Walnut color. Savory aromas of chocolate mousse, hints of hickory, and asparagus with a satiny, finely carbonated, light-to-medium body and a short-to-medium carob-molasses cake, grilled watermelon, and cucumber finish. A carefree dark lager for pub grub.

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.
