Der Stammwürzegehalt liegt bei unserem Kloster Machern Dunkel bei 12,4% und der Alkoholgehalt bei 5,4%. Es wird, nach alten Klosterrezepturen, ausschließlich mit dunklem Malz eingebraut, leicht gehopft und untergärig vergoren. Dadurch erhält es seine malzaromatischen und vollmundigen Geschmack.
Our dark beer has an original extract of 12.4% and contains 5.4% alcohol by volume. It is brewed entirely from dark malt with little hops using bottom fermenting yeast according to an old, monastery recipe. The result is a delicious beer with a full-bodied, malty taste.

Tasting at the ever gracious ChrisO’s. Hazy deep amber beer, tidy pale cream coloured head. Palate is airy and dry. Fine carbonation. Some caramel and dried fruits amid the horrible infection flavours. Light finish. Very bad indeed.

33cl from tab at the brauhaus. Have a dark brown colour with a thin head. Aroma is caramel, coffee and toffee. Average carbonation and medium body. Taste is bitter with some sweet notes and a long and bitter coffee aftertaste. Overall, a very nice beer.

Bamsen78 (3108) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - JUL 23, 2013
Bottle. Pours clear amber with airy but stable off-white head. Clear aroma of malt and caramel with some sparse hoppy notes. Bitter, hoppy flavour with roasty and sweetish touches of caramel malt and a hint of fruit. Mildly bitter finish. Decent.

Sampled at Thomas W, thanks. Smal light brown head. Perfect red-amber color. Very good maltarom. No sweetness and big drinkabillity.

worldbeertaste (1624) - AUSTRIA - SEP 8, 2012
Dark brown that you can see a bit through with a lacy thin off-white lasting thin head. Smells of malt, caramel and a light vegetable. A slight musky. Medium tart frothy body with a bit too much carbonation. Light smoked and roast with lots of malt and a sour dry aftertaste.

suprchunk (2178) - Crestview, Florida, USA - JUN 2, 2012
Toffee color. Big tan/khaki head with a bit of lacing as it slowly dies down. Huge acetic, sour aroma. And nail polish and malt. That sourness comes through slightly in the mouth as well. So much so that it overpowers the hint of malt that is in there. Not good. Can’t finish this one unfortunately.

The last of my reviews on out of date beers from this brewery. All 3 of their beers (including this one) are 5.2%. Brown flip-top half litre bottle should have been drank before 20th Aug 2007, it was drunk today, 12th Sept 2007. Poured into my old half litre Schultheiss glass from Berlin. Great ruby red colour, the huge head of biege bubbles was so large I couldn’t get all the beer into my glass. The beer was not cloudy by any means but it wasn’t crystal clear either. The aroma was of half burnt chocolate malts and yeast. It tastes like an Dusseldorfer Alt more than a lager to me, the label gives no hint. I like it, whatever the true style is. The burntness in the aroma isn’t in the taste, dry caramel without the sweetness is what I pick up. The mouthfeel is good, the beer and mouth goes dry, then more dry as you make your body wait for the next mouthful. A very nice beer, this little brewery will be getting another visit from me.
