Dark mahogany color. Roasted aromas of old fashioned coffee, chocolate genache, roasted pecans, chocolate covered cherries, smoky bacon, and toasty crepes with a velvety, vibrant, dryish medium body and a smooth, interesting, medium-long black toast and espresso finish. A malty black lager with just the right amount of char-roasted flavor; just right.

Dark Lager

Dark lagers (also known as Dunkel or dunkel-style lagers) range in color from dark brown to black and range in alcohol from 4.5-5.5%. At their best, these beers combine the dryish chocolate or licorice notes associated with the use of dark roasted malts and the roundness and crispness of a lager. Munich dunkel style lagers are also included in this category. These beers tend to be fuller-bodied with a hint of bready sweetness to the palate, a characteristic of the typical Bavarian malts used. Noteworthy examples of this style include: Full Sail Session Black Premium Dark Lager, Hofbräu Dunkel and MOA Noir Dark.
