I’ve long been a fan of Spaten Optimator, a Doppelbock. Last night I tried Spaten Dunkels. Where Optimator has fruity flavors reminiscent of red wine, Dunkels has a crisp malt flavor and nice, rounded dark lager aftertaste. I had it at Kegel’s Inn with Sauerbraten, roht Kohl, and kartoffel Klöße. It was excellent.
