Draught in Munich. Pours russet-mahogany, with beige head. Fruity toffee aroma, and quite sweet on the tongue, with malt and raisins predominating. Pleasant mouthfeel. Decent Dunkel.

Lots of head from the tap when he started pouring it, but it didn’t linger for a long time. Very clear brown, slight aroma of toasted malt. There was a good blend of toasted malt and caramel in the taste (it actually reminded me of the Grimbergers from the other night, and those are supposedly a much different style, though I wouldn’t be surprised if they’re closer to this style than vice versa). It was easy to drink, and I could keep drinking them, but it won’t make me forget any of the others I rate in this range.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Pours a dark Brown glass. Has an aroma of coffee and dark chocolat with à rather bitter taste, not as sweet as other Paulaner beers and that was a little let down.

0.5L draft at a small little restaurant in Munich. Delicious brew – strong banana/bubblegum/clove esters that you seek in a quality Dunkel. Excellent sweet malty notes and a nice finish. The beer just rolls across your palate and delights along the way. Fabulous. I wish that this was available on draft in the USA.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Sweet sugary and cereal aroma. Thins and brown color. Not that heavy on the palate, no the body is actually thin. Lingering bitterness and perhaps to sweet. Caramel and bread-like flavor with a hint of fruit. Not bad, but could be more.
