Brewed as a Munchen Dunkel, this style is considered the traditional beer of Munich and can be found in taverns throughout the city and region. Most beers brewed in this style can be described as having a toasted or chocolate flavor with low bitterness and little hop aroma. Each brewery, however, takes creative license in crafting their own beer by varying the color, malt, and hopping rate. The Harpoon Brewery is no exception.
A blend of specialty malts gives this beer a velvety mouthfeel with roasted notes and a hint of chocolate, balanced by a subtle hop aroma. Hard to describe but easy to drink, Harpoon Dark is rich in character and light on the palate.
The overall character is rich malt and chocolate balanced with a crisp hop bitterness.
