Pretty decent sized light brown to tan colored head slowly settles leaving a bit of lacing clinging to the edges as it recedes above a deep reddish amber colored beer.

Well roasted caramel malt aroma bordering on warmed dark chocolates.

Smooth dark roasted malts taste with a light Hershey's dark milk chocolate edge to it.

Dryish aftertaste with a bit of the dark malts tastes hanging around with this smooth and creamy medium bodied drink.

Smooth and tasty, pretty pleased with buying this stuff, just wish I had bought more.

This is a seasonal brew that we all here in Houston cannot wait for. Wonderful flavor, and strangely, I find its flavor is more pronounced from the can.

12 oz can pours a dark brown color with a creamy tan head. Ok retention and great swiss-cheese lace. Pretty good looking brew

Nose is roasty with an astringent malt backdrop. Not the typical smooth choco/toasty malt I am used to in a Dunkel.

Hmmmm, mild chocolate and bigger roast. The malts just dont really smooth out the way a good Dunkel does. Pretty much a letdown for Karbach after many a good canned seasonal....and this coming from a huge Dunkel fan. Mouthfeel is actually a high point despite the roast. Carbonation is fine-bubbled. Its not horrible, but with some of the recent successes from Karbach and my love for the Dunkel style, I was hoping for something special.
