UPDATED: OCT 4, 2006 (500 ml bottle, as Slottskällans Wien). Beautiful dark reddish brown colour, low head. Interesting strong aroma, initially it’s overwhelming horse stable / fresh horse droppings(!), later the caramel, molasses and malts come through. Malty sweetness is well balanced by the hops, pleasant mellow aftertaste. I’ll leave it to the "style police" to discuss if this is Vienna or Munich dunkel - IMO the Swedes have done a reasonably good job with this beer.

Ungstrup (31499) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - MAY 13, 2003
An amber beer with no head. The aroma is slightly sour and a little sweet - as if it has been brewed on brewing cereal. The flavor is very malty sweet - of an OK maltblend - but not really a special flavor. An OK beer - but nothing compared to other Slottskällans beers.

larsniclas (6247) - Billdal, SWEDEN - MAY 4, 2003
Red body with a lot of hoparoma and flavour. Really bitter! Touch of dirt, a beer with an attitude.

LoveCaissa (873) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - FEB 19, 2003
Nut brown colour with a disappointing head. Caramel, chocolate, and roasted malts in the aroma. Flavour is very pleasant, but a bit too thin/watery. Still, a nice Munich dunkel (despite the name).

Hansen (8103) - Assentoft, DENMARK - JAN 31, 2003
I don't like the aroma (ceralic?), and the head goes of to quickly. But the taste and finish is strong and full of hops. Long lasting dry final.

The aroma is strange, mixing some soap, flowers and hop. The mouthfeel is weak, with some caramel and light hop touch. Poor.

Beautiful amber color, thick head. Nice aroma, roasted malt, hop. Flavor dominated by the roasted malt, pretty dry, with a very light smokey note in the background. Pretty strong and quite long final.

Ingevara (868) - SWEDEN - AUG 26, 2002
Lots of mature malt and barley sugar in a good cooperation to give this brown beer a deep aroma with lots of content.

DrBeer (862) - Solna Stockholm, SWEDEN - JUL 29, 2002
UPDATED: FEB 13, 2005 Red-brown-orange with firm beige head. Fresh, spicy, roasted, malty aroma with citrus, chocolate, syrup and treacle. Dry bready flavor with chocolate, treacle and some coffee. Hints of apple. OK bitterness. A bit thin on the palate but definitely a new favorite in the dark lager department

Well, i had the old one named Munich, and the new one named Wien. Well i thought the Munich was pretty ordinary, also had a burnt ash flavour that made me want to stop drinking it, however the one i had under the new name (wien), tasted a bit better (but maybe i was dreaming), seemed to have a hoppier and more bearable, this score is an average of the two.
