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.

Pours brownish from tap with a thin note of caramel on the nose. There’s a slight estery note on the tongue but it’s buried down pretty deep.

Full bodied, sweet, very malty, and pleasant belgian spicey notes. Certainly not the most complex beer, but a decent offering.

Draft. Poured a copper amber color. Aroma of sweeter malts and subtle hops. Taste is lite sweetness and lite bitterness. Lighter bodied. Have always like this one. Smooth tasting and the flaovor is there for a lite alcohol beer. Nice balance of malt and hops.

robgibbens (406) - Gaithersburg, Maryland, USA - JUN 11, 2011
Pours a dark amber and is still clear enough to see through. The head was gone instantly. Caramel and bready notes. Taste is barely bitter with a clean finish. Average but very refreshing.

rudolf (2340) - Buffalo, New York, USA - MAY 15, 2011
Tap @ brewpub. Roasty malt, caramel, very nice toffee - almost smells like something Flying Bison would put out pre-FX takeover. The flavor starts out with a whole lot of malt, dark honey, light sulfur & earthiness. A bit of earthy cherry in the malty finish.

Thanks to lithy for this one - Clear, cola-ish brown, with a nice off-white head. Toasty, slightly smokey aroma. Roasty, toasty flavor, too. Plus some coffee, some smokey notes, and, uh, mint? Maybe?
