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.

A 500ml Euro Bomber poured into a shaker pint glass.

Appearance - A muddy brown color with a fine, tan head. Good stickage.

Smell - Malty. Sweet. Slight whiff of chocolate. Nutty.

Taste - Malty. Semi-sweet chocolate. Carmel. Mild toasty flavor. A touch acidic. Walnuts. Minimal hop presence.

Mouth - Slick. Average carbonation.

Overall - A smooth, complex, delicious lager that could only come from Germany. Here in Southern California, this is not an easy beer to find (Jagerhaus, in Anaheim, sells it in the bottle or on tap). Go find some. It's worth the effort.

A: Poured from a bottle to a pilsner glass. Had a brown color and a clear consistency. There was a big, creamy, long-lasting head. Excellent lacing.

S: A very average aroma of malt and some spicy hops.

T: Tasted of heavy roasted malt, a little caramel, and some spicy hops. A big problem here is that the flavor is very thin and not at all dynamic. A bit underwhelming.

M: A well-carbonated beer with a smooth finish. Medium-bodied.

O: This is a beer with some good qualities that doesn't quite make it. Not the worst dunkel I've had, but not the best either.

Decent Dunkel Lager. Coffee and caramel flavor. Easy to drink, not too much carbonation.
