Our Oak Aged Dunkel is brewed using traditional German ingredients and aged on American Oak. The brew itself is highlighted by Munich malt, Tettnang hops, and German Ale yeast, resulting in a clean, earthy flavor. After primary fermentation is complete, we transfer the beer to a secondary aging vessel containing oak infusion spirals. These oak spirals contribute subtle,woody sweetness and vanilla notes. The wood complements the malt character and adds a layer of complexity to the delicate, herbal hops. The result is a pleasing, drinkable autumn beer.
