Deep and dark colored, cloudy with yeast. Brewed with a darker roasted malt which adds some maltiness to the refreshing flavour of the Hefe-Weissbier.

May 29th, 2011 - That cheeky monk goes wherever good beer goes. He’s kind, affable, and accessible, even for the poorest beer drinker like me. There’s no reason not to pick up a whole line of the Franziskaner beers, then, and give yourself a week to take in a little German culture and art. I started my horizontal tasting with the Hefe-weissbier Dunkel, appealingly dark, but certain to have a refined elegance reserved for lighter beers. and lagers. It pours with a somewhat thick light brown head, and the body glows with a deep and dark-orange red color, like a dying ember. I can’t catch much aroma through the foam, so I dig a shaft through the bubbles and take a sip. It begins with a light core of chocolate, accented with clove and brown sugar, resembling a pumpkin beer without the vegetal notes. The body is medium, the flavor is good, clear and clean, and sports a lot of straightforward, no-nonsense palate pleasing that would go tremendously well with chicken or pork dishes. Why don’t I buy these beers more often?

Aromat: z butelki wędzony, lekko szynkowy banan, dalej trochę paloności i piwnica, ciekawie Wygląd: barwa brunatna, muliste, beżowa drobnobańkowa piana, opada do cienkiej warstwy na powierzchni, Smak: wyraźny banan na pierwszym planie, lekko wodniste, dalej mamy trochę paloności, ale dość subtelnej, finisz zdecydowanie drożdżowy, goryczka niska, ledwie wyczuwalna Podniebienie: średnie nagazowanie, brak pełni, średnie pijalność Podsumowanie: myślałem, że będzie lepiej, intrygujący aromat i w sumie tyle

Splendido colore ambrato scuro ma scarsissima schiuma che se ne va subito. Buon molto al palato, ma anche questo senza troppa persistenza. Dissetante, di basso grado alcolico, ma alla fine resta poco da ricordare

Light brown color. Aromas of rich bananas, cookies, and fresh baked dark bread. Sweetish, bready, banana, rich taste with some cutting acidity through the middle. Very good.

Boa Dunkel. Seguindo o padrão alemão é bem equilibrada. Mais para refrescante do que para saborosa

Raikas, hienosti vaahtoava kuparinen olut. Raikas ja maltainen. Hyvä kesäolut, jos kaipaa tummemman.

Murky brown pour with a decent off white head. Dried fruit, caramel, bready aromas. Taste is caramel, banana, a little spice, almost a cream soda flavour too. Little bit too sweet.

500ml bottle. Cloudy pastel brown in colour with a fine, pale yellow head. Aroma of haylage with smoked cinder toffee. The flavour is smooth, akin to that of banana, with a little cream and slight floral notes. Most enjoyable.

Poured from bottle at Brathaus dark opaque mahogany with minimal creamy head. Aroma earthy carmel. Palate fizzy with spicy enjoyable carbonation feel. Taste faintly sweet with no bitterness and long finish. One of my favorite German beers, favorite Weißbiers, favorite dark beers and all at just 5% ABV. Highly recommended.
