COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Erzengel (5516) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - JAN 8, 2015
Many thanks to Beerhunter111 for this 0,5l bottle. Best before 20.01.2015. Malty-smooth beginning. Fresh, easy to drink. A malty, slightly roasted and nice liquorice-dry aroma appears in the mainpart, but stays quite low below the quite dry malty body. The aftertaste is long, nice dry malty. Full-bodied, nice and round. Hints of nuts, dry caramel, not much sweetness. Great and refreshing Dunkel!

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.
