Minutely hazy walnut color. Toasty aromas and flavors of chocolate nut muffin, granola, and grilled romaine with a supple, vibrant, finely carbonated, dry-yet-fruity medium body and an amusing, medium-long finish manifesting notes of roasted nuts and turnips, endive, and minerals finish. A crisp and quenching dark lager that will pair nicely.

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.
