First beer we have cooked here after many years of break. Its origins reach back to Munich from the first half of the 19th century. Our St. Norbert tastes dryer and bitterer than the Munich lager. Whole malt well hopped beer, showing the Munich, caramelized and roasted malt in its taste.

DruncanVeasey (8012) - NUNEATON, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - FEB 24, 2008
UPDATED: MAR 2, 2008 At the brewery. Pitch capped with mountainous beige. Deceptively citrussy nostril with some very English sulphur. Smells almost like a cask ’golden ale’. Bitter hop punch (mandarin,grapefruit) without much malt roast or chocolate. Vaguely smoky, but it could be the choking nicotine. Tasty, uncomplicated, juicily hopped...

Ernest (7362) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JAN 27, 2008
Draught, Strahov/Praha. Head is initially average sized, frothy, light brown, mostly lasting. Body is dark brown to black. Aroma is moderately malty (roasted grain, coffee, chocolate). Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, moderately bitter. Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation. Straightforward and plain but decent. If I hadn’t had the Kout dunkel a day or two earlier, I might have liked this a bit more, but it wasn’t even close.

SamGamgee (2452) - down the whirlpool, California, USA - DEC 16, 2007
Tap at the brewpub, 12-14-07. Deep brown with a big soapy beige head. Sweet roasty, woody and chocolate aroma. Flavor is sweet and malty with low bitterness and a hint of smoke. Just enough hops to balance, but no more. Palate is medium, smooth, and creamy. Very nice dunkle. "This is a good morning beer; tastes like you could brush your teeth with it." - Adam

Mr. Ostendorf brought a bottle of this home from his Czech visit. I couldn’t help but expect something below average. He delivered. Packed with flavor for being 5.5%. Riddled with roasted/burnt malts - finishes with a rather bitter espresso, dark fruit, hoppy punch. From my memory of Czech beers during my visit - this one is way up there. Very good!

I had this at the brewery in Prague and brought two bottles of it back with me to the States. Wow, what a beer. Probably the best I had over two short days in the city. A nice flavor, a bit of hop, not too strong nor overpowering. I polished off two there and could’ve had more.

Draft - Dark brown hazy body with a red shine, very long lasting whipped cream head; Medium sized very well composed nose of hop sack, licorice and star anise; Big bubbled carbonation in fresh body, malty and hoppy bitter, very pleasant; Long finish, starting malty and hoppy bitter, becoming warmer, soft licorice, almost chocolaty. Great beer.

Bottle brought to me by some Czech relatives. Dark brown with a thick tan head. Malty and dry with a fair amount of bitterness. A very smooth and elegant Dunkel.

Quack-Duck (9164) - Down South, GERMANY - JUN 16, 2007
on tap at Klasterni Pivovar in Prague. Dark brown, large head, slightly hazy, as it is unfiltered. Lovely taste with flavours of wild berries, roasted malt, coffee and caramel. Not sweet at all.
