Brilliant bronze color. Aromas and flavors of fresh pretzel bread, nuts, and arugula with a satiny, crisp, finely carbonated, dry-yet-fruity medium body and a smooth, interesting, medium-long chocolate fig muffin, sprouts, corn puff cereal, and clay finish. A finely balanced, very sessionable dark lager for the long haul.

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.
