One of the worst dunkels I’ve ever had. Slightly roasty but other than that it wasn’t good. I ended up pouring part of the beer out. Look smell and feel we’re average.

Good beer, great roasted malt flavor but lacks depth.
The look is nice. Elegant bottle design that is simple. The beer is presented well. The aromas coming from this brew is very pleasant. A soft woft of Hershey's chocolate syrup with a underlying Pilsner malt nose. The taste is good however, im not satisfied. At the top you get a average roast with minimal sweetness. The flavor falls into a bland malt that carries you to a dull finish. All along you get a roasted maltiness and a tad of hop but nothing really speaks out. The after taste is irony with green beans. The feel is also lacking. Very watery, light with barely a prickle of carbonation. Although this is a relatively good beer, I find it falls short. Overall marginally good. Needs some top-end sweetness, more roasted malt and dialed up hops.

This was a surprise. I've had another beer from Warsteiner many years ago and wasn't impressed by it, but this bottle was in the bargain singles bucket at a local liquor store so I decided to give it a try and I'm glad I did.

This beer is a great example of a style that is out of fashion right now - rich and malty but not cloying, toasty but not bitter, sessionable alcohol range. I love my hop monsters too, but tonight I enjoyed the toastyness, the rich brown bread notes, the balance.

An odd comparison --- this beer seemed like the beer that Shiner Bock could have been, but didn't go all the way to become.

I will look for this one again. It was nice to be surprised in a good way.

Great tasting lager! The roasted malt taste is just right and smooth taste has just a hint of bitterness.

One of the better ones I have tried for sure. I’m a big fan of the darker brews and this one really takes the cake on flavor.

Dark and bitter. Quite enjoyable. Update: Just had another, and I can confirm that, yes, this is good stuff. Not as bitter as last time, so even better. Get more! circa 2008

Clear and dark with robust lacy head,
Roast grain the predominate flavor,
Faint malty aroma,
Overall a good, well balanced beer with a bit of sparkle on the tip of the tongue, it does come across a little flat on the swallow.

Lush bread and mild apple and light minerality. The nose is quiet, feel is brisk. Finish is subtly dry, with solid carbonation that keeps it all clean and bright. Delicious.
