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!

One of the best beers I’ve had in a long time. Many trips will be made to King City (well actually Nobleton) to pick this gem up. Nice dark colour, opens with bitter coffee notes but finishes in a well balanced symphony of sweetnees! Nice caramel flavourings as well. Really nice!

Draft. Dark brown pour with a medium head. Weak aroma of caramel, toffee, maybe a hint of roast. Taste is more full with some nut and chocolate notes. Medium body, lower carbonation, easy to drink.

Draft - Toffee and burnt toast. Deep jet brown with a beige head. Lots of toffee and toasted grains. Easy drinking but robust.

ILduce (208) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 7, 2013
Bottle from holiday pack @LCBO: Brown beer with tan head. Week aromas of toasted malt. Taste is same with a dash of chcolate hazelnut spread. Thin on the palate with a most curious, unpleasant aftertaste.

After work pour with Janice pours coca cola dark with nary a cap to be found. Aroma is shocking: flat cola? Is that possible? Janice says its "sweet but tasteless" and Steven says "it can’t decide what it is" and I say they are both correct.

Nice roasty malt with a nutty taste. Well done dark lager. Reminds me of some of the better beers from the early days of the microbrewery movement.

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.
