Pours a nutbrown liquid with a nice, tan head. Aroma is malt and caramel. Bitterness is low, not many hops here. Taste is roasted malts and caramel, but its quite smooth , only gets a bit dry towards the end. Pretty good value, these sell for around 1€ /50 cl bottle, in "El Corte ingles" in spain.

Sweet, malty aroma with some alcohol and chocolate notes . Medium lacing with thin head and dark brown color. Deep, complex flavor- chocolate, caramel, and molasses with ripe fruit and cloves. Sweet finish. I would definitely recommend this beer and buy it again.

sound67 (474) - Offenbach, GERMANY - JUL 25, 2015
Klosterbrauerei Weltenburg, Kelheim, Germany. Barock Dunkel, 4.7% (cask at the Bierbörse Bonn). Mahogany, clear, with small, creamy beige head. Aroma of toasted malts, rye bread, caramel. Medium to full body, hardly watery. Rye bread (wee sour), caramel, dry licorice at first. Some chocolate and coffee malts - more so towards the middle. Still a slight licorice touch, into the finish. Which has espresso bitter notes, soft faintly sweet malt, but aftertaste is dry, bitter expresso. Lasting. Very good Dunkles, not really a session beer due to its dryness.

From hipercor. In Paulaner glass. A dinner, with sausages sandwich. Nice beer but nothing memorable about it.

Inte SB, flaska. Kopparfärg fin arom. Ingen bitter. En riktig matdunkel. Bästa dunkel ever ?

Beer Weltenburger Kloster Barock Dunkel twice honored with the title of "World Beer Cup", as the world’s best dark beer. It was in 2004 and 2008, respectively. The body of an average, more than "11" rather than "12". The taste malty, slightly sweet, slightly caramelized, slightly pechenisty sufficiently soft and buttery. Feels toasted bread. Hops are present, but the taste a bit. The finish is long, caramel-grain, malt, balanced. Good to drink in the desert, eating some confectionaries. But I would not call it the best beer in the world of dark beer.

TedE (502) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - JUL 5, 2015
330ml bottle into glass. Room temperature. Rich inviting nose, dark chocolate, coffee, smoked meats. Clear ruby red beer with a few bubbles. Solid white head. Easy drinking, body is quite thin. Finish is clean, a bit sour, a touch of smoke, some malt sweetness. Balanced and quite subtle. You could drink a lot of these, oh yeah!
