times here at there at festivals, but this is my first go-round with a bottle on a clear palate.
It's probably worth mentioning that dunkel is one of my favorite styles and I'm judging this based upon that for better or worse.
Pours a deep mahogany brown. Head isn't too heavy, but isn't going anywhere either.
Bready and malty on the nose, with just a little bit of chocolate and hops bitterness in the end.
Sweet up-front followed by dark breads, hazelnut and cocoa. A kiss of maraschino cherry and brandy in the finish. Honestly, quite good! One of the better American versions I've had...maybe even the best?
Reminds me a lot of the version from Ayinger, which is quite the compliment. I want more already as this bomber very easily could've just been just for me (I split it).
A phenomenal take that really has no major issues at all, sans maybe a kiss of heat in the finish. Top notch by any standard.

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!).

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.
