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.

This is an expertly brewed beer, shows what craftsmen the Germans are as they are restricted by the Reinheitsgebot. Nice thick head, dark reddish color, subtle malt sweetness, very smooth going down. If they could just break the law a wee, add a little bit more body, this would be near perfection.

Chronoflash (76) - New York, USA - JUL 3, 2010
Served in a tulip from the bottle. This one’s a very clear brown with ruby highlights and thick two inch slightly tan-tinted white head with fairly good persistence and little lacing. Immediate aroma is heavily dark chocolate, though this dissipates quickly as more toasty-sweet malt nose kicks in. A very light astringency lingers in the background, along with some of that chocolate. She’s very smooth on the palate, with no detectable hop flavor, and a medium bit of bitterness that’s most clear on the backend. Flavor is generally toast and chocolate, the bitterness mellowing out the sweetness and lingering a bit past the finish. Great brew.

theOptimator (272) - Sacramento, California, USA - AUG 27, 2010
Malty, prune, roasty aroma. Dark brown with a bit of orange. Crystal clear with a medium light tan head. Flavor is strong malty.... dark fruits, plum, raisin, prune..... chocolate and coffee, but not heavy. Even with all these normally strong flavors, this beer remains mellow and smooth, not heavy. You could easily enjoy this beer by the liter. Palate is medium body and crisp. Overall... this beer is marvelous. It defines the style as far as I am concerned. A must try.

Excellent dunkel! The aroma is dominated by caramel, some roasty and chocolate. Very little to no hops in aroma or in taste. Pours a clear clean brown with a medium head. taste is dominated by the malty caramel and chocolate. Overall a very good dunkel.

CanCrusher (512) - Ilirska Bistrica, SLOVENIA - JAN 12, 2014
Bottle 0,50L. Clear amber, ruby red colour with tiny, creamy, light brown head. Aroma of roasted malts, caramel, milk chocolate, mild coffee and cacao. Taste starts light sweet with the strong caramel malty backbone. Mouthfeel is smooth andsoft, taste gets light bitter at the end of the sip. Medium to full body, dry finish, slightly crispy. Very good balanced and drinkable.

Poured with light on color, dense frothy 2" head, bread aroma with some caramel notes. Smooth malt-forward taste with toasty Munich character predominant. Light-medium body, finishes clean. Very easy to drink and enjoyable. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Lovin’ the malts here. Toasty grains. Reminds me of a great breakfast cereal. Well done and recommended.
