I love dark beers, especially dark German beers and one dark Dutch beer. Some of my other favorites are Beck's dark, St. Pauli Girl dark and Heineken dark. However, having discovered the Premium Dunkel, Warsteiner's dark, I've been in heaven. It has that slightly bitter after taste like Guiness, but not as strong or as overpowering, yet still yielding that deep and rich flavor that only a dark beer can offer. So, unlike Guiness, one can put away several of these whereas one can only consume a couple of Guiness stouts. If you haven't tried it, I highly recommend it.

This is my favorite style of beer so my review may reflect that. But this is my favorite beer, period. It pours out dark like coffee into my pint glass and a thin light tan head forms. The head disappears somewhat quickly. It smells perfect. Exactly like a beer should smell. Roasted malt and minimal hops. I love beers that don't try to create all kinds of different flavors. I'm a fan of the German Purity Law of 1516. There seems to be a low amount of carbonation. Just a tiny bit flat. If I were to participate in BEERFEST this would be the beer I would want to consume. Great beer. Reinheitsgebot is best.

What a freakin' pleasant brew. Their Premium Verum is a pleasant enough beer, but there is a harsh-hop aspect to it that prevents pure, zen-like drinkability. The extra dark maltiness present in this beer off-sets that hoppiness perfectly, resulting in a complex, round, full beer. Why intellectualize a product that defies thought? Next time you see it, buy it, drink it, and enjoy a transcendent experience.
This is not a perfect beer, but it is a perfectly drinkable beer. Complex, yet simple, it explores the world of your tongue without challenging or offending it. This is why we drink beer. Prost!

Poured from bottle into a trademark Hofbrau dimpled mug(fits the bill for this type of beer!)

A: Dark brown, a good amount of lacing, a half an inch head that lasts a short while

S: Smells of maple, a hint of vanilla, and definitely fresh grain. I like! Better than Warsteiner Verum

T: Tastes of vanilla, roasted malts...FRESH roasted malts if you will, and of FRESH water! I really like!

M: Feels great..tastes great.I really enjoy this "light" dark brew!

D: I can drink many of these without even noticing. Not too heavy and not too light. Overall a VERY delicious brew. One thing that strikes me immediately is the taste of FRESH water. The water makes the whole difference in this classy dark brew. Don't miss out on it!

Had this with bratwurst, red roasted potatoes, and some veggie chips--awesome!

Serving type: On bottle and I've had it on tap before

Excellent Beer. Generally available at only $24 per case. A heck of a nice deal, versus MANY other beers that cost $32-40 per case. Even better on tap, at a nice German place nearby (newportville inn). Their food is just GREAT. Especially the homemade mustard, turtle soup, and meatballs with spatzle
