Appearance: Pours a reddish brown with superb clarity, like most of Capital's offerings. It's light tan head starts out fairly small and fades quickly to a small, mostly complete cap.
Smell: The aroma is malty and clean with toasted Munich malt, caramel, and a hint of roasted malts. I detect a bit of a nuttiness as well. Balancing it out is a whiff of spicy, herbal hops.
Taste: Bittersweet, with lots of burnt caramel and toasted malts. Hints of nuts and chocolate fade in and out. A spicy hop bite develops quickly. There's a fair amount of hop bitterness, but it plays second fiddle to the malts. Finishes dry and clean with a sweet tinge of toffee and bready malt.
Mouthfeel: Fairly dry in mouthfeel, with a light body. It could use a bit more body. Quite crisp and clean.
Drinkability: This is a pretty good beer. It's easy-going enough to make it drinkable in just about any weather, but has enough character to hold my attention.

Pours brown with a head that soon becomes patchy. Some spotted lacing sticks.
The smell is of lightly roasted grain, some cocoa and a touch of earthy noble hops.
The taste is of sweet dark grain, bread that is similar to a light pumpernickel and a hint of cocoa. Some musty grass in the finish.
It is crisp and smooth with an appropriate light to medium body.
A well-balanced, easy-drinking traditional dark lager! Enjoyable!

Capital Dark pours a dark brownish color with a small lacing head. There is a malty and yeasty aroma. The taste is much of the same, good yeasty flavors, with a good solid malty backbone. Good body, nice flavors, a bit on the watery side. Overall its a nice dunkel watery, but enjoyable.
