Paper Thin Walls

Munich Dunkel

A traditional Munich Dunkel complete with a rich dark brown color and a creamy beige lace. Soft lager yeast aromas and delicate sweet malt scents make way for big toasted malt flavors, light tastes of toffee, and a hint of smokiness. Despite it’s medium body and smooth mouthfeel, the finish is quite clean and somewhat bitter.

Origin Story

A traditional beer style created by Ryan Hale called, Paper Thin Walls, and is modeled after a German Munich Dunkel. Dunkel (German for "dark") is a darker lager, ranging from a deep red to brown in color, that originated in Bavaria as a traditional beer style from Munich. For centuries, Dunkels were the most popular style of the region and often get acknowledged as the world's first regulated beer style, as these were being brewed the most when the Reinheitsgebot (German Beer Purity Laws) was introduced in 1516. Although these beers are quite malt-forward with flavors of toffee, nuts, and toasted malt (typically dark Munich malt), they finish crisp and clean due to the use of lager yeast. The average alcohol strength for a Dunkel is at or below 5.5%, making them weaker than Dopplebocks, their dark Bavarian counterpart. Darker wheat beers will often be referred to as Dunkel Weizens, although the flavor differences between the two are very distinct. Ultimately loosing favor to the much lighter lagers, such as the Munich Helles and Czech Pilsner, Dunkels are still popular in the beer halls of Bavaria and experienced some small fame in other parts of the world during the 1800's as German immigrants settled in the United States and South America.
