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°

hman43 (1230) - 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.

DraftDodger (1165) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - SEP 18, 2016
Copenhagen 18/9 2016. 50 cl bottle from Meny. Black (of course) label with both two roaring lions, a giant heraldic shield and a idyllic looking small German town. In gold. Pours dark reddish brown with white head. Settles as 0,5 cm thick layer of foam. Moderate lacing. Aroma is not very strong but of brown sugar, roasted malts, cocoa and caramel. Fairly sweet. Medium carbonation and slightly thick palate. Flavor is well balanced between medium sweetness and medium bitterness. Bitterness lingering in the aftertaste. Nice enough dunkel without being outstanding.

Standard schwarzbier. I had high hopes for this, but it drinks like any other plain black beer the tender could pull out at the bar. Aroma is mild and inoffensive, the colour a bit like dirty dish water. Very little dark malt taste of any kind, and a bit strangely sweet. Meh... All round
