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.

On tap at Pizzeria Piccola at the MKE airport. Pours brown with orange and reddish tines. Very little lacing. Aroma has chocolate with faint caramel/faint grape. Taste is of choco/caramel with dark fruits. Later nuttiness comes into play. It becomes more sour through the glass. A bit thin. Finishes sour and sweet, fairly short. It was interesting for a dunkel. It was overall not that interesting, though.

Dark nut brown colour, medium-sized beige head. Aroma is nutty with some caramel and ash. Light to medium-bodied. Toffee, toasted malts, chocolate or cocoa powder, nuttyness, grass. Quite Bavarian like but no need to brought it here. Better orginals available.
