One of Munich's best beers which is saying much. This beer is for the true daily beer lovers. I wouldn't say it's as smooth as many a Belgium beers but the Dunkel version is something to look forward to. A great tasting full body beer and can be drank in large amounts as I can attest to. I was a recipient of generosity by the Augustiner brew master for we bought direct a 50L keg and brought it back to the states. To say the American beer drinkers were in ahhh of this brew is an understatement.

500ml Bottle: BBD Mar/14. Opened at the second ever Shrewsbury Bottle Share on 24th Feb 2014. Four of us partook in drinking this, an offering from my good self.

I've complained before about weak and watery Dunkel brews from Germany and beyond: no such worries with this lovely beer, it's far from weak or watery in nature.

Good looking brew too: very dark amber leaning towards brown with a mini red hue, on top a full and lasting head.

Sweet malty molasses rule the nose and taste, something my sweet tooth tends to like. Nothing complicated or special about this, but it is one of the better Dunkel beers I've come across so far.

It's not rich or creamy body wise but it carried the flavours nicely and is well worth trying if you get the chance.

,5L for €3,90 at noon on Christmas day 2013

Dark nut-brown body beneath a vanilla-white head. Clear. Very good head retention and lacing. Burnt, roasty, and nutty in the nose with a hint of fruit and coffee beans. Roasty and toasty in the mouth with a small amount of dark chocolate, more nuts than the nose suggests, and a bit of fruit (mainly raisin). Medium bodied. Smooth, gently crisp carbonation.

A dark brown beer with an enormous head.

The smell is very malty with notes of dark bread crust and a grainy smell. There is an 'green' edge to the beer that is a bit sharp.

The taste is malty with the specialty malts like munich giving the beer a deep taste. The maltiness is not as deep as I expected. The beer is sweet but not cloying, mouthfeel lacks a bit in depth. Bitterness is low.
