Description 

Winter's Night is our take on a Munich Dunkel, which has been a culture-defining style brewed for over five centuries. A traditional European dark lager that is characterized by a striking dark color and a strong malt flavor. It is complemented by an elusive light mouthfeel which offers a clean crisp finish. This style pairs well with a hearty meal on a cold winter night.

Winter's Night by Arches Brewing is being reviewed as a Munich Dunkel, judged as BJCP Category 8A.

This beer has low, sweet and malty aromas. On the one hand, it is not particularly aromatic, but on the other, it is appropriately clean. It pours deep brown in color with ruby highlights. It has a medium, off-white head. The flavor is malty, bready, and toasty--all indications that a large portion of Munich malt was used. There is only enough bitterness to keep this beer from being too malty, and so it is also lightly sweet. This beer is well carbonated and had a medium-full body. It's as smooth drinking as they come. Overall, Winter's Night is a no-frills but traditional example of a classic lager style.
