At Paulaner Marienplatz Munich. Excellent Dunkel. Don't think I'll find an IPA so this will have to do. Pretty good actually.

A smooth dunkel bier. Had it while over in Germany. The color and smell are great, but the taste is better. My second favorite dunkel beer behind Weltenburger Barock Dunkel. It's not an easy beer to find, even in Germany.

Half-litre in Maximilian's, Berlin on 22 Feb 2013.

Really enjoyed this: reddy-brown colouring with a good full head of off-white foam which tried to hang around for a while.

Malty nose: woody, nutty, with caramel notes, earthy too.

The taste was also malty: bready and biscuity, not overly sweet compared to some Dunkel brews. Body depth seemed deeper than most also. Coffee and chocolate hints arrive as the beer warms a little, not that I allowed the beer to warm much, I was drinking it too fast!

Found on tap at the "Beerhouse" in Moscow, which claims to have an exclusive. Certainly I've never seen it elsewhere. The waitress brought it in a Paulaner Weizenglas - sigh - but it looked mighty fine nonetheless. Dark caramel under a 1.5 finger beige-tan head with some good staying power and nice lacing. A mild caramel scent with hints of rye bread greets the nose. The mouth is very prickly and a tad too light for this style. The taste is mild (maybe also a bit too mild) but good caramel malt, with a nice soft hoppy bite that leaves a crisp dry feel in the jowels. This is a good session beer, although a Dunkles is allowed to be a touch bolder.
