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.

UPDATED: JUL 12, 2005 Pours a clear deep amber color with a small amount of white head. Aroma is sweet and caramely with hints of hops and fruits. Flavor is very well balanced and crisp: sweet nutty roasted malts followed by a slight subtle hop flavor. Overall, I found this beer to be very enjoyable.

On tap at the brewery. Nice off-brown amber pour. Thin hoppish malty aroma. Chocolate milk. Dry malty fortaste and a hoppy spiced slightly bitter back taste.

hopscotch (10210) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - NOV 30, 2004
Clear, copper lager with a small, fizzy, white head. Chocolate, red wine and a touch of caramel in the aroma. The flavor is malty, but perfectly balanced. Lightly chocolatey and caramelly with some grassy notes. Medium-bodied with a creamy mouthfeel and medium carbonation. Short, chocolatey, bitter finish.

boto (1969) - Granby, Connecticut, USA - NOV 19, 2004
Draught at the brewery: This one was a copper color with some off-white head to it. It was fairly clear. The aroma was a bit thin: nothing bad to it just not much there. There were hints of sweetness and spices. The body was a bit of a medium with an OK but non-deScript flavor. This just rates an OK.

Light brown clear with no head. A light sweet start, not very malty. OK bitterness in the finish and after, though watery. An average dunkel.

zach8270 (3913) - Henrietta, New York, USA - JUL 26, 2004
UPDATED: DEC 7, 2008 [draft - Church Brew Works - Lawrenceville, PA] Poured a medium dark brown color with a very, very thin and quickly dissipating white head. Light roasted malt aroma with a touch of burnt toast and brown sugar. Crisp taste of roasted malts with a hint of sweetness and burnt biscuits. Not as heavy a flavor as I thought it would be from looking at it. Very clean.

FROTHINGSLOSH (5669) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 7, 2004
UPDATED: JUN 26, 2014 Sampled on draft at the brewery this beer poured a medium brown color with a small white head. Very faint malt aroma. The flavor was bitter, nutty and dry with some roasted malt present as well. Actually this tasted a lot more like a brown ale to me than a dunkel. Nothing inspiring here.

cb (810) - Roeland Park, Kansas, USA - JUN 7, 2004
Fairly sweet, malty. Brown sugar and caramel accentuated by fruitiness. Very light, not much toastiness or roasty notes in aroma or body. Slightly hoppy finish.

This had a very solid mouthfeel and a distinct balance between biscuit and alcohol notes. It was also strangely fruity, like the brown, except this time I got vague hints of banana out of it.
