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.

caribou43 (74) - SWITZERLAND - JUN 15, 2015
It is a typical black German beer. It is dry and there is a regular taste of caramel. The colour is normal black-brown transparent. It is a good beer before to drink one doppel bock or porter.

Red-tinged brown beer, beige head. Nose is malty, bready, some caramel in there, toasty-burned notes. Flavor is toasty malt, sweetness, some burned bitterness in the dry finish. Not complex by any means, but clean and pretty quaffable.

magpieken (129) - - JUN 18, 2015
0.5 l bottle. 05.08.15. Deep amber / mahogany colour with a creamy light tan head, which lasted well and left some very nice lacing. Sweet, malty aroma with vanilla, sweet chocolate, a touch of roastiness and some caramel. Light / medium sweetness and only a hint of bitterness. Light to medium body; slightly thin but smooth texture and average carbonation. A quietly confident beer. I could happily spend an evening on this one. 8.
