Review: Atwater Dunkel

Maker: Atwater Block Brewery, Detroit, Michigan

Style: Dark Lager

ABV: 5.2%

Appearance: Big persistant foamy head. Dark coffee brown.

Nose: Malt, fresh roasted coffee.

On the palate: more coffee, quite dry and bitter.
Finish: coffee coffee coffee, French roast to be specific.

Parting words: My take on this beer seemed to change every time I drank it. I can’t quite pin it down. This last time, I didn’t care too much for it, frankly. It is too far on the roasty toasty side of things. Almost burnt. If I had written this review a few months ago, this may have been more positive. Right, now, I cannot recommend Atwater Dunkel. It is unbalanced.
