Bis zum 2. Weltkrieg war das dunkle Bier der vorherrschende Biertyp im Münchner Raum. Besonders das harte Wasser der Region hat diese Besonderheit hervorgebracht. Spezielle, dunkle Röstmalze sind die Grundlage für die bernstein-dunkle Farbe. Der ausgeprägt malzig, leicht süßliche, karamellartige Geschmack endet mit einem an Kaffee erinnernden Abgang.
Das Truchtlinger Dunkel ist der perfekte Begleiter zu Schweinsbraten, Schweinshaxen und allen Wildgerichten.

EithCubes (5619) - New Jersey, USA - MAY 28, 2012
Slender swing-top by 20.10.2012. Nose is a little stale, earth toffee and faint roast, faint fruit. Ruby body is dark with a slight haze, loud tan head. Maltiness comes out much better in the mouth, with a very pretty swash of nuttiness, light mocha leaning toward wood, with restrained but succulent fruit. Only lightly sweet, touch of hop oil and even tang under that, but not bitter. Smooth full body is just right. I venture to call it elegant.

Bottle from quack-duck. A brown ale with good creamy head. This beer has good caramel and toasted notes, even small chocolate ones, it is near a schwartzbier. Good and creamy with a nice hopy finish, interesting.

Miksu (5047) - Jyväskylä, FINLAND - SEP 14, 2010
0.5 l bottle, thanks Timo A! Slightly hazy reddish color. The aroma of sweet wort with licorice, dark fruits and sourish rye bread. Worty taste with toffee, nuts and rye bread. Full bodied.

Marko (4953) - Split / Zagreb, CROATIA - JUN 3, 2012
The last beer I’ve had at the F-Fest. Porued a misty dark amberred body. Correct sweet malty nose. Sweet, balanced grainy dunkel sporting some notes that get close to dogfood, but not exactly. Not the best beer of the festival.

Thank you, Julia Dubowy, for bringing this back from Germany. Hazy dark ruby amber with an ivory head that has good retention, swirls of lace that run back into the glass. Aroma is understated. Taste is toasted caramel malt that grows through the palate until it is pushed aside by carbonation fizz and light bittering. Malt re-emerges at the finish. Not a big deal, but quite drinkable., and enjoyable with a spicy meal.

mile (3811) - Helsinki, FINLAND - OCT 22, 2012
Bottle. Dark brown, average and mostly diminishing light brown head. Moderate malty and sweetish aroma, light caramel and some roasted malt, light bread and light herbal hoppyness. Medium, malty and lightly sweetish flavor, light caramel and some roasted malt, light bread and light herbal hoppyness. Finish is average, malty and lightly sweetish, light caramel and some roasted malt and light bread, light herbal hoppyness. OK hoppyness is wasted on dunkel.

JanLaursen (3227) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - DEC 3, 2012
Bottle, 50 cl. Clear reddish amber with a small bubbly head. Strange almost sweet trashbin odeours. Sweet malty, watery texture, toasty, very subdued bitter finish. Light bodied.

ElDesmadre (3078) - Mikołów, POLAND - APR 29, 2013
Bottle traded with Quack-Duck. Rather typical dunkel aroma. Caramel, dark bread, somenotes of raisins and chocolate, very shy roasted hints. The taste is unexpectedly dry, tart, with a light body and a rather strong bitterness. Flavourwise this is chocolate upfront with some roast in the finish. Refreshing but I’d prefer it more chewy.
