So, I’ve always kinda complained about how Warsteiner is a shitty example of German beer. Especially the Dunkel. But upon my last tasting, it started to grow on me a bit. Maybe it took pouring it into a nice clear stein to see it’s mahogany, oaky, copper color and nicely sustaining frothy white head. The aroma is rather nice too; very sweet and malty with caramel and a hint of cocoa. The flavor is the only thing that is left to be desired next to a higher quality dunkel. Yet it is still flavorful enough to enjoy while being rather light and refreshing. Cocoa and vanilla with roasted malts. Nice, medium finish. Not too shabby. But no Ayinger Altbairisch Dunkel..

This "light bodied clean dark lager" is best left at that. Better than slurping down a typical macro Lager, this cola-looking quaff has a real metallic twang to it that is had to look past. Nutty, roasty, earthy chocolate and coffee notes attempt to peer through the steel haze. Thin bodied and with mid carbonation, this is a brew I am glad to have tried. Once.

Assez ordinaire. Les malts allemands ressortent très peu. Petite touche de torréfaction

pours cola brown with a medium tan head. aroma is malt and chocolate. Satiny smooth mouth feel. Taste is semi-sweet with definite chocolate notes. Medium length warming finish. Very little alcohol presence. Pretty good beer.

Backlog. On tap at the Bohemian Biergarten. Brown appearance with a tan head. Munich malts, toffee, light caramel, light chocolate and light noble hops. Light to medium body, pretty easy to drink. Solid dunkel.

Pour is a nice reddish brown with a brief cameo appearance by an off-white cap (blink and you’ll miss it). Nose is caramel, roasted grain, raisins, faint roasted nuts and grass. Taste is surprisingly water, less sweet than I expected, with a bit of dryness to the finish. Lingering roasted grain and mineral taste. Not horrible, but pretty blah to me.

Draft. Dark brown amber pour with two fingers of beige head, bit of lacing. Malt and nut aroma, maybe a hint of smoke. Taste has some heavier notes in in it, some coffee. Medium to heavy body, smooth carbonation.
