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.

Aroma is heavy on dark malts, with some graininess as well. The flavor is caramel, toffee, nuttiness and a smooth finish. No off flavors or harshness and a good flavor, this was a great dunkel.

Sorry for the german rating, but this is a lousy rating from my "newbie" time (2007-2009), and it’s not worth of being translated. I just added it for the statistics, and to complete my backlog!
Im Glas ist das Bier bernsteinfarben. Leicht hell rötlich, mit mächtig großer, mittelporiger Cremekrone, die sich mittelmäßig lange hält. Geruchlich kommen einige würzige Aromen, sowie leichte Röstmalzaromen durch. Der Antrunk ist würzig, sehr brotig getreidig, und angenehm süßlich. Das starke brotige Aroma dominiert dieses ganze Bier. Eigentlich nicht schlecht, aber irgendwie zu eintönig, und für ein Dunkles sehr eigenartig.

Thinn beige lace. Clear amber color. Caramell aroma and "wet dog". Full bodied malty taste with medium bitterness.

Clear dark amber with a nice head and lace. Taste is full caramel malt with light spices and light bittering. Easy to drink and nice full-body, especially in light of the 5.1%abv. Recommended.

The pour is a translucent, dark crimson color with a moderately full, rocky, pillowy, off-white head which is somewhat lasting and leaves soapy lace. The nose is simple but pleasant with faint cocoa, slight roast, and lots of dark breads. The flavor is similar with husky grains, very yeasty breads, slightly barnyardy, and some light roast. The palate is more than moderate, lively, crisp, and slightly creamy. The finish is still a bit barnyardy, grainy, and doughy. Almost like being at the farm with the barnyard notes and intense grains, but still the palate really keeps the beer together. Not sure why they call it "Monk’s Christmas" when it shares no similarities to a Belgian beer?

Draft. Hazy brown color, thick tan head. Aroma of black pepper and caramel. Taste is bittersweet caramel. Not bad.

ContemplateBeer (1787) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - DEC 26, 2011
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.

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.
