COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The name tells the story: our dark beer is brewed according to a tradition handed down from generation to generation. An aromatic beer with a malty character. An archetypal Bavarian beer.

bosta (115) - SLOVENIA - MAR 24, 2014
Bottle, 0,5l. Pours clear light brown color with creamy tan head and nice lacing. Week aroma of caramel and malts. Light flavor of roasted malts and caramel, with slightly dry finish. Medium carbonation. Highly drinkable, but not as good as some other beers from Weihenstephaner.

Muggus69 (1178) - Yarram, Vic, AUSTRALIA - FEB 25, 2014
OLD NOTES OCT 11, 2004 500ml Bottle. Aroma of burnt malt, sweet toffee and a bit of chocolate. Pours clear deep amberish brown body with solid off-white head. Decent flavour of caramel, slight chocolatey malt and with nutty and licorice flavours. The body tends to be a bit of the thin side. Overal it’s not too bad.

Cantabrian (812) - Christchurch, NEW ZEALAND - NOV 15, 2013
Colour of Daffyd Thomas’s "Bacardi & Cola", with a rough off-white head. The flavour is surprisingly bitter, with karamels lurking behind. Not too roasty, not too herbal. Just nice. The finish has an alcoholic touch of an old-timer asthma inhaler.

Mild flavours of caramel, very smooth, not too bad a drop. Could drink a coffee on a hot day.

M_Sack (367) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - SEP 26, 2013
Deep red/brown, thin cream head. Aromas of roast malt, caramel, brown sugar and a slight whiff of metallic lager yeast. Nice flavours of caramel and roasty malt with a residual sweetness. Hollow mid palate with a touch of bitterness towards the back of the palate. Good with pork knuckle. Perhaps just a touch too sweet by itself.
