ClubGonzo (5420) - Bergen, NORWAY - DEC 10, 2011
Bottle from Galeria Kaufhof, Alexanderplatz, Berlin. Dark bronze body, medium off-white head. Nose is grain, wort, caramel and dark malts. Taste is caramel, nuts, grains and hints of marzipan and dark malts. Medium-to-high carbonation. Some dry hops in the finish. A bit sweet, but nevertheless a solid German dunkel.

Bierkrug (2130) - - DEC 7, 2011
500 ml flip-top bottle picked up at Wasanas in Idar-Oberstein, Germany. Pours a brown color with a beige head. The taste is a sweet malty body with a pleasant and balanced bitterness. Palate ends a little thin.

EithCubes (5618) - New Jersey, USA - NOV 1, 2011
Swing-top bottle by 03.12. Sweet caramel nose. Ruby-chestnut pour with a fizzy tan head. Taste is sweet with low bitterness, has a rich caramel and toffee profile with pleasant nuttiness and more than a handful of Maillard graduates. Juicy light body is very malty, has earth tones and enough hops for balance. Touch of sour roast. There’s a bit of a stale note keeping it from getting a quality rating of "süffig", but there’s a lot to like here.

jaghana (5498) - Strasbourg (Alsace), FRANCE - OCT 29, 2011
Bottle 50cl, a clear amber brown beer with good head. Nose is hopy and vegetable like. Aroma is on caramel and burnt caramel, even some smoked notes, very bitter with a peppery hops that remains on aftertaste.

redlight (2318) - Orlando, Florida, USA - OCT 26, 2011
Draft @ epcot. Pours dark brown with a thin white head. Caramel malts with just a slight hint of smoke and bitter chocolate. A really great dunkel!

porterhouse (1580) - Boothbay, Maine, USA - OCT 14, 2011
(Draft @ brewers’ tent, Germany, Epcot, WDW, Orlando FL, called simply "Altenmünster Dunkel", I’ll assume this is the correct beer) Served in a plastic cup. Dark brown with some dark amber highlights. Small tan head. Aroma of unsweetened cocoa, caramel, nut. Mouthfeel fairly full and round but a bit pebbly and sort of dry. Flavor of chocolate, caramel and nut - decent but a little reserved. A hint of sour undertone toward finish. Finishes a little crisp and dry.

kiwianer (3428) - Otorohanga, NEW ZEALAND - AUG 7, 2011
Die Flasche Besitz lediglich ein türkises Halsetikett, das nicht gerade meinem Geschmack entspricht. Geschmacklich ist es hopfig, mittelmäßig malzig-hopfig, erinnert an Wald. Der Nachgeschmack wird durch Hopfen geprägt. Fazit: Gehobener Durchschnitt! Test vom 17.12.2008, Gebinde: Glasflasche Noten: 10,11,10,8,7,9 - 9,30

Koelschtrinker (17308) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - JUL 6, 2011
Sehr malziger, schwerer Geruch. Schaumkrone hält mittellang. Im Geschmack erkennt man durchweg das malzige, maßgebende Aroma. Außerdem ist dies ein verdammt würziges Bier, gleichzeitig ist es im Nachgeschmack süßlich und recht süffig. Test vom 15.11.2005, Gebinde: Glasflasche Noten: 10,11,11,9,11,11 - 10,60

Kristall-König (2726) - Oldenburg, GERMANY - MAY 18, 2011
Das Altenmünster WInterbier gibt sich unscheinbar in brauner Bügelverschluß-Flasche mit Halsetikett. Sehr schöne tief-dunkle rötliche Farbe. Ein malzig-süßes und auch etwas schweres Bier mit einem Abgang, der keine Bäume ausreißt. Die Malzigkeit ist völlig ok. Von einem Winterbier hätte ich aber mehr (Alkoholgehalt?) erwartet.
