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.

Pour was brown in color with an ok initial head, medicore quality lacing. The aroma was cocoa, roast, dark fruits, earth, grass. The flavor followed the aroma, but this thing was pretty darned dry. Mouthfeel was a medium body and again, pretty dry finish, lingering notes of grassy type hops. Maybe I would have liked this more in the early Fall or Spring, but I was wanting a bit bigger for a holiday brew.

SledgeJr (3577) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - DEC 16, 2009
On tap gravity keg from the Huber Haus. Chestnut color. Medium thick ecru colored head and low carbonation. Roasted flavor up front with very little malt sweetness. Strong finishing tartness. Leaves much to be desired.

kitschy (326) - Nebraska, USA - DEC 16, 2009
Chocolatey nose with a hint of orange. Color of dietrite cola with a nice off-white head. Tastes sweet and bubbly. There are hops here, but not what I expected from the nose - flavor is more hay-like.

16.9 oz. swingtop bottle picked up on a recent holiday beer run. Pours a deep dark ruby/mahogany color with very dark orange edges when held to a light source ans a one finger frothy off white head with decent retention, only slowly fading into a lasting ring that leaves sporadic cunks of soapy lacing behind. Slightly earthy aroma with hints of chocolate and caramel malt, rye, light cherry and grassy hops. Subtle toffee and hazelnut presence in the nose. Soft carbonation up front with a lightr body than I expected. Prominent spice up front that lingers over the sweet lightly roasted malt body into a bone dry finish. Hints of christmas cake, spice, caramel and rye maltiness, cinnamon, brown sugar and dark sour cherries. Also there is some toffee ands subtle nutty flavor. Pretty sweet and spicy but is somewaht blanced by the malt backbone. Easy to drink and a big plus is that it doesn’t have the medicinal syrupy fell that I hate in a lot of Xmas beers.

Bottle. Pours an amber body with an off white head. Malty chocolate notes, some light lactose notes, caramel and toffee. Some thin butter scotch tones, light wood and a hint of smoke. A nice ale.

I almost didn’t buy this because I thought it was just old bottles of Monks Fest. I’m glad I recognized the subtle differences in the label (i.e. the name of the beer) The beer pours with a medium fluffy head that leaves a good lace, the color is a brilliant orange-ish red. The aroma has some hay and some mild chocolate with some graininess and light whiffs of noble hops. The flavor is husky and has plenty of herbal hops and some good chocolate notes. There is also a spicy & sweet candy thing going on in the background that is pretty good as well. The palate is rich but very smooth (real smooth?) This is another very nice beer from this brewery, I hope these seasonals from weissenoher keep popping up around Des Moines.

50cl bottle, labeled as Monk’s Christmas - lightly hazy dark copper - large, fizzy head - fairly sweet aroma, with strong caramel, some wildflower honey character, llightly spicy hops - fairly creamy body - semi-dry, toasted bread flavor, with light hints of roasted nuts, caramel, moderate hop bitterness - a touch of warming spiciness at the end - dry-ish finish - another solid lager from this brewery.

The color is beautiful, red-brown and the head is creamy. The aroma has notes of roasted malt, nuts and caramel. The flavor has a light sweetness and notes of roasted malt, nuts, caramel, and the finish has a slightly dry touch of citrus. A quite nice one!
