The great thing about Capital is that they're producing all of the styles of the top German imports, without the added flavor that comes with sitting in the hold of a ship for a month on the journey across the Atlantic. Munich Dark is no exception. If you're a fan of Becks Dark or other German dark lagers, I think you'll like Munich Dark as well. It doesn't have quite the sharp bitter flavor, definitely a bit smoother, but it does have a nice balanced coffee flavor in the background. This dark would be good year round, not just in the winter months.
