Hütten Dunkel

Hütten Dunkel

Brewery: Hütten
Hütten (Warmensteinach)
Style: Dunkles

Color: dark chestnut

Head: off-white, creamy
Nose: roasty

Body: medium, soft

Palate: balanced, malty, roasty, underlying hops, dry
Finish: clean, dry, semi-bitter

Served: on tap at Hotel Restaurant Birgitte in Warmensteinach

Impression: This was the polar opposite pour-wise from their Helles which was quite fizzy. It was very soft and much drier as well. The nose was full of roast and that was the initial flavor but some dark chocolate peeked through as it warmed up. It’s quite dry in the semi-bitter finish, dangerously so at 5.2%. About two years later, I came across some bottled Hütten beers and the Dunkel was very much as remembered, and quite good.

Next beer or back to the beer list.
