Had 0.3L on draft at a hotel bar in Berlin. Arrived with a thick head atop a dark coffee colored body in a branded stein. Taste of roasted malt and faint cocoa. Easy to drink.

L: Dark sludgy honey, nice head that lingers, decent lacing
S: Rich banana and bubblegum smell, sweet, malts are caramel and light, bready and fresh
T: Very nice flavor, i get a peach malty sweet flavor mixed with the banana, much different than other Dunkelweizen's I've had but very nice. Not as malty as others. Flavor is very pleasant
F: Normal solid feel, finishes a little heavier but nice
O: A very enjoyable Dunkelweizen that is worth a try.

A Carmel light brown muggy look with a slight fizz, smells bready slighted sweet and smoky. Taste malty sweet banana clove spice. Mouth feel is smooth not heavy and not too lights slightly refreshing. Has a throaty hit I cannot describe. Very drinkable without being to filling.

L: dark brown color, clear, gives of a two fingertip high top of head that disolves quickly. Some lacings on the side of the glass.

S: bready, roasted malts is the main aroma , some hints of cofee and caramel.

T&F: much as it's aroma. Roasted malts,breads and caramel,a sweet taste over this dunkel. Some good balanced hop bitterness in the aftertaste. Actually very drinkable this beer but tought I think is a little to light for a dark beer.

O:a good and enjoyable dunkel, did not set the world on fire,but I enjoyed it. Very easy drinkable.i would trie it again if I get the chance.

Bought in a half-litre bottle. Pretty good Dunkel. It has a very rich roasted flavour, and is easy to drink, with a nice burnt aftertaste. A good example of a Munich Dunkel.
