Pours a clear brown producing 2 fingers of frothy, tan, shortlived head that leaves motes & streaks of thin lace.
Aroma is toasted malts, dark bread, cola caramel, molasses, dark fruit, nuts & a hint of dark chocolate. Taste is dark malts, molasses, coco, roasted nuts, dark fruit, a hint of orange slice candy & smoke with spicy grass & lemon hops in the finish. Aftertaste is cola caramel, toasted pumpernickel & spice. Mouthfeel is light-medium bodied with moderate carbonation, but smooth, low to medium carbonation, moderate prickle from mid-sip into finish, wet fronted, dry & lightly astringent aftertaste. A excellent example of the style.

The most well-balanced beer I've ever had. Easy to drink, yet sweet, nutty, and hoppy. You can't beat a well-balanced beer!

Poured from the bottle into a pokal/pilsner style glass.

Deep chestnut red and brown body, with excellent clarity and lots of rising carbonation. Matches with a creamy three finger head with excellent island top and retention. Falls evenly with some nice ring lacing and coating, just a great looker.

Mild toffee and great clove and brown spice warmth on the nose. Comes off like more of a bigger beer nearly doppelbock territory but not as sweet. Very solid, mild sense of bitter cocoa powder as well.

Palate comes very simply and nicely. Light bodied and hints of malted whoppers candy, mixed with almost a tea like herbality in the mid palate. Steely like finish but very tolerable, giving some nice milk chocolate flavors. Good sense of light crispness going on here, as the beer definitely hits and announces a tolerable easy drinking abv.

A solid very drinkable Munich Dunkel for sure.

500ml Bottle from Beers of Europe:
This one was another very nice beer from the brewery, I'm not entirely sure but my thinking is that last years came out slightly better but this one is still an excellent beer and one well worth picking up. The taste was a sweet and nutty one but certainly wasn't overdone and managed to strike a great balance as I sipped away at it for quite some time; good stuff.

Sampling right now on 12/11/14. Comes in a 500ml (16.9 ounce) bottle for around $3.50. Bottle chilled down to 36 degrees F in my beer cooler and poured in to a O.5L "Warsteiner" handled glass stein.

Pours a deep mahogany brown in color with ruby-red highlights. A good 1 to 2-finger foamy beige head is seen that settles down to about 2-3mm after a good bit. Lots of stick lacing is seen when sipped. The aroma is of sugary roasted malts with a hint of cocoa and caramel. Pretty much the same for the taste with some molasses as well as some dark fruit in the mix. Very tasty and smooth brew. Medium-bodied with perfect carbonation which isn't too much for this great German brew (World's Oldest Monastery from 1050 AD). Overall, really like this one.

Amber brown color with a thick one finger head with good retention.
Nice aroma of chocolates, mild licorice, light grains, nuts and caramels.
Flavor with notes of caramels, cocoa background, toasted malts, burnt coconut, cola, light wood and some nuts. Dry aftertaste with a mild bitterness towards the end and a lingering light toasted note.
Light towards medium body with active carbonation.
Straightforward Dunkel, but also flavorful and easy to drink. This beer was first produced over 150 years ago, I wonder how this licensed version brewed in Brazil compare to the German one. By the descriptions it seems to fairly match.

0,5 l bottle (bb 11.12.2014) into a pint glass. Clear ruby brown body, some bubbling, medium foam head with good retention and heavy lacing. Smell - sweet malt, with plum and raisins. Taste - begins with semi sweet malt and the same dark fruits as in the smell, followed by a taste of toasted malt that builds up in the mouth, ending dry with a slight hop bitterness. Soft malty taste with a hint of metal. Semi-light body, medium-low carbonation. Overall a good flavorful dunkel, went down well with over-cooked pork.
