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°

Illini08 (542) - Raleigh, North Carolina, USA - JUN 13, 2008
On tap on 6/2/08. Had this at the König Ludwig Biergarten just outside of the Hohenschwangau and Neuschwanstein castles. I quote my notes "Another boring dunkel. Nothing offensive about this beer, but I’m writing my notes on it one day after I drank it and I don’t remember anything special about it. Just that it was easy to drink but boring and lacking character."

JulienHuxley (5705) - Trois-Rivières, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 27, 2017
On tap at the hotel bar. Deep brown mahogany pour with foamy off white head. Aroma is nutty, very roasty, light metallic notes. Taste is nutty, roasty, nice light maltiness. Palate is light bodied, dry, with good carbonation, maybe a tad overcarbed. Definitely a dumbed down dunkel if there is one, but pretty easy drinking nonetheless.

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.
