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.

Pours a filtered hazelnut brown color, with a huge, spongy head, from which big bubbles emerge. Smells of whole grain bread, with a toasty note to it, topped of by copper and wood bark. The nose got a restraint toffee sweetness to it, complimenting the rich dark malts perfectly. Has a very soft mouthfeel with medium carbonation, revealing a bubbly quality during the finish. Tastes mirrors the nose to a certain degree, the profound malts draw most of the attention, with a mild acidity adding to its depth. Its pleasant sour note evolves to a toffee peak during the finish, evoking the image of caramelized grapes being dipped into bakers chocolate. A leafy quality, as well as a mineralic carbonation diversify this impression, while the beer remains expectedly well balanced as expected. Well made Dunkel, which got a nice twist to it, while integrating a pleasant depth.

0,5l Flasche. Dunkles Bier mit kleiner beiger Schaumkrone. Intensiver Geruch nach Röstmalzen. Das wird auch im Geschmack bestätigt, toller Geschmack nach Bitterschokolade und Röstmalzen. Lecker!

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.

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.

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.

hauxe (333) - Butzbach, GERMANY - NOV 14, 2015
A hearty roasted malt aroma greets the nose. Pours red-brown into the bottle, and leaves a bubbly head that rapidly fades away. Moderate carbonation, pleasantly bitter, smooth, and yet robust with faint caramel aftertastes. Very pleasant sipping.

Butelka 0,5l spożyta w domu. Kolor brązowy, klarowny, piana ładna dość szybko opada zostawia ślady na szkle. Aromat wędzonki i suszonych śliwek a w smaku lekki wytrawny karmel bez nadmiernej słodyczy co jest dużym plusem w zalewie przesłodzonych ciemnych piw. Na podniebieniu łagodna wytrawność z chlebem i wędzoną śliwką. Bardzo dobre piwo.
