Malty. Brownish red. Full bodied. Still a nice crisp fizz. Finishes very smoothly and has a hint of floral-ish fruit. Maybe almost honeysuckle or watermelon like. Not a "fruit beer" or even "fruity" by any means. Nor artificial tasting. Very natural and subtle.

Time to change the yeast out as the lemony bite is too harsh

Pours cloudy brown red with off white head
Smells like a mix of cloves and dark malts, some coffee, chocolate.
Taste is dark and fruity with muted banana undertones coming through, yeast has a noticeable presence. Nothing too crazy
Mouthfeel is nice, drinkable, good level of spiciness, and solid finish. Brown and maybe slightly too bubbly
Overall solid beer, might have been better a bit earlier

Had on tap at Not Your Average Joes. I am a fan of this brewery. Haven't had the dunkel in a whole. The pour was a very deep copper color, with a great head. The lacing on this was great. Very impressive pour. A very yeasty taste with a great mix of malts. This had an even better aftertaste. I can't say I have had many beers of this type, but this may keep me coming back for more. Very good

Looks like chocolate milk. Strong starting head, but it settles to rim bubbles. A few spots of lace are left on the glass.

Sour nose with a toasted malt background. Low wheat and a modicum of yeast.

Not so dark nor so wheaty on the tongue, but these tastes are the strongest. Neutral body with an elevated level of carbonation. No real flaws, but not very interesting either.
