Commercial Description

Steeped in a long history dating back hundreds of years, this "old-fashioned" beer is again in vogue. Lager is the German word meaning "to store," so this beer ages three times longer than our ales do. "Dunkel" means dark in German, but don't let the color fool you, it is by no means heavy, overbearing or bitter. In fact, it proves to be a very drinkable session beer.

    [Best served in a Dimpled Mug]

    The pour was a clear medium brown with a enormous (4 finger) light tan frothy head that lasted throughout and had some excellent spotty sheets of lace.

    The aroma was of a roasted dark bread malt, a pine hop and a musty yeast with notes of chocolate, coffee, toffee and dark fruit (raisins and prunes).

    The taste was nice and malty with a touch of toffee sweetness and a hint of chocolate from the beginning then proceeded to become mildly bitter and hoppy with a note of coffee and just a light presence of dark fruit towards the end. The flavor lasted a decent while after the swallow with a nice roasty hoppiness left lingering on the taste buds.

    Mouthfeel was a shade or two under medium in body with a nice dry texture and an almost fizzy carbonation.

    Overall an impressive roasty brew. Sweet, bitter and quite malty, it had it all going on...
