Dunkel, First Impressions (Part One)

Last night, Marco and I tried the first bottles of our Dunkel. For a still-young beer, we were very pleased with it. The color is extremely dark, almost opaque. The taste is nice and roasty, not too dissimilar to a good strong cup of coffee.

If anything, the beer was a bit too cold for flavors other than toastiness to come through. The bottles had been chilling in the fridge for a couple of hours, and the mugs had been stashed in the freezer. We plan to consume the rest at cellar temperature, and I'll give my further impressions on trying the less-chilled beer.
