wkalle (263) - SWEDEN - SEP 30, 2009
Pours dark brown with large light beige nicely lacing head. Dark caramel and raisins in aroma. Flavor of caramel but the flavor is much less intense compared to the aroma. Watery body with stingy carbonation in mouthfeel.

iep (230) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - NOV 18, 2007
A really enjoyable dunkel, malty and fruity, with toasted malt and some crisp sourness on the nose, and a long bready finish with caramel and liqourice. Simple but very effective. I could drink this by the liter!

Gutifa (135) - Bad Wurzach, GERMANY - MAR 6, 2013
Dark brown with a good tanned head. Roasted malts a cocoa in nose. Dark malts,chocolate and little hoppy in mouth. Good beer but not really a Kellerbier like it says in the label.

jann3 (96) - Espoo, FINLAND - JUN 28, 2014
Pours dark reddish brown with a big beige head. Aroma is sweetish with notes of slightly roasted malts. Taste is sweetish too with notes of malts, caramel and a hint of coffee. Very mild hoppy notes in the background. High CO2. A decent brew but slightly too sweet for me. (0,5 l bottle, best before 15 Nov 2014).

Boekanier (57) - NETHERLANDS - JUL 27, 2013
Pours a clear brown/reddish beer. The foam unfortunately dissappears quite quickly. The best aspect of this beer is its aroma: a really good malty character. The taste is a bit disappointing and pales to insignificance compared to the aroma. The aftertaste is nice though and contains a sweetish bitterness.

Bought on Biershop-Bayern’s Website: Fürst Wallerstein’s Landsknecht-Bier, which they call a Dunkles Kellerbier. Previously, I had their Winterböckle, and loved it. Thus, my expectations are really high. On the back, it says, "Bayern in year 1598. The Fürstbrauhaus [Prince’s brew house] Oettingen-Wallerstein exercises for the first time his rights of brewing. That was the birth hour of a princely beer-enjoyment." Notice the best buy date is Dec. 10, 2013, 10:34 am. (Today is Dec. 27, 2012) The color is dark amber, brown with hints of red but still a very bright beer. The aroma is pure malt, heady Müchner and Melanoiden, bready malt aromas as if it the malts were being boiled in the glass! No hints of hops at all in the aroma. I could stop now and the strength of this aroma might be enough to satisfy, but my mouth is beginning to anticipate it’s time for enjoyment, and let’s go. mmmm... kinda disappointment all over the tongue. It’s a flat, thin taste, though don’t get me wrong, the beer is well carbonated and still has a mini white head after 5 minutes after the pour. The taste doesn’t deliver on the same malt flavor that was promised in the aroma. No München malt taste, though it’s still malty, it’s got a slight acidic flavor. Now, I’ve had a homebrew that was skunked with a lactobacillus (lactic acid) infection, and this is not at all similar, but still, it’s like a roasted bitterness, as if they used black malts that were not de-bittered. There’s some noble hops bitterness involved, too, but overall, it’s not in a good way. The aftertaste has light licorice to it, and I can’t really decide if it’s a beer that works better with sweet or salty food. Hold on, while I rummage through the kitchen to figure this conundrum out. With Leberkäs: yuck. With leftover Christmas cookies that looked similar to this, yum! I still can’t decide if I like this beer or not. The aroma is out-of-this-world wonderful, but the flavor neither matches nor has other things going for it. Overall, it’s a thin, slightly sour and bitter flavor with highly roasted malts in the forefront of the taste. Maybe it would taste better on a warm day, sweat pouring and the beer colder than I drink it, which is about 60 - 65F. I would also not label this beer süffig (quaffable/easy-drinker).

Fliptop bottle poured into glass. Nice head and good retention. Caramel, bread, toast flavor and aroma. Medium carbonation. Light chocolate and nut. Very solid dunkel
