May 29th, 2011 - That cheeky monk goes wherever good beer goes. He’s kind, affable, and accessible, even for the poorest beer drinker like me. There’s no reason not to pick up a whole line of the Franziskaner beers, then, and give yourself a week to take in a little German culture and art. I started my horizontal tasting with the Hefe-weissbier Dunkel, appealingly dark, but certain to have a refined elegance reserved for lighter beers. and lagers. It pours with a somewhat thick light brown head, and the body glows with a deep and dark-orange red color, like a dying ember. I can’t catch much aroma through the foam, so I dig a shaft through the bubbles and take a sip. It begins with a light core of chocolate, accented with clove and brown sugar, resembling a pumpkin beer without the vegetal notes. The body is medium, the flavor is good, clear and clean, and sports a lot of straightforward, no-nonsense palate pleasing that would go tremendously well with chicken or pork dishes. Why don’t I buy these beers more often?

Aroma is caramel, malt and touch of banana. Pours opaque dark brown with rather large frothy head. In flavor much more malty than the not-dark variety, with some caramel and the yeastiness shifting to the background. Light body, medium carbonation. Nice but not as stunning as their regular hefeweizen.

Cervesa fluixa. M agraden les cerveses Dunkel amb més caràcter . Li falta aroma, una bona olor, un recorregut a la boca més llarg, una evolució a copa més llarga. Una cervesa prescindible, pensada massa pel gran public.

Oiolosse (122) - Granada, SPAIN - MAY 14, 2017
Color marrón rojizo con la cabeza blanca. Se asienta como capa delgada pero cremosa de espuma. Cordón moderado. El aroma es dulce. Limonada con toques de plátano. Un poco tostado. Cacao ligero. Carbonatación muy fuerte y paladar ligeramente grueso. El sabor es bastante dulce pero ligero. Muy ligera amargura. El regusto es dulce con notas agrias. Caballo de batalla a precio asequible en supermercados.

Brotig fruchtiger Geruch. Im Antrunk leichte Säure, vollmundiger Geschmack mit guter Würze. Der Kohlensäuregehalt passt sehr gut.

Bottle at Teddys Softbar, september 22nd 2016. Dark brown body with an offwhite head. Aroma of caramel, earth, banana. Taste is sweet and grainy with sopay yeast esters, quite mild taste all in all.

kdd230 (63) - Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 30, 2017
500ml. bottle in Mae Kasa, Thailand. Pours a cloudy red/brown with a reddish white head that dissipates quickly. Aroma of roasted malt, dark fruits. Tastes very roasty, malty, biscuity. Medium carbonation that settles. A pleasant but prickly mouthfeel. A good, solid, well-balanced Dunkel.

Flaska. Dimmig brun öl med ett större ljusbeige weissbierskum. Doft av lätt rostad malt, lätta skumbanantoner och jäst. I smaken tillkommer lättare toner av torkad frukt.
