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

My Bottom Line:
Long Munich maltiness is endowed with toasted accents in this beautifully aromatic and drinkable Dunkel.
Further Personal Perceptions:
-A slice of foam laces atop the dark brown shine.
-Mouthfeel is lean and bubbly, yet all malt flavors are given plenty of room to take over the palate.
-Hops offer but a mild bitterness, never taking room away from the malt showcase.
-The flavor profile is as polished as all other Weihenstephaner brews.
On tap at their restaurant in Freising.

I've looked for a favorite beer and feel I have finally found it. Grate taste and a decent price for an import.

Bottle bought at the beer store at the brewhouse in Freising. Overall a good dunkles. Caramel and rostated malt in the aroma. Coca cola color, stable off white head. Taste is malt, caramel and rosated malt, some minor sweetness. Refrehing. Anytime again.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

Browngolden with golden foam. Mildly sour malty metalic aroma. Malt, charamel, sweet, buttery with burned malty aftertaste that lasts. High in carbon.

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.
