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.

Creedence (282) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - MAR 29, 2014
Cask at NERAX. Pours a dark brown with a thin beige head. Huge hot malt aroma, with lots of heavy caramel and toffee. Flavour is similarly robust, with huge toasted malt, caramel and toffee taste. Virtually no hop character. Hot alcohol finish, smooth and full bodied. My second from the brewery, and both have been big, intense and delicious sweet beers.

Pours a brown/amber in color with a light brown head. Malty aroma with a hint of toffee and some slightly roasted nut notes. Moderately sweet taste with malt , caramel, toffee and nuts followed by a sweet, malty, roasted finish. This one was quite enjoyable.

larsga (6323) - Oslo, NORWAY - NOV 30, 2012
Medium beige head. Beautiful deep ambery brown body. Earthy caramelly mineraly toffee aroma with nougaty marzipan notes. Wow. Dry-sweet caramelly earthy marzipan taste with roasty grainy mineraly notes. Mid-bodied. Mild, smooth mouthfeel. Dryish earthy roasty marzipana aftertaste with mineraly burnt caramel notes. Flavour lingers for a good while. Unusual, but really, really nice. (0.5l bottle, Absinth Depot Berlin.)

Shaney (2427) - Köln / Cologne, GERMANY - DEC 5, 2012
#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

Really enjoyed this one. Poured a nice brown with an off-white head. Malt and roast aromas with some nice spice. Finished nice, sweet and complex.

Ernest (6353) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JAN 11, 2010
UPDATED: JAN 11, 2011 Bottle (as Monk’s Christmas). Head is initially large, frothy, light brown, mostly lasting. Body is dark amber. Aroma is moderately malty (toasted bread, caramel), moderately hoppy (honeysuckle flowers), with notes of minerals and tangerine, hint of smoke. Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly to moderately sweet, moderately bitter. Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation. Solid, clean, and delightful.

JoeMcPhee (8571) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 16, 2010
Deep amber beer. The nose is quite clean and toasty. It’s fairly clean with a pronounced munich malt toastiness. Nice noble hop spiciness and a bit of minerally character as well. Nice balance of toasted malts and soft herbal hoppiness. Nutty and pretty damn tasty.

rozsoma (511) - HUNGARY - OCT 4, 2010
Nagyon finom kis serecske, kicsit édeskés, malátás, olyan melaszos. Érződik a karemel is. Igazi dunkel mintapéldány. Ja és gesztenyebarna színe van, annak akit ez érdekel.
