Our very harmoniously flavored and spicy-malty Jubiläumsdunkel lights in a beautiful mix of night-dark tones, combined with a dark maroon. This very juicy and mild beer impresses with its richness and its pleasant, not too intense sweetness. Subtle toasty aromas round out each sip.

Bottle, says 5.0%. Sweet, malty, but there are some hops here, even some roasted malt that adds a spectrum of flavours. But subtle is the right word.

My Bottom Line:
Nuts and toffee thrive in a velvety mouthfeel, as light minerality and hops color the finish.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A veil of foam sits atop the attractive mahogany.
-Carbonation is once again a tad excessive in this tap version.
-This is as good as their Palmator Doppelbock, but it is obviously more drinkable.
-Malts are well defined throughout.

On tap at the brewery.

(Bue sur place): Une Dunkel onctueuse avec une douce torréfaction comme principal attrait. Délicieusement balancée et dangereusement buvable.

Erzengel (5078) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - JAN 16, 2014
Schön dunkelbraun-rötlich im Glas. Der Antrunk ist süffig-malzig und schön vollmundig-rund. Zum Hauptteil hin wird das Bier ganz leicht säuerlich, was aber gut zu der schweren, malzigen Grundnote passt. Schöne Malz-Aromen werden im Hauptteil freigesetzt, ganz dezente Kaffee-Note. Der Nachgeschmack ist lang anhaltend, ganz leicht herb und schön ausgeglichen malzig-süßlich.
--> Tolles bayerisches Dunkel – nicht zu süß und schön ausgewogen!

I have 2 from Prösselbräu Adlersberg. The first one up is the Bayerisch Dunkel. From their website: Unser sehr harmonisch abgeschmecktes und würzig-malziges Jubiläumsdunkel leuchtet in einer wunderschönen Mischung aus nachtdunklen Tönen, gepaart mit einem dunklen Kastanienbraun. Dieses sehr süffige und milde Bier überzeugt durch seine Vollmundigkeit und seine angenehme, nicht zu intensive Süße. Dezente Röstaromen runden jeden einzelnen Schluck ab. alc. 5,0% vol Stammwürze 12,5 % Above it states: "Our very harmonic, tasty and spicy-malty anniversary Dunkel is lit in a wonderful mix of dark-as-night tints, paired with a dark chestnut brown. This very drinkable and mild beer convinces with its full mouthfeel and its pleasant , not too intensive sweetness. Decent roasted/toasted aroma rounds out every mouthful." Bunch of marketing-speak, but you got the idea. It’s also a Brauereigasthof, or brewery-inn and hotel. Looks nice but in the Qype (Yelp in Europe) reviews, it got lots of low ratings, mostly for terrible service and horrible food, it seems,... but no one complained about the beer. Now the beer. Yes, as they say, it’s dark, chestnut brown with hints of orange under a vanilla-white head. The aroma is almost all malts, toasted, roasted malts and Vienna or Münchener malts, too, and virtually almost no hop aroma. I like the full mouthfeel, thick; it rolls over the tongue slowly. In the front you get a small hint of tartness and on the sides a hint of bitterness. The aftertaste, however, is where you taste that THIS a Märzen. In the back you get full-on malty sweetness, which is strong but not too intense, as they mentioned above. It’s roasted and toasty in a typical Bayerische Märzen, so nothing unique here. Nonetheless, it’s a very süffiges Bier, making it easy to drink and a joy to swirl around the mouth. It’s a great beer but not WOW, almost the standard of what I’d use if someone wanted me to define a Märzen. It’s not really better or worse than the other Märzen I’ve tried from Regensburg, but it may be the best balanced and easiest to drink. Personally, I would’ve like a tad more hops in it. As an aside, I’d love to taste some Mandarina or other hops that have a grapefruit flavor mixed in with this beer. I bet they the sweet maltiness would complement those hops wonderfully. I don’t brew with Lager yeast, but I can imagine brewing a beer like that.

0.5 l bottle from Braugasthof, Adlersberg... Dark color, good stabile head... Very malty aroma... Very sweet and sometimes a little bit watery flavor.. Just a standard Dunkels beer...

Ungstrup (29992) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JAN 18, 2011
Bottled. A chestnut brown beer with a tan head. The aroma has notes of caramel, metal, and bread. The flavor is sweet with notes of caramel, metal, bread, and malt, leading to a dry, bitter, and metallic finish.

bottle. Deep brown colour, mid-sized off-white head. Roasted malts, raisins and caramel in the flavour, as well a s a fruity sourness that doesn’t belong there, I suppose. I think the bottle was infected, thus the sourness. I’ve got to try and get another bottle.

Bottle, as Prösslbräu Adlersberg Bayerisch Dunkel, shared by fonefan. It’s a slightly hazy, amber beer topped by a beige head. Bready nose with a good dash of caramel. The flavor is pretty much the same, bread and caramel, with some bitterness. Medium to full body, dry. Bready finish with some bitterness. Maybe a bit too bready overall, making the beer seem unbalanced. A decent one though. 090821
