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.

sebletitje (7430) - Enghien, BELGIUM - NOV 1, 2008
Pours amber, beige head. Aroma is malty / caramel, earthly hops. Taste, malty with some ncie chocolate notes with subtle nutty addition. Beer is well balanced, light hops giving an alsmot dark fruits flavor, with an always present nice chocolate / caramel malts. Finish leaves some light bitter hops. Beer became more enjoyable as it warmed up. One great dunkel.

douglas88 (6927) - Portland, Oregon, USA - NOV 26, 2008
Bottle thanks to Daniel. Pours out a ruby/brown color with a small white head. The aroma is mostly toasted malts, some light fruits and perhaps s touch of banana. The flavor is similar; lots of toasted malts, some bananas, clove and something odd I can’t put my finger on. Fizzy and full of flavor. Decent overall.

Bottle (12oz) shared with HogTownHarry, tupalev, jerc & mabel -- courtesy of GregClow. Pours a slightly hazy copper with an average size diminishing off-white head. Dull stale aroma of toasted malt. Flavour of grain, lightly toasted malt, some mild sourness and a light bitter finish. Thin bodied. Not good. Dunkel!? I don’t think so...
