davidm (1979) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - AUG 29, 2009
UPDATED: SEP 21, 2009 Bottle 500ml. Very enjoyable. Aroma is malty, butterscotch. Looks are ok, clear brown colour with a head that doesn’t last. Flavour is sweet throughout, with some bitterness at the end. Duration is above average. Medium body and dry.

FreshHawk (596) - Iowa City, Iowa, USA - MAR 28, 2010
UPDATED: DEC 18, 2010 On-tap. A - Deep copper amber color with an average to slightly below average sized head that is off-white, foamy, and a bit creamy. Decent retention with a nice lace left over. S - A good amount of toasted grainy malts and some caramel and toffee. T - A lot like the smell. A lot of toasted, grainy malt taste upfront make up the base. Also a good amount of caramel and toffee. Hints of some fruit, a bit of apple and some raisin. On the finish is just the slightest taste of some grassy and earthy hops along with some bread taste. M - Somewhere between light and medium body with moderate carbonation. Crisp taste and somewhat smooth. D - Easy to drink beer that is well balanced and has a good amount of malt flavors. Notes: Nice easy to drink beer that is a touch light on flavor and mouthfeel. Good session type of beer, and a solid beer from a very solid brewery.

erickok (4322) - Tours (and Paris), FRANCE - JUN 20, 2011
Dark brown and small off white head; like a coke. Aroma is quite mild, with brown bread, tomato, cheese, malts. More a focus on drinkability but still enough flavour to satisfy. Pleasant balanced and underwhelming taste. Not a great amount of character yet a fine brew. Great quality for the price, too. (50cl bottle, 1,75 EUR)

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.

Koelschtrinker (13120) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - JUN 4, 2011
Das Dunkle von Weihenstephan gefällt auf anhieb, es ist insgesamt sehr vollmundig und süffig. Angenehm malzig startend, nimmt das malzige Aroma im Mittelteil etwas kräftigere Züge an und schließet mit einem leicht herben, ebenfalls sehr angenehmen Teil. Gutes Bier! Test vom 27.8.2006, Gebinde: Glasflasche Noten: 8,12,12,14,12,12 - 11,90

ClubGonzo (4756) - Bergen, NORWAY - JUL 18, 2011
Bottle from Thai supermarket. Deep nutty brown body, medium creamy egg shell-hued head. Nose is raisins, nuts and near-tart tones of roasty malts and hops combined. Taste is strong roasty malt tones with notes of coffee, burnt toast and nuts coming along towards the aftertaste. Nearly tart with accentuated roastiness-and-hops in the finish. A very nice dunkel from Weihenstephaner.

Kristall-König (2501) - Oldenburg, GERMANY - SEP 20, 2011
Rotbraune Färbung und im Geruch malzig-süß. Dazu ein etwas seltsamer Anflug nach Vergorenem. Geschmacklich malzig mit passender Herbe. Bitterschokoladig. Röstige Noten nach Kaffee im Abgang. Gelungenes und ausgewogenes Dunkel. Nice.Test vom 26.8.2007, Gebinde: Glasflasche

Jessop (207) - AUSTRALIA - OCT 26, 2011
Pours darkish amber in colour with a minimal white foam with nice lacing down the glass. Hints of roasted sweetish and doughy malt on the nose. The flavour of this beer is sublime, it is very soft and deliciously malty with very little in the way of hop bitterness, it finishes both slightly sweet at first then dry out a touch. It is well attenuated and not astringent in any way..
