On tap at Paulaner im Tal, Munich. Nice brown-amber color with big small-bubbled beige head. Aroma is chocolate, caramel, some rusty nails. Taste is similar, nice malt base, no booziness, not too sweet, quite dry actually. Rather low carbonation, juicy mouthfeel. A classic, I suppose.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: NOV 11, 2015 500ml bottle at Chopin Airport, Warsaw. Light murky brown, with that suspect look that so many Dunkels have. Smell is bananas, potpourri, raw dough and chocolate malt. Gentle sweet malty taste, unchallenging but refreshing. Solid.
