COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Unfiltriertes dunkles Lagerbier
Rein untergärige Bierhefe
Malzig, karamellartiger Geschmack mit leichten Röstaromen
Hauptgärung im offenen Gärbottich; Reifung in liegenden Lagertanks
Gebraut nach dem Rezept unseres Braumeisters und Biersommeliers Markus Lohner aus Truchtlaching
5,0% vol. alc, Stammwürze 11,9%

Maria (10176) - Thisted, DENMARK - JAN 15, 2013
It’s brown with a huge, creamy head. The aroma has notes of caramel, roasted malt, burnt sugar and a touch of syrup. The flavor has a moderate sweetness and notes of caramel, burnt sugar, roasted malt, a little dark syrup and licorice - a very nice dunkel.

lord_totenkopf (310) - Budapest, HUNGARY - NOV 8, 2012
Light brown, minimal head. Aroma is sweet: cookies, wheat, caramel. Taste is roasted, wheaty and malty. Biterness of hay, a bit roasted and bread. The main character is the sweetness which goes from roasted malt to hay. Very good dunkel.

Ins Glas ergießt sich ein dunkelbraunes Bier mit geringer aber schönen Schaumkrone. Geruch leicht röstmalzig, Karamell, minimal würzig. Geschmack angenehm röstmalzig, würzig, gering schokoladig.

TBone (13002) - Pori, FINLAND - AUG 15, 2012
Bottled 500ml (BZ, BB 10/2012)
Deep red-amber color, small beige head. Caramel, yeasty barnyardish notes ("fermentation gases"). Medium-bodied. Malty with chocolate/coffee and caramel, light grassy-woody hoppyness. Taste is pleasant, aroma slightly disturbing at first. Good dunkel anyway.

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.

jaghana (4168) - Strasbourg (Alsace), FRANCE - OCT 10, 2010
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.

glennmastrange (2331) - 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.

EithCubes (5090) - 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.
