COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
St. Stanís Dark is a dark colored (20.2 SRM), top fermented beer made in the Altbier style of Dusseldorf Germany, with low carbonation and a smooth, malty medium bitter taste. The color and rich full coffee/chocolate flavors are produced from blended caramel and chocolate roasted malts. The bittering hops are Fuggles and Bullion and the aromatic hops are Cascades.

Amber with a ruby tint. Smaller tan head. Carmelized malts dominate the nose. Fairly light in body, but smooth with a touch of carbonation zip. Touch of zest distracts form the malt. Too much bitterness for style.

This is an unusual twist on the alt style, IMHO. Itís an extremely roasty, chocolatey altbier thatís heavy on some nice malt and possesses solid hop balance. Very enjoyable.

This beer has dark roasty and doughy malt flavors balanced with a long and hearty bitterness. Iíd say the roast flavors more resemble charcoal than coffee or chocolate. This is a unique brew.

Very interesting twist on a Sweet Stout/Cream Stout style. First off, the color is the lightest for the syle Iíve seen. Second, the heavy malt AND hop aroma straight outta the bottle is a killer. Head dies immediately - quicker than my dogs eat their food. Seriously roasted bitterness. Thinner than I expected. Yet, under it all, good.

Tasting Notes from Fall 2000: Smoky, chocolatey. Good bitterness that works very well with its mild sweetness

My favorite. Good head, you can taste the chocolate hops. More for the bolder beer lovers
