On draught at Hofbräuhaus Las Vegas. Dark reddish brown color with a thick and rocky cream colored head. Thin lacing. The aroma is lightly roasty and malty. Medium-bodied and sweet with roasted malt and caramel flavoring. The finish is nutty and lingeringly sweet. A decent beer to accompany a bratwurst.

Draught Very stable yellow head, leaving lace, over chestnut-brown beer. Rainwater, dark autumn leaves, and a bit fruity - and of course very malty. Again leafy & malty; sweet, but nowhere exaggeratedly. Coloured malts, without roastedness. Ends a tad woody. Quite well-bodied, slick, near-syrupy. Much better than feared, to be honest.

My Bottom Line :
Potent Munich malt flavors oversee this Dunkel’s flavor profile where nondescript hop bitterness and fieldberry angles attempt to add depth.
Further Personal Perceptions :
-A sheet of foam tops the dark brown, leaving no lacing.
-Even though the body is rich, the brew remains quite drinkable.
-An earthy touch seems to come from the combination of specialty malts and bittering hops.
-If you don’t know what Munich malts taste like, this will be a good brew to learn from.
On tap at the tourist magnet.

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Best session beer of all time. IT is darker in color, but light in flavor, with just enough sweetness. The ultimate beer to session on a hot summer day.
