I've also used it in a stout but the flavour of it got buried in the roast barley and choc malt to a large degree.
I don't think it is the same as caramunich, which my LHBS also sells. I tried to look at their sight to at least compare lovibond but they have been offline for a few days.

I'm using it now in my Bohemian Pilsner, but I just put 1/2lb in to a 12lb grain bill. I tasted it before it went in to the primary and though it was a good flavor, but I bet the Dark Munich did not lend too much to the flavor of the beer.

I'll keep you posted.

I usually substitute belgian aromatic for dark munich unless I am going for a 100% german grain bill. Dark munich and aromatic are both low in enzymatic activity and cannot convert crystal malts well.

I personally have been interested in trying it for some time.

Northern Brewer says it's a base malt:

Durst Dark Munich. 15.5° L. Darker than regular Munich malt, this will add color and a strong malt flavor to beer. Great for dark lagers. Mix this base malt with other base malts for a complex malt flavor and deeper color.

Default Munich taste

If you want to taste Munich Malt then try tasting a traditional Bock beer if you can find one. They usually have anywhere from 70 to 100 % Munich for the grain bill. It has a very rich sweet toasty flavor which you may or may not like.
