Pours a clear dark orange with a 1/2 inch foamy khaki head that settles to an oily film on top of the beer. Small streaks and dots of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of dark malt and some slight caramel aromas. Taste is slightly sour with some dark malt, bread, and caramel flavors. This beer has a good level of carbonation with a crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer but I think this one smells better than it tastes.

500ml bottle poured into a Paulaner stein

a: pours a deep brown/ruby color, two finger head quickly dissipates to a thin film. not much lacing going on.

s: some roasted malts, a bit of hops, maybe some honey sweetness, but nothing much else.

t: starts with a strong roasted malt flavor, some hints of honey and spices, and ends with a strong kick of hops bite and carbonation. really nice.

o: a lot more complex than most munich dunkels - quite nice - and I liked the contrast of dark malts and hops.

On tap at Rosie’s Wine bar. Pours ruby with a long lasting white head. Aroma is of grain, toffee and honey. Medium, slightly crisp body. Toffee toasted malt, noble hops and some cloves combine on the palate for a clean, fresh taste. Long hoppy finish is supported by sweet malt. This is a world-class dunkel.
