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.

Schönramer Altbayrisch Dunkel has an extremely thick, cream-colored, crackling head, a clear, copper color, and very heavy lacing left behind. The aroma is of sweet, syrupy, brown bread, and the flavor is the same, with appropriate, balancing bitterness. Mouthfeel is medium and chewy, and this one finishes crisp and refreshing.

On tap. First impression was a hint of fruitiness that I can't place. Good substantial coppery color, slim head, medium body but almost no aroma. Flavor is a nice toasty...almost smoky...& balanced betwixt the bitter & sweet. A good example of the restraints I like in most German brews. At a 5% I find the most expressive phrase here is 'well managed restraint'. Not passive, but when it does 'get you'...& it will...it does so masterfully. I guess it comes with it's well aged pedigree. Cheers to the years.
