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.

JK (4433) - 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.

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

500 ml bottle from BevMo in Mira Mesa, CA. This rating is for the "Monk’s Christkindl Special Winter Brew" beer which I’m not sure is the same as this listing, but that’s what it’s tagged to. Sweet caramel and candied fruit aromas from a crystal clear copper/amber body with a medium light tan head. The sweet aromas carry straight through to the taste where that delicious German lager taste is waiting. There’s a rich nutty flavor that dries out the sweetness and balances it very well. A bit of woody bitterness and what seems like a bit of a bite from alcohol, but it’s only 5.1% ABV, so I’m not sure where that’s coming from. Ends with a dry but still sweet finish. Deliciously rich and tasty German dark lager.

0.5l bottle. Dark amber body, off white head. Sweet malty aroma, mostly toast and caramel, but there is some floral hoppyness too. Taste reflects the aroma. Mostly sweet caramely, toasty malts but the finish has some floral hops in it. Very nice dunkel. I like it.

jbrus (4992) - Delft, NETHERLANDS - JUL 9, 2009
Bottle@Home, thanks DerDoppelbock. Malty aroma with toffee notes and a hint of smoke. Brown colour, beige head, good lace. Light sweet, quite malty, subtle smoke, toffee, butterscotch, light bitterness. Medium to full body for a Dunkel. Very good example of the style.

Taste is nice... light roasted malts, light smoke, light spice. Texture is a little thin but not watery. Overall a good beer

I almost didn’t buy this because I thought it was just old bottles of Monks Fest. I’m glad I recognized the subtle differences in the label (i.e. the name of the beer) The beer pours with a medium fluffy head that leaves a good lace, the color is a brilliant orange-ish red. The aroma has some hay and some mild chocolate with some graininess and light whiffs of noble hops. The flavor is husky and has plenty of herbal hops and some good chocolate notes. There is also a spicy & sweet candy thing going on in the background that is pretty good as well. The palate is rich but very smooth (real smooth?) This is another very nice beer from this brewery, I hope these seasonals from weissenoher keep popping up around Des Moines.

Pailhead (4809) - Brownstown, Michigan, USA - DEC 24, 2010
Bottle: The aroma is loaded with heavy roasted grains along with some faint brown sugar and nuts. It pours a bright transparent copper with a one finger beige head that leaves behind a solid sheet of lacing...an impressive looking beer. The flavor starts with some nice light chocolate and caramel. Moderate roasted grains in the middle, but nowhere near as strong as the aroma would you to believe they would be. The finish has some light chocolate and roasted nuts. Medium bodied with soft carbonation.

kappldav123 (4927) - 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.
