Our darkest year round beer however, looks can be deceiving. Dunkel features notes of chocolate with a full malt back bone. Contrary to its dark color, this beer finishes crisp and clean with a round hop flavor.

Dark brown colored beer with a rapidly fading head. Taste is chocolate,nuts and a little bit of coffee bitterness. I think this is one beer that you should try at least one time.

Dark ruby brown body with a two finger beige head that dissipates to a wispy head with a solid, clingy ring around the glass. Moderate clingy lacing as well.
The aroma is roasted malts that present themselves as lightly roasted coffee. Also roasted, buttery nuts.
Roasted malts, dark bread, coffee and hints of Baker's chocolate in the taste. Herbal, floral hops towards the end.
Medium body with a crisp carbonation. Full flavored with a dry spicy finish.

12 oz bottle from a variety pack to a Pilz flute.
Looks like a root beer, medium dark brown/red liquid, tan/brown head. Tiny bubbles rising through the entire session.
Aroma has both malt and hop presence, but there the malt takes over in the taste.
This is one of those tongue coaters that washes away with the effervescence.

Pours a dark reddish brown color. Clear when held to the light. Thick frothy off-white head dissipates steadily leaving a thin layer of bubbly foam along the top of the beer. Lots of lacing left behind.

Smell is a nutty aroma with some dark malts, pumpernickel bread and roasted nuts.

Taste follows the nose with dark roasted malts, bread, pumpernickel, roasted nuts, and a spicy herbal hop finish. some hints of cocoa are there, but not super noticeable. Very simple yet well done flavors here,

Feel is light and easy drinking. Smooth. Medium carbonation. Semi-dry finish.

Overall a really nice dunkel lager. Quite well done.

Poured from 12 oz. bottle into pilsener glass. It pours a lovely dark cola color with ruby hues, and a finger of foamy, light khaki head and generous lacing. The nose features roasted malt, pumpernickel bread, nuts, and a whiff of caramel. It has a pleasing flavor of earthy, bready malt, nuts, and a hint of sweetness from the yeast. It finishes with a slightly bitter hop flavor and a touch of caramel. It is light and crisp with pleasant carbonation. With an ABV of 5.7% it is very easy to drink. Overall, I really enjoy von Trapp's darker offerings. The Dunkel is flavorful and a pleasure to drink. It would pair well with a nice piece of pork or for casual drinking any time of the year.
