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°

oppear (112) - Tallinn, - MAY 21, 2013
Color of brown clear caramel and a decent top. First reaction for smell was marzipan, perhaps caramel and hops after. Also the taste is not far from the noseing impression, nice, slightly sweet bitter hops and mostly caramel what this is about. Nice light-sided beer.

Acaro (143) - Madrid, SPAIN - MAY 5, 2017
Aroma: Very subtle cereal and roasted nuts. Appearance: Very dark brown color with clear liquid and minimal white head. Taste: Light sweetness with light bitter notes. Palate: Medium body with creamy texture and average carbonation. Short bitter sour finish. Overall: Soft beer. The points are in general too subtle but balanced. Not alcoholic feeling but that was something to expect.

arsol (1120) - NORWAY - APR 28, 2017
Dyp brun farge med litt kremet hvitt skum. Lukter av karamellmalt, og litt kakao. Mild i smak og ganske mye kullsyre. Lett bittersøt avslutning.

datrael (444) - Kraków, POLAND - APR 27, 2017
W aromacie słodowo, chlebowo, nieco słabej kawy. W wyglądzie brąz wpadający w czerń, konkretna kremowa piana. W smaku ciemny chleb, skórki chlebowe, zboża. Ciało dość konkretne, syte, lekka łodygowa goryczka, pijalne. Ogólnie jednak niewiele się dzieje, przeciętny dunkel.

50cl bottle purchased @ Tante Emma Laden. Robe brun claire avec une belle mousse. Bière assez légère avec des notes de caramel. Les arômes sont peu développés.

Draft pour at the source. The beer is a clear brown with a khaki head of foam. The aroma has chocolate and earthy toffee. Moderately sweet. Medium body and medium carbonation. Good dunkel.

JulienHuxley (5772) - 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.
