Ein kräftiges, aber süffiges dunkles Landbier, dessen traditioneller Charakter durch seinen hohen Stammwürzegehalt von 12,6 % unterstrichen wird (Exportbier!). Gebraut nur mit dunklem Malz im aufwändigen Maischverfahren. Kräftig im Trunk, angemessene Bittere und ein angenehmes Röstaroma.

Pours a filtered hazelnut brown color, with a huge, spongy head, from which big bubbles emerge. Smells of whole grain bread, with a toasty note to it, topped of by copper and wood bark. The nose got a restraint toffee sweetness to it, complimenting the rich dark malts perfectly. Has a very soft mouthfeel with medium carbonation, revealing a bubbly quality during the finish. Tastes mirrors the nose to a certain degree, the profound malts draw most of the attention, with a mild acidity adding to its depth. Its pleasant sour note evolves to a toffee peak during the finish, evoking the image of caramelized grapes being dipped into bakers chocolate. A leafy quality, as well as a mineralic carbonation diversify this impression, while the beer remains expectedly well balanced as expected. Well made Dunkel, which got a nice twist to it, while integrating a pleasant depth.

Bottle in glass at Guthega Inn. The perfect dark beer to go with Goulash or a homemade sausage and sauerkraut. Full flavoured, well rounded. Those monks know what they are doing!

0,5 Flasche aus einem lokalen Getränkemarkt. Ins Glas ergießt sich ein kupfer- bis rostbraunfarbenes, klares Bier mit reichlich Kohlensäure und einer leicht bräunlichen, cremigen Schaumkrone die bestehen bleibt. Riecht sehr intensiv nach Karamell, Vanille, Brot, leicht süßlich. Schmeckt süßlich, nach Karamell, leicht nach Brot und wird dann minimal bitter und es kommen klare Röstaromen durch, gebrannter Kaffee.

sound67 (570) - Offenbach, GERMANY - JUN 29, 2015
Maker: Klosterbrauerei Weißenohe,Weißenohe, Germany *** Beer: Bonifatius Dunkel (bottled, 500ml) *** Style: Dunkles *** ALC.VOL.: 5.1% *** Colour: Dark mahogany, clear; huge beige head. *** Nose: Rye bread, caramel, mild roasted malts. *** Texture: Medium body, hardly watery. *** Taste: Some roasted malts, chocolate, caramel, complemented by floral hops. The latter grow stringer towards the middle, bitterness however is very moderate. Light caramel in the background. Dark chocolate, roasted malts in the finish, a bit more bitter than before. Aftertaste pretty much the same, with warm caramel lasting the longest. *** Impressions: Perfectly adequate Dunkel with a pleasantly chocolaty bent; not very complex, but very satisfying. A beer for the later afternoon.

Poured into the glass it shows a red-amber colour and a creme coloured head. Aromas of grain, roasted malt and, in my opinion, more resiny than grasy hops. Flavours of caramel, roasted malt and some minerals. A fine bitter finish with a bit of smoked ham, not very intense. Body is okay, could be a bit heavier. straight forward and down-home beer with a clear focus on the malt. i like it.
