500ml bottle. Pours a medium creamy white head. Colour is treacle black. Aroma of ginger and peat. Taste is spicy with some orange and gingerbread. Slight coffee aftertaste. Medium sweet and medium bitter. Carbonation is medium to heavy. An interesting take on the dunkelbier style, a very spicy, enjoyable beer.

Well it’s not my fave style, but here goes. A pretty dark ruby from a 500ml bottle of unknown age. Aroma of caramel and cassis and overripe berries. Flavor is sweet milky malts with just enough bitter to hold it down. Every sip is better than the last and the finish is smoother and more enjoyable than I would ever have expected. Wow! by the time I get half way through the bottle, I might go get another!

50 cl bottle. Puors dark brown with a reddish shine. Nice thick and cappuccino-like head, dense even if not really latsing.
Rich but not strong aroma: malty sweetness, honey and some caramel. Red ripen fruits and a roasty coffe background.
Medium body, roasted bitterness and sweet but less incisive than nose and than what I expected.
Maybe too low carbonation.
Nice example of this style considering I found it in a supermarket.

Didn’t make a huge impression on me. Beautiful, pillowy head and clear, dark brown body. Some fresh bread aroma with notes of light toffee. I get some lightly-browned toast and grass as well. Mouthfeel is neat--very slick. An easily approachable beer.

Dark ruby Dunkles beer. Low hop rate with plenty of malt. Drunk on a rainy weekend in Wien.

Pours a clear, deep brown with a yellowish-tan head that dissipates quickly, leaving little lacing. Lots of things going on in the aroma, especially as the beer warms a bit. Bready Munich malt, chocolate, molasses, nutty and a strong sweet smell.
Tatse: The first thing that comes to mind is that this is not a Munich Dunkel style. There’s some rye malt character there with a weaker hop profile, much like a Euro-style Dark Lager. Whether it fits the Munich Dunkel taste profile exactly or not, this is an awesome beer, in my opinion! Grainy, malty, bready flavors with hints of dark chocolate, caramel, brown sugar and ripe fruity flavors. Yummy! Medium bodied with a light-to-medium carbonation level, making it silky smooth. No alcohol warmth detected.
Overall, this was a great beer for a great price! I paid $2.39 for a single 500 ml bottle. I will definitely buy this one again.
