Koelschtrinker (11056) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - JUN 4, 2011
Das Dunkle von Weihenstephan gefällt auf anhieb, es ist insgesamt sehr vollmundig und süffig. Angenehm malzig startend, nimmt das malzige Aroma im Mittelteil etwas kräftigere Züge an und schließet mit einem leicht herben, ebenfalls sehr angenehmen Teil. Gutes Bier! Test vom 27.8.2006, Gebinde: Glasflasche Noten: 8,12,12,14,12,12 - 11,90

Pyobon (975) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - MAY 12, 2011
Bottle. Clear copper with little head. Initially not a lot of aroma, but increased as temperature increased - rich and malty. Medium body with lightly fluffy mouthfeel. Flavour has a light refreshing start that develops into a richer maltiness with dark chocolate notes and a long finish of coffee and some hop bitterness. Overall a nice dark beer - easy to drink but with a lot going on tastewise.

crispi (106) - AUSTRALIA - MAR 30, 2011
0.5l bottle. Clear dark reddy brown, with minimal head. Caramel and bread aroma, with resin hoppyness. Slightly sweet, with light bitterness. Guessed it was 5.2pc, and was spot on.

Palme (3591) - Bergen, NORWAY - MAR 29, 2011
Tap @ Weihenstephaner Resturant. Pours a clear brown body with a small off-white head leaving long lacing down the glass. Nose is strong burned caramel, yeast and floral notes. Low carbonation and medium-bodied. Tastes strong caramel with some grassy and herbal notes. Dominated completely by the lovely caramel-malty flavor and I can sense a light smoky flavor in there as well. Really good!

Maris (1023) - Canberra, AUSTRALIA - MAR 19, 2011
From a 500ml bottle on 20/3/2011. Pours a clear dark amber with a decent head. The aroma is very malty, with caramel, toffee and biscuit notes. The flavours are very similar - mountains sweet caramel and toffee malt, with a touch of chocolate. There’s a good dash of bitterness at he back to balance the sweetness of the malt. An enjoyable beer.

TaxiDriver (1472) - Stadland, GERMANY - FEB 6, 2011
Bottle. The aroma is malty, light bitter, some black bread. The normal large pale beige head is creamy and has a normal duration, the body is dark red. The taste is a little bit bitter, light malty and with a soft metallic finish which is not that bad. The body is light to medium strong, creamy with a normal carbonation.
