*Reviewed on 24.04.2005

The beer pours a classic chocolatey base with a medium white head, solid retention and some nice lacing to follow. One-dimensional smell of toasted malts…

The taste has a bit roasted malt depth than the smell, maybe a light touch of caramel but nothing more. The aftertaste is a bit weird of this one, but other than that it feels great in the mouth and delivery. It’s a nice session dunkel, but I'd prefer Hofbrauhaus brand…

Final Thought: This is a solid dunkel with a little more depth than a Warsteiner's version…

Medium dark clear brown color. Foamy cream colored head. Stays around nicely. Mostly carmel smell matched with some hoppy bitterness. Taste is mild, mostly carmel malt. Sourness, very beerlike. After carmel malt taste, super shot of bitterness on the finish. Bitter finish is almost painful. Coffe undertones. Unexepected thin feel for a dark beer. Almost watery. Still very good, sweet start and bitter finish, not bad for the style. Cheers to my friend Heinz from Munich for bringing it all the way across the pond.
