Pours brown to reddish hue with clear body. and medium off-white head. Aroma is malts, roasted malts, hops, some fruitiness. Palate is medium full.bodied, slightly watery, with crispy , lively carbonation and mouthful. Taste is malts, some dryness and flavors of hops. Finish is sweet, medium dry and had lingering bitter taste. Overall not too complex a Dunkel, but quite tasty and refreshing and has good amount of dryness and hops flavors

Blueshawk (349) - Bad Bellingen, GERMANY - SEP 8, 2016
- braun-schwarze Farbe mit leichter Schaumbildung - Aromen nach leichter röstiger Süße - passende Carbonisierung - der Antrunk ist undefinierbar süßlich - der Mittelteil versinkt dann ohne weitere Höhepunkte ins wässerliche - das Ganze wird dann leider im Abgang auch fortgeführt Fazit: Seltsames dünnes Dunkel

It’s funny how many "Beeradvocates" are fooled by this. "Krombacher Dunkel" = "Krombacher Pils" with Sinamar (Farbebier) added to colour the Beer. There’s 0 roasted Malt flavour in this.An absolute, fraudulent joke. My Review? See my Krombacher Pils Review

0,5 l Flasche. Aroma: malzig, getreidig, leicht hopfig, genauso wie das hauseigene Pils (erste Vermutung: Färbemalz?). Erscheinung: Braunes Bier, flacher, cremefarbener Schaum, schöne Gardine. Geschmack: Malzig süß, leicht metallisch. Nachgeschmack: angenehme Bitterkeit kommt spät, pelzige Zunge. Gesamt: Gut trinkbar, süffig.

hauxe (412) - Butzbach, GERMANY - JAN 5, 2016
Pours brown with a small, somewhat fizzy head that quickly dissipates. The aroma, quite subdued, is of hops and roasted malts, with a cherry note. Body is relatively thin, with quite a bit of carbonation. The undertone is of roasted malts, but this does not subside into being a sweet, malty brew like a lot of darks; the hops balances it out. Still, the overall the overall taste is rather dull, with notes of paper. In general a dry, mild bitterness dominates from beginning to end. Decent.
