The appearance has a certain silkiness to the color with a clean and clear brown. The head was built on a bed of bubbles and laced well.
The scent held a damp grain and malt sweetness, a touch sour but fragrant.
The flavors are strong on the grain, mostly barley, with a nice sweetness. Catch some biscuity flavor but the barley malt sweetness remains at the forefront.
The feel is a touch thin, not necessarily watery, but not as full as it should. The carbonation is nominal in feel and it drinks easy.

Possibly the best American Dunkel that I have had. Deep woody brown in color. A 2 inch dark tan head is easily achieved with a strong pour from the growler. Also enjoyed this on tap, that is why I bought a growler to go. Rich rustic malts on the nose with mixed in German yeast. This same feel transcends directly to the flavor profile as minerals and dirty good malty sweetness grace the palate fully. The German feel is so complete and full in the flavors taking off here. Really a spectacular example of the style.

Aah, a taste of Bavaria hits home in the Bluegrass! It lager smoothness and robust malt character ensures an ease of drinking and complex interest to keep novice and connoisseurs alike coming back pint after pint.
Caught somewhere between brown and bronze, the tawny lager shines with bright clarity and deep golden highlights. A dense creamy head floats the lager for over half the session. Delicate lacing leaves pocketed foam patterns on the glass.
Caramel, toast, nuts and bread all culminate for a well melded and smooth aroma. Toasted barley and light yeasty starch balanced against a floral and spicy hop note for a pleasant scent heading into the first taste.
To taste, its light caramel sweetness provide early grain impressions. Rounded by savory bread crust and toast flavor, complementing pecan and walnut, and a hint of chocolate gives the palate a new experience at every sip. Backed by lager-like smoothness, a light mineral and sulfur note takes hold just as the noble hop bitterness provides a spicy dryness to its finish.
Medium-light in body, the beer registers a moderate residual sweetness that creates a little more weight than is usual. Its bready texture holds firm deep into the taste even as sweetness slowly fades and carbonation begins to release. Finishing with a light minty alcohol cooling, the beer lingers pleasantly with caramel and toast.
Blue Stallion's Munich Dunkel is a fine dark lager that favors malt sweetness and a bready profile over that of the common toasty-dry Bavarian versions. In its current state, it would really bring out the sweetness in those Munich sausages and fresh baked soft pretzels.
