Logs for this venue

Possibly my favorite in a flight that was uniformly excellent. Light wood smoke opens, with a not-at-all-sour, subtly-chocolate porter finish. Chuckanut definitely seems to be expert at getting clean finishes in all of their beers, and this is one of the cleanest. Bought a squealer for work.
Notwithstanding "Chuckanut Schwarzbier" being the most suggestive phrase I've read in a while, this is a light, dark lager with forward coffee notes and a mellow, lactic finish. No tackiness from that, just cream (ugh, that sounds dirty again). A fantastic schwarzbier.
Doppel the bock in this flight! Nearly identical to the 2017, as one might expect, although it does have a sharper edge to it.
Molasses / gingerbread dark yeast flavors, light, cola like body and a luscious, smooth finish. Nothing pokes out in any way. It's not as profound or as fruity as something like an Aventinus, but it's definitely delicous.
