Mine was under the the name "Dunkel" not dark. Served ice cold on tap, had to let it warm up a touch before i could taste anything at all. Pretty simple stuff, light caramelly, with a kinda short finish, sweetish, with minimal bitterness. Uncomplex and pretty easy to drink.

Dark brown color, medium head. Nice malted, slightly roasted malts, some malt sweetness. Good hop balance. Nice flavor, perhaps a little mild? . Mouthfeel is full. The "original Munich formula". A change from the Lowenbrau of a few years ago? Very nice. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is malty, slightly bitter.

I would classify this as a Schwarzbier or a Munich Dunkel, although it is definitely not up to par with most of either variety. This is a very unobtrusive brew, but it needs more of a kick to be anything special. Mild malty flavor, very dark with a minimal head and lacing.

Pretty standard fare here, used to be a dirt cheap sixer back in the day. Seems harder to come across now. Weak aroma very grainy, nice dark pour moderate head. Very quenching and drinkable. Flavor has some bite to it, good maltiness and very little hop presence. Average dunkel but decent for the buck.

A dark mahogany colour with hint of ruby, bordering on black with a thin cap after the huge, brownish-white head fades away.
Clean smelling. A mix of roasted malts & caramel with not much else that is noticeable. It could have done wilth be a little more complex.
Not the most complex dunkel but it's not a bad beer. Roasted malts & barely account for most of the flavour with a little sweetness in the background with some caramel, then a semi-bitter finish.
Smooth with a light fizz in a beer that is on the light side of medium bodied. It goes down well, but not overly.
A pretty average dunkel here in most respects, it is pleasant enough but it is also pretty straightforward & lacking in complexity.

3.45/5 rDev -4.2%
Brewed in Russia by InBev, 4.5% ABV.
Pours dark brown beer with two-finger bubbly beige head. Good caramel aroma and a taste is caramel too, slightly roasted. Well-balanced bitterness, light body, moderate carbonation. A water of the brew seems not very well to me. That's probably a difference between original german beer and local licensed. Anyway, it's a good one.

3.5/5 rDev -2.8%
A: Deep mahogany color with a fizzy tan head. OK head retention. Leaves a bit of lace.
S: Mostly dark roasted malt scents. Maybe a touch of grass.
T: Simple and straightforward. Dark malts dominate with a roasted flavor that sits on top of more subdued pale malts. Bitterness is just high enough to balance, but doesn't add a ton of flavor. Finishes with a lingering bready flavor.
M: Medium-light body has a bit too much fizz.
D: not spectacular, but still pretty decent. I wouldn't turn this down if it were offered to me.
