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.

A legjobbfajtából való, télen melegít, nyáron hűsít. Tavasszal és ősszel csak oltja a szomjat és ellazít.

Medium brown pour with light tan head and lace. Aroma is light caramel malt, toffee, and breadiness. A touch of earthy hops. Flavor is semi sweet bready malt dominates with a touch of hoppiness on the finish. Meidum bodied with good carbonation. a touch of oxidation?

Brentv (369) - Portland, Oregon, USA - SEP 29, 2014
On tap at the ABV Public House. Pours a clear dark brown with a small off-white head and some moderate lacing on the glass. Smell is a fruity plum and toffee. Taste is plum and toffee, and a beautiful maltiness. Medium mouthfeel and a hint of hops balances nicely.

Missing Germany in the fall right about now. This one is a perfect example of the classic Munich dunkel lager. Dark and nutty, Clear brown with nice thick velvety head. Yummy stuff!

You want a great example of malt done right? Then look no further than this beer. Wonderful slightly buttery with caramel, toffee and a hint of salt. Rich in malt and absolutely fantastic. What is possibly this beer’s best characteristic is the very light undercurrent of coffee. Aromas are of buttered raisin toast, I don’t know how else to describe it but it is fantastic. Full bodied but not overly so, pleasant. Finish starts sweet but is not at all cloying. Then enters a nice light bitterness and slight crisp bite.Deep mahogany in color with a medium tan head that lasts. This is a great beer, one of the best I’ve had in a long time quite honestly. Gotta give it to those Germans sometimes being brilliant in the basics of brewing can lend a more superior product that those seeking the extremes of the craft just to chase down the next "imperial" thing. Great beer.

500ml bottle @ the 8th Shrewsbury Bottle Share, courtesy of blackhaddock down there. Pours dark amber with creamy off-white head. Very nice dunkel with good smooth malts and a nice subtle sweetness. A great example of the style.
