From the oldest Monestery-Brewery in the world -- brewing since 1050 AD. Little did I know that the beer would also taste like it was made in 1050. The first pour was encouraging. It has a beautiful mahogany color and a lightly sweet brown sugar aroma. The aroma, however, was way too faint for my tastes. The was virtually no head and it dissapated very quickly. The taste was nothing to write the Monestery about. The flavor was entirely too watery with the sole flavors being roasted and overly roasted one. I won’t be purchasing this one again. Big disappointment.

500ml bottle. Damn fine looking pour, almost opaque caramel colored body that supports a large dense tan head. The aroma is sweet chocolate, some raisins and a bit of sweet wort. The flavor is caramel, cocoa and raisins. A bit of let down. Lively carbonation, medium body. Ok but it is no Capital Dunkel.

Reddish brown in color with a creamy off white head. Rich caramel, coffee, chocolate aroma. Dark roasted malt flavor with hints of bitter baker’s chocolate. A dunkel with plenty of character.

Bottle. A strong malty aroma of chocolate and coffee. Dark reddish brown color with nice head. A sweet carmelly flavor and a wonderful balance. One of the best dunkles I have ever had!

wnhay (722) - Princeton, New Jersey, USA - JUN 2, 2005
Bottle. Nice brown pour with a relatively thin brown head. Looks like the Doppelbock. Smells like chocolate, caramel and coffee. The taste was great for a low alcohol beer with a terrific caramel and wine mouthfeel. What a pleasant surprise.

(on bottle; thanx Yogi) Brandy brown, maybe at bit darker. Aroma of malts and a twik of sour mash. The coarbonation is high, but is balanced good by a fist full of good malts. Has a child-like, milkchocolately finish; my kid at 1 year diged it a lot.
