About 150 years ago, this dark style lager was first brewed in Munich, Germany. Our version is fairly dark in color, but don’t be afraid. It is a perfect example that dark beers are not always strong beers. The body is surprisingly mellow, and the alcohol content is a bit lower than most people might think. It has a wonderfully clean and roasty aroma. Hop bitterness levels are kept in line, but is has a noticeable hop flavor. Our Pious Monk Dunkel finishes crisp and clean as a lager should.

On tap at the brewpub. Pours clear amber with medium off-white head. Aroma is caramel malt, medium/light body, and low carbonation. Tate is simple caramel malt.

Bottle. Pours a cloudy orange with minimal white head. Aroma is pilsner malt, little bit of sweetness, no hop character. Taste is bready, malty, even a bit yeasty. Not my favorite, but not that bad.

Gift growler from the Kuba family - thanks! A thin and overly carmelized version of a local dunkel. Runs to the thin side on body and taste.

Solid Dunkel; but nothing stands out that would make me buy again really. One nice aspect is that it has a fuller mouthfeel than most in the style. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Toffee brown colored pour. Small off-white head. Some lacing left behind its quick demise. Malty aroma with some notes of roast and sulphur. Bitter taste, almost tart. Not fitting at all for the style. Some sweet malt notes buried under it. Not bad.

quite a nice brew and compares favorably with many recent craft creations. Although the pour is poor, the taste makes up for that with quite a favorable taste and unique. Would recommend strongly.

DocJitsu (953) - Florida, USA - JUL 31, 2013
Pours mildly cloudy golden copper color with a light tan head. The head fades to a thin cap on top of the liquid. Notes of banana bread right after the poor. Once it settles, more prune is noted. It is like the dark fruit notes that come through in a lot of British brown ales. A somewhat creamy mouthfeel with a little carbonation being expressed late. Muffled flavors of ripe banana and some sweet and tangy. A bit of stale bitterness emerges at the finish.

On tap at World Beer Festival in Cleveland. Not my favorite, light easy to drink lager.
