COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Dark chocolate in color, you can see a wonderful reflection if you hold it up to the light. It is round and soft with the warm, sweet aroma of freshly roasted malted barley. A satisfying, malty taste, with coffee-ish tones and a hint of plummy fruitiness in the finish. Complex and beautifully balanced.

Decent aroma. The beer has a reddish brown color to it with a lightly brown head. It has a decent taste to it, but not as favorable as I like.

jerama (49) - SLOVENIA - APR 26, 2016
Pours a sparkling reddish brown body with a tan disappearing head. Rich aroma of bread, wine, dried plumms, malt, with notes of caramel. Taste starts with plumms, later joined by dark bread, chocolate and caramel. A bit metallic. Finish bittersweet of dark bread. Medium body with a thin (a bit sticky) texture and lively carbonation. Pleasant to drink.

swillguzzler99 (185) - Peoria, Arizona, USA - MAR 22, 2016
From a half-litre bottle. Pours a medium brown. Light-medium carbonation with minimal head. Toffee biscuit nose. Wet mouth feel, a tad of more toffee, but mild. We Americans try to rip this off with our ambers. (my first true dunkel). Pleasant for lack of better word. a drinkin’ all day beer if I didn’t have to work tomorrow.

Ar- light toast, some caramel, toffee, no hop aroma Ap- dark reddish brown with a weak off white head Fl- more complex than the hofbrau, subtle malt sweetness up front, hint of caramel, dark fruits, toast Mouthfeel, med-light bodied, well carbonated, a touch viscous, nice finish Ov- while more nuanced than the hofbrau I like it slightly less. It good just doesn't really stand for anything. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

I drank this beer tonight in Ayinger. The appearance of this beer is a nice copper-orange-red color with an average foam and carbonation. The taste is dry with a nice note of caramel and malty. It is a good drink.

Pours a dark ruby color with medium off-white head. Nice smell of malts and caramel. Medium body with soft carbonation. Taste is mostly malts and caramel, notes of coffee in the aftertaste. Roasted, but only slightly. Overall, very good and nicely balanced beer.
