Default what would you call this

I just got the dunkel in the primary and it is bubbling away.

I have some left over items that I do not want to waste.

I wanted to do a dark ale that is not heavy on the roast flavor.

this is what I came up with.

the silly small quantities are just left over but still fresh so bear with me on that. I also wanted it to be a tad sweet.


what style could you lump it into?

Dark cellar ale sounds good to me.

It looks dark and sweet

Maybe an experimental old ale, or Scottish ale.

I was going to use an Old Ale strain of yeast but decided otherwise

I figured it was Old Ale style but was not sure.

Let's call it Dünkel Keller Ale since there's some German ingredients there, too!
