Leinenkugel's Bavarian Dunkel

Leinenkugel's Brewing Company is from  Chippewa Falls, Wisconsin.  They began brewing in 1867. Leinenkugel's has been owned by Miller for some time now. This is their 5.5% ABV dunkel, or German "dark" beer, a seasonal release.

The beer pours a very dark brown, dark ruby, nearing black. There is a short-lived head of light tan. The aroma is dark roasted malts, with light char, nearing light coffee or mocha. The taste follows the aromas, very dark roasted malts, char, with a bit of a tang on the end. The finish is quite dry with light bitterness. The beer drinks easy, but with full flavors.
