Big creamy beige lasting head. Clear deep red body with strong fast carbonation. Faint caramelly aroma. Dry-sweetish roasty earty caramelly taste. Mid-bodied. Soft, mild, slightly fizzy mouthfeel. Dryish peppery spicy caramelly aftertaste with roasty sugar and mint notes. Minty spicy notes linger for a long time.

11.2oz bottle - pours clear amber with tan head. Nose is caramel malts and pilsner hops. Taste is sweet on the front end and turns bitter at the end. Aftertaste is roasted. Very crisp and refreshing. medium body with thin to sticky texture. Definitely a beer that can be had in mass quantity and won’t get old. wilnatp (692) - Minnesota, USA - FEB 6, 2012

Aroma sweet bananas hints of biscuity caarmel,bready yeasts.Taste was sweet toast roasty malts.Mouthfeel was creamy carbonation with balanced body with hints of pine at a long finish, alcohol warmth at end. Great dunkel, would be better without the piney finish...

UPDATED: JUN 13, 2012 Tasted at the 2012 St. Louis Centennial Beer Festival from bottle into sampler glass. Poured a clear brown color with good off-white head, persistent with a little Belgian lace. True-to-style German Dunkel aromas and flavors, a classic example: bread, toast, caramel, slight roast. Light-medium body, low carbonation, "chewy" mouthfeel, lingering roastiness. Overall impression is mellow, darkened cereal grains with a clean, crisp lager finish. julieimagery (182) - Coconut creek, Florida, USA - JAN 28, 2012
An easy drinking light beer. Nothing crazy or fancy but it has it’s own special characteristics and flavors. I would buy again. It’s okay. Julie does NOT like this one... AshtonMcCobb (6514) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JAN 28, 2012
At Hofbrauhaus, Munich. Pours dark brown (chestnut) colour with a large head and gentle bubbles. The nose has chocolate biscuits and there is more of the chocolate biscuit note on the taste. The palate is medium in structure and texture with a clean finish. Overall, a good beer. Markm2151 (280) - toledo, USA - JAN 23, 2012
