An average dark. This Löwenbräu dunkel is good if you see it as a mass produced beer. But it is not something extraordinary.

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.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap. Surprisingly refreshing dark beer with a small head but a fine malty aroma reminding me of some nuts and caramel. Tastes very light and easy, something sometimes unusual for a darker beer.

I was really expecting to hate this. Drank it at the Addison Oktoberfest and the dipshits pouring the beer left no head. Nice roasted malt characters and it went down nice and smooth.

Draught. Dark amber with a medium offwhite head. Aromaof caramel and malt. Flavour is quite deep sweet, roasted notes of caramel. Finish is dry and similar to beers with stronger alcohol content
