Notes/Commercial Description:
Like Shaft, Dolemite and Blacula before him, guess who’s getting his own sequel? That’s right, Dr. Funk is strutting his way back to town for another go round. This Bavarian dark lager was a hit with all the ladies and fellas when the Funk was featured in the Showcase, so we've brought back the grand uncle of dunkel in his own seasonal six-pack.

This poured a nice chocolate brown with a head that stuck around for a while. The nose had a bit of chocolate and caramel but didn't really jump out at you. The taste was kind of earthy, with a slightly chocolatey sweetness and a coffee aftertaste. I've had this beer before and even though I've enjoyed it it always comes off like something is missing. That was prevalent again.

Not a bad dunkel but not one to stick in the beer memory for long as it offers up some caramel notes to the lager base but stays a basic course with some PNW hops thrown in to the mix. I much prefer the Rural Brewer Brown Ale to this as it has more complexity and a better mouthfeel. Drinkable but not among Phillips best .

A - Very dark brown, almost completely opaque aside from from a small amount of light passing through the beer at the very bottom of the glass. One finger of thick eggshell head with good retention

S - Caramel, breadiness and a hint of chocolate. Fairly weak overall nose.

T - Sweet caramel, toffee and brown sugar flavors are dominant. Some floral hop notes and the slightest hint of chocolate in the background.

M - Medium body. Slightly creamy. Moderate carbonation.
