COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A bottom-fermented dark beer speciality, which is manufactured in traditional Bavarian brewing procedure.

Bier von königlicher Hoheit.
Mit bestem dunklen Gesternmalz und feinherbem Aromahopfen gebraut. Feinwürzig-malzig und typisch dunkel. Seine Königliche Hoheit, Prinz Luitpold von Bayern, achtet persönlich auf die hohe Qualität dieses Bieres. So ist es Familientradition. Denn schon das Reinheitsgebot von 1516 verdanken wir den Wittelsbacher Wilhelm IV. Ausgesuchte Rohstoffe aus dem Süden Deutschlands, ein spezielles Sudverfahren und die hohe Vergärung machen dieses Bier so süffig. 12°

mikkos (306) - - JUN 29, 2013
Dark crimson beer with a foamy nice head, just goes away too fast. Aroma of dark roasted malts, hint of coffee and chocolate. Metallic notes. Medium carbonation, quite light mouthfeel. A bit watery feeling, same with the taste. Malts, dark chocolate, a bit metallic taste. This is an okay beer but somehow a bit too much on the light side.

sonotono (266) - torino, ITALY - JAN 5, 2017
Rossa scura/marrone, con un bel cappello di schiuma cremosa. Profumo di malto caramellato, cereali, nocciole. Piuttosto frizzante, sapore dolce di malto con poco amaro nel finale. Buona e dissetante.

0,33 l Flasche. Aroma: Röstaroma. Erscheinung: Schwarzes Bier, dichter, cremefarbener Schaum, schöne Gardine. Geschmack: Röstaroma, leicht säuerlich, feine Herbe. Nachgeschmack: Vollmundig, Röstaromen halten sich, leichte Süße kommt nach. Gesamt: Lecker Bier, aber sehr schwer und nichts für den ganzen Abend.

Bottle. Mahagoni. Thick head. Malts, honey, caramell. Aftertaste is sour and a little bit hoppy. Good carbonation. Nice Dunkel, very sessionable but there are better options out there.

hman43 (1299) - Pinehurst, North Carolina, USA - OCT 8, 2016
Had this in Berlin. It pours dark brown with an off white head. It has nutty aroma with hints of chocolate aND a hint of floral. The floral component comes out more in the flavor but the roast and chocolate are still dominate.
