Brewery: Held-Brau
Town:
Oberailsfeld
Style: Dunkles
Color:
dark brown
Head: dense tan

Nose:
malty but a hint of hops
Body:
full-bodied, low carbonation
Palate:
a big malty flavor, some chocolate
Finish: clean, dry
Served:
on tap at the brewery

Impression: Another case of high expectations not being quite met but that’s more my fault in this case than perhaps the beer’s.  Expecting a more typical dry fruity brew, this is more a true Dunkles more common in Munich. In this case, it was a very nice example of the style, with a rich malty flavor nicely mixed with a bit of chocolate. The finish was surprisingly dry and made one want to linger to drink more.

Next beer or back to the beer list.
