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.

Draft at the abbey. Poured nicely but seemed a thin mouthfeel for a dunkel. Hints of chocolate and malt were nice.

suprchunk (2504) - 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.

dnstone (2335) - 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

worldbeertaste (1711) - West Midlands, ENGLAND - 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.

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