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

500 ml bottle in Germany. Deep dark amber color. Clear. Medium lasting creamy beige head. Aroma is chocolate and malt. Flavor is smooth. Slightly roasty and with notes of caramel/chocolate. Has a very soft, light-bitter aftertaste. A very fine dunkel.

Half liter @ Weihenstephaner. This one is an amazing dunkel. It is sweet and malty, but not too much, the hops save it and it turns into an easy-drinker.

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.

Crystal clear brown-red colour with nice head and lacing down the glass. This beer is malt, malt, malt. The flavours really open up as the beer warms, with the dark, decocted malt flavour dominating. Hops are barely present. This is a delicious beer, and would almost be the perfect session beer. What lets it down in terms of a rating is that it is one-dimensional. Admittedly, that dimension is fantastic but this isn't the most challenging beer.

UPDATED: SEP 25, 2007 Pours dark tawny in color. Medium beige head, not so good retention. Mild malty aroma, a little bit sweet. Taste is strong malt, a little roastness, and bitter-sweet. Resiny mouthfeel. There’s a little acidity in the aftertaste that makes it very refreshing.
A well balanced dunkel.
Very good! So bad it is expensive here in Brazil... :(
Re-rating: it is a wonderful beer. I’m loving it more and more...

Tap at Weihenstephaner am Hackescher Markt in Berlin. Rich mahogany color with a nice frothy head. Aroma is subtle with caramel, walnut, and sweet bread tones. Flavor progresses from that sweet bread to a date and candied chestnut nuttiness, finishing with notes of plum and fig. Great massaging carbonation, medium body. Excellent German beer.

Dobre, ale przyznam sie ze spodziewalem sie piwa sporo lepszego. Piwo jest dosc aromatyczne, zlozone w smaku, karmelowe, daktylowe i spokojnie ulagodnione na finiszu. Nut chmielnych nie ma ale wiadomo tu nie o to chodzi. Slodowo karmelowy smak jest tresciwy, a piana sredniej wielkosci ale w miare trwala.

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.
