650 ml bomber

Pour puts a dark copper-brown lager in the glass with a 2 finger sticky off-white cap which had fair retention and lacing qualities.

Aroma is classic American Dark...no malts but rich roasty tones, light caramel sweetness, hint of coffee, good dose of herbal Hersbrucker hops.

Moderately crisp mouth feel, roasty light herbal character medium body, good malt spine, very drinkable.

Flavor profile: Front side dominated by roasted malts light cramel sweetness, mid palate the light coffee-cocoa-roast melonins mingle with the herbal hops...finish semi dry with mostly toasty sweet malts giving way to the herbal light buttering....bready afterteaste.

A very good dunkle although not a Munish dunkle this is more in the American style which tends to be a tad more hoppy and crisp than the Munish darks.

The heavier noble hopping is out of style guidelines but I like it as I’m a sucker for good fresh noble hop flavors.

One of the top 3 dunkels in Canada.

650ml bottle poured in a pint glass.

Hazy, light brown in colour. Dark, but still letting light through without being completely transparent. An off-white thin ring around the outside is all the head you get. Some sporadic lacing.

Aroma is malty sweet with undertones of dried fruit and corn syrup.

Taste is pretty much just sweet toasted malt throughout. There is a point in the finish where a brief bitterness appears, but it leaves as quickly as it comes.

Medium bodied with light carbonation.

This is an alright beer, but nothing to write home about. Seems a little one dimensional, but if you want a nice sweet malty beer, this one is for you.
