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.

fidelis83 (1954) - Clinton, Iowa, USA - FEB 3, 2014
Bottle, labeled Monk’s Christkindl @ 7.1% ABV. Pours a slightly hazy dark copper with a 1 finger, soapy, off white head. Aroma is big on cereal, caramel, toast, crusty white bread, honey, granola and spicy, herbal hops. Flavor is full of toasty, nutty and caramel notes up front, then some toffee, hay, granola, lots of cereal, dry grass, spicy, herbal and floral hops. the finish offers an interesting honey and cooked tree fruit taste. Medium body, creamy to chewy feel, light, but blanketing carbonation and fairly neutral finish. Good stuff overall, a bit sweeter than I would like.

On tap in Louisvllle (KY)
A Christmasy dunkel beer was a nice addition to my sampler tray. The daily tap special at Holy Grale, this would have been worth a full pint if I would have had more time. If you are lucky enough to be in the area do not miss whatever German drafts they have at the time.

Aroma / Appearance - The body looks like a glass of warm apple cider. Malty caramel apples add a sweet nutty texture. This isn’t complex but it is very pleasing.

Flavor / Palate - The taste of fresh apple cider chased with a bit of nuttiness opens well. A dry finish works its way to the back of the throat. One weakness is that over times it does not really improve. It might have been the handling in the way to the Midwest; I would love to try some beers in this style and the other Germanic ones at the source.

sloshgator (426) - Orlando, Florida, USA - DEC 30, 2013
Drank as Weißenoher Monk’s Christkindl Dunkel (aliased beer name) on cask. No aroma detected from the dark brown pour with a frothy cask head that holds well. Taste is malty with a slight funk and subtle chocolate notes. Christkindl is a tasty and easy drinking dark beer for the Winter season.

Moravius (490) - Berlin, GERMANY - DEC 29, 2013
Flasche. - Tiefes Rotbraun. In der Nase Röstmalz und würziger Hopfen. Der Antrunk ist röstmalzig und nicht zu süß. Noten von Petersilie, Nuß und Brotkruste. Im Abgang dann würziger fränkischer Hopfen. - Für ein Dunkles unerwartet würzig und hopfig. Wegen des dünnen Mundgefühls aber Punktabzug.

Imported bottle. Straightforward dunkel, caramel and raisins predominate. Slight hoppy spice lingers nicely. Inoffensive and drinkable.

Rando7 (736) - Iowa, USA - DEC 14, 2013
Bottle pours amber-brown with one finger yellow head. Malty aroma, kind of an adjunct odor. Taste a little sweet, malty, slight nuts and banana. Mild finish of German hops. Pretty easy drinking.

brokensail (10935) - Orange County, California, USA - DEC 2, 2013
On tap @ Mikkeller. Dark amber colored beer with an off-white head. Aroma is cola, cherry, and toasted bread. A hint of chocolate and some raisin. Not bad. Flavor is a bit sweeter than expected. A lot of cola, cherry, and raisin. Toasted bread, chocolate, and very mild roast. Almost no bitterness.
