One of the nice things about re-reviewing a beer is that you mature and can appreciate some things more. (And admitting it in writing both purifies the soul and accelerates the learning experience.)

Capital Dark is a good dunkel. Right for the right session. (On a crummy day, I was waiting for the rain to stop so the Cubs could win the NLDS.) Like most dunkels, Capital Dark is better as it warms. I let this one warm.

I like Capital. They stick to their knitting in the German tradition and it shows in their quality. (I also was a student in Madison, before even home-brewing was legal!) Anyway... based on the BA reviews, they haven't brought this one out for three years. And they should release it more often as Capital Dark is, I'm guessing, one of the top 10 dunkels I've Had.
