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.

Papsoe (25090) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - SEP 29, 2006
(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

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.

fiulijn (14294) - 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.

MiP (13478) - 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.

Koelschtrinker (9999) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - MAY 18, 2011
Wenig malziger Antrunk, der allerdings dezente Karamellnuancen aufweist. Wenig getreidig, süffig, später holzig und etwas erdig, trockener, das Malz zieht sich zurück. Mild, tirnkbar aber langweilig. 5/7/7/7/8/7

Travlr (9999) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - NOV 1, 2011
Bottle courtesy of bierkrug, thanks! Hazy amber color, large thick beige head. Aroma of milk chocolate. Taste of malted milk balls. Interesting.

Rune (7760) - 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).

shrubber85 (7295) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - OCT 9, 2010
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.

Beerhunter111 (6776) - Hasborn, GERMANY - MAR 17, 2014
Ins Glas ergießt sich ein dunkel rötlichbraunes Bier mit schöner Schaumkrone. Geruch röstmalzig, nussig, Karamell. Geschmack röstmalzig, leicht schokoladig, nussig, leicht würzig.
