Whistler Brewing Co. – Winter Dunkel Review
The Whistler Brewing Company’s Winter Dunkel is a limited edition beer that pours a chestnut-brown colour with a single finger of thick and frothy head. The aroma is more spiced than that of Jamaica Jerk Chicken. The smell is strong of Vanilla, chocolate and orange peel. In a blind smell test you may just think that this is a Terry’s Chocolate Orange. The flavour is lighter than you would expect and has a vanilla smoothness to it. The orange and chocolate notes are in full force here giving a very unique flavour profile. The chocolate in this Dunkel is 100% organic and is sourced locally at the Whistler Chocolate Company and the orange has a peel bitterness attached that contrasts the chocolate sweetness quite well. This is not a typical beer or even Dunkel but it is something that is new, unique and a change from the ordinary. Give it a try if you are ready to try something like no beer you have had before.
