ONIX Dunkel: from the makers of Ambar


Ambar, which is made the La Cervecería del Centro, is probably the most technically perfect beer made here in Costa Rica- for the same reason, and it being a marzenbier, it is not very outgoing or original. Not that I am saying that is a bad thing. 

At a recent visit to one of my favorite spots to drink, I was told they have a dunkel by the same crew. 

This one is bold for sure.  It says it comes in at 7.5% and it has the malt to back that up. Not bitter, yet toasted, not sweet yet full bodied and malty. It has a almost creamy mouthfeel to it which is cut by a nice level of carbonation. This is a good beer. 

Now, could I drink this all night?; no. Will I order this again?; definitely. 

Once again a technical success that appears to be pushing the limits a little bit more than I expected.
