Impression: Must admit that one of my main reasons for returning to the brewery in winter was to try this winter seasonal Dunkles. It was the only full pour beer I had this day and it matched up well with my Biergulasch. It came out looking a gorgeous dark mahogany. The head was creamy, almost resembling a stout. Though full-bodied, it was very soft and easy to drink. It wasn’t as dry as I would have liked and I’d have liked to taste a bit more hops in the mix too. That said, it was a great sessionable dark brew and I’d be happy to drink it again if I’m lucky enough to get back during its limited run some future winter.

Next beer or back to the beer list.
