Von Ebert Brewing Bohemian Dark Lager
What the brewers say
Continental dark lager with a rich mouthfeel and flavors of biscuit and chocolate-covered raisins.
What our panel thought
An inviting blend of roasted and chocolate malt with floral and minty hops creates a complex and interesting nose of chocolate, light coffee, and treacle and flavor sporting traces of raisin, pumpernickel, and toast. Some pleasant perfume-like hop bitterness balances things out. Finishes clean and crisp for an easy-drinking, medium-bodied beer.
What our editors thought
The curt, bready nose doesn’t show its cards, but the flavor opens up in the sip with chocolate-covered peanuts and a defined but rounded chocolate bitterness. Not quite as dry as some others, but that works in its favor.
