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.

delnoche (482) - Alamogordo, New Mexico, USA - NOV 20, 2010
50cl bottle poured into a dimpled mug. Dark amber brown with plenty of creamy tan head. Aroma is malt and old basement. Flavor is very malty, strong oak, slight alcohol. Medium body, high carbonation. Finish is lasting, slightly bitter.

Shared with Bierkrug, on tap - thanks for the introduction to a new place! Roasted malts, slightly sour taste with sweet caramel overtones. Lasting aftertaste. Decent.

Papsoe (25072) - 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

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 (14519) - 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.

worldbeertaste (1756) - 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.

SHIG (4013) - 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.
