A dark beer, light and sweet and full bodied, highly fermented, very malty aroma. The slight Hpfennote rounds out the flavor and gives this drink a monastery special character. A beer in the good old custom of the monastery.

Many thanks for this bottle to kevnic2008. Piwo z malenka piana, kolorem jasnej czerwieni, zapachem sliwek wegierek. W smaku slodowosc, karmelowosc lekka. Zabraklo nieco wytrawnosci. Nie tego sie spodziewalem po klasztornym browarze.

Brown with shimmering cherry-amber when held to the light, 5mm of dusty light brown head, fast to fade to a thin ring. Aroma is strong lager notes, banana bread, light caramelized banana (but not overripe!). Hint of toffee as it warms. hint of spring farm field. Body is slightly syrupy and medium-light weight, with moderate carbonation, fairly smooth, fat bubbles, but burn is in check. Flavor is a watery caramel with hint of maple syrup and bread crust. Hint of banana bread (much lighter here than in aroma.) Overall, a quaffable dunkel, lots of lager character, banana-bread in the aroma is a highlight. Although balanced, the flavor is short of delicious. Its balanced properties win me over as it warms.

This pours a clear mahogany colour with a firm 1" head of white foam. The smell is that of what dark malts bring to the table. An aromatic mix of roasted and grainy malts that has a lovely sweetness to it. The sweet almost smells fruity, like black cherries. No fruit in the taste at all. Just solid roasted malt flavour with grain ad a light sweet note here and there. Not particularly bitter nor sweet. In between I’d say. Medium body, lightish carbonation. A solid if not great example of the style, imho.

Bottled (From bierzwerg.de). Very deep ambery brown colour with a mediumsized beige head. Aroma is mild roast, some toffee, raisins and quite sweet notes as well. Flavour is mild ripe fruits, some toffee, a bit herbal and grassy notes as well as some slight toasted notes. Leaves a bit thin as for the palate.
