Rich roasted malt flavor. Head dissappears quite fast. Carmel color. Light barley smell. I was in love with the first sip.

This is and has been my go to beer of choice for years. Being from Texas, where Shiner is the king, Warsteiner Dunkel is a step above. I first tried it in Germany, and have been in love since 2003. I now keep a keg on tap at all times.

A nut and apple aroma,taste was slightly similar. This just wasn't that impressive,I didn't even finish it. It just didn't come together and wasn't impressive in any category

Poured into a lager glass, the appearance was a ruddy burnt dark amber close to brown color with a thin finger’s worth of white foamy head that dissipated immediately. Some light stringy lacing glosses along the sides of the glass. The aroma starts off with a sweet bready to red delicious apples blending upon subtle tones of cocoa powder. The flavor embraces the bready sweet malts initially and then brings about the apples and cocoa. Nice semi-sticky bready sweet aftertaste yielding to a refined sliding finish. On the palate, this one sat about a light on the body with a nice sessionability about it. Low carbonation. Clean lager smoothness rolls over my tongue. Overall, an absolutely wonderful Munich Dunkel lager that I would love to have again, preferably with its food.

330 ml bottle. Not much aroma to speak of. Dark brown with a nice head, which dissipates half way through the glass. Flavor is boring. Very unimpressed.

This beer pours a clearish deep amber brown color with a huge, frothy off white head. Retention is excellent, but there is barely any lacing to speak of.

Smell is very plain and one dimensional. There is a nuttiness and toasted grain and that's about it. You really have to agitate the beer to get anything more than a hint of aroma.

Taste is the same. Nutty, a touch of sweetness and toasted malts. Really unspectacular.

Feel is the worst part of this beer. It is so under carbonated that it feels like I'm drinking flavored water.

Overall this beer is not good. At first I thought it was old or expired, but the best by date is December 2017 and right now it's only June. Unenjoyable to say the least.

As a coffee nut I still find this overly bitter....it's like roasterie coffee...you can taste many good flavors but they are coated by a burnt feel and taste.
