COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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 a clear mahogany with a thick white head. Aroma of caramel, toffee, sweet malt. Flavor of the same - rich caramel malt. Not too sweet, somewhat thin-bodied. Decent dunkel, there’s not much going on here but it doesn’t offend. 6/4/6/4/13 (3.3/5)

Pours a clear dark reddish brown. Aroma is of coffee an roasted grain. The taste is malt forward with a nice blend of hops to balance the sweetness of the malt. The finish is clean while not dry.

Great Beer. One of their regulars that are brewed all year long. Hoppy but not heavy. Just a great german fest type of beers. My favorite among their regulars. Even better on draft at the brewery!

Bottle. Amber through and through. That’s what this Dunkel reminded me of: a good old amber. Darker in appearance with a breadier filled aroma, but the taste was hop laced with a roasted note in the middle, bitter finisher.

Had on tap at brewpub. Poured a nice clear amber color, thin to no head. Aroma of caramel and toast. Flavor was some brown sugar and vanilla, some toast and a slight bitterness on the finish. This one was one of my favs from this trip

DragonStout (1408) - Pickerington, Ohio, USA - DEC 25, 2011
Poured a dark amber color with a head that disappeared quickly.Caramel and roastedness on the nose. Flavor was full body, with caramel, nutty, and bready notes. Finished off leaving a nice roastedness swirling around.

Draft at the brewpub. Pours a coke brown with no head. Aroma is slightly roasty but thin. Flavor is a roasted peatish malt taste that’s slightly thin.

Pours dark red with little to no white head, aroma has notes of some slight caramel, spice, earth, some slight buttery notes. Taste is some weird buttery notes, with a touch of caramel, spice, some bread. Ok, but definitely a bit off.
