Had it on tap at Bottlecraft Little Italy, San Diego.
It's a dunkel, but somehow it was extremely sweet and viscous, just like but not up to a doppelbock. Smell and taste was full of dominantly molasses and some dark fruits too.

I just had the Weltenburger Kloster Barock Dunkel. It is quite good mild dark beer I had for the first time.

Look: Dark brown, thin mocca head.

Aroma: rye bread, maybe some sweet caramel

Taste: It's malty, sweet rye bread or pumpernickel bread, caramel, no alcohol taste, not much bitterness.

Feel: medium body, rich

Pours a ruddy nut brown color. Mostly clear. Two finger tan head dissipates steadily but never completely. A thin layer of velvety tan foam is left behind.

Smell has notes of bread, pumpernickel, slight yeast, earthy hops and some nutty caramel notes.

Taste follows the nose with lots of pumpernickel bread, maybe a touch of rye with some pepper, spice and yeast and caramel. Earthy hops provide some balance on the finish with a dry touch.

Feel is light and drinkable. Fizzy carbonation. Smooth finish with a nice semi-dryness.

Overall a nice dunkel.

Found this at a market while in Germany. Loved everything about it. Took a trip to the historic Weltenburg Abbey and enjoined the world best dunkel beer. My favorite beer!

Pours clear, dark leather brown in color with 1/4 inch head. Taste is pumpernickel bread, wheat, and caramel. Medium bodied, clean, slightly sweet with low carbonation. Makes for an above average, solid, and very enjoyable lager.

Pours a clear brown with reddish hue and a medium head that dissipates to a thin layer. Nose is quite malty with some brown bread and molasses...certainly the nose of a beer that is much bigger than 4.7%. Taste is more traditional and subdues with lighter syrupy malts and a touch of residual sweetness. Overall, a pretty good beer.

Enjoyed on draft at the Munich Haus in Chicopee poured in a proper 1/2 liter mug
A - Shade tobacco colored back drop, massive mocha cap, carbonation is steady and unrelenting.
S - Light smoked malt, a touch of roast, and caramel
T - Very much like the nose, a bit more munich malt on the palate.
M - Near perfect, dances across the palate, leaves a semi sweet, dry finish.
O - A German delight, so glad to have had the offering at a place that is careful how they treat their lagers.
