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.

DuffMan (8198) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, - JAN 12, 2013
Bottle. Medium dark brown with orange highlights nd a thin tan head that reduces to a patena of whispy bubbles. Aroma is tinny caramel, not appealing at all. Flavours are sweet fruity caramel with mild biterness in the finish. Too carbonated.

Malty but thin with a bit of chocolate and some coffee. Dunkel that doesn't do too much to differentiate.

ARH (911) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - DEC 25, 2014
12oz bottle poured into a shaker. The aroma is toasted bread and yeast with a light roasted coffee note and some cola late. It pours a dark, clear oily caramel color topped by an off white, beige foam head and it retains a medium ring with a light wisp surface and no lace. The taste is a medium sweet and bitter blend. The medium light body has a fuzzy carbonation and an oily texture. Figgy and roasty coffee flavors come through with a light toffee flavor late. It’s clean and crisp with a mineral water finish and has a nutty and roasted aftertaste.

MaltOne (282) - Wisconsin, USA - DEC 24, 2014
Pours clear mahogany. Off white fizzy head. Slight roasted malt aroma. Flavor is medium dark roasted malt. Starts slightly sweet but has a drier finish. Palate is medium light; the effervescence is again s feature - it effects the overall palate. Overall, a nice dark session beer, light on hops. Lager.
