Overly sweet with lots of dark fruits, some caramel and some bread. Disappointing bitterless and slightly sour finish.

snoworsummer (2034) - baltimore, Maryland, USA - JUL 24, 2014
From a bottle. Pours medium tawny brown with a fizzy white head. Tastes malty, like stale grains, caramel, raisins. Light body and low carbonation. Smells like sweet roasted malt and raisins.

superspak (2543) - Michigan, USA - JUL 13, 2014
12 ounce bottle into lager glass, bottled on 8/27/2013. Pours crystal clear ruby red color with a 1 finger dense light khaki head with good retention, that reduces to a thin cap that lingers. Light spotty soapy lacing clings on the glass, with a moderate amount of streaming carbonation retaining the head. Aromas of caramel, toast, toffee, brown bread, light roast, raisin, pear, apple, herbal, and yeast earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance of dark/bready malt, yeast ester, and light hop notes; with solid strength. Taste of caramel, toast, toffee, brown bread, light roast, raisin, pear, apple, herbal, and yeast earthiness. Zero bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of carmel, toast, toffee, brown bread, light roast, raisin, pear, apple, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a short bit. Good balance and solid robustness of dark/bready malt, yeast ester, and light hop notes; with a very clean finish with zero cloying flavors. Medium carbonation and body; with a smooth, crisp, and lightly bready mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is well hidden with no warming present after the finish. Overall this is a good Munich dunkel style. Good balance and solid robustness of dark/bready malt, yeast ester, and light hop flavors; and very smooth and crisp to drink. A pleasant and enjoyable offering.

generallee08 (637) - New York, USA - JUN 24, 2014
It has a deep reddish amber body that is very dark but also has good clarity. On top there is a thin light tan head that fades quickly down to a ring of lacy foam. The aroma has just a simple sweet caramel malty presence with no hint of hops at all. The flavor has a candy like sweetness with caramel, light roasted notes and very light floral hops in the background. The palate has a sweet malty finish, soft carbonation and a modest medium body that is very drinkable.

maltman53 (301) - Corrales, New Mexico, USA - JUN 11, 2014
Bottle pour is carbonated coffee color with a slightly-off white head that dissipates quickly. No where near the class of a Ayinger Altbairisch Dunkel. Lacks the chocolaty, toasty depth in aroma and palate I expect from a Munich Dunkel. Ayinger has much more body and mouthfeel and finish. Overall, the Spaten is okay if you’re on a budget, but why not spend a little more for the far superior Ayinger.

argo0 (11442) - Washington DC, USA - JUN 9, 2014
12oz bottle. Small beige head atop crystal clear copper body. Aroma is moderately sweet, caramel, light orange/earthy. Taste is moderately sweet, caramel, some orange, light bread, skunk. Light-medium body, light stickiness, effervescence.

Bottle. Nice and dark. Malty as hell. Nice beer. I like it. Have fun drinking.

Brewdork (228) - Sanford, Florida, USA - MAY 20, 2014
330 ml bottle poured into large lager glass. Deep caramel color with a couple of fingers worth of foamy off-white head that sticks around for a few minutes before melting into a slick. Aroma is primarily malt with notes of tobacco and some slight skunkiness. Flavor is predominantly caramel roasted malt with some nuttiness. Light mouthfeel and a faint bitter finish.

jagad5 (65) - - APR 25, 2014
An adequate beer, poured from a bottle into a pilsner glass, forming a thin, short-lasting head. Passable with pepperoni pizza. Much better in München with a bratwurst.
