It's getting darker in Munich - Augustiner Dunkel

Augustiner Dunkel

During the school time the apprentice brewers of the other Munich breweries, Paulander, Spaten and Löwenbräu asked the teacher about a rumor they have heard from the higher grades. They were asking if it is true that the Augustiner brewery is having a special deal with some special pubs in Munich. The teacher didn't know the answer or didn't want to answer. I guess later is the truth.

The truth about the Augustiner Dunkles lies in the eye of the beholder. From my point of view it smells malty, caramel, and roasted. This brings us straight to the taste which is mainly sweet and little bitter. Its body is probably a little to strong. The taste stays for a while... which I didn't like that much.

All in all a common Dunkles but far beyond the Edelstoff.
