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°

Color of brown clear caramel and a decent top. First reaction for smell was marzipan, perhaps caramel and hops after. Also the taste is not far from the noseing impression, nice, slightly sweet bitter hops and mostly caramel what this is about. Nice light-sided beer.

tricyclist (909) - Florida, USA - JAN 13, 2015
A nice pour, murky amber/brown. Nose is rich malt and a little smoke, some caramel with cloves and light to no banana, no bubblegum. Flavor is smooth smokey malt, caramel from roast and a little toffee, again not much banana... Light to medium clove presence. Medium mouth coating body. Drinkable and enjoyable for the style.

reddish brown colour, moderate sized yellowish beige head; aroma of dried plum, some raisin, toasted rye bread, nuts and some caramel; taste is less complex/intensive and a bit watery: some bread, plum, cocoa notes and caramel; easily drinkable dunkel

ectuohy27 (641) - ESTONIA - DEC 9, 2014
Rich dark appearance, interestingly crisp and caramelly without being overly brown-sugar-laden. not quite as enjoyable as a bock but a welome and decent beer...

dirtyrat (44) - Bowling Green, Ohio, USA - NOV 20, 2014
Excellent dunkel overall. Poured a dark brown with a good frothy head. Malty and medium sweetness. Thick and heavy, with a long solid finish. Really liked this dunkel! One of the best i have found in Germany.

ALLOVATE (2486) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - NOV 14, 2014
Into a tulip, chilled. Russet brown, bright and shimmering with an inch of steady off-white foam atop. Nutty, dusty, lumber and cereal-like nose; minerally with a hefty note of pumpernickel, saw-dust, oat cake and roggenbrot. Bready, nutty on the palate, dry in the back with a solid roasted grain base. Specks of cocoa, roasted almond and peanut, roggenbrot, kelp with light tanninf and a low key hint of rust. Moderate carbonation elevates it; the body medium light and holding as it warms. Well balanced and pleasant. A nice Dunkel. (50cL, BB 20/05/15, The Liquor Shed, Jandakot)
