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.

Svesse (6041) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - AUG 2, 2008
(Draught at Klasterni Pivovar Strahov, Prague, 20 July 2008) Almost black colour with creamy, pale brown head. Malty, roasted nose with discrete notes of chocolate and coffee. Malty, roasted taste with chocolate, coffee and cola. Fairly discrete flavours and moderate bitterness. A decent dunkel, but lacking some punch.

thewolf (11101) - Kolding, DENMARK - JUL 14, 2008
Tap @ Klásterní Pivovar Strahov, Prague.
Pours deep black with a giant, creamy, cappucino head. Super duration. Aroma is sweet, chocolate, roasted malts and raisins. Medium carbonation, fine mouthfeel. Flavour is pleasant, well roasted, light raisin fruitiness and soft chocolate. Spicy and crisp hoppy finish. Extremely drinkable.

yespr (30631) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - JUL 3, 2008
From tap at the brewpub. Pours dark brown, unclear and with a lacing light brown head. Mild roasted malt aroma. Flavour is roasted malt together with a nice liqourice hops flavour. Ends dry and bitter with a nice lingering liqourice spiced hops finish.

Grovlam (4152) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUL 1, 2008
Draught @ the brewpub. Average beige and creamy head that mostly lasted. Good display of lacework. Quit black color. Aroma of mild coffee, sweet chocolate, roasted malt. Over the palate came mild hoppy and dusty floral notes. Medium to almost full bodied with an average carbonation. Moderated bitter and sweet flavor in balance. Lingering roasted malty and bitter hoppy finish. Nice crispe and fresh that was very drinkable.

coldbrewky (1418) - Hippetown East, New York, USA - JUN 1, 2008
Draft at Strahov Monastary Prague: Lighter medium body with hardly a taste after the initial front of tounge assault. Not much nose. Weaker oily head with sandy lacing. A good swashing about the mouthe hepls this brew out a good bit and releases the nutty dark malts. Some carmelization. Overall not a bad dunkel. I mixed this with their weiss and it was Magic.

Stew41 (1722) - Woodend, AUSTRALIA - MAY 29, 2008
Well made for the style (more porter for my tastes) but perhaps a bit pedestrian. Light milk chocolate on the nose. Palate shows medium strength sweet chocolate with a sliver of bitterness. Solid if not spectacular.
