50cl bottle: Pours dark brown with a creamy white lasting head. Aroma is sooo classic dunkel-like. Lots of caramel/toffee & breadish. Light roasted with hints of sugar. Medium bodied - good mouthfeel. Extremely drinkable dunkel.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle 50 cl. Pours a dark brown with a small head and a malty aroma. The taste is a bit sourish, with malts, dark chocolate (only the bitterness, not the sweetness) and some not-that-sweet fruits. This isn’t a bad beer, but weihenstephaner can do much better

UPDATED: JUL 7, 2008 Aroma: caramel, bread . Appearance: brown, clear. Medium body, lively. A very nice dunkel. I wonder if this beer is actually the same beer as Hofbrau München Dunkel, because it is actually brewed by HB.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle (500ml). Poured mahogany with a decent sized; rocky, off-white head which was average lasting. Aroma had strong notes of black currents and tart blackberries with some sweet toffee malts hiding beneath as well as some cranberries somewhere in the mix. Flavor was a light bitterness with sweet toffee malts, sultana’s, blackberries and a dry nutty finish. Light bodied with medium carbonation, a quite watery texture and a ok finish.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Dark brown with beige head. Roasty caramel, chocolate, malty aroma. Some hop bitterness in the malty, chocolate taste. Dry slightly sour finish. Annoying carbonation (typical to the brewery) almost spoils this otherwise good and balanced product.

Thanks to my man Philipp for this nice brew. Half-liter bottle pours a typical dark brown with decent beige head, receding to persistent layer. Even when chilled, beer offered a big, chocolate-malty nose. The flavor brought character, refreshment and balance... lightly sweet and bready maltiness, lightly roasted, lightly bitter. Plenty of flavor yet nothing sticks out. A touch on the fizzy side, but not overly so. A simple beer, but someone on the front end of it really knew what they were doing.
