Dark bronze color. Lively, toasty, creamy aromas of creme brulee, toasted date bread, and toffee with a velvety, vibrant, finely carbonated, dry-yet-fruity medium body and a tingling, complex, medium-length caramelized fruits, honeyed pound cake, and watercress finish. A rock solid 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.
