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°

Nice looking, but quite empty taste map. It should be much more bitter and acid. Should the hops be changed?

visionthing (3886) - Oslo, NORWAY - NOV 23, 2015
50cl bottle from Heinemann, OSL Airport. Pours clear dark brown with a modest off-white to beige head. Malty and caramelly aroma with some slightly roasty notes and hints of dark dried fruits. Sweet and caramelly with a very light bitterness. To sweet for my taste, but still fairly drinkable.

Schlumpfhunter (36) - Bavaria, GERMANY - SEP 28, 2015
Farbe: dunkel Schaum: gut sämig lässt a bisserl schnell nach Nase: gerösteter Malz, rund, fast Richtung dunkle Schoko. Geschmack: relat sprudlig frisch auf der Zunge, Nachgeschmack breit, deutlich gerösteter Malz, Holz, ein richtiges klares Dunkles. Der Breite Malzgeschmack bleibt auch auf der Zunge, nichts Bitteres oder Saures. Setzt für mich neben Guiness den Standard.

Erzengel (6242) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - SEP 11, 2015
On tap. Mild and smooth. Not too deep, roast, nuts, very soft but not too deep. Hints of grain, not much bitterness. Hints of sweetish caramel, but very easy to drink without thinking about it. Nice.

From the bottle off white head. Nose of yeast and malt. Taste quite some grassy hops. Some weedy aftertaste. Decent...

mrjez (193) - 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.
