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.

mansquito (3114) - Nueva York, New York, USA - JAN 21, 2013
New Beer Distributors, NY 50cl ($4.50): Pours a copper color with a whitish head. Aroma is caramel, malt, and a modicum of hops. Taste is quite sweet, and it leaves somewhat of an aftertaste that is quite sugary. Body is medium. Not bad, but easily forgettable.

50 cl bottle @ Timo A. Rated on 05.01.2011
Aroma is somewhat roasted with coffee notes, some chocolate and malt. Flavour is malty with some chocolate, berries, caramel and hints of metal. Decent.

bartlebier (1196) - Belchum im Breisgau, GERMANY - JAN 15, 2013
50cl Maruhn - Surprisingly tasty, dry, potent Dunkel with some subtle aromas to back up the balanced full roasty Vollbier taste - verges into Belgian dark ale territory, but with more bitterness and contained ABV. Nice label. One of my gateway beers to the rich Franconian beer world.

Deep gold to light amber in color (not sure why it is called a Dunkel). Head faded to nothing almost immediately. Light malty aroma with some DMS characteristics. Malty with some flavors associated with under attenuation. Seems much more in line with a Maibock than any kind of Dunkel. Not bad, but I would not go out of my way to find it again.

This beautiful golden brown beer pies with a nice head. It has a sweet aroma and a very smooth taste. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

A very interesting beer. Pours a beautiful clear amber red. Smells of black cherries and caramel. Taste is similar, cherries, caramel and vanilla. Had on New Years. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bonifatius Dunkel. Yes, this is a Franconian Dunkel, I suppose. And it is indeed a bit more exciting than the incredible sea of boredom where the world of Dunkles sits upon. Sweet, dry, nutty, really creamy. The hoppy touch, a little bitterness, not too much, breaks the Dunkel monotony, making a tremendous difference.

JK (4293) - St. Louis Park, Minnesota, USA - DEC 21, 2012
Bottle from South Lyndale Liquor. A light brown color and low carbonation. The aroma has malt and lager yeast but there is also some light spice I can’t identify, along with the lightest nutmeg. Rich palate and lots of sweet malt. A very good dunkel, and unusual with the light spice. Another reminder that it is hard to get a quality dunkel outside of central Europe.

Bottle @ home titled "Weißenoher Monk’s Christkindl" picked up at Argonaut Denver. Pours a fairly clear, dark rust orange appearance with a cream colored head. Kind of spicy, tangerine, citrus fruity aroma with some straw, floral, and roasty notes. Lightly metallic/minearlic, herbal/earthy hoppy, caramel, somewhat nutty, fairly chewy flavor. Reminds me of my travels to Bavaria. Pretty tasty.

#339 Schönes und sattes dunkelbraun mit ordentlicher Schaumkrone. Im Aroma kommt herberes Blockmalz auf. Der Antrunk ist dann eher dünn geraten, geschmacklich aber gelungen. Es lassen sich verschiedene Malztöne zwischen lieblich-süß über Toffeenoten bis würzig-brotige Nuancen erschmecken. Durchaus lecker, könnte aber einen Tick kräftiger ausfallen. Test vom 2.12.2009, Gebinde: Glasflasche Noten: 12,10,11,11,12,11 - 11,00
