Was on tap at Vimala's Curryblossom Cafe in Chapel Hill, NC.

With a straight brown color, it is light, yet fully malty with toffee and a milk chocolate roasty taste. Balanced and slightly sweet with a great mouthfeel and just the right amount of carbonation. Fantastic for the style!

12oz bottle into glass.

A - Deep brown almost black. Got darker as the glass got thicker. Nice full head that quickly faded into a thin lingering one.

S - dark and sweet smell. Like a damp basement, but in a good way

t - chocolate roasty flavor with a hint of sweetness

m - lightly carbonated for a medium mouthful

d - wonderfully smooth and refreshing. Left me wanting more.

My first Mother Earth beer...I heard some good things. I was impressed with this one.

Drank on the beach in Emerald Isle with beer cozy...served Ice cold as it was in the freezer for 10 minutes before going out.

Smell: Heavily chocolate or toffee, nice.

Taste: I would call this a full body, with little to no bitterness. VERY NICE FRESH TASTE. Some carbonation, not too little, not too much. Impressive!

Great dunkel, if they start selling in Pennsylvania I will definitely purchase more. Otherwise, I will just enjoy on Vacation.
