History & Style:

Among the most appropriately named styles of beer, the term “dunkel” is the German word for “dark.” Dunkel’s history stretches back to the Bavarian Purity Act of 1516, which decreed that brewers use only barley, hops and water in beer-making – clearing a path for the dunkel, which met both these standards and satisfied the palates of the people of Munich. This traditional Bavarian lager rose in prominence, with a legacy that remains to this day. Dunkel is luscious and toasty in flavour, yet with smooth lager crispness.

Tasting Notes:

Dunkel pours mahogany with a billowy white foam. The aroma offers mocha and bread crust notes. The flavour features deep malt impressions with hints of chocolate. This medium bodied dark lager has a clean finish.

Food Pairings:

Lollipop chicken legs with tandoori spice and seasoned basmati rice; marinated cheese and olives in spicy citrus oil with crusty bread; banana cream trifle; layers of buttery cookies soaked in coffee syrup, fresh cream and fresh bananas topped with crushed toasted pecans.
