From tasting notes. L: Poured into a pilsner glass. A brilliant dark brown liquid supports a 3” white foam collar that produces extensive lace. S: Spicy malt aromas. T: Spicy malt flavors, a touch of cardamom, lightly sweet, some nuttiness, low hop bitterness, slight astringency on the finish. F: Medium body and carbonation. O: A well crafted easy to drink Munich dunkel. (375 characters)

22 oz. bottle, with no apparent bottled on date present. The new 'dunkel lager' from Two Brothers, not a style I am too familiar with, but my expectations are decent enough.

Poured into a clear balloon snifter.

A - Pours an excellent dark caramel amber with some nice clarity to it. Some hues of ruby when held to the light. A finger and a half of frothy khaki head. Nice scattered bubbly lacing. Looks very nice.

S - Smell is kind of strange; not entirely what I was expecting. Musty yeast presence, dusty green apples, sweetened German malt varieties, some mild booze fumes despite the low abv, and a strange muted peachy melon-like fruitiness.

T - Taste is comprised of sweetened bready / grainy / lightly husky malt presence, corn, some caramel, & hints of chocolate maltiness. Muted peachy / melon like fruitiness again, but fairly indistinct. The bittersweet chocolatey / caramel malt tastes really increase as you sip on the beer.

M - Feel is smooth and creamy. Medium-light bodied, with crisp carbonation. Finishes lightly dry and bitter.

Overall, easy drinking and flavorful with a fairly modest 5.90% abv; a good representation of the style I suppose I'd say. Probably not something I would seek out again, but it was definitely worth having. Barrel age this beer, and I'm sure I would love it to death.

Refreshing yet substantial enough for a cold night. Not as roasty as a Schwarz, as it should be. Highly carbonated and quenching, I could drink this all the time. Clean, well made. A great dunkel from the folks at Two Brothers. I also appreciate the affordable price for a bomber. (280 characters)
