Pours a crystal clear, nut-brown colored beer, with a decent, foamy eggshell head.

Smells of toffee malts and whole grain bread, together with a caramel note and a pleasant earthy whiff.

Drinks very smooth, while offering a medium carbonation, which balances the profound malts with a mineralic quality during the ending.

Tastes of soft, rustic whole grain bread, together with a bakers chocolate earth note, from which sweet molasses evolve. Molasses become more intense and dominating, developing a candied caramel character. Finishes earthier, more balanced than during the middle part, while the beer remains it sweet profile in general.

Quite sweet, while not providing a lot of depth, other from its distinct maltiness.

Had at the Biergarten in Munich. Augustiner was the host brewery. Many having a dunkel in the bottom, and being a follower I had one as well. Poured a dark Carmely color but the head maintained a consistent level - continued lacing which people feel seems to matter.

Anyways, I will pretend I got a lot of caramel and chocolate....I think I did. Overall this beer was so smooth and just consistently good. There are not many dunkels I go for in the U.S....will need to keep my sights on this

Clear brownish color, off-white head. Aroma has toasted malt and light caramel. Taste is well balanced, slightly sweet at first but the finish has a soft earthy hop bitterness. Medium to light body and carbonation. Decent, quite easy drinking and refreshing for a dark beer.
