The Rathskeller rules! Dark with small white head. Decent mouthfeel with hints of roasted grain and a mild sweetness.
Überraschend stark karamelliger Antrunk. Dabei nur wenig süß, angenehme milde Herbe. Durch die Konzentration auf das Malz kommen nussige Aromen angenehm hervor, leicht steigende Würzigkeit. Nussig bitterer Nachhall, weich. Gut! 12/11/12/11//11 hauxe (1017) - Butzbach, Hesse, GERMANY - NOV 29, 2015
Rated from old notes. Medium to light-bodied, hints of malts, but not a lot going on here. Slightly sour taste that gradually sweetens. When done I belched and felt like I had just drunk a Pepsi. Not necessarily a good thing in a beer. BlackBeerPG (981) - Darien, Illinois, USA - NOV 5, 2015
Taste, delicate, slight bitter citrus bite along with dark malts. Dark brown and clear with a foamy head. Silvan7 (1279) - Samarate, ITALY - APR 22, 2014
On tap in Lübeck. marrone, velata schiuma beige fine e persistente. aroma tostato di caffè cacao amaro luppolo erbaceo e un poco di liquirizia. abboccato l’ingresso amaro il finale tostata e poco altro. abbastanza corposa piuttosto equilibrata non molto armonica (il gusto è molto meno interessante dell’aroma).

This beer is malty and that’s about it. I think the traditional recipes are having a hard time holding up to some of the newer beer creations. Overly simplistic for a dark beer.

Draft to taster. Looks solid; a transparent dark caramel with off-white lacing. Smells of dark malt with a bit of bread and toastiness. Tastes like it smells with an average mouthfeel. Alright, but forgettable. reebtogi (6403) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - JUN 12, 2012
330ml bottle poured brown in color with a 2 finger white head that dissipated quite quickly leaving little lacing on the glass. Aromas of caramel and light chocolate with a hint of hops. Taste is caramel and mild chocolate malt sweetness with a hint of hop bitterness in the finish. Light to medium body with adequate carbonation. A very easy drinking dunkel and quite refreshing.

Poured from a liter into a wine-style glass to drink. The beer was a black-brown color with a very small, creamy white head that had very little retention and a little cling. The aroma featured chocolate and coffee malt with some grainy and earthy hops. It tasted sweet and malty with a bit of chocolate, and some mild bitterness too. The beer was smooth and had an average mouthfeel with very little carbonation and was somewhat wet. JohnRMurdoch (5148) - Glasgow, SCOTLAND - SEP 1, 2010
Bottle at Buller Downtown Brewpub, Buenos Aires, Argentina. Unbalanced mild caramel malt aroma & flavour. Dark brown colour. Quite smooth. humulushound (244) - British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 6, 2009
On tap poured into a stein. Dark caramel color with almost no head - but I blame that on the restaurant, not the carbonation of the beer. Aroma and taste is subtle caramel and roasted nuts, some grain character in the finish. Clean, watery palate. Not very exciting. I would give it another chance only if it were served fresh at the brewery in Germany.
