COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our reddish brown dark lager “Tradition” with its mild aroma of hops smells like roasted malt and impresses with its sweet caramel flavor which is followed by a slight bitterness. Goes well with hearty dishes, such as roasts, poultry and game. Brewed according to our centuries-old brewing tradition on the Weihenstephan hill.

jbrus (4990) - Delft, NETHERLANDS - DEC 26, 2003
UPDATED: JAN 24, 2007 Bottled, blind tasting session, re-rate: This beer might have changed or I was so wrong when I rated it last time. It’s a beautiful very much roasted malty Dunkel. I’d swear it’s a good German Bock during the tasting. Sweet, light bitter, toffee. Very good. Bottled, Dec ’03, 2.5: Cola and light chocolat aroma. Redish brown color, light brown head, fair lace. The start is cola and light roasted, but soon it gets more roasted and bitter. It finishes bitter roasted. Less than medium full body.

Papsoe (25063) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JUL 30, 2005
(Bottle 50 cl) Dark brown beer with an orange-red tone and a small, discreet head. Very pronounced roasted and almost caramel character which is well balanced by a good, dry bitterness. Very nice Dunkel. 260504

Koelschtrinker (19432) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - JUN 4, 2011
Das Dunkle von Weihenstephan gefällt auf anhieb, es ist insgesamt sehr vollmundig und süffig. Angenehm malzig startend, nimmt das malzige Aroma im Mittelteil etwas kräftigere Züge an und schließet mit einem leicht herben, ebenfalls sehr angenehmen Teil. Gutes Bier! Test vom 27.8.2006, Gebinde: Glasflasche Noten: 8,12,12,14,12,12 - 11,90

ClubGonzo (5646) - Bergen, NORWAY - JUL 18, 2011
Bottle from Thai supermarket. Deep nutty brown body, medium creamy egg shell-hued head. Nose is raisins, nuts and near-tart tones of roasty malts and hops combined. Taste is strong roasty malt tones with notes of coffee, burnt toast and nuts coming along towards the aftertaste. Nearly tart with accentuated roastiness-and-hops in the finish. A very nice dunkel from Weihenstephaner.

Kristall-König (2820) - Oldenburg, GERMANY - SEP 20, 2011
Rotbraune Färbung und im Geruch malzig-süß. Dazu ein etwas seltsamer Anflug nach Vergorenem. Geschmacklich malzig mit passender Herbe. Bitterschokoladig. Röstige Noten nach Kaffee im Abgang. Gelungenes und ausgewogenes Dunkel. Nice.Test vom 26.8.2007, Gebinde: Glasflasche

Jessop (207) - AUSTRALIA - OCT 26, 2011
Pours darkish amber in colour with a minimal white foam with nice lacing down the glass. Hints of roasted sweetish and doughy malt on the nose. The flavour of this beer is sublime, it is very soft and deliciously malty with very little in the way of hop bitterness, it finishes both slightly sweet at first then dry out a touch. It is well attenuated and not astringent in any way..

Leighton (20548) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 4, 2012
Tap at Weihenstephaner, Berlin. Pours clear auburn with a rich and creamy, sturdy off-white head. Light toasted malts in the nose with subtle dark fruit notes. Medium sweet flavor with berries, big raisins, some toast, herbal and leafy bitterness. Medium bodied with average carbonation. Slightly dirty bitter bite to finish, then sweet raisins, dry toast, and faint caramel. Well balanced. Very solid beer in a lovely setting.
