Rather malty aroma with a descrete hoppines. Initially presents quite dry with a medium sweetness and a genlte bitterness left on the palate.

In aroma this is very heavy on the toffee and caramel, a good sign. The flavor is similar to the aroma with a good palate. Among the best dunkels out there.

Poured into a tall 0.5 liter glass stein. Copper to brown colored with two fingers of fluffy off-white head.
Rich smelling malt, pepper, barley and slight citrus.
Rich tasting also. Sweet and malty, a bit chewy, almost no carbonation, and a touch of bitter. At the end it has a watery taste where the dominate flavors quickly fall off.
Very enjoyable. Looks amazing and smelled and tasted great. Tough to beat.

Probably the best beer... No, it´s not. But it is a very, very good dark beer. Caramel and fruits. And also nice to look at with a big head. I should have bought some bottles back home.

Bottle. Closest to Bavarian dunkel that I have found in the USA. Everything that is from Germany or even the Bavaria region that I have found here in the States doesn’t compare to what I had in Germany. This is a very good example of a dunkel.

500ml bottle. Deep, thick burgundy-brown with a beige head. Fruity caramel aroma, very mellow and milkshake like. Medium bodied, with some light, watery chocolate tones. Nice and bready, very soft on the palate. Yeasty creaminess really rounds this beer out, and gives it more dimension. Love to have it fresh on tap.

500 ml bottle at Krah-Krah in Vienna. A beer than illustrates neatly the limitations to the term Dunkel. Near-black, heavily caramelled with a touch of black asphalt, but not too sweet. Bitterness virtually absence but a bit of hop aroma. A must-have in Austria.

Draft @ Hamburg Beer Festival: Dark, dark ruby brown. Simple choc and cara malts. Nice roasty toasty notes. Really tasty.
