When Prince Luitpold of Bavaria took over the König Ludwig Schloßbrauerei Kaltenberg, the beer market at the time revolved mainly around lean, crispy bitter Pilsner. This style has long been the favorite beer of the Germans and could not be more contrary to what the prince chose as a hobby for his brewery. Instead of dedicating himself to light-footed light brews, he made the renaissance of dark beer his task. With this decision, he continued the heyday of the Prince Regents and triggered a change in the German beer market. His König Ludwig Dunkel is one of the most popular of its kind today and has achieved real cult status.
Dark barley malt is responsible for the strong chestnut brown and the creamy caramel note. According to old tradition, this exquisite raw material is married in classic copper brewing pans with the finest aroma hops and processed into a sensual pleasure. The balanced dark combines a delicate tartness with floral hints of hops, a deep roasted aroma, delicately melting toffee, freshly brewed coffee and a hint of red dried fruit. The crowning glory is an elegant bitterness that is reminiscent of the coffee beans that have just been roasted.
If you are looking for a tasty beer with a velvety texture, soft sweetness, delicate tartness and great roasted notes, you will make the right choice with König Ludwig Dunkel from the Schloßbrauerei Kaltenberg!
