COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

On tap at brewpub. Brown pour, creamy beige head. Nose of rich sweet malt and caramel. Flavor holds nice chocolate malt, smoke, and licorice, but nice crisp carbonation as well. Yummy stuff.

CanIHave4Beers (3142) - Pouring Bus, Iowa, USA - MAY 16, 2011
Pours a very deep ruby red color with a big head and good lace. The aroma is nutty with a nice chocolate note, but overall it seems very faint and almost neutral till you get your nose right in there. The flavor is fruity and the bitterness is wonderful. The beer has a remarkabally clean flavor and has nice mild chocolate notes with some coffee like roastiness.

Koelschtrinker (9999) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - MAY 5, 2011
Voller Malzantrunk mit passender, aber eher hintergründiger Röstigkeit. Im Mittelteil folgt ein Durchhänger, später nimmt das Ganza dann aber wiederzu und bleibt dann, nachdem eine leichte Bitternote hinzukommt, konstant. 12/10/9/9//9

Nagyon sötétbarna színe van, bézs habja sűrű és enyhén krémes, sokáig kitart. Illatában a pörkölt maláta aromája a meghatározó, kevés karamell és étcsoki is érződik, finom. Ízében a pörkölt maláta már visszafogottabban érződik, a keserű csoki és pörkölt magvak ellenben már fontoskodva jelennek meg, a lágy keserűségről egy kevés komló gondoskodik. Közepesen testes, száraz, lágyan szénsavas, mégis kicsit komolyabban kell venni, kell egy kis idő mire felvesszük a sör tempóját. Soha rosszabb dunkelt!

Oakes (12167) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 20, 2011
Very dark brown. Big thick head. Chocolate, bready dark malt aroma. Quite toasty, with a light chocolate undertone. Smooth - a little soft. Nice dark lager.

draft at brewpub. Gorgeous! With thick head. Subtle carob aroma and some soft phenols. Soft palate. Lots of nice mild chocolate flavors. Tasty, fun brew.

culchiem (2405) - Berlin, GERMANY - OCT 19, 2010
UPDATED: OCT 20, 2010 Bottle. Jet black with a full beige head. Literally jumped out of the bottle, once the cork was popped a gush of beer came out even though it was standing in the fridge for a few days. Light notes of roasted malts. Flavour is much stronger malt with a dry smoky finish. Quite dense and creamy finish

Draught at the brewpub. Pretty, fine, somewhat rocky head on a siny black beer. Aroma and flavor of licorice, chocolate, dry and woody. Smooth body, relatively high carbonation and hopping. Nicely bitter finish with a wood or charcoal edge. Clean and fresh, though maybe a bit boring.
