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°

Dark crimson beer with a foamy nice head, just goes away too fast. Aroma of dark roasted malts, hint of coffee and chocolate. Metallic notes. Medium carbonation, quite light mouthfeel. A bit watery feeling, same with the taste. Malts, dark chocolate, a bit metallic taste. This is an okay beer but somehow a bit too much on the light side.

500cc bottle. Typical dunkel appearance on the light coloured side. Sweet and caramel with some yeast aroma. The finish is kind of unpleasant bitterness for the style.

Pretty straight-forward dunkel. A little roasty, a little sweet. Nothing in the way of complexity.

Moravius (722) - Berlin, GERMANY - MAR 1, 2015
Flasche (50 cl) von Getränke-Hoffmann, Berlin. - Tiefes Rotbraun mit rubinroter Tönung, klar. - In der Nase sehr mildes dunkles Malz, Karamel, Schokolade, dazu schwache fruchtig-hefige Noten. - Antrunk schlank, mild fruchtig und angenehm herb dunkelmalzig. Die fruchtige Malzsüße ist prominent (erinnert an Traubenzucker), aber durch schöne herbe Kaffeenoten ausbalanciert. Durchschnittlich rezent. Im Abgang mäßig röstmalzbitter und nur schwach hopfenherb. Eine gewisse matte Dumpfheit verrät den Hopfenextrakt. - Ordentliches Dunkles, das mit etwas weniger fruchtiger Süße und etwas mehr Hopfen noch besser wäre. Eine Dreistigkeit ist es, daß das Etikett von „feinherbem Aromahopfen“ schwärmt, während das Kleingedruckte verrät, daß hier ausschließlich Hopfenextrakt verbraut wurde ...

Colore marrone con forti riflessi rossi, schiuma abbastanza persistente. Dunkel buona, leggera e consistenza acquosa, frizzantina. Sentori di legno accennati.

Sweet and molasses with a dollup of sugar. Not bad but a bit too sweet for my tastes. Fast disappearing head.

loco_gallego (217) - SWITZERLAND - FEB 15, 2015
En pression. Brune bien foncée, reflets rouges. Mousse beige assez persistante. Au nez toastage café/caramel, un peu fumée. Mais rien d’agressif. En bouche le toastage accompagne bien le tout. Un poil sucrée caramel et petite amertume. Manquant un peu de force, mais belle balance et agrable.

Roublard (201) - Prague, CZECH REPUBLIC - FEB 11, 2015
Aroma is slightly roasted malt beans, a bit straitforward, but tasty. Appeared brown body, quite transparent, head is high, well grained, stable enough. Light sweetness, a bit bitter in the middle, not thick enough. Body is light-medium, the finish is plain and short. A drinkable one, but rather not in the best dunkels ever, should say.
