This beer pours a gorgeous dark amber to brown, but crystal clear with an off-white head that lingers a while.
Not a strong aroma, but what is there is dominated by sweet, grainy malts. The body is medium with enough carbonation to keep it from being too heavy. Crisp and refreshing. The flavor is dominated by malty sweetness with a nice light hop finish, just enough to balance the malts.
Vom Fass im Schinken-Peter Giesing. Dunkelbraunes Bier, kaum Schaum. Malzgeruch. Irgendwie metallisch und Kaffe. Abtrunk Röstmalz. Unausgewogen. Herb, wässerig und metallisch. Gefällt mir nicht. victorsampson96 (143) - North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JUN 13, 2017
(From the keg) Mahogany brown beer, with vigorous fine carbonation, and a dense off-white head. The aroma mild, with sweet malt, toffee, caramel, and juicy sultanas, then roasted nuts and earth towards the end. The lively effervescence keeps the beer light and smooth on the palate.
This beer typifies the German Dunkel: it retains the crisp profile of pilsner, whilst imbued with hints of rich toffee malt. Slightly bittersweet, and pleasantly clean, this is a fine example of the style.
P.S. no offence to the Germans, but this tastes so much better at cellar temperature... ZeroDome (133) - GERMANY - DEC 21, 2016

Served in a stein and looks ok from here. Aroma is nuts and parmesan. Taste is somehow not so sweet but has a parmesany sourness. Ok mouthfeel, medium body. Not good, not particularly bad. JefVerstraete (3556) - Oosterzele, BELGIUM - AUG 30, 2016
@ Franziskaner Biergarten, München. Dark brown, beige foam. Nose of light caramel, some metallic notes, bitter finish, light roastiness. Very weak and watery but drinkable.
