Eines der ältesten und besten bayrischen Biere. Aus der Klosterbrauerei des Weltenburger Klosters verspricht dieses Bier einen der besten Genüsse die ein dunkles Bier bieten kann. MrRomero (1976) - Nolanville, USA - MAY 27, 2008
500 ml bottle: poured clear brown with a nice tan head. Roasted malt aroma with a touch of caramel. Flavor is roasted malt with some chocolate notes. Mild bitter finish. Good. Dredd (940) - Bentleigh, AUSTRALIA - MAY 24, 2008
Excellent beer, gets it all spot on. Pours dark chocolate brown with a tan fine tan head that lasts quite a while leaving some good lacing. Aroma is predominantly chocolate malts, roast malts and a hint of coffee.
Flavour is very good with the aromas coming in to the flavour mix along with some toffee sweetness and some slight graininess of the roasted malts coming through. What impresses me most is that the body is rich and full for a 4.% ABV beer, normally there would be a hole in the palate range but this is spot on, no wateriness or thinness at all. Finally the finish is quite long a pleasant, mainly coffee with a touch of prune in there. janir (216) - Oulu, FINLAND - MAY 20, 2008
Clear, deep ruby-brown color. Light brown and lacy head. Very syrupy sweet malty aroma. Flavor is roasty malty with "Finnish Easter pudding" and some rye-bread. Palate is medium-bodied and smoothly and low carbonated. liinis (1770) - Helsinki, FINLAND - MAY 20, 2008
brown with tan head. nothing special. very light and easy. slightly bitter giving a bit of character for the beer.

Nice clear brown appearance with a small beige head. Aroma of roasted malt, toffee, plum. Smooth mouthfeel with a light roasted taste with some coffe or tea flavour. Light aftertaste. SuperDave (1932) - Beautiful Sunny Mesa, Arizona, USA - APR 24, 2008
Pours a clear dark amber with a foamy tan head that leaves some nice lacing. Roasted malt and nut aroma. Some caramel in the flavor. Sweeter and lighter tasting than I expected. Fairly dry finish. I enjoyed this beer a lot. obguthr (6369) - Staunton, Virginia, USA - APR 23, 2008
Aroma of ark roasted oats and tea, altbeerish. Clear brown pour with a thin yellow head. Sweet, wheat bread which turns decidely and unwelcomingly bitter. mmather (185) - Colorado, USA - APR 10, 2008
Average German style Dunkel. Would like to see a bit more caramel flavors in this one. The dunkel character seemed muted in this brew. Still better than the the vast majority of US attempts at the style, but a bit disappointing for a German edition. TheBeerOrg (2145) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - APR 8, 2008
Pours ruby with a mostly receding tan head. Aroma of thick malty toffee, bready, toasted malt, brown sugar. Taste of dark malt, bread, spice, and crackers. Medium to full bodied with moderate carbonation. Almost breadlike.
