Dark ruby with a large head of off-white carbonation. Wispy but attractive lace.

Nose is caramel, yeast, and grain.

Tastes sweet and malty, with a hint of roastiness and an almost burnt finish. I also get a little flash of fruit in the malts. Overall, not bad, but lacking complexity.

Second dunkel I've tried.

A - Pours dark with a white head which dissipates quickly. Looked to be very under carbonated.

S - Malts and yeast. The smell is not very strong.

T - Malty and and breadish. The finish reminds me of unsalted pretzels. After a few seconds I noticed a bit of sweetness as well. Over all very light in taste.

M - Smoother than I expected it to be and carbonation was just right. Easy to drink.

O - Not bad, though a bit lighter than I'd hoped.

A - Dark brown in color with red hues. Head is a dense tan foam with moderate retention. Lacing is moderate as well. Its there but just very thin.

S - The nose is mostly of toasted bread and grains. Also noticeable is maple syrup, raisins, sugar and a light hop bitterness to give it a bit of balance.

T - The taste is also mostly toasted grains and bread. This time around I pick up light coffee. Its a little sweet but not nearly as much as the nose. Maple syrup and brown sugar are most apparent.

M - Medium bodied and pretty smooth. Carbonation seems ok.

O - Just an ok beer. Nothing wows me. Way better dunkels out there for the price. Worth a try none the less.
