I'm not familiar with this type of beer and to me it tasted a lot like wine for some reason.

Nice head with decent lacing. Beautiful color dark bronze. Not to sweet but smell and taste molasses. Nice consistent taste throughout. Really nice beer.

Best dunkel I have had. Honestly questioning myself on why I don't give it a 5. This beer is the only reason I go to their restaurant. Don't recommend this beer on the golf course or after playing softball, but that's about it.

Look - color looks like a glass of tea, solid 1.5 finger head fades to minimal lacing.
Smell - molasses, caramel, and a metal twang.
Taste - lots of caramel and molasses. Typical of the style, but sweeter. No hops whatsoever.
Feel - not a ton of carbonation, feels thicker, the finish lasts.
Overall - I like the style a lot, and wish I could try this on draft. The two dunkels I have had in bottles haven't been as great as the one I had on draft, but can't find dunkels on tap in my area. Cheers!

Served on draft in a shaker pint glass.

Not much head, medium chestnut brown in color. Nutty aroma, a bit of caramel. Taste is slightly sweet , smooth. Thin to medium body.
