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.

Dark with a thin head. Looks like a thin porter, but this dunkel hits you with a combination of malts that works well together. Nothing super special here, but it delivers what it says it does.

Head peeks, goes bye-bye. Smells like clean plastic diaper, mouthfeel blasting right into an unrelenting supersour battery-chemical burn on the finish--no middle ground, no mercy. Down the drain, you go! Do I have a bad batch here?

Bottle. Thanks to joeybgood for this one! Pours brown with a small tan head. Nose is malty, with light coffee and spice (hint of cinnamon), and watery cocoa. Taste is semi-sweet with more maltiness, light caramel, more spice, and light bitterness. Body has medium carbonation, and light creaminess and bitterness. Finish is light coffee, sweet, dark malts and light spice.

WOW~!!!!!~???????
I am very surprised to see that this beer has such high ratings, I thought it sucked Donkey Balls! Amber brown body, small whispy tan head. An aroma and flavor of lemon, apple, caramel and toffee. Some toasty, bready malts but the body was thin and there just wasn’t anything even remotely exciting going on here, IMO! I was like a watery brown ale with a lemony bite in the finish.

Nice coffee/malt aroma. Complex chocolate, coffee, caramel, malt and toffee flavor. Creamy taste with light carbonation.

crazyvin (2026) - New York, USA - JAN 22, 2005
a light chocolate presence in both aroma and flavor. A smooth feel over all very easy to drink. It wasn’t really watered down, but seemed that way becasue of its smoothness. Brown in color not much of an off white head. nice.

VTHopHead (1511) - Barre, Vermont, USA - JAN 16, 2005
Bottle - Pours a dark reddish brown in color with very little carbonation or head. Aroma is not strong, but offers hints of malt and coffee. Flavor is malty and sweet, but has a "tang" to it. Hops are not evident in either the aroma or flavor. Finish is clean wih the same malty sweetness. An interesting beer, but nothing too remarkable about it.

Nuffield (3805) - Roseville, Minnesota, USA - JAN 15, 2005
Very simple beer--malty, with a bit of chocolate and caramel popping through in moments of the aroma and flavor. Clinging head on a clear brown body. Normal, unremarkable palate. Plain and simple beer, though not unsatisfying.

PattyBoy (302) - North Liberty, Iowa, USA - JAN 7, 2005
Pours dark reddish brown with a nice head. I didn’t think much of the aroma, kind of like moldy gym socks soaking in coffee. Fortunately the flavor was better. Flavor is roasted coffed, with hints of chocolate and a little fruitiness. The hop character is barely noticeable and I would have liked to have seen more.

Cletus (6355) - Connecticut, USA - JAN 4, 2005
Pours a dark amber. Strong coffee aroma with sweet malty undertones. Small head, moderate carbonation. Flavor slightly tangy, one of the better dunkels I’ve had.
