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.

Tap. Toffee malt, sour milk malt and hay hops aroma. Cloudy orange-brown color with small head. Sweet orange-caramel malt and moderately bitter fresh hay/grass hops flavor. Excellent - a dunkel that is fruity and hoppy.

dnstone (2344) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - JAN 2, 2010
Dark malty aroma; some tootsie roll like chewy chocolate. Deep brown color with soft off-white head. Overall light flavor with a touch of roastiness from the dark malt, very clean almost steril (thanks again reinheitsgebot). Notes: Bottle found at one of the local schnapps stores in Berkastel-Kues

fiulijn (16003) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 9, 2008
Draught at the brewpub
Cloudy chestnut color. The aroma is very mild. The flavor too is not exciting, with some mild caramel and nothing else; it has a very low bitterness. Drinkable, refreshing Dunkel, but too simple.

TaxiDriver (1487) - Stadland, GERMANY - JUN 8, 2008
Bottle. Heavy malty smell, dark chocolate. Very large rocky light brown foamy head, normal long lasting; dark red body. Moderate bitter start, light bitter and sweet finish. The duration is medium. Medium body, dry and creamy texture with a soft carbonation. A very nice Dunkles.

Rune (8928) - Tromsø, NORWAY - OCT 14, 2007
500ml swing-top bottle brought back from Trier in Germany and enjoyed at home in Tromsø on a Saturday eve. Pours a big thick and rocky yellow-brownish head with good retention, blanketing the glass. Slightly hazy, tan body. Quite solid aroma of dark chocolate. Shortage of taste at first, then becoming malty as it warms. Skilful blend of dark and brown roasted malts with hints of raisin and nuts beneath. Dry and dusty aftertaste (13.10.2007).
