Lighter beer. Good for a warm day. More complex flavor than a lager.

330mL bottle bb 12/14/18 poured into a pilsner glass at fridge temp 4.8% ABV. The beer pours bright light brown with ruby highlights. The head is khaki in color and recedes to a thin ring and leaves a little lacing. The aroma is mild with baker's cocoa, bread and yeast all contributing something. The taste is a little roasty with some bread and a mildly bitter, earthy hop finish. Mouthfeel is thin bodied, adequately carbonated and mostly dry in the finish. There is a little extra sharpness in the feel that may not belong. Overall, ok. This would be a nice option with food, but I'm fairly sure there are better in the class.

Bottle states "best before 8/28/18

Pours an incredibly deep amber-brown capped with a finger of off-white head maintaining a solid ring around the surface throughout.

Aroma is of stiff rye bread crusts, heavily roasted malts, freshly charred fire wood, and a solid barley base.

Taste invites more pronounced earthy barley notes to take the lead over now-light doses of bready malt; there's a subtle yeasty character following each not through to the finish.

Mouthfeel is relatively thin, but is bolstered nicely with medium carbonation that leads it to ultimately finish on the crisper side with some sticky, yeasty undertones.

Comfortable, bready, and loaded with yeasty barley to make for a pretty easy-drinking, if not mostly unspectacular, dunkel.

I've been rating beers with my own list for a few years and this is the best beer I've ever tasted. Wonderful color and flavor. Far from hoppy- I don't like hoppy beers.

Had at Metzger'z in Ann Arbor. Comes in a big glass mug with the right amount of head. Color is a perfect dark brown and tastes like it should. If you order a German dunkel this is what you are expecting. Got me pretty tired after drinking.

Rich mahogany color, but very thin head. Chocolate aromas. Biscuit and chocolate notes, but fairly light. Honestly, tastes exactly like Negra Modelo, which makes sense since it’s the same style, and was 1st brewed by Austrian immigrants to Mexico...and Negra Modelo isn’t bad, but I’d rather pay Negra Modelo prices.

Velety smooth, malty, drinkability. Definitely one of my new favs; it's hard to imagine it gets any better than this.
