Time to catch up on some older reviews. Harpoon Munich Dark is brewed in the style of a Munich Dunkel, dark and flavorful without being too heavy. At 5.5% alcohol, it goes down pretty easy. Harpoon Brewery itself says:
Harpoon Munich Dark is a blend of dark malts that creates a deeper hue than some other beers brewed in this style. The grains which create a malty chocolate-like flavor also add a warm malty nose that mingles with the subtle hop aroma. This medium bodied beer is balanced quite well with a moderately bitter hop finish.
Appearance: Dark mahogany brown that looks deeply red when held to the light. Tan head like wood putty.
Smell: Roasted grains and a pungency that reminds me of fresh-cracked grains at the homebrew shop. A bit of coffee in the nose, too.
Taste: Nutty, roasted flavor that is dry without being astringent. Steely hops and a coffee-like character.
Mouthfeel: Shy of medium-bodied but very crisp and clean, like there’s a hard water element to it.
