Hopfen: Magnum, Saphir Malz: Münchner, Karamell-, Röstmalz Darkon is inspired by traditional recipes. Nothing but dark malts, are used to create the characteristically mild roasted aromas of bitter chocolate and toffee. Darkon besinnt sich auf die traditionelle Herstellung der Schwarzbiere und wird ausschließlich mit dunklen Malzen gebraut. Für milde Röstaromen wird ein Teil des Malzes im Trommelröstverfahren hergestellt.
