COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Without a doubt the finest dark beer brewed in the United States. Styled after a traditional Munchener-Dunkel, Dark is a rich, delicious beer combined with excellent drinkability - a rare combination.

Crushed with Jakebra. Ugh. Boring. Lotsa maltiness. Id take Lakefront Eastside Dark over this poop any day. Some dirt, some sweetness, some thinness and some non-awesomeness.

Bottle in trade from milwaukeeclassic. Thanks! Pours a clear maroon pour with a quick fading beige head. Smell is sweet toasty bready tart malt. Taste is thin with some metal and pumpernickel like breadiness. Appropriate balancing bitterness, a touch sweet though overall, and lightly yeasty. A medium to thin body and a touch high carbonation. Drinkable, but average.

noncaloric (684) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 26, 2008
UPDATED: AUG 16, 2009 Pleasant aroma of apple cider and toffee. Pours a lovely deep clear red-brown with ongoing effervescence. A big tan head leaves a modest lace. Flavor explodes all over the range of sweet roasted malts: raisins, plums, roasted nuts, apple cider. Finishes with some fresh bread, noble hops, and lingering raisin sweetness. Creamy palate, nicely carbonated, very drinkable.

Strykzone (5077) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - AUG 22, 2008
Dark brown and amber color with a tan head. Aroma is not substantial but is well balanced with some nuts and caramel. Flavor offers roasted notes and dark fruit. The hop provides a nice depth to the flavor and acts as ying to the mat yang. Great balance. Dry bitterness. A very well crafted beer.

Rciesla (5499) - Exit 15W, New Jersey, USA - JUN 2, 2008
Bottle. Better served warmer. Pours a dark brown body with a 1 finger white head. Aroma is musky malt german hops and a sticky etoh. Flavor is smooth roasted malt, and german hops. A light malty flavor trails off. decent.

phishpond417 (2088) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - APR 24, 2008
Poured a dark brown colour with a medium sized tan head. Aroma is pleasent, touch of oak, over ripe fruit- apples and jerky? Dark roasted coffee beans, full creamy mouthfeel, well carbonated and a nice long finish.

Capital night at Three Cellars Milwukee. Rich malt taste and a dry finish with a hint of nuts and toffee. Was very smooth and quite refreshing. Not an over-powering beer
