Rich brown in color, this dunkel pours with a fluffy tan head that falls quickly to a thin cap but then shows good staying power. The malty core is at the forefront of the nose and mouth, with notes of lightly toasted brown bread, walnut skins and brown sugar all balanced by a soft, floral hop note that keeps the richness grounded. Smooth but robust, with full malt flavor and an approachable style. Hints of caramel, toast and soft hops grace the medium-length finish.
