Ausschließlich heimisches Gertenmalz verleiht dem dunklen, mäßig süßem Biertyp einen königlichen Geschmack. Der vollmundige Schlägl "Malz König" eignet sich besonders gut für Biermischungen.

Ethereal (2421) - Los Angeles, California, USA - OCT 1, 2007
500ml bottle. Pours a deep dark, mahogany red. In taste and aroma, it lives up to its name as ’Malt King’. Huge malty aroma, sweet caramel taste and a smooth finish. One for malt fans and lighter and easier to drink than a similar tasting Belgian beer.

vyvvy (5717) - Florissant, Missouri, USA - JUL 26, 2012
Pours very dark with a rocky tan head that leaves very quickly. The aroma is bready with pumpernickel, cream, roasted nuts and lager smoothness. Medium lightly sticky body with mild carbonation. The flavor begins with the aroma traits, but is drier and spicier. The finish has light hoppiness and some dark caramel and toffee. Nice dunkel.

MiP (15253) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - NOV 19, 2008
Draught as Professor Doppelmalz. Sweet bready aroma. Dark brown colour. Big stable light brown head. The flavour is quite sweet, slightly roasted, nicely bready. Does not taste like a low alcohol beer. No watery body, no watery finish. Good, albeit a tad sweet.

renffisch (890) - london, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 6, 2008
draught 330ml at Stiftskeller Schlägl. Bouquet of quince jelly, boiled plum and germinated cereal, this beer really lives up to its name. Deep mahogany in colour with a light beige head, it is a very light malt beer and very easy to drink. Tastes very malty with notes of caramel. Quite quaffable.

yespr (40160) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - DEC 7, 2011
From tap at the brewpub. Pours clear and golden deep amber to brown with a creamy tan head. Aroma is roasted malty and breadish, bitter and slight metallic. Roasted malty and light bitterness. Ends medium dry and roasted.

joergen (25838) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JUL 10, 2013
Draught at Universitätsbräuhaus. Clear orange coloured with a medium sized off-white head. Malty aroma of caramel, hay, bread and hops. Sweet and malty flavour of caramel, bread and hops. Hoppy finish.

thegreenrooster (3977) - St.louis, Missouri, USA - JUL 27, 2012
Pour is a dark brown with a small tan head. Aroma is dark bread with some caramel malt. Flavor is more caramel malt to start then comes a decent nutty, spicy malt. Finishes leaves a decent malty sweetness on the tounge. Decent dunkel.

Braudog (6299) - Yorktown, Virginia, USA - MAR 15, 2014
Bottle. All the typical characteristics here, as if right out of the style guide. Red-tinged black color with an initial Germanic fizzle of a head. Sweet and roasty, King of Malt indeed. (#5462, 3/15/2014)

Saeglopur (1668) - Vienna Woods, AUSTRIA - SEP 25, 2015
500 ml bottle from Interspar Vöcklabruck.
Dark copper-brown body, with a big, unstable, frothy, beige head.
Aroma of bread, caramel, sweet fruits, some toast, some metallic notes.
Taste follows this pretty much.
Medium, oily mouthfeel, with an average carbonation.
Finishes sweet, bready, a bit toasty.

OK, typical Dunkel. Some nice toast and fruit notes, but too sweet overall. There are much better beers from Schlägl.

Geiserich (4103) - Linz, AUSTRIA - DEC 30, 2004
Dusty nose (potatoes?), malty, light sweet. Mahagoni color, off-white head. Malty, light sweet some fruit and hop notes. Light sweet aftertaste with almond notes, and a short dry bitterness. All in all a quite unspectacular Dunkel, but not as sweet as others.
