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.

mile (2980) - 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.

glennmastrange (2253) - hobe sound, Florida, USA - MAY 1, 2012
Bottle. Light to moderate malt notes of roasted and caramel, light herbs and dough for the hops and yeast, with brown sugar and fig in the background. Head is small, fizzy, off-white with no lacing and is fully diminishing. Color is clear rusty brown. Flavor starts lightly sweet and acidic, then finishes lightly sweet and acidic and faintly bitter. Palate is on the lighter side of medium, watery yet smooth and has a lively carbonation. Nothing outstanding in this Dunkel, but it’s absolutely true to style and is very easy to drink.

Slight gushing. Pours dark ruby red with high, soapy, short-lasting head. Smell is dark fruits, roasted malts and chocolate. Starts sweetish malty with lots of caramel and some dark fruits (plum). Middle part has some chocolate malts, paired with roasted malts and some caramel. Goes into a sweet caramelly finish with some coffee and roasted malts.

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.

ElDesmadre (1548) - 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.
