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.

.5L flask on tap at Augustiner Keller in Munich.

Clear dark brown with orange and red highlights, and visible carbonation. Tan head is moderately thick and quite durable. Patchy lacing left on glass.

Aroma: simple and light aroma of medium malt with some faint floral hops.

T: Nicely malty and flavorful; very good sweet/bitter balance.

M: smooth; medium body; medium carbonation.

O: excellent example of style.

500 ml bottle just slightly past the declared BB date (06. 2012). Dark coppery-brown body with garnet tint and good clarity gets overlain by rather thin light-tan head that dissipates. Sweet aroma of caramel, chocolate, bread crust and nutty notes transfers to the flavor. The beer that lacks any inappropriate intense roasted flavors starts malty but never gets cloying and finishes dry with hop-bitterness and mild nutty aftertaste.
Creamy with sufficient carbonation teasing the palate. Very good.
