COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Bill Becker (389) - Casper, Wyoming, USA - OCT 23, 2014
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.

oh6gdx (20821) - Vasa, FINLAND - OCT 23, 2014
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.

Moravius (568) - Berlin, GERMANY - JUN 12, 2014
Flasche von Hopfen & Malz, Berlin. - Schönes Kastanienbraun, klar. - In der Nase Karamelbonbons und deutliche milde Säure. - Der Antrunk ist breit malzig-süß mit milden Röstmalznoten und einer frischen pikant-fruchtigen Note. Durchschnittlich rezent, vollmundig. Dunkles Malz und ein pikanter Säureton bilden einen angenehmen Kontrast; hinzu kommt etwas Gras. Zum Ende hin etwas leer. Klingt malzig und fruchtig mit nur einer Ahnung von zitrusfruchtigem Hopfen aus. - Weniger süß als andere Dunkle, könnte aber für meinen Geschmack deutlich mehr Röstmalz und mehr Hopfen bieten.
