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.

Had under the alias "Monk’s Christmas" at Holy Grale, Louisville. Real nice malt profile with caramel, raisins, pineapple and light chocolate, but without the overbearing chocolate/caramel of many Dunkels. Appearance was reddish cola brown with bone head. Flavor matched the nose, but with the wonderful toasty, nutty finish that I enjoy in so many German beers. Palate was soft and chewy. Fantastic beer.

Under the Christmas label, this is very nice. Auburn color, sweet malty notes in the nose. Not very complex as befits a dunked.

thegreenrooster (3159) - St.louis, Missouri, USA - DEC 24, 2011
Pour is a dark brown with a large tan head. Aroma is sweet caramel malt. Flavor is decently roasted caramel malt with a little earthyness left on the tounge after the swallow. A decent no frills dunkel.

Benjii (3049) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - DEC 18, 2011
Bottle at home. Pours a deep chestnut brown colour with a thick, light tan head. Aroma of bready yeast, biscuity malt, Weetabix, caramel and grassy hops. Similar biscuity flavour with a little grass again and light woody and earthy notes. Moderate carbonation, light CO2 prickle and an oily mouth-feel. Nice and malty with a chocolate linger.

porterhouse (1581) - Boothbay, Maine, USA - DEC 17, 2011
(500 ml labelled "Monk’s Christmas" from Bootleggers) Pours mostly clear dark tea brown with a large, lasting tan head. Aroma of brown sugar, vanilla and chocolate with some initial sourishness. Mouthfeel smooth, fairly full but filtered-feeling, borderline creamy. Flavor of chocolate, brown sugar and vanilla, a bit restrained but good. Turns more chocolatey as it warms. Pretty pleasant dunkel bier.

Draught at TND: Aroma of malt, hops, and dust. Poured copper/amber in color with a medium-sized, creamy, tan head that diminished but lasted throughout. Clear. Sparkling. Flavor is lightly sweet and slightly bitter. Tastes of malt, leaves, and marzen-like flavors. Medium body. Lightly dry texture. Average carbonation. Malt, leaf, finish is lightly sweet and slightly bitter.

Pours clear chestnut with a small, frothy, off-white head. Aroma is sweet, light caramel, some liqourice, grass and a hint of chocolate. Highish carbonation, dry and light mouthfeel. Flavour is mild sweet, some toasted caramel, softly roasted. A bit of chocolate. Good malty and grassy bitterness. Nicely drinkable.

kappldav123 (4700) - GERMANY - OCT 7, 2011
Bottle looks simple but good. Beer in the glass very dark, almost black. Nice head. Starts mild, fine malty, not too roasty. Hints of caramel. Well balanced finish, quite drinkable. Really good dunkles.
