COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Eastside Dark The rich, coffee-like aroma and flavor of this fine Dark Bavarian style lager beer is derived from a precise blending of three different specialty barley malts, chocolate, black patent, and Munich malt. Munich malt is also added to bring about the creamy body of this malty brew that has an original gravity of 1060. The most impressive aspect of this brew is the perfect balance between the specialty malts and coveted Mt. Hood hops. Unlike many other dark beers, East Side Dark doesn’t have the bitter aftertaste associated with it. Instead, your palate is greeted with the rich body and balanced flavor that only this beer can deliver.

bmerz (687) - Brooklyn, New York, USA - JUN 6, 2013
Pours deep amber. Fruit and caramel, lightly toasty malt aromas. Flavor of light earth, spice, light pine, and fruit. Fairly well balanced. Slick but fairly clean feel. Not bad at all!

csaso (1291) - Missouri, USA - MAY 20, 2013
Tap - average size foamy head, dark amber/brown color, roast malt aroma and flavor, with some coffee notes (but not overbearing for someone who doesn’t like coffee like me), pretty decent hop balance

jbruner (2135) - Athens, Georgia, USA - APR 17, 2013
UPDATED: APR 19, 2013 Pours a dark blackish red from the bottle with thin tab cap of lacy head that spots nicely. Aroma is toasted malt, marshmallow, lager yeast, and chocolate malt. Taste is roasted barley up front and yeast, then a heavy marshmallow and chocolate flavor on the back end. Much better than I was expecting for the score or has on here.

maybe the best offering in the mixed-six. Nice balance, rich maltiness and decently crisp hop bite.

georgekillian (344) - Alabama, USA - APR 6, 2013
A very rich and complex flavored dark beer. The pour is dark brown with no spotting and it has a clean coffee flavored finish with hints of malt and other caramel undertones. Very good dark
