COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A bottom-fermented dark beer speciality, which is manufactured in traditional Bavarian brewing procedure.

Bier von königlicher Hoheit.
Mit bestem dunklen Gesternmalz und feinherbem Aromahopfen gebraut. Feinwürzig-malzig und typisch dunkel. Seine Königliche Hoheit, Prinz Luitpold von Bayern, achtet persönlich auf die hohe Qualität dieses Bieres. So ist es Familientradition. Denn schon das Reinheitsgebot von 1516 verdanken wir den Wittelsbacher Wilhelm IV. Ausgesuchte Rohstoffe aus dem Süden Deutschlands, ein spezielles Sudverfahren und die hohe Vergärung machen dieses Bier so süffig. 12°

PapaVillum (468) - Valby, DENMARK - JUN 4, 2014
0,5 l, flaske, 5,1 % ABV, 50 års-gave fra Gabriel, Anastasia og Thomas - tak! 4. juni 2014. Klar/filtreret sort/brun Dunkel med cognac-farvede nuancer og en lille flygtig skumkrone på 1 1/2 cm, offwhite-farvet. Aroma af brændt malt(e), lidt chokolade. Udmærket smag, omend knap så fyldig. Til gengæld læskende. Smagen er bitter/sød, med dominans på førstnævnte. Og tør i afslutningen. Får associationer henad noget Brown Ale. Tørstslukker med en tand mere smag. Kuldioxid: medium niveau.

jmgreenuk (4612) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - MAY 26, 2014
Bottle at the Brussels Beer Cafe, Kuala Lumpur. Poured a clear medium amber with a big frothy white head and lots of broken lace. The aroma is malt, burnt treacle. The flavour is light to moderate bitter, light sweet with a light malt, toffee caramel palate and a light sweet bitter finish. Medium bodied with soft carbonation. A bit of a shock up front but quickly began to accept it. I can’t say I like it that much but I don’t dislike it either.

Chopper925 (158) - Gross Gerau, GERMANY - MAY 20, 2014
Bottle. Clear dark-brown colour, small white head. Aroma is a bit chocolate and metallic hop. Taste sweet, with a nice bitterness, short finish with a few roasty aromas. Carbonation is fizzy, a bit too much, mouth feel more watery. Few roast and typical dark beer aromas, strange metallic astringent aftertaste. No Schwarzbier of my taste.

DrSilverworm (6575) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - APR 21, 2014
500ml bottle. Date on back reads 300714 F. Poured into my hefe glass. Almost entirely hazy amber brown color. Bigger 2-finger off-white head. Leaves good, thicker splotches of lace. Medium body. Nice, smooth, kind of creamy texture. Lightly dry finish. Nice lightly soft lighter carbonation. Great milk chocolate flavor, light nuttiness, hints of banana. Moderate sweet taste, very light bitter. Very light spiciness. Pretty tasty, easy-drinking, great dunkelweizen. Better than expected. Great one to enjoy with my sandwich.
