Also had it at the Weißes Bräuhaus in Munich and it’s probably the best example of a Bavarian dunkel that I’ve had. The previous description was pretty good; nice color, dark but not opaque, with great roasted malt flavor. Great pairing with a Hax’l or other Bavarian specialty the sweetness sets off the salty meat perfectly. Dense, off-white medium head was also delicious. I’m not sure if it’s brewed by Schneider Weiße or not... but definitely worth stopping if you’re in Munich.

A very strong roasty chocolate malt aroma. This is pretty tasty, smooth and not so sweet. Goes down very easy.

Enjoyed a large glass of this at this old restaurant outside downtown Munich, which was just a splendid place to be. Dark reddish brown, off white head. Malty and spicy on the nose. Spicy flavor, more spicy and dry than a lot of Dunkels. Nice, expressive yeast. This was a good one, though I’m reviewing it from notes and I don’t remember as much as I would like.

On tap at Schneider Weisses Brauhaus as a guest tap.
Appearance : Clear deep amber with a medium creamy head. Nice lacing.
Aroma : Rich nose. Red fruits with hints of raisins. Loads of overripe fruits. Nice sweetness.
Taste : Loads of overripe fruits with hints of molasses and raisins. Sugary.
Overall Very good beer. nice nose, very drinkable. Loads of flavour but light and drinkable at the same time. Quaffable.

On tap, Schneider Weisses Brauhaus, Munich. I think it is a schwarzbier rather than a dunkel. Aroma of nuts, cereal, hay, bread. I could bite to it. Roasty malts and coffee notes, really complex, just a bit watery texture. Good one.

Draught at Schneider Weisses Brauhaus, Munich.
So I’m first to rate this really good dunkel. Nice reddish cooper coloured, medium sized off-white head that went away slowly. Pleasant roasted malt and toffee aroma, malty and light chocolate flavor with notes of spices and dried fruits in the finish. Lingering roasty aftertaste.

On tap in Munich. Auburn pour. Caramel, malt, spice, and nut aroma. Smooth and very malty flavour. Very easy drinking for such a dark, malty ale. Nice.

Pours brown with off white head. Lots of caramel and toffee, less of a chocolate note than a lot of dunkers but nice

Sampled last christmas in Munich. Very tasty appearence with a thick beige head over a chessnut colored beer. Not much aroma just a tuch of light roasted malts. The taste is light roasted with a good bitterness. Huge drinkabillity.
