Munich Type Dark

Thanks to Joe Wietlispach for giving me this beer. Tasted Wednesday night while watching Chapelle's Show on the projector and enjoying cheese and crackers.

Appearance: Dark brown, while still maintaining some element of clarity. The head is cream colored beige with a sporadic consistency of soap bubbles, film and dense foam. Lacing is speckled and wet as it drapes down the sides of the glass.
Aroma: Toasted and chocolate are very prominent features of the smell combined with a brief nuttiness and even a dash of roasty bitterness at the end. Authentic milk chocolate scent.
Taste: The sweetness is well accentuated in the form of rich chocolate and biscuity malted barley. Toasted grain are an equally present component to the overall flavor profile. Well balanced with a finishing bitterness that leaves the impression of dark chocolate, yet maintaining a refreshing characteristic of a European lager bier. Some presence of a more mineral-water, but only to the extent to encourage a positive flavor experience.
Mouthfeel: Higher carbonation from what I was expecting, however it leaves a creamy after texture on the palate, furthering the unexpected crisp feel. Body is on the abnormally lighter side, while displaying a tacky feel on the lips.
Overall Impression: A huge malt forward brew, that is nothing short of delicious! the toasted malt and chocolate malt bill is especially enticing!

Tim: 89/100
