Contract brewed for Downey Brewing Company.

Consumed at Downey Brewing Company on April 18, 2011.

Beer is a medium/dark caramel color with good clarity (most dunkels are a little cloudy). Off white head less than a finger tall soon diminishes into a sticky little crown.

Subtle hint of sweet malty aroma.

Flavor is toffee and caramel with apricot note towards end. Some roasted bitterness on finish that hangs around a long time after each sip. No clove or banana, as with many dunkels.

Unexceptional mouthfeel though ever so slightly dry.

A whole pint of this is a bit boring.
