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.

HammerTroll (410) - Pula / Zagreb, CROATIA - AUG 21, 2014
Clear brown color, medium sized off-white head. Watery. Thin body, average carbonation. I was hoping for some roasty notes, but there is none of them. Hints of caramel. Disappointing.
(Dobro Pivo Pri Ščurku 0,5l bottle)

bjakk (333) - Skagafjordur, ICELAND - AUG 11, 2014
Browngolden with golden foam. Mildly sour malty metalic aroma. Malt, charamel, sweet, buttery with burned malty aftertaste that lasts. High in carbon.

Tap at the brewery. From old notes. Sweet, rich malt flavors, chocolate and caramel. Not overly sweet. Well done dunkel.

RafeAU (60) - Kingston, AUSTRALIA - AUG 1, 2014
Shared a bottle at Plonk. My ventures into lager territory. Dark lager, has some flavour but still a bit mild on taste... not my style.

KeefOz (883) - Tarragindi, AUSTRALIA - JUN 5, 2014
BB 27.08.14. Poured a clear dark coppery brown colour with a two- to three-finger light tan frothy head that diminished quickly (compared to other Weihenstephaner beers tasted recently). Laced OK. Carbonation low with large bubbles. Aroma strongly of sweet malt with underlying faint molasses; all quite sweet. Taste mostly sweet caramel malt plus a hint of sweet fruits and also very subtle hops bitterness. Light body, a bit thin on the mouthfeel. Smooth, clean and with a slightly sweet finish.

zvsn (551) - ISRAEL - APR 28, 2014
On-tap at Weihenstephaner Berlin am Hackeschen Markt. Clear brown with a medium white head. Aroma of caramel,toasted malts and bread. Sweetish with mostly malty flavors, some dark bread notes, low bitterness. Medium-bodied, a bit watery. Well-made beer.

ruigo (1062) - PORTUGAL - APR 1, 2014
Shared a 50cl bottle from Ruppert (Luxembourg). Pours a clear brown colour with not much of a head. Aroma is liquorice, lightly roast and caramel. Average carbonation and medium to light body. Taste is medium sweet and medium bitter with a long dry and bitter end. Not so balanced. Overall, a strange beer but drinkable.
