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°

mrjez (86) - Osaka, JAPAN - AUG 23, 2015
500ml bottle. L: pours a dark cola with some amber hues, fizzy head that comes and goes with swirls. S: smells like a porter, with a strong roasted malt, some chocolate, and slight caramel sweetness and vanilla. T: less like a porter more like a schwarz. Strong malt presence, sweetness balanced with lager hop qualities. F: plenty of spritz up front, a nice lingering malt, but light bodied and refreshing. O: great Dunkel, assertive malt flavour, and nice balanced body.
