Sitting here drinking it right now. ,5L bottle into a mug. Pours a dark amber colour. It has a fairly large and frothy tan head, drops a bit but the remainder has the staying power of a house. By far the lightest of the darks I've had. Draws unusual webs as it goes down the mug, but that could just be the mug's fault.

I absolutely adore the nose of this one. It's aromatherapy. Wonderful toasted malts and nuts with sweet notes of caramel and bread. It's delicious. It's enticing. It's everything I could ask for from the aroma of a beer. Toasty and tasty.

Not quite perfect, but pretty damn close. Start with the nose. It has a malty, bready taste. On top, add sweet nut and wood syrup (not like maple syrup, but not like caramel, either -- not something I'm too great at explaining). Some roasted-coffee-like flavours. The sweetness gives way to a bit of roasted, smoked hops flavour (I wonder what that recipe would actually taste like, though -- probably not nearly as tasty as this beer). Almost no bitterness on the finish. Extremely well-balanced. Never beats you to death with anything and certainly doesn't hurt in terms of bitterness.

It feels smooth and substantial in the mouth. It actually appears significantly more carbonated than it feels. Slight tingle and otherwise creamy. Definitely no slouch here. Finish is somewhat dry. I thought about drinkability briefly before I noticed where my beer was. It begs you to drink more. You look at the lacing, the sudsy foam and the distinct dark amber colour and you just want more. I could (but won't) get plastered off this one without even noticing it. It's good stuff, every last bit of it. Not bitter by any means. You just want more as you go. Bottoms up, boys!

3.55/5  rDev -8.5%
look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.5

11.2oz bottle poured into a lager glass.

A: Brown in color with orange hues. Rocky off-white head retains very well. Foamy clumps of lacing adhere to the glass.

S: Grainy and husky. Bready, toffee, crust. Hint of brown cocoa powder. Caramel. Grassy hops. Subtle grape leaf. Clean.

T: Toast, caramel, cola, brown cocoa powder, brown bread. Husky grain. Hay. Grassy hops. Sweet. Clean. Whisper of alcohol. Caramel, cocoa, and husk on the finish.

M: Medium bodied. Full and creamy on the palate. Some syrupy residual sugars. Low carbonation amplifies the syrupy feel. Husky grain brings a mild astringency.

O: Just as in the pilsner, the husky grain gets to me. It would be a more enjoyable beer if not for that. Could use a little more carbonation too.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

Poured clear amber brown with a weak head.
Aroma had more sweet caramel malt than medium roasted malt, but this is reversed in tasting. The lightly sweet flavor suggests dark bread baked with some brown sugar.
Medium body with spot on carbonation.
O: very good exemplar of style.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

Poured into hefeweizen glass.

A- 23-30, a beautiful dark orange-brown. Quickly dissipating, one-finger beige head with a nice, thin retention & webby lacing.

S- Sweet, plump, honey-wheat bread aroma. I wanna toast it and put turkey & mustard on it!

T- Toasty, medium-bodied malt, & slick. A perfect touch of subtle sweetness followed by a drier, subtle hoppy finish.

M & O- Moderate carb bite. Very well balanced. I'm happy this was my first Dunkel!

3.26/5  rDev -16%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.25

11.2oz bottle poured into straight pint glass. Poured a clean, clear ruby-brown color with less than 1/4 inch of light tan head that had low retention and lacing.

The aroma was pretty good, lightly sweet malts and a nice earthy grain base. The flavor was also pretty typical, the grains were slightly overpowered by the sweetness of the malts. There was just the lightest hop presence.

The body was medium, for the style, not as heavy as some, was clean, and had, considering the sweetness, a relatively dry finish. Drinkability was good, the beer was gone fairly quickly, and I'd have another. Overall, a decent example of the style, not special or notable, but if you're in the mood, you could do worse.
