On tap. Aroma is malty and some caramel. Appearance is dark amber with a small, fast decreasing brown-ish. Taste is slightly bitter and sweet. Leaves a nice bitter mouthfeel. Overall a very unusual dark beer. I like it.

Draught at "Lowenbrau am Gendarmenmarkt" - Berlin.
Dark brown color, much impenetrable one qith a good and resistant clearly nut head. Fragrant aroma with notes of cask, aged wood and dried malty. Crisp and lively in mouth, much refreshing and poor alcoholic perception. Realy bitter notes on the end.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Vom fass @ Löwenbräu Keller, München, Deutschland.
Produced up a translucent, shimmering chestnut brown with intermittent carbonation. Typically big, rocky off-white crown is mostly lasting and weaves a messy lace. Dusty, dirty and earthy malt on the nose with hints of fresh baked chocolate cookies and dried green herbs. Lots of chewy malt in the mouth. Quite sweet, toffeeish and biscuity upfront with a subdued bitterness of malt and dusty hops on the swallow. Lingering sweet malt notes, light chocolate and toffee with a herbal woodiness to it. The body is really quite light and its low carbonation makes it soft on the palate. Quite nice as I expected less of it. Very sessionable Dunkel.

2.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Single bottle purchased at the Alpinhotel Kron Prinz in Bertchesgaden, Germany on 11/20/2011. Colour: Dark brown with high foamy but thin yellow head. Nose: Malt smells roasted but to a sour degree. Yeast and coca-cola together in harmony...well together anyway. Corn appears strong after much swirling. Taste: Light sweet, medium-light bitter, medium sour. There is a some toasty wood that shows early but then it fades into strong corn profile. Simply not a great dunkel...to me anyway.
