Served on tap at golgatha in Berlin. Nice Dunkel - malty sweet, brown sugar on the nose, but smooth and slightly bitter flavor profile. This beer make me rethink my usual distaste for dunkels.

Mild würziger, angenehm herber Antrunk. Die geringe Süße macht das Ganze süffig, erst später entfalten sich Malznoten. Dezent herber und etwas malziger Abgang. Könnte intensiver sein. 8/10/9/9//9

This is the first dark beer of the German trip and I believe this is a bock. Brownish-red color, a bit of dryness in the finish. Sweet a bit, but also quite malty. The place itself is very cool also. They only had the one beer but it’s worth the trip.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draught at the monastery. Ceramic mug. The head is beautiful and I suppose the color is golden. The aroma has notes of grain and malt. The slightly sweet flavour has notes of malt, light butterscotch, citrus and a slightly dry bitterness, that makes it very refreshing.

I travel a lot (usually 75,000 to 150,000 miles per year air miles). I have been in almost a hundred countries and many hundreds of towns. Wherever I go, I try the local brews and ask the natives what their recommendations are. After tasting more than a thousand different beers, there is one I always come back to as the best taste in beer anywhere. The Kreuzberg Klosterbrauerei beer is the absolute best beer anywhere. I first tried in 1979, came back many times from 1982-1988, and several times in the the 1990s and well over 30 times in the 2000s. Beer can be bought only at the Klosterbrauerei in one or half liter steins or taken with you in large bottles or kegs but this beer does not come in bottles, cans and is not sold in your local markets. Many park near the bottom of the mountain and walk up the mountain to enjoy this beer and the delious German food. Once you have tried, I am sure you will agree, it is well worth the walk up the mountain.

[on tap at monastery]
Very fresh hops with some nice, sulfury hops. Opaque mug made it hard to judge colour: dark amber with a lasting white, lacy cover. Very smooth, sweet malt with low bitterness and a sulfury finish, though not as sulfury as the aroma. Very clean, moderate carbonation, light to medium body.
