Capital dark is, well, a clear oak mahogany as I pour the bottle into my Corsendonk tulip. A gentle tan head pops up and then nestles down for the afternoon nap.

Subtle hints of caramel within the malt for the aroma and the quaff. Just a hint of banana in the finish adds to the enjoyment of this fresh brew, along with some dark fruit like plum and raison. Very crisp and dry finish, plenty of hop balance in this malt first brew.

Darn fine brew, tasty and "sessionable", as the 5+ % not really kicking in for a bottle or two. I'd have no problem picking up a sixer this winter.

3.84/5  rDev +3.8%
look: 3.25 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

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.
