Impression: We’d really enjoyed their Kellerbier hell and weren’t sure what to expect of this dunkel version. This is marketed as a Dunkles in the bottle but at the Keller, it’s a Kellerbier and that it really was. This one had the rockier head and while there were more hops in the nose, it was maltier flavor-wise. All that said, it was somehow drier. It was hard to put into words what it actually tasted like but it was a very enjoyable beer to drink with a very moreish dry finish. We went back and forth between the two and never did quite come to a definitive answer as to which was our favorite of the two. I guess that’s a good sign.

Back to the beer list.
