On-tap at Paulaner im Tal, on to the beer:

This dunkel lager is chestnut colored with red hues, topped with a creamy inch of head with acceptable retention. Its aroma bring a note of caramel bread, nuts, some husk. Tasting brings a powdery dark malt flavor, which is complemented with pumpernickel and a hint of cocoa. A bit on the sweeter side. It's medium bodied and with a smooth body. It isn't quite at the high level set by other Munich breweries, though it still remains as a an acceptable dunkel.

Half-litre in Maximilian's, Berlin on 22 Feb 2013.

Really enjoyed this: reddy-brown colouring with a good full head of off-white foam which tried to hang around for a while.

Malty nose: woody, nutty, with caramel notes, earthy too.

The taste was also malty: bready and biscuity, not overly sweet compared to some Dunkel brews. Body depth seemed deeper than most also. Coffee and chocolate hints arrive as the beer warms a little, not that I allowed the beer to warm much, I was drinking it too fast!
