Pours rather black with a medium-large head. Light malty aroma with a cent of caramel. Tastes malty and sweet, not much bitterness to be found. finish is on the light sweet roasted side. Very light carbonation, light bodied and runs down smoothly. Overall a balanced and decent dunkel.

It pours brown red, medium head (or low for a Weihenstephaner), mild sweet roast aroma. The taste reminds me of a black beer, not as sweet as other dunkels I’ve had, very easy to drink.

Malzig und fruchtig mit einer feinen Süffigkeit. Dahinter etwas Nuss und Karamell. Klassisch ausgewogen mit feiner Balance und mildem Abgang. Nicht schlecht.

McTapps (5349) - Ruhrcity, GERMANY - MAY 8, 2015
The beer has got a deep dark brown colour with a steady head and medium body. Aroma of malt and dark bread. Taste of malt, roasted barley, mild hops, dark bread, mild fruits and nuts. Easy and smooth to drink, enjoyed it.

Bottle 0.5l at Berliner bar Belgrade Serbia.Taste with Jelena when She came for a few days in Belgrade. 02.05.2015.Before my rating I would just say that this is maybe my last time that i have been to Berliner.Prices and service are really weak.This beer costs double more money comparing to other Beer places.Anyway Pour it dark color with medium white head.On the nose roasted note.Taste and aroma of roasted malt, little bit metallic which is ok in this beer, some caramel on the back, smooth finish.I liked it very much even this is not my style.

ippopotamo36 (666) - Rome, ITALY - APR 10, 2015
0,50 bottle purchased at the Beerville shop in Belgrade-Serbia. Ciao Vlada! Pours a reddish brown, clear with a medium-big ivory foamy head which stays long. Nose: initially very metallic (!), then it goes toasted bread, mocha and a bit of caramel. Meh! Mouth: far too watery for a dark one, an overall bitter (herbal) feel, dry closure, some toasted malts. Not that refreshing, neither complex although not the worst dunkel.

Sandog_au (32) - Gladstone, AUSTRALIA - APR 10, 2015
UPDATED: APR 29, 2015 Bottle from Dan Murphy's. Pours a clear dark brown amber with a diminishing slightly off white head. Earthy banana aroma. Banana, malt, slight coffee and slight spicy flavours. Moderate mouthfeel. Very nice drop.

Very easy drinking for the style. Nicely balanced and a nice malty finish. Could be a good beer to introduce new drinkers to that style.
