I poured this beer and it has a dark brownish color body(almost like ice tea) with no head to it. The smell has a roasty choc malt aroma to it. The taste is malty with a little choc and a bread, doughnut flavor. Mouthfeel is smooth and overall pretty tasty.

Appearance - a dark caramel, iced tea hue, a finger of smooth even mocha foam. Some lacing down the sides for a nice touch.
Aroma - notes of dough, yeast, chocolate, a bit of cola.
Taste - lightly roasted malts with a definite sweet edge. Cola, a note of anise. Ends sweetly with a tickle of hops.
Mouthfeel - weighty, smooth, fluffy carbonation is medium but almost feels less so.
Overall - would buy a sixer of these. Good stuff.

Reviewed from old notes.
12oz bottle poured into a lager glass.
A: Brown in color with caramel shades. Tight beige head, great retention. Plenty of foamy lacing coating the glass in sheets.
S: Brown sugar, brown cocoa, caramel, crust. Rich and inviting. Hints of floral hopping and dried herbs.
T: Brown molasses up front. Brown cocoa and nutty flavors. Bread crust. Dried grass and tame herbal hops in the background. Hint of vague fruit and perhaps just the slightest suggestion of alcohol. Finishes with lingering caramel, molasses, and cocoa.
M: Medium bodied. Full-ish. Rounded and creamy. Moderate carbonation.
O: Well executed, an all-around good brew.

Appearance: molassesy brown with a nice dark and medium brown mix, thick tan head, great clarity
Aroma: malty sweet, great bread and molasses notes with some dark fruit hints as well. No noticeable hop aroma, clean yeast character
Taste: great depth of malt character spanning the same bready and molasses notes found in the aroma. A nice balanced and crisp finish that leaves just a hit of of sweetness and fruitiness
Mouthfeel: crisp, medium bodied lager feel, medium carbonation
Overall: Delicious example of the German classic dunkel. This definitely took me back to sitting in the Munich beer halls sucking down dunkels by the liter. Great balance with slight residual sweetness and a little fruitiness on the finish.

Clear reddish brown with a fluffy beige cap. Good head retention, sticky lacing. Nutty and bready aroma, malt with a hint of cola and cocoa, molasses, faint raisin. Medium bitterness with a bit of lingering bitterness. Malty, nutty and bready, slightly grainy, slightly sweet, brown sugar. Grain husk astringency, creamy carbonation, medium body, decent texture overall. Easy drinking.

LOOK: Pours a clear dark amber color, with a pillowy froth, not much lace.
SMELL: Highly caramelized Munich malts, giving off sweet bready notes as well as toffee, caramel and multi grain toast.
TASTE: Malty, very authentic tasting dunkel beer. Mild leafy, citrusy hops are kept well in check but add a pleasant bitterness to the toasty caramel malt profile. Has just a touch of clove like spice. Perhaps more fuller bodied and richer than many of the style, that is hardly a complaint.
FEEL: Full bodied, well carbonated. This richly malty beer has depth and character, and drinks very easily.
OVERALL: Flavorful and balanced, this Munich style Dunkel tastes like it came from a small town in Germany. Expertly executed by the Boston Beer Co, this is one they should have kept around.

(Served in a dimple mug)
A- This beer pours a dense brown body that glows at the base with a thin head that soon boils away.
S- The aroma has some Munich malt in the nose with a bit of a coffee malt hint but it is pretty clean in the nose.
T- The grainy flavor of pale malt has some pot caramel notes coming through as it opens and hints of roasted biscuit malt for a moment in the clean finish. There is a spicy hop hint in the aftertaste.
M- The medium-full mouthfeel has a tight little fizz.
O- This beer seems a bit thick and heavy but not much malt flavor or it is all muttled together.
