One of my favorite beers ever. I don’t know why but I have a soft spot for the wonderful grainy maltiness and delicious noble hops in this beer. I can drink this to oblivion. If I could only have one beer this might be it.

UPDATED: FEB 16, 2012 (fresh well-cared-for bottle)
Aroma is full of sweet bready roasted malt, and reminiscent of sugar carmelized in hot butter.
Appearance is coppery brown with a thin beige head.
Taste is mostly sweet roasted malt, fruity yeast and alcohol esters, a touch of minerality, and a hint of browned butter.
Palate has a round medium body with medium carbonation.

A german classic dunkel. Heavy on the flavor, malty, but medium bodied. A session dunkel for sure.

Spaten München Dunkel has a thick, lively beige head, a clear, bubbly reddish-brown appearance, and lots of splotchy lacing left on the glass. The aroma is of sweet brown bread, and the flavor is the same with some slight caramel, wine, and hop notes. Mouthfeel is light-to-medium, and Spaten München Dunkel finishes semi-dry, crisp, refreshing, and highly drinkable. Overall, this is a most excellent beer. RJT

After pouring, dried fruit and crusty bread aromas hit the nose. A clear deep dark reddish brown color in appearance as it pours in the glass. Nice dark wheat bread in flavor with a toasty aftertaste. Overall it great! I hadn’t had something this pleasing in a long time.

BisonWitches (3) - - JAN 15, 2013 does not count
The Spaten Dunkel (dark wheat) offers a great alternative to Wit/Wheat beer drinkers. This Dunkel is easy to drink as it’s light on the palate and offers a nice wit beer flavor with a bit a malt added.
