Medium dark clear mahogany color. Lively, waxy, woody aromas and flavors of candle, cocoa roasted nuts, dark toast, and vinaigrette on greens with a soft, crisp, effervescent, dry-yet-fruity light-to-medium body and a smooth, charming, crisp dried fruit, toasted corn bread, charred nuts, and pepper finish. A nice dark lager for that table.

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.
