Notes/Commercial Description:
A blend of specialty malts gives this beer a velvety mouthfeel with roasted notes and a hint of chocolate, balanced by a subtle hop aroma. Hard to describe but easy to drink, Harpoon Dark is rich in character and light on the palate.

35 IBU

My fifth offering from Harpoon. One of the first dunkels I've tried as well. Rich brown color with a lighter tan head than I'd expect. Chocolatey mocha flavor. Deep body, rich like a porter. Soft mouthfeel, though a bit grainy. Burnt aroma, pretty nice.
