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.

dnstone (2139) - 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

Bierkrug (2133) - - NOV 23, 2009
UPDATED: MAY 4, 2011 500 ML flip-top bottle in Germany. Dark carmel color with light brown head. Aroma is is malty with hints of smoke. Taste is like most Dunkels, full body with a spectrum of flavors ending slightly bitter.

fiulijn (14513) - 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 (1472) - 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 (8042) - 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).

BelgianBeerGal (3190) - Panama City, Florida, USA - JUL 21, 2007
Draft at the abbey. Poured nicely but seemed a thin mouthfeel for a dunkel. Hints of chocolate and malt were nice.

SHIG (3586) - Wasilla, Alaska, USA - APR 29, 2007
Draught: Poured a reddish brown with off white head. Not very much aroma to be senced. The flavor was tea, bark, and leafy malt.

MiP (13598) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - DEC 2, 2006
Bottle, 5.2% as Dunkel Naturtrüb. Slightly roasted aroma. Smoky flavour, a bit of bacon and still malty. Sour aftertaste.

(Bottle 50 cl) Slightly hazy amber golden with a small, rough, off-white head. Lightly tart and malty nose. Medium-bodied with lightly tart and vinous accents. Has a vaguely smoked note. A dry finish. Not your typical Dunkel, but not uninteresting. 220906
