COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Meaning ’dark’ in German, Dunkels are smooth, malty lagers that range in color from amber to a dark reddish brown. Our Alley-oop Dunkel employs a large percentage of German Dark Munich malt, adding a mild toastiness reminiscent of bread crust. Malt really is the emphasis here, but Perle and Czech Saaz hops provide just enough bitterness and flavor to assist the malt. This "slam dunk" German dark lager comes to us just in time to issue in another installment of March Madness. Rock Chalk Jayhawk.

Indra (2594) - Overland Park, Kansas, USA - APR 13, 2011
Draft at the brewpub. Malty, lightly sweet aroma, some brown sugar sweetness and faint dark breadiness present, faint cocoa, even a touch of dark fruit in the background and hints of toffee. Clear medium red-brown color, the ivory head is fine and lasting. Malty, toasty flavor profile, more dusty cocoa, toffee, dark sweetness and, moving towards the finish, touches of spicy, mildly bitter hops. Semi-dry, clean and very smooth on the palate, relatively low in effervescence for a lager as well, body is medium. Mostly true to style, perhaps a bit on the hoppy side. That’s no complaint, though, and very Free State.

boto (1827) - Granby, Connecticut, USA - APR 2, 2011
Draught @ Brewpub: This one pours a clear coppery color. There was a foamy ecru head that left lots of lacing. Nice nose of mainly malts, some roastiness and a bit of nuttiness. The taste is very good. Very malty, yet very little sweetness. Some nuttiness and a very faint roastiness. Very smooth and easy drinking. Nice.

SirADNielsen (8949) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - MAR 20, 2011
On tap @ Free State. Brown/orange appearance with an off white head. Nutty, caramel malty nose. Very nice lively nutty brown lager. Well balanced with a tasty nutty aftertaste.
