Tastes a lot like the typical homebrew from the eighties..."Let's see, I have some caramel malt and Munich malt..and here's some chocolate malt.." Nothing at all wrong with this beer, just not what I expected when I read "Munich Dunkel" 'cause it sure as hell ain't that. None of those toasted grain flavors are appropriate in a Munich Dunkel. Easy to drink though with a creamy texture and huge khaki head. Roasted grain dominates with no serious off-flavors. Call it a light Porter and it's a world-beater!

The beer pours a very dark brown color with an off-white head. The aroma is full of toffee and caramel with some lightly toasted malt and cocoa notes. A very nice smelling beer. The flavor is made up of a lot of roasted malt and cocoa. I also get some toffee, grass and earth notes. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

Appearance - A nice medium brown to dark light absourbing goodness, excelent for the beer

Smell - Not much here besides mild hops maybe noble style. I wish there was a bit more to get.

Taste - Initial flavor is too complex and not pleasant but within a second a coffee and nut taste hits. It sticks around as well.

Mouthfeel - That aftertaste with carbonation is a great match and enjoyable for a evening drink.

Overall - A good beer just wish the smell and inital flavor were improved. I will have it again though

Interesting beer. It doesn't actually say what style it is on the label, and I don't know that I would call it a Munich dunkel. It's quite chocolatey in the nose with a slight coffee-like roasted edge, and that carries over into the flavor along with some caramel and light nuttiness. It's more malty, and I guess chocolatey, than I'd expect of a dunkel but that doesn't change the fact that it's a great beer. If there's a flaw to it, and I don't really think there is, it's that it's pretty much the same straight through. Of course that rich, chocolatey-coffee character isn't bad, and it's not sweet but it kind of suggests that in its maltiness. Nicely done. A satiating dark and malty beer that's quite drinkable.

Very good Dunkel, they have great water quality and that really enhances the taste of this beer. I enjoy it for lighter beer.

Pours out a dark nutty brown with a solid head. Smells of clean yeast, dark malts, and roasted/toasted malts. Tastes like mocha, caramel, and toffee with a clean yeast. Foamy carbonation with a medium-light body. This is a tasty dark lager.
