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°

On tap on 6/2/08. Had this at the König Ludwig Biergarten just outside of the Hohenschwangau and Neuschwanstein castles. I quote my notes "Another boring dunkel. Nothing offensive about this beer, but I’m writing my notes on it one day after I drank it and I don’t remember anything special about it. Just that it was easy to drink but boring and lacking character."

Moravius (694) - 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.

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.

500ml bottle at Beer House, Beijing. Pours dark brown with an off white head. Aroma of malt and caramel with apple. Sweet finish.

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.

Ok dunkel tysk øl. Fik den til ølsmagning med Natuglerne �� God i hyggelig selskab - men det var så også det...

This one is pretty popular for some reason. I had it at a Greek restaurant in Alt-Mariendorf. Thought it was fine, but not great.

Soft caramel initial taste. And then long on the tongue after swallowing. Soft and smooth. ---Rated via Beer Buddy
