Poured into a Seattle Beer Week pint glass. Pours a medium to dark bronze amber with a half finger light khaki head with good retention and light lacing. Aroma of sweet biscuit and caramel malt, brown bread, mild dark dried stone fruit. Flavor is biscuit and bready malt with a hint of caramel, brown and dark rye bread, hints of dates, figs and dark fruit. Starts semi-sweet, finishes dry and malty with slight noble hops. Medium bodied with light creaminess. A nice malty dunkel lager with some understated, but good fruit and bread flavors. Finish is a little stark with a hint of tartness, but it tastes like rye, which fits well with the rest of the malt bill. A satisfactory domestic dunkel.

This beer was recommended by the manager of Southern Hospitality while my buddy and I were on a baseball trip in Denver this year (just now getting around the putting in my review...I know...). This was on tap into a pint glass and really hit the spot with the barbecue that I was indulging in. This beer is a clear, dark amber in color with a thin white head that dissipates fairly slowly to a thin lacing. The carbonation is low in concentration and readily visible. 4/5 The aroma is very enticing with notes of caramel, brown sugar, buttered & toasted wheat bread, and herbal hops. The sweet aromas are the strongest with the toast playing the role of "painter's canvas" to work off of. 3.75/5 The flavor starts off with a nice bit of light caramel and quickly moves to toasted & buttered wheat bread which really comes out strongly. Surprisingly, a bit of dark fruitiness comes out right behind the bread with dates and raisins making an appearance. The herbal hops come in at the very end, simply to even things out a bit. There is no noticeable bitterness to this beer. 4/5 This beer comes across as medium bodied, although it is on the lighter end of medium. Wet & coating, but not viscous. The carbonation comes across as a light tickle with no burn and there is no dryness to the mouthfeel. 4/5 This is a very good and enjoyable dunkel lager that features a hint of fruitiness that I don't normally get with this style. Easily a sessionable beer that drinks easy while providing a layered experience. It is a bit sweeter and less bready than I am used to with dunkels, but that is not necessarily a bad thing. 4/5

12 oz. Can

Pours a nice clean/clear golden brown color, very nice carbonation, with a pretty nice one-finger creamy off-white head, which leaves some sticky lacing behind. The nose is malty, slightly sweet. The taste is malty, sweet, slightly bitter. Medium body, with a pretty nice dry/bitter finish. Overall, a pretty tasty brew.

Pours a tobacco brown; 2 finger off white head; 80% opacity.

Wet, musty malts; some dry barley grain and caramel syrup; light straw. Quiet bouquet.

Taste is like the nose but more pronounced; mostly roasted barley, nuts & toffee, a bit of root or sarsaparilla; and a Euro grassiness thrown in at the end.

Feel is the best part. Rich and creamy, a durable and chewy texture; has a semi-dry nip at the end.

Overall impressions : It's not something I'd race towards to try again, but it's not a bad Munich Dunkel. In line with the German top dawgs? No, not really. There's less caramel and more straw and a weak nose overall. Yet, it's still not a bad brew to drink.
