On tap at the Pappenheimer Wirtschaft, Hamburg: 11th Dec 2014. Clear brown body with a lasting white head that gave impressive lacing. Malty and sweet in both the nose and taste. A very nice Dunkel, if like me you prefer the sweeter versions of the style. Uncomplicated and decent. Ernest (7889) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - MAY 9, 2013

A very husky, dirty beer. Borresteijn (7598) - Zaandam, NETHERLANDS - JUN 2, 2017
50cl Bottle, tfs Harmen! Clear brown colour, off-white head. Aroma of toast, grain, dark bread. Flavour is watery, grainy, hint of roast, dark malts, bitter finish. Light bodied, watery. Not a great example of the style imho. olsvammel (7312) - Örebro, SWEDEN - JUL 29, 2015
I tried this somewhere in Bamberg. Light bready and malty smell. Similar taste with some metall. Distinct bitterness. A bit too metallic. MesandSim (7117) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 13, 2009

Copper coloured with a decent white head. Just about the darkest thing I’ve ever seen called a lager. Rather sickly malt with a little too much grainy character. Faint hops and cardboard in the finish. Uneventful but drinkable.
(bottle) clear dark mahogany colour with a slightly off-white bubbly head. aroma has strong hints of roasted malts, hazelnut, coffee and a light hop fragrance. the dominant flavour is roasted coffee, with hazelnut, chocolate and malt touches and a delicate hop spiciness. mild carbonation, light to medium body. a distinct and flavourful lager. McTapps (6984) - Reutlingen, GERMANY - MAY 26, 2013
Deep dark brown colour with low creamy head and medium to smooth body. Nose of malt. Nose of nuts, dark bread, dark grains, roasted caramel and balsamico vinegar. Really easy and nice to drink, quaffable and okay. blutt59 (6599) - Dallas, Texas, USA - FEB 12, 2011
bottle, via trade with erlangernick, pours a dark almond color with big lacy foam, nutty roasted pumpkin seed aroma, tasty flavor of bright hoppy minerals and nutty roast, smooth bitter finish SinH4 (6566) - Garching b. München, GERMANY - APR 11, 2017
UPDATED: APR 11, 2017 Bottle. Brown color with ruby highlight and a big tan head. Aroma is malty, earthy, a touch of grassy hops. Taste is earthy, some Franconian juicy malts, chocolate, mineralic, bready, nutty, grassy, and with some nice hops. Natural carbonation. Ridiculously drinkable and refreshing without losing taste or character. MichaelAwesome (6546) - Wanne-Eickel, GERMANY - MAY 26, 2013
After drinking lots of hops dominated beers this one was a huge malty surprise. Quaffy, malty, full bodied, easy to go. Some nuts and caramel in the background. But this does not matter as malt wins it all. Good one.
