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!

Bottled. Deep amber colour, not much head. Aroma is fruits, some caramel and grass. Flavour is caramel malts, hops, grass and some slight yeastyness. Wellbalanced and refreshing.

Sampled at The C’est What? Fall Festival of Beers. Nice dark brown colour with a small creamy head. Pleasant malty aroma. Good levels of malt in the taste, with a hint of herbs (?) and chocolate. Body was light, but pleasant. I didn’t expect too much here, but ended up surprised. Good beer.

on tap at C’est what beer festival, very similar to the normal King Dark, but a bit more bodied, and a tad more malty, all in all, a nice brew

UPDATED: MAY 23, 2007 From the fermentor at the brewery: A dunkel in the raw "zwickle dunkel"....best drinking there is...dark chestnut , murky with ruby high lights...billowing creamy mocha cap and lacing. Sweet cocoa and toasty malts and nuts in the aroma, chewy toasted malt and earthyness in the flavor with a woody-herbal decernment before the bready finish. Creamy mouthfeel Wonderful! This is how all beer should be served....and for those who have sampled this, and the filtered dark, you now know how much flavor is lost to the filter. I hope Phil sells the Pilsner and bocks unfiltered to select accounts as well.

First bike ride of the year...toured to Hamilton for a pint. Quaffed one of these at the judge because the Denison’s was out. Poured a red-copper color with a small head that laced out after about 3 min. Aromas of boiled grains and carmel with a slight wisp of hop. Started big up front with a malt wallop and then the carmel-toffee tastes came through in an oily body that finished very mildly with a lingering sweet malty taste. A nice draft brew...I’ll have another bill ;-) Updated 28/08/04.....tried the bottled version more carbonation, larger rocky tan head....same aromas and the taste was slightly different in the finish which seemed to be more hop pronounced this time around.
