On-tap at Augustiner am Platzl, on to the beer:

Augustiner Dunkel features a ruby brown/chestnut color with reddish hues as it sits inside the mug. The head on top is fluffy, retains well, and gives off several waves of lacing. The nose is a sign of good things to come, with raisin, unsweetened chocoalte, and a touch of cocoa. Despite the sweet flavors, they're contained well and don't spoil the palate. Similar is the taste, which is a lovely taste of chocolate covered raisin and a note of dark chocolate as an extra layer, again well balanced. It's medium bodied with moderate carbonation.

A very pleasant dunkel lager. This is a classic and worthy drink in the Munich tradition.

One of Munich's best beers which is saying much. This beer is for the true daily beer lovers. I wouldn't say it's as smooth as many a Belgium beers but the Dunkel version is something to look forward to. A great tasting full body beer and can be drank in large amounts as I can attest to. I was a recipient of generosity by the Augustiner brew master for we bought direct a 50L keg and brought it back to the states. To say the American beer drinkers were in ahhh of this brew is an understatement.
