Name – Spaten Dunkel
Country – Germany
Type – Munich Dunkel Lager
Appearance – Poured a very dark red that borders on brown with a tan head that was gone pretty quickly.
Smell – Toasted malts, caramel and little bready but all were pretty subtle.
Taste – The taste is not very robust either but you can pick up some caramel, malts and what was like toasted bread.
This one has been rather new to the shelves of the beer store lately and after sometime looking at it I decided to grab it. Their Oktoberfest is probably my favorite marzen and Optimator is very good too. But I found this one was just not as robust as the others with their style. It was very easy to drink but the flavors and aromas didn’t just jump out at you.
Overall Grade – C
