This pours a clear mahogany colour with a firm 1" head of white foam.

The smell is that of what dark malts bring to the table. An aromatic mix of roasted and grainy malts that has a lovely sweetness to it. The sweet almost smells fruity, like black cherries.

No fruit in the taste at all. Just solid roasted malt flavour with grain ad a light sweet note here and there. Not particularly bitter nor sweet. In between I'd say.

Medium body, lightish carbonation.

A solid if not great example of the style, imho.

Lost my ratings on this beer, but I remember it was pretty good overall. The flavor was pretty tasty and mostly spot on for a German Dunkel.

I had it with dinner at the Hotel Restaurant across the street from Kloster Ettal.

Good beer.

Disregard the A, S, T, M scores. I didn't want to affect the overall score.

Great dunkel in my opinion. Not too pricey for the delicious taste of this brew. I am no pro with beer tasting but with dunkels I get this almost banana like taste and this one delivers in that respect. Sugary and smooth. Highly recommended by this nobody.

500ml Bottle, just out of date when poured into my 'Judas' stemmed massive tulip glass on 4 Apr 2013.

Looked really great: a reddy, mahogany brown body with a very large head of foam on top.

Malty notes hit your nose: sweet molasses, caramel and toffee hints come through more and more as the beer warmed in the glass.

Those same sweet malty aromas are also within the taste, this is a sweet brew:most likely the sweetest beer in this style I've had so far.

Body suits the alcohol content and overall a pleasant and easy drinking beer.
