Dark Beer is a Gosser

gosser20dark2012oz1I wish I knew how to type an umlaut on this keyboard.  Einegeweg, Gosser Dark, fresh from the keg, is deep brown with a tan-grey head.  The bouquet is an appetizing mixture of butterscotch and roasted malt, with a hint of dryness.  The richness of the malt makes for a nice texture, and it dominates the mildness of the hops, which makes its presence known in the dryness of the finish.  It’s in the finish that you get a nice whiff of alcohol.  Gosser Dark is above average in its complexity, but it’s not at all intimidating.  It is one of my favorite dark lagers.
