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°

WVHouseofBeer (1023) - Florida, USA - JUN 20, 2016
Looks like cola coming out of the bottle with a small white head. Nice aromas of chocolate, nuts and some caramel. Tastes the same as it smells but the flavors are not as pronounced as the aromas. Slightly watery body with a clean finish. A fairly average Dunkel

I do not wax on poetically about beer but I do know the quality of a beer once tasted. This review is not about my tastes but reinforces the numbers, which are arbitrary.

gift from Kyle (son) on a trip home from Germany - Thanks!!! --- Aroma of malt and burlap (good aroma). Clear amber brown color, beige two-finger head that persists, strings of lace. Taste is light malt, carbonation, and light bittering. Very simple brew, very light, but balanced and satisfying.
