500 ml can of Herrnbräu Publiner Dunkles Exportbier with "Irish in the character" on the can. Production date of July 2015 and BB date of Sept. 2016 stamped on the bottom of the can.

Apparently, as the look (clear, dark reddish-brown) and flavor indicate, this is a German made Irish Red Ale. In any case, it very malty and lightly sweet with hints of caramel, vanilla and faint spices. Lots of dark bread flavor.

Poured from a can into a pint glass
Appearance – The beer pours a brick red color with a two finger head of off white foam. The head has a fantastic level of retention, slowly fading over time to leave a ton of foamy lace on the sides of the glass.
Smell – The aroma of the brew is strongest of a roasted malt smell mixed with some cherry and molasses. Along with these stronger aromas comes a little bit of harvest fruit and a touch of yeast.
Taste- The taste begins with a toasted malt, brown bread flavor that has a decent level of a caramel and molasses. There is a touch of nuttiness as well as a little bit of earthy hop, which with the rest take the taste to its end and leave one with a moderately dark and sweet taste to linger on the tongue.
Mouthfeel – The body of the brew is average in thickness and creaminess with a carbonation that is average. For the style and the tastes the moderateness is good and makes for an easy drinking, and flavorful brew overall.
Overall – A rather decent, more “dark” Irish red. Fun to try, but nothing super out of the ordinary.

Appearance: Deep amber in color, with a prominent dense, off-white head. Belgian-style lacing decorates the glass wall.

Aroma: Dark bread, caramel, and herbal hops dominate the aroma. There are some moderate dark fruit notes, but these are quite understated. The hops are slight, and herbal in character.

Taste: Opens with strong notes of dark caramel. Soon after, dark bread notes appear, as well as slight hints of molasses. There is an undercurrent of dark fruit, perhaps plums, though lesser than the bread and caramel notes. Overall, the flavor comes across as fairly sweet. Finishes with a slight dry note.

Mouth feel: Soft and pleasant, very full.

Drinkability/notes: A nice, very well-crafted, and drinkable example.

Presentation: Packaged in a 500 ml, 16.9 ounce steel can, served in a South American-style Pilsener glass. Beer number eighteen (December 18th) from the 2017 Costco Advent Beer Calendar.

Sudsy and attractive brown amber in the glass. The first sip reveals the dishwatery sweetness. There is a passing resemblance to watered-down pineapple juice. There seems to be no hint of hops. Do they brew up some Malta sweet non-alcoholic malt beverage, and then top off a cheap lager? If this is an authentic German Dunkles I say to hell with it. From the 500 ml can.

The flavors do not mix together well. Lots of head on the pour that quickly dissipates.

From the advent box. Poured into a snifter. Great look to this beer. There was a clear copper color with a thick and long-lasting tan head. Muted aroma but with slightly spicy malt and raisins. The flavor was there but this tasted a bit watered down and thin. A slight metallic taste on the finish as well.

500 ml can poured into a pint glass, a dark reddish brown with a two finger tan head that dissipates slowly. Advent day 18. The federation has crossed into.....Aroma is dunkel maltiness, and some herbal/bread notes. The taste follows in line, very light. The feel is medium, the carbonation medium light. Overall, a good beer, if you are into maltiness.

Pours a dark brown with a hint of burgundy. Head is khaki in color and foams up to two fingers in height, with good retention and lacing. Aroma is malty, hitting notes of biscuit, bread, musk, and earthy. It's hearty, but not in the American traditional sense. Flavor profile is more malts bundled up close. Malts are biscuit, bread, and earth. Mouth feel is a little dry with a medium thickness. Overall, it sips clean and dry all while hitting hearty, earthy malt notes.

Served in a 12oz snifter from a 16oz can.

From Costco. Can. In Bavaria hefe glass. Playing Bioshock Remastered. Light, with very pleasant sweet, roasty notes that although at first seemed flat, later became much better and I left me craving for more. Ultradrinkable

Served in a tulip glass right from the can.

Appearance: Dark Amber color with semi cloudy body to it. Lightly off-white head rising maybe one finger's lengthoff the body.

Smell: Smells like light hops and light malts. Not much to sniff.

Taste: Light bitterness and smooth malts, has a sweet offset which reminds me a bit of pink grapefruit and a hint of maple.

Mouth: medium to heavy carbonation with average stickiness at best.

Overall: It's alright at best, little biased when it comes to dunkles...when you're used to drinking espresso and someone offers you decaf coffee, you get my drift. Salud!
