This started as a Munich Style Dunkel which is a dark malty lager made in the Munich style, and then it fermented lower, dryer, and made a stronger beer than we anticipated. Plus it’s winter. Munich Winterbock is an amber/copper/brown colored lager made with lots of munich malt for a bready malt flavor. The nose hints at a touch of roast malt used with little to no hop aroma. The flavor is predominately malt but not sweet. This beer has a clean and crisp finish that makes you want to drink some more.

Draught at the pub 02/07/2009. Sweet chocolatey aroma. Smallish creamy head that leaves nice full lacing. Nearly opaque ruddy brown. Roasty sweet and slightly spicy and doughy with a nutty aftertaste. Dry. Not bad.

tmoreau (3695) - Lombard, Illinois, USA - JAN 25, 2009
Sampled at the brewpub bar. Poured an amber/brown color, with a foamy, off-white head, and nice, silky cling to the lace. The nose had some light roasted notes and a touch of cocoa. A soft touch of sweetness, and toast were detected and mellowed by a light hop dryness in the flavor, which continued to finish. Nice brew!

Tap at Flossmoor. This was pretty tasty stuff. Pours a nice, dark brown. Small foamy head. Nose has a touch of dark fruits, but mostly a chocolatey nose. Taste is great, Nice chocolate and caramel coming through, mostly chocolate. Pleasant bitterness that compliments and doesn’t take over. Very clean and imminently drinkable. Based on Cornfield’s rating, I think this changed a lot over the month since he had it. Fantastic.

MoDog (927) - Griffith, Indiana, USA - JAN 17, 2009
On tap at Flossmoor Station and served in an English pint glass. This beer poured a dark mahogany hue with a one-finger thick head of tan foam that quickly settled, leaving behind some light lacing. The aroma was rich with malts. Caramel, chocolate, raisin, and dark fruits were accompanied by a light whiff of noble hops. The flavor also included and abundance of rich caramel and a lasting note of chocolate, delicately balanced by a light herbal hop finish. The mouthfeel was medium-bodied and had moderate carbonation. I thought this turned out rather nice. Always nice to see these guys experiment with the occasional lager.

On tap at Flossmoor. Pours dark brown with a light brown head. Moderate carbonation. Aroma was of malt, sweet fruit, hops, and chocolate. Taste was of malt, chocolate, fruit, and spice. Had a very smoky breadiness underneath. Very thick, creamy mouthfeel. Not overly drinkable, but good.

On tap at the Maple Tree Inn 12/27/08 Clean, clear, deep mahogany pour with a thin brown head that disapated quickly. Pretty sweet malty nose with touches of roasted barley. The flavors were sweet dark-roasted malt, touches of chocolate, smoke, and a light herbal hop bite in the finish. Pretty substantial alcohol presence as it warms. I know where this beer started: I am, however, not sure what style this wound up being...but as it veered distinctly off-course in the fermenter, it wandered into some pretty interesting neighborhoods.

Draft at the brewpub. Dark chocolately brown under a thin brown head. Smell is a little hard to snare, but I catch notes of chocolate and other darker malts. Matt’s schwartzbier has already demonstrated his skill at mellowing out very dark roasts in a lager. So again, chocolate malt taste, but a lighter texture befitting a lager, and good peppery German hop traces. Slightest hint of wintergreen. Cozy, smooth drinking beer.
