This classic dark lager is pale to dark amber in color, is medium-bodied, is moderately strong, and is characterized by the complexities of the Munich malt used to make it.
The Munich Dunkel style can be thought of as a dark version of Munich Helles. Though this style is closely associated with Munich, Bavaria, there are also versions that are brewed in the Kulmbach region of Franconia. This region also has a tradition of dark lagers. These versions are brewed with a sllightly higher starting gravity and with a more intense flavor profile.
The Munich Dunkel style is also called Munchener which means 'Munich-style'. This is a classic Munich lager style that developed as a malt-accented beer in part because of the moderately carbonate water in the region.
