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.

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...

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 (9004) - 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 (1744) - 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.

durhambeer (2500) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - JAN 14, 2010
On tap at Tyler’s in Durham. Medium to dark brown with smallish head. Typical bready German malt. Just a tad bit of spice. Nothing much going on here. Boring.

JCB (3999) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - JAN 14, 2010
On tap at Tyler’s, Durham. Knowing this is actually a dunkel makes a bit of sense, given the strongly bready malt character in the nose. Cloudy amber pour with a decent head. Body is actually fairly thin, which doesn’t do the flavors many favors. Mild spice is detectable amid the fairly anonymous German malt character. The mouthfeel’s a bit papery. Forgettable.

Ernest (6749) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JAN 11, 2010
UPDATED: JAN 11, 2011 Bottle (as Monk’s Christmas). Head is initially large, frothy, light brown, mostly lasting. Body is dark amber. Aroma is moderately malty (toasted bread, caramel), moderately hoppy (honeysuckle flowers), with notes of minerals and tangerine, hint of smoke. Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly to moderately sweet, moderately bitter. Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation. Solid, clean, and delightful.
