L: Poured fairly clear, dark brown, yellowish/tan head with short retention and slight lacing.

S: The aroma possessed a hint of caramel malt with relatively light earthy hops and a deliciously clean lager character.

T: Medium hops and light bitterness balanced by a slight sweet finish. Light caramel tone in the after. Incredibly clean and fresh.

This beer is incredibly crisp, easy to session and delicious to boot. Can't wait to have another!!

amazing, a dark beer for the regular drinker that is brewed traditionally like a dark should be. there is finally a dark beer i can drink until the sun comes up. No aussie dark lager can compete, smooth, light, malty goodness. the bartender said the tap was 4.6% ABV, looking forward to accompanying this beer with winter food. i think this is the same beer as the arcobrau dark lager.

Most excellent German Dunkel. Was lucky
enough to be at the Brauhaus Schmitz in Philly when they tapped this keg, first time in US I believe. The bartender suggested this beer and
gave out samples, everybody that tasted it got
one, it was that good.
Poured a rich brown color with a nice
foamy head. Taste was outstanding, caramel,
malty goodness.
Still light enough to be a good summer/session beer.
I am a big fan of the dunkels, i've had the
best, spatan, warsteiner, Ayinger,Hofbrau,
in my opinion the Arcobrau is the best of the
bunch, far better than any American dunkel.

APPEARANCE: Very dark amber with bright orange light peering through the perimeters of the Pilsner glass. Creamy beige head with a scattering of large irridescent bubbles. Classy lacing.

SMELL: Metallic roasted Malt and caramel.

TASTE: Metallic roasted malt offset by lovely dark caramel and walnut. A quality, well rounded flavour. Not overly complex but not simple either. Reminiscent of the König Ludwig Dunkel but smoother.

OVERALL: For a Dunkelweizen it's incredibly dark and strong tasting. Has a classic German flavour profile which occurs in all types of German ales and lagers. It may not take you to heaven and back but it's still very sound. I highly recommend the hefe-weisse.

First off this is a Dunkel not a Dunkleweizen. Bought in a 500 ml bottle in Korea.

A: Pours out with a deep mahogany brown, little yellowish head that dissipates quickly, and even small bubbled carbonation.

S: Roasted malts and metal

T: Rich malted barley up front and through out, earthy Tettnager hops, and grassy grains.

M: The true balance that a Dunkel Lager brings, not drying but not too wet either. You feel refreshed by its balance of bitter and sweet, dry and wet, finished with a nice watery finish. Suitable for all seasons.

Overall: Solid beer overall. No complaints here as it truly represents a standard Dunkel Lager.
