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.

revans (46) - Salem, Ohio, USA - MAR 24, 2010
12 oz. bottle. Good amber/brown color. Decent head that doesn’t last too long. Malty and nutty flavor. Finishes somewhat dry. An overall acceptable beer. Looking forward to drinking this when it’s hot.

osu97gp (663) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAR 19, 2010
Pours a nice amber color with a thin tan head. Light aroma of malts and nuts with a hint of floral hops. Flavor is sweet with hints of roasted malts and caramel with a subtle hoppy finish. This would make a nice summer beer.

puzzl (3254) - New York, New York, USA - JAN 16, 2010
Bottle from MrChopin. Pours a murky golden brown with almost no head. Minty, vegetal, munich malt aroma, licorice and fennel and charcoal. Good complexity. Clean, lightly spicy, and quite pleasant. In the mouth there is a very mild veggie and white sugar sweetness, hazelnut and cashew, with surprisingly a little bit of alcohol burn in the late finish, along with a touch of noble hop bitterness. Easy drinking, dead on style. I wish more brewers were brewing lagers like this.

Caramel and nutty aroma. Brown/amber color with an off white head. Taste is lightly malty, nutty, slightly sweet. Watery mouthfeel. Middle of the road beer.

Tap @ brewpub: Amber color with a sweet leather aroma and taste. Also some notes of splinters in the flavor followed by a soapy finish. Ok.

Beerman6686 (4704) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 7, 2009
This poured a brown color with a small white head. Aroma was slightly roasted,and a bit nutty, some sweetness too. Flavor was very watery and bland, but nothing offensive, some sweetness and slightly roasted.

DrZao (128) - Houston, Texas, USA - SEP 23, 2009
On tap in the Church. I thought the color was medium brown and not as dark as some other dunkels I have tried. Flavor was smooth and balanced. Palate was fairly light. The finish was clean.

Sonicdescent (384) - Donora, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 23, 2009
Pours medium brown with one finger head, leaving a crown with decent lacing. Smells nutty at first, swirling releases a floral and hoppy scent. Tastes semi-light with a taste tilted more toward malt, not much in the way of bitter. Great intro to craft. Mouth is light to medium bodied with medium carbonation. Drinkability is good, this is a semi light lager, easy to drink, slam, and session.

TheCaptain (613) - Lancaster, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 19, 2009
On tap in Church - Poured a clear dark caramel with some decent head and lacing. Smooth with malt and light roast on the palate, a hop grain body. Well balanced, light-sweet grain aroma. Liked this one!
