COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The name tells the story: our dark beer is brewed according to a tradition handed down from generation to generation. An aromatic beer with a malty character. An archetypal Bavarian beer.

Rune (7999) - Tromsø, NORWAY - JUN 25, 2007
500ml bottle served at perfect temperature at an outdoor cafe in Freising, Bavaria. Thin, off-white head over a deep mahogany coloured body. Malty to the nose. Suitable sweet malty flavour with notes of cocoa and hops. Dry ending. Rather foamy mouthfeel. Easy drinking. Not among the best German dunkels (24.06.2007).

KnutAlbert (6067) - Oslo, NORWAY - NOV 9, 2005
The label states that this is brewed for them by Hofbräu München. A sweet, nutty beer with a pleasant hoppy finish, but not outstanding in any way.

wunderbier (1434) - Tampere, FINLAND - DEC 31, 2007
Pours a clear, iced-tea hue with a medium, foamy, white head. The aroma is bizarrely similar to iced tea as well. Sugary, a little toffee, very bready and grainy. Slim, earthy hops. Flavour is quite similar to the aroma; starts lightly sweet and grows drier with each sip due to moderate astringency. Medium-light body; watery texture; fizzy, annoying carbonation. Grainy, astringent, watery...not the best effort I’ve had from this brewery.

Clear amber with medium off white head. Seet aroma with roasted malt, caramel and breadish notes. Flavour likewise. Body is thin.

Bottle. Clear brown liquid, watery. Light to medium body and carbonation. Light bitterness and sweetness. Watery with no noticeable aroma except maybe some honey.

Stew41 (1736) - Woodend, AUSTRALIA - JAN 9, 2005
Dark chocolate brown; shows good clarity. Nose isn’t doing much, faint roasted malty notes. A bit flat in the mouth as well; some more malty notes but doesn’t really hit any level of interest. Pleasant enough but there are simple too many better beers at the price. (use by date July 2005)

Cletus (6354) - Connecticut, USA - JAN 20, 2006
Pours a deep brown with a light brown head. Smells breddy and nutty. Taste is nutty with some mellow fruit and bananas. Where are all the great tastes associated with this style?

WalterSmidge (14) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - OCT 8, 2008
Beautiful Amber colour with an off white head that disappears very quickly. Intense Burnt flavour with hints of bread and coffee and a sweetness that comes upon first sipping but is soon overpowered by the burnt yeast flavour. Slight aftertaste, not totally clean. A difficult beer to drink.

Bottle at all in hua hin, thailand. Dark copper color, big white head. Malty and roasty aroma. Basic watery malty roasty taste.
