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.

Pours out of the bottle an almost red light brown color. Its head is surprisingly large bubbles that dissipate rather quickly. It has a slightly roasting malt aroma. It has a rather nice malty taste with a nice balance of hops. A bit light for a dark beer. Had a light mouth with a slightly hops aftertaste. A nice beer for an afternoon thirst quencher.

From bottle, Red-tinged brown beer, beige head. Nose is malty, bready, some caramel in there, toasty-burned notes. Flavor is toasty malt, sweetness, some burned bitterness in the dry finish.

At the beer garden below Ludwig's castle (Neuschwanstein).
Dark, check. Smells like beer, check. Malt forward, easy drinking, check. Decent but forgettable, check.
