Notes / Commercial Description:
An old friend of Bavaria, Munich Dunkels are smooth, rich and complex, but without being heady or heavy. They boast brilliant ruby hues from the large amounts of Munich malts used, and these malts also lend a fuller-bodied beer.
Bitterness is often moderate, with just enough to balance out any sweetness. Hop varieties used are German noble varieties, Tetnang and Hallertau. Lagered for five weeks and filtered bright. Prost!

This bottle was a left-over from the 2006 GABF judging and was provided to me as a reward for my volunteer efforts. Thanks a million to GABF and to Redrock Brewing for the opportunity.

Label on the bottle classifies this beer as category #26 (Euroean-Style Dark/Munchner Dunkel). Pours a storng 2 finger tan/tan-brown head over a crystal clear hazelnut brown liquid. The head showed a bit of cascading after the pour and, although most of the head settled quickly, the last bit hung like a thin and fine guiness head til the end. Well done.

Smells mild. Roast, and chocolate. A bit sour, but clean of esters. Tastes mild. Some wet malt sweet to tame a roasted grain. Prominent tettnanger hops lend a voice to the choir. Tame...not bold in any dimension. It would be easy for flaws to show through on such a delicate beer, but I find no glaring defects. Metallic aftertaste is the result of roasted grains, but they are mixed with chocolate in a saving grace. Finish is somewhat dry, which keeps the palette light and ready for more. I'm very impressed. Tempered, complex, and well balanced flavors with md body and modest carbonation. A bit too interesting to simply be classified as an easy drinking beer. Mouthfeel has a bit of silkiness that can be found in oatmeal stouts.
