Notes / Commercial Description:
This is a traditional Munchener Dunkel (Dark Munich) style bier, fashioned after the original lagers of Europe before the advent of pale biers. Dunkels still enjoy great popularity in Bavaria and for good reason. Their nutty and toasty maltiness is neither too sweet nor overly roasty, making for a beer that is satisfying and very drinkable. The use of Munich malt as a base gives this beer its dark brown color and unique malty aroma and flavor. German hops give this beer a subtle earthy undertone with a clean finish. Monkey's Dunkel is a signature series of Cory Buenning, whose love for traditional styled lagers is very apparent in this brew. The alcohol content is 4.6%.

Brenda and I went to The Front Door Friday afternoon... this was the first beer that I had.. a freaking big mug of it.

Lite tan head.. lite walnut brew... very clear....

Nose is pretty traditional Munich Dark ... toasty ... dark bread... clean with no problems...

malty... deep toast... some background earthy hoppiness balances the malts nicely.. near perfect body ... the carbonation seems a tad high...

All the bones are here on this brew.... I wish the geeks would start appreciating good lagers... especially good dark lagers... This is certainly better than any and all continental bottles as it hasn't spent months on a boat and in warehouses ... and definitely on par with most any Micro dunkels ... very nice.
