4.8/5  rDev +31.5%
look: 5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 5 | feel: 4 | overall: 5

Pours out a crystaline nut brown with amber edges and an eggshell head. The head is very thick but not lasting; it quickly fades to a film over the brew. Smell is strong with bits of cappuchino, caramel, oat, and wheat. Blend it together in one bottle and you've got a concoction that you can detect from a good ten inches away from a freshly poured glass. Starts extra smooth and refreshingly crisp with a creme taste. Settles gently sour with lots of hop bitters. There is a sugary undertone to the full-bodied drink. Finishes sour and bitter, dry and strong. The aftertaste is just as edgy and lasting as the rest of the beer.

Brown, clear, rising bubbles, fair head and lace, Ii'll work on appearance.

Malty as hell, almost octoberfrest material but a bit heavier, caramel malts big time, biscuit and bread, hops presence only balances but doesn't stand out.

Thick and chewy, yet lagery. An interesting break from the various IPAs and PAs I've had in the last few weeks. Love varying the style, this one ain't a bad example either.

Flip-top 33cl bottle in Mommseneck (Haus of 100 Biers) on 17th Jan 2014.

Dark amber to brown body, off white head that produced some impressive lacing.

Malts rule the whole beer: mild, semi-sweet molasses give the brew a pleasant aroma and they also impart flavour into a body that was disappointingly thin. The bodies lack of depth shouldn't come as a surprise though, most German Dunkel beers I've had have been weak in the body texture and almost watery.

This is one of the better Dunkel beers I've had though, so don't be put off by my complaint about the body depth.

First new brew of the New Year. Sampled on 1/2/14. Comes in a pretty 330ml cool bottle with a ceramic stopper. Bottle chilled down to 36 degrees F in my beer cooler and poured into a pilsner glass.

Pours a pretty copper/amber in color with a 1-finger off white head. Some sticky lacing was seen with each sip. The aroma is of a sweet dark bready malt. The taste is about the same with just a slight hoppy finish. Very light though and not bad at all actually. Overall a good dark brew.

11.2 oz. bottle poured into pilsener
(4/12/14 best by date)

L: orange, dark brown, about 95% clear -- a slight mistiness hangs in the column, but it's by and large clear; little head even with a hard pour

S: malty, sweet bread/biscuity ... almost like a donut shop

T: fruity, floral ... at times like an old ale (prunes, dates) including the first sip, but it tends to take on the light, fruity sweet notes of an English pale ale; little hop presence

F: watery and slick with little carbonation; that hard pour robs it too much

O: it's got lots of sweet malt notes, especially in the nose, but overall it's underwhelming. better dunkels surely exist.
