Wanted to give this one a try after having the Dinkel Acker Pilsner. This beer is similar to most of the Dunkel beers out there. It's got the muddy brown color with little bit of yellow around the edges. It had the aroma of clove and banana. This beer also has a similar flavor to the pilsner a bit.

11.2 oz green bottle, I'm hoping for no skunkage.

It pours a dark brown with a hint of reddich/orange/gold. The head is fizzy and off-white.

The smell is classic, no skunk here. It has caramel, cocoa, and dark bread. Along with this is some honey and some light husky grain. I'm not really smelling any hops.

The flavor is excellent, everything you want in a dunkel. It is smooth and caramally with some cocoa, raisin, and munich malts. The hops are present in the flavor and add a little zest to it.

It is extremely drinkable. A winner.

Poured a thick, oily dark with little head. Smelled and tasted of chocolate with a little hint of coffee. It had a solid body but didn't seem too heavy and was very drinkable. It was the same price as the Miller Lite's so it seemed a pretty good value.

Poured from a green bottle into a weizen glass. Has a dark brown color with a 1 inch head. Aroma is sweet and slightly fruity. Has a good but not strong flavor with mild bitterness. Feels a little creamy in the mouth. Drinkability is o.k. Overall this is a pretty good beer.

A - I poured beer into glass and it left about 1.5" head in glass which unfortunately disappeared fairly quickly. It has a nice dark color, somewhere between red/amber/mahogany.

S - Roasty malt flavor, no hops or anything else.

T - Dominant dark malt flavor, no real hops, slightly bitter (just barely) and well balanced.

M - Great flavor, leaves slight dark malt aftertaste in mouth for another 15-20 sec.

D - Smooth beer, definitely great for heaver foods such as bbq, not necessarily your thirst quencher for 90+deg weather. Great beer!

The overall carbonation was somewhat flat; however, from the past, I know that many munich dunkel beers are like that. I personally like this beer and cannot wait to get another one.
