Longwood Brewery – Steam Punk Dunkel Review

The Longwood Brewery has recently started canning their beers in tall 568ml cans and one of the early beers to be released in this format is the Steam Punk Dunkel. This Dunkel is a dark chestnut brown colour that pours with two fingers of lacing head. The beer smells of caramel, chocolate, coffee and toasted malt with a slight hop-bitterness to boot. The taste is darker than the average dunkel with chocolate and coffee tones taking charge right from the get-go. Starting off light and building through the flavour portfolio this builds into a mid-sweet body and leads into toasted malt and caramel notes that hide just beneath the surface flavours. The finish is a combination of coffee, a touch of chocolate and some hop tones. The sweetness balances the bitterness well and never comes across as being over-the-top. This is a great Dunkel that pushes the flavour expectations just enough to be remarkable and memorable.
