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.

12oz bottle poured into a shaker. Pours dark brown with minimal head. Aroma of coffee, chocolate and caramel. Taste is light bitter. Coffee and dark chocolate. Light bodied with a somewhat thin texture. Soft carbonation and not much of a finish. Overall, its ok. Lakefront has much better beers than this.

At a tasting, thanks DSG, small stable creamy head, clear and a little deep brown colour with red hues, light coffee with some dried fruits, flavour of dark sour bread, wood and coffee. Fair and drinkable.

jrodooo5 (925) - Wilmington, Delaware, USA - MAR 6, 2013
Finally a nice brew from this 8 pack variety! The pour is a deep dark brown with a nice white head that leaves a ton of lacing. Aroma is light but gently draws you in which is perfect for the flavor. It’s roasty yet incredibly smooth! It has a very creamy mouthfeel and it is beautifully balanced. This is both sessionable and flavorful - quite nice!

OnWisconsin (132) - Wisconsin, USA - FEB 22, 2013
Poured a clear brown color with a minimal white head. Aroma hits you immediately with the typical lager smells followed by roasted malts and a hint of chocolate. On the Los you are hit caramel roasted malts and burnt toffee. Mouthfeel is light with a good amount of carbonation.

DSG (5632) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - FEB 7, 2013
Bottle. Beer of the month club. Transparent dark brown color with a beige head. Pleasant malty aroma, toasty and caramelly with light roasty notes. Pretty sweet flavor, malty and caramelly with some toasted bread, finishes slightly drier with a light roasty coffee notes. A well-made Dunkel, just a bit too sweet.

Ferris (2946) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 4, 2013
Bottle - Coffee as advertised, with a bit of sweetness. An almost opaque mahogany, with a minimal off white head. Rich texture with a roasted malt flavor, notes of coffee and hops and as advertised no bitterness in the finish. A decent beer, nothing exciting, but it is exactly as advertised.
