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.

Boliv (1150) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 27, 2010
Flip-top bottle labeled Monk’s Christmas. Pours chestnut brown with a 2-finger light tan head, with nice retention. Aromas are nutty malt, cocoa, caramel, and a hint of red fruit. Flavor is rich, smoky wood, cocoa, and some slightly oaky toffee notes. Medium carbonation and nearly creamy. Tasty beer; enjoyed with smoked venison sausage...Mmmm...

Bottle, bought @ Bierzweg.de.
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.

500ml bottle in a stem glass. Pours deep brown with a lacy, beige head. Aroma of nutty and caramel malts plus a very light hop note. Flavor the same. Average texture. Not bad but not great.

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.

Dark brown colour with tiny off-white head. Aroma of roasted malts, little hops and some caramel notes. Similar are flavours. Medium body, low carbonation and bitterness. Drinkable but still not superlative.

sound67 (640) - Offenbach, GERMANY - JUN 29, 2015
Maker: Klosterbrauerei Weißenohe,Weißenohe, Germany *** Beer: Bonifatius Dunkel (bottled, 500ml) *** Style: Dunkles *** ALC.VOL.: 5.1% *** Colour: Dark mahogany, clear; huge beige head. *** Nose: Rye bread, caramel, mild roasted malts. *** Texture: Medium body, hardly watery. *** Taste: Some roasted malts, chocolate, caramel, complemented by floral hops. The latter grow stringer towards the middle, bitterness however is very moderate. Light caramel in the background. Dark chocolate, roasted malts in the finish, a bit more bitter than before. Aftertaste pretty much the same, with warm caramel lasting the longest. *** Impressions: Perfectly adequate Dunkel with a pleasantly chocolaty bent; not very complex, but very satisfying. A beer for the later afternoon.

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.
