Pours a dark reddish brown with thick, tan head.

Smell is malty and bready with some sweet hints. Notes of brown bread, honey, toast, citrus and some hints of leather and tobacco.

Taste is malty, bready and a bit sweet. Notes of brown bread, toast, honey, plums and citrus. Solid bitterness with some floral hints on the finish.

Mouthfeel is medium, soft, smooth and well carbonated.

Overall, a terrific dark lager, rich, sweet and drinkable.

330ml bottle into a pint glass. Complicated dating no help in determining age.

Black body, small off white head, light lacing. Dark malty aroma, taste follows, but body is quite light.

Darkish, not much head. Kinda smells like Coco Puffs cereal. Dark and roasty, sweet and spicy, malty and nutty. Definitely some chocolate in there, but the right amount. Just a hint of dark fruit. All these malty and dark flavors, but not overly sweet or heavy. Very easy to enjoy and appreciate

11.2 oz bottle into a 12 oz Becher.
L: Pours clear dark burnished mahogany copper with a 1"+ khaki rocky/creamy head that has very good retention, light fine carbo, random skeletal lacing.
S: Toasted roasty malts, toffee, dark fruits, dates, a hint of spicy hops, brown soda bread.
T: Caramelized malts, light citrus zest, a hint of chocolate, very lightly metallic, plum, raisins, dates, light fig, brown soda bread, sea salt, light char. Cocoa aftertaste with a light linger.
F: Smooth medium-bodied with a medium-long moderately dry finish and a flavorful linger.
O: Overall lightly fruity with a touch of chocolate & dark fruits. Beautifully balanced sweet/bitter. A fantastic tasting beer in every way. Would love this with grilled seafood. Its pleasantly dry finish makes this a very easy drinking beer that is outstanding in its style.

1st, this beer is not from Munich as someone posted. It is from Regensburg & I drink it every time I'm there. I rate this as one of the top 3 beers in the world & other top ten ratings always include it - usually in the top 5. It is to this day brewed by monks in a working Benedictine monastery (kloster) that has been brewing this since the year 1050 - yep, before William conquered England.. The monastery itself is on the Danube River half hr. south of Regensburg. You can pray with the monks & drink their rich dunkel beer. It is bottled & in Germany has a reach of only about 50 km from Regensburg where readily available. Obviously it's the monastery's main income source.

Pours a beautiful chestnut brown. Bready, sweet, caramel malt. Rich flavor but an approachable, easy drinking beer. Fantastic version of the style, but it’s from Munich so it’s only natural!

Mostly clear medium body with two fingers of tan foam, decent bands of lacing. Smell is actually quite good: darker nuts, earth, brown bread, drying leaves and a hint of toasted caramel. Taste still has the nuts and leaves with bready earth supporting the sweeter malt, but there is a hint of rust in there too on some sips, too bad. Feel is medium bodied, smooth, more dry than wet, and generally soft

Drunk in June 2022

Look: lovely amber/brown colour with a beige, persistent head, and lacing down the glass

Nose: sweet, bready malt, some brown sugar.

Taste: dark bread, sweet malt, brown sugar, and the slightest touch of roastiness. Mild bitterness. Very, very nice!

Feel: smooth, with medium carbonation.

Overall: this is an extremely enjoyable beer. As with all traditional beer in Germany, it's designed for repeated drinking without boring or destroying the palate, and it walks that line brilliantly.
