COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Dorwart (2356) - Robbinsville, New Jersey, USA - APR 17, 2010
Strong off-white head of fine and dense bubbles. Sweet malty aroma with a bit of spice and vegetal aromas. Color is a very nice dark crimson brown. Lots of bready malts, some roasted brains, brown sugar and some cloying sweetness. Little bit sickly sweet in the stomach. Finishes thick and malty with a bit of lingering spices and squash. An ok brew.

ogreface (1344) - Budapest, HUNGARY - FEB 15, 2010
Vörösesbarna színe van amin egy közepes bézs színű hab csücsül,ami gyorsan összeesik,de egy vékony leplet hagy maga után.Illata olyan mint a régi zacskós kakaóé egy kis vizes deszkára öntve.Íze savanykásan kezdődik amibe keveredik egy kis pörkölt magvas,kávés zamat egy kevés karamellával.Teste kissé vizes és enyhén szénsavas.Utóíze kicsit fanyar és száraz.Könnyen iható dunkel de közel sem a legjobb a fajtájából.

0,5 l bottle, bought at Sörspecialista.hu, Budapest.
Poured clear reddish-brown with a foamy stable tan head. Moderated aroma of toasty caramel, some sourish yeast. Medium bodied beer with fine carbonation, toasty caramel, minimal bit of hop. Not bad but not a big deal...

GT2 (8159) - San Diego County, California, USA - JAN 18, 2010
500 mL (flip-top). Pours a clear deep red with a rocky, off-white, thick head. Awesome retention and lacing. Aroma is cherries, caramel, biscuit. Taste is cherry juicy juice. Very sweet and cherry centric.

JoeMcPhee (8302) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 16, 2010
Deep amber beer. The nose is quite clean and toasty. It’s fairly clean with a pronounced munich malt toastiness. Nice noble hop spiciness and a bit of minerally character as well. Nice balance of toasted malts and soft herbal hoppiness. Nutty and pretty damn tasty.

brenn79 (1467) - Idaho, USA - JAN 15, 2010
(Monk’s Christmas) 16.9 oz Grolsch style flip top- Pours dark amber with a pretty good head and below average lacing, aroma is not great, smells like a mass produced pale lager. The taste is better, there is definite roasted caramel malt, very easy to pour down the throat, the aroma is the weakest part of this otherwise decent brew.
