This classic dark lager is brewed in the tradition of Munich Dunkel lager
beers and is inspired by a Professor of German history who loves passionately the city of Munich. Much like the Professor himself, Munchner Dunkels are beers of great nuance and balance that display an unpretentious sophistication that only grows with age.
The Professor Munchner Dunkel is brewed with German Munich, Pilsner, Vienna, Carared and Melanoidan malts. The clean malty flavor is balanced sublimely with just the right touch of hop bitterness and punch. A quiet yeast-derived fruitiness lingers pleasingly in the background. If you enjoy this classic Munich dark brew with a plate of veal and German potatoes and close your eyes you may imagine yourself somehow transported to the Augustiner Brauhaus -- the Professor’s favorite Munich beer hall. Prost to the Professor!

Crisp, altbier-like toasty maltiness. Pale ale colour with no top. Tastes just like a good altbier. Medium to light body with moderate carbonation.

2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: MAY 23, 2007 Pours a nice caramel brown with a large light tan head. The aroma is hidding. Wood and some fruit, but really not much there. Medium body. Flavor is caramel, sweet malt, some smoke, and milk chocolate. Finishes with a bit more smokiness. Baird usually puts out really good beers but this one just doesn’t cut it. It’s not a bad beer but it’s just sorta there.

Med chestnut color, virtually no nose. Some cherry notes. Malty caramel and milk chocolate in mouth. Not as balanced as usual. Dry malty finish.
