Prom the Advent box. Poured into a snifter. A clear chestnut brown color - fairly dark in the snifter. Nice thick and dense tan head. Bread, caramel, stone fruit on the nose. The taste followed fairly closely with a rich malty flavor. Dark bread, toffee, caramel. Minimal bitterness. Soft feel and medium-bodied. Very nice. Favorite from the box thus far.

Poured into a tall wheat glass at 45 degrees:

L: caramelly plum amber with half inch of wicked forestry foam

A: marzen Oktoberfest caramelized malts

F: medium creamy malts that comes out very smooth, no lingering flavor. Fades quickly.

T: caramelly malts with slight alcohol tingle that quickly fades. Sweet and smooth yet not overly sweet. Flavor comes and goes but continuously want another sip. No gulping, sip and savor.

O: 2nd favorite so far from the calendar

I love a dunkel. This is ok but a bit thin on the finish. Should be better but .....

Pours a dark brown with a finger and a half of khaki foam on top. Head retention is fair, with a few dots of lacing left behind. Aroma is bread, biscuit, and earthy malts layered over herbal and floral hops and wheat. Flavor profile has a dose of chocolate before heading to biscuit, bread, and earth malts. Herbal and floral hops are still present, but light. Mouth feel is medium in thickness with a nice, smooth, and slightly-creamy texture. Overall, a straight forward dunkel lager that provides a nice dose of flavor while remaining a quaffable beer.

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

This Dunkel lager poured a dark, ruby-tinted brown color, around a 20 on the SRM scale. The BJCP mentions the style as having a copper brown color with a red tint; this seems fair to me. It poured with some noticeable head, but it quickly dissipated. Almost no head remained, and there is very little lacing. It is not particularly clear, but I suspect that has more to do with the color.

Up front is an immediate sweetness, almost cloying on the first sip. It is quickly balanced with some light bitterness, but I do not get any specific hop flavor. The malt has a lot going on, including chocolate and toffee notes. There is a breadiness as well, but it's almost in the way Altbayrisch coats the mouth. The carbonation is medium to medium low.

Overall, I quite enjoyed Altbayrisch. It's weather appropriate, as there is snow outside my window. It is well-balanced leaning towards sweet, with a fair amount of nuance in the malt. I'd recommend knocking one back on a cold winter night.
