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!

Very dark red in colour. Strong malty scent. Slightly watery but still keeps a full bodied flavor. Goes through 3 different tastes in the mouth with a clean finish.

JohnBarleycorn (537) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 2, 2005
Fascinating crimson/brown with only a slight amount of see-through. Inviting aromas of chocolate and French vanilla coffee, rounded out by some floral hops. A very creamy, nice and round mouthfeel. Chocolate leads the flavour profile, but overall this is not as powerful and layered as expected. While it’s not up to the "Ultra Premium" boast on the label, King Dark certainly is quite enjoyable and well produced for a dark lager.

draught at C’est What. mahogany with a tiny off-white head. plum and raisin are evident in the aroma. slightly acidic, moderate carbonation. sweet malt flavour is prominent. meh, it’s decent but overall fairly mediocre and uninteresting. I’d much rather have their pilsner.

bottle from Mr_Kinchee; Dark amber with a beautiful tall tan head, but that fades quickly. Toasty nose, wonderful soft medium body, very, VERY smooth going down. Nutty and warming, with only small hints of sour lager yeast. Flavor is long and it finishes toasty and full of malty flavor. What an unexpected smooth treat!

Tessic (927) - Brantford, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 22, 2004
This lager pours a dark red colour with a off white head. The aroma includes some nice roasted malts with a sweetish, caramel scent. Maybe a little coffee. First sip is very roasty with a nice charred malt flavour. Starts out slightly sweet but by the finish the bitterness comes in. The taste is also slightly sweet with a very small amount of cocoa. The finish is slightly bitter but pretty good all in all

mustang3 (254) - Whitby, CANADA - AUG 18, 2004
A very enjoyable beer. Bottle poured a reddish copper with minimal head. The aroma is malty caramel. The flavour starts with carmael and brown sugar, but I can taste the hops underneath. Well balanced.

malty brown sugar aroma. Mid-sip hint of carmel and nuts and chocolate. Some toasting. Malt more than hops. Dry and sweet oil aftertaste.
