This Dunkel lager poured a dark, ruby-tinted brown color, around a 20 on the SRM scale. The BJCP mentions the style as having a copper brown color with a red tint; this seems fair to me. It poured with some noticeable head, but it quickly dissipated. Almost no head remained, and there is very little lacing. It is not particularly clear, but I suspect that has more to do with the color.

Up front is an immediate sweetness, almost cloying on the first sip. It is quickly balanced with some light bitterness, but I do not get any specific hop flavor. The malt has a lot going on, including chocolate and toffee notes. There is a breadiness as well, but it's almost in the way Altbayrisch coats the mouth. The carbonation is medium to medium low.

Overall, I quite enjoyed Altbayrisch. It's weather appropriate, as there is snow outside my window. It is well-balanced leaning towards sweet, with a fair amount of nuance in the malt. I'd recommend knocking one back on a cold winter night.

On tap at Torst in Brooklyn, NY.

This one pours a rich dark-ish brown, with a quarter inch head, and a small level of lacing.

This smells pretty nice, a bit nutty, with some caramel, and baked bread, and molasses.

This is one of the better dunkels I've ever had, awesome stuff here. All of the flavors I mentioned that were in the aroma, are in the taste as well, and they all just come together in a really unified, balanced way that shows a real technical precision in brewing.

This is medium bodied, syrupy in just the right way, but with a crisp finish. There's a pretty normal level of carbonation, I guess.

This was an excellent dunkel- a nice deep cut on Torst's taplist on that day.
