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!

Raistlin (144) - London, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 19, 2011
Pours a dark amberish brown with a small tan head. The aroma is toffee and roasted caramalts underneath metalic Noble hops. Flavor is very nice, starts out almost sour with grainyness then some good sweet malt body kicks in, with a bitter hop bite in the finish. Grainy malty awesomeness. Minor mocha hint to it as well. Leaves the palate wanting more. Super-sessionable, this is an excellent beer.

Bottle, brought by Robbie from Kingston. Pours a dark brown with a dense vanilla head. Sweet dark caramel aroma, chocolate. Rich dark caramel flavour, some cocoa, roasted bitterness rounds out the finish. Good flavour density, enjoyable.

Bottle. Pours dark reddish brown with medium head that fades rather quickly. Faint taste of dark chocolate with barely any hop bite. Good.

jimmay (807) - Waterloo, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 8, 2010
341 ml bottle. Pours reddish brown in colour, nice frothy off-white heads, leaves lots of lacing. Not much aroma or taste, basic dark lager. Not bad, but not outstanding.

probstblueribbon (3062) - Nepean, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 16, 2010
341 ml bottle in a 6-pack from LCBO, served cold in a Scotch Irish taster glass.

App.: Deep clear mahogany with a so-so tan head. Aroma: Nutty dark malts, minimal fruitiness, slightly spicy with some stern brown sugar notes, dark bread crust, hints of caramel as it warms. Palate: Medium body, moderate to full effervescence. Flav.: Dark bready malts, nuttiness, some light molasses and some brown sugar notes, a little fruitier than the nose, a touch of licorice, quite nice; dry with a touch of bitterness and a mineral with slight malts finish.

Not mind-blowing, but competent.

Metalchopz (2404) - Cantley, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 3, 2010
Purchased in Toronto at a LCBO. Part 2 of 3 dark brown beer that are tested. This one pours a clear brown colour, and looks quite close to the Black Oak Nut Brown Ale I just had. The only difference is that the lacing is slightly thinner on this one and the retention does not last as long. The nose is of dark fruits, yeast and mild dark malts. Watery carbonated mouthfeel with very light stickiness. The taste is pretty mild, with some roasted malts and a light sweetness in the finish. Not a bad product, but just laking punchiness.

JesseM (1151) - Margaritaville, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 9, 2009
341mL bottle from a sixer I got at my Liccboh. Pours a dark amberish brown with a small tan head. The aroma is toffee and roasted caramalts underneath metalic Noble hops. Seems weird and off at first but gets better the more you sniff. Flavour is very nice, starts out almost sour with grainyness then some good sweet malt body kicks in, with a bitter hop bite in the finish. Grainy malty awesomeness. Minor mocha hint to it as well. Leaves the palate wanting more. Super-sessionable, this is an excellent beer, and I’m glad it’s finally available in my area.

Spab (2570) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 20, 2009
341 ml bottle from Beer Store. Pours a dark amber with small white head. Malty aroma with toffee and a light roastiness. Nice flavour with nuttiness, coffee, toffee and a pleasant, slightly bitter finish. The more I had of this, the more I liked it.
