Marble Dunkel: A Dunkel For All Seasons


No fuss, no pretence, a plain statement in white letters carrying no more story than simply stating what sits behind the label and a powerful alcohol content. What more does one need, anyway?  This is all the Dunkel you need today, and it’s one for all seasons.


From Marble, a slightly off-centre offering. Very nice it is too, and much like the label, it’s no-nonsense. Caramel-dark, super-smooth in the body, although missing a huge, edifying head to push through. There’s a nice whiff of alcohol in the nose, and all those estery, banana notes you want and being mentally ticked off. There’s a really interesting, fruit-bubblegum note running through it, which makes it an interesting, Northern take on the classic.

Stay tuned for a mini-Marble-marathon this week.

  1. Love Marble beers, I have a Dubbel & Tripel upstairs which I think will be grand for the upcoming #openit weekend. Hope you have the 1888 Ginger Stout on your hitlist for this week?
    Such a bloody damn shame we rarely see Marble on cask in Stoke

  2. Is this actually a lager, then? Interesting. Didn’t know Marble dabbled.
