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°

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.

ectuohy27 (627) - 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...

0,5 bottle. Dark red colour with nice beige head. Medium carbonation, clear liqud. Caramel and baked apple in aroma and in taste. Thick texture and full body. Awesome long aftertaste with medium bittersweet in it. Great dunkel.

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 (2475) - 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)

Una dunkel tedesca in tutti i suoi aspetti. Ottima all’aroma e all’aspetto, perde al palato e al gusto, ma in generale è una buona birra

Lukasmh (249) - Aarhus, DENMARK - OCT 16, 2014
UPDATED: OCT 20, 2014 Bottle. Pours clear amber with two finger beige head. Aroma is caramel, brown sugar and malty bread. Slight fruity estere. Taste is caramel and malts. Watery mouthfeel, but crisp finish though. Some burnt sugar in the ending too.

gururyan (635) - Stillwater, Oklahoma, USA - OCT 11, 2014
This was too sweet for my tastes for a dunkel. It didn’t have much body, could have been more assertive too. I’d drink it if you handed it to me, but I won’t be paying for another.

PsychoGunnar (200) - Bergen, NORWAY - OCT 11, 2014
Dark translucent red-brown bayer from Bayern. Sweet smell of baking and botany, but a bit too discret and not characteristic enough to get carried away by. The taste contains some soy, a lot of caramel and nutty notes. Not bad! Creamy mouth feel, slightly sticky in an ok way. I like this more than it deserves, if that makes sense.
