COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Authentic Munich Dunkel Style Lager 4.8% alc./vol. King Brewery's newest addition is this authentic Munich-style Dark Lager. Using only the finest imported Dark Munich Malt and Noble German Hops, combined with brewing in our authentic German decoction brewhouse, gives this beer King's trademark "true to style" aroma and flavour. This delicious beer is red-brown in colour, with a thick tan coloured head. The palate is rich and full, delivering a clean bready taste with a hint of toasted chocolate, while sporting elegant lace lines to the bottom of your glass. This unique Dark Lager is complex yet clean. Enjoy it with all European continental style foods and cheeses, or just as a well deserved cold one. Extremely flavourful, balanced and deliciously refreshing, our Dark Lager has to be tasted to be appreciated!

Poured dark brown, slight reddish tinge with small thin tan head. Almost fruity aroma and sweet malts. Taste was much more roasted malts with a bit of coffee like bitterness. Quite nice.

Barley a finger of head that last for like mabye a one min. Red to light and light ambery red away,more red to light. Smell is like some light cherry(sweetness?),chocolate and light hop. Taste not much to it some of what i think is like a cherry(sweetness?)lightly,a lightly hop taste and some sips have like a lightly chocolate taste. Taste nothing like a lager & not much going to it so whatever. Bye

Dark brown pour with a tight tan head. The nose is lovely. Fresh toasted malt, a little bit of cocoa and brown bread. Fresh clean malt with just a touch of yeasty aroma. It's nothing fancy, but it's a top notch dunkel. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

HeistAlmighty (1127) - Saint John, New Brunswick, CANADA - JAN 24, 2012
341ml bottle. Pours a dark reddish brown with a tan head. Nose is chocolate, some dark fruit and a little booze. Taste is roasty malt, with kind of a rye bread yeastiness and some woodsy smoke. A little chocolate bitterness on the finish. Dry finish, but the body was a little light. Overall, this was a rather enjoyable dark lager.

The best of the King three kings pack. Pours a dark brown with a small brown top. Aroma is mostly roasted malts with a small hint of hop. Taste is a little smokey, a little roasty with a small hop bite. Solid beer but fairly pedestrian.
