Spaten Munchen Dunkel

From the Spaten Brewery in Munich, Germany. 

This beer pours a medium brown and reddish in color.  There is a small head of off-white foam.  The aroma is malted grain, roasted malt, a touch of caramel and nuttiness.  It has the aroma of a German lager, just more roasted malt, not surprisingly as it is a dunkel (Dunkel means "dark" in German, and is a dark lager that is more malt forward in its flavor profile).  The taste is roasted, toasted and nutty malt, touch of caramel, and just enough bitterness so as not to finish sweet, but rather crisply dry.  A very sessionable beer.
