A great dunkel, and generally a great beer. As all dunkels, it has a slightly bitter, and rich and complex taste with hints of chocolate, that leaves a somewhat bitter-sweet after-taste, and a beautiful dark amber colour. The bottle itself is so nice, that I kept it.

Highly recommended for people who like dunkels, and a good introduction to dunkels for people who haven't tried it

Appearance: Poured into a Pilsner glass is a dark mahogany with copper hues and an off white head about one finger thick that leaves behind nice lacing.

Aroma: Molasses is front and center with light notes of caramelized sugar. Dark fruits, raisins, faint prune, grape skin, toffee. Bready caramel malts blanket the outer layer.

Taste: Brown bread, a wave of molasses with a sticky toffee texture on the palate. Caramelized sugar, raisins, light banana notes, dark fruits. Bready caramel malts roam all through it with notes of toffee rounding it out.

Notes: Dunkel lagers are few and far between and what a find this one is. Amazing maltiness so dam tasty and will definitely pick this one up again. Prost.

330ml, swing-top bottle, the physically shortest of the new offerings from this brewery now available in Alberta.

This beer pours a clear, bright medium bronzed amber colour, with three fingers of puffy, densely foamy, and somewhat creamy ecru head, which leaves some layered streaky and sudsy lace around the glass as it quickly dissolves.

It smells of bready, doughy caramel malt, sweet nuts, brown sugar syrup, a bit of heady yeast, and spicy, earthy, and grassy noble hops. The taste is semi-sweet, grainy caramel and wheat malt, a still prominent nuttiness, some middling dark orchard fruit, subtle yeast notes, and a decent leafy, weedy, and moderately floral hoppiness.

The carbonation is fairly low-key in its plain and ineffectual frothiness, the body just on the low side of yer typical middleweight, and smooth enough, I suppose, nothing really existing here to mess things up. It finishes still trending sweet, but pulling back a bit, and letting the various indistinct bittering agents step it up.

Another easy-going, yet hardly world-challenging brew from this extremely northern German outfit. Mostly too sweet in terms of its drawbacks, which is hardly a cardinal sin, but it does get a bit old and tired seeming by the end of only this wee serving size, nein?

This is a made in Germany Dunkel Lager. I might have set my expectations for this beer too high. I poured from the bottle into the appropriate glasswear and noticed it was a little lighter than I was expecting. Not an issue though. The smell is weak, but the notes you'd expect are more or less present. Taste wise, it was seriously lacking. Just like the smell, the flavor was also mute. Mouthfeel was watery at best. Very drinkable though. I found myself downing the bottle in about half the time I would normally drink a glass of a similar style. If it was at a cheaper price point (my bottle set me back $3), this would make a killer party / session beer. Unfortunately, with price taken into consideration, I feel this beer relies heavily on the coolness of the bottle and not the merit of the liquid inside.
