Notes / Commercial Description:
Winter has met its match in the form of this classic Munich-style dark lager. Smooth, with caramel and roasted malt flavors courtesy of Dark Munich and Carafa malts, Dunkel offers an easy-drinking finish to even the coldest, darkest days of winter. It may be freezing outside, but the conditions inside this bottle of Dunkel are always absolutely perfect. Enjoy it all winter long.

Clear amber color with a thick head of creamy froth. Aromas of grain, caramel, grapes, bready sweetness, crackers, and dough. Nutty grain flavor, brown bread, dough, fruit, and grassy hops. Easy-drinking medium-light body. I would love to see all the OMB beers east of Greensboro.

Clean, biscuity malts typical of OMB. Just not a favorite style of mine.
