fantti (721) - FINLAND - NOV 4, 2014
Kaatuu lasiin colanruskeana ja "kirkkaana", noin kolmen sormuisen vaahtokukan suojaamana. Tuoksusta löytyy hyvin vahvana paahdetta ja täysjyväleipää, keskiverrosti makeaa marjaisuutta ja heikosti ruohoa ja kukkaisuutta. Maussa paahdetta, ruisleipää ja makeaa hunajaisuutta on juuri sopivassa tasapainossa, kukkaisuuden tullessa hentona mukaan kuvaan jälkimaussa. Suutuntuma on makeahko ja hieman ohut, humala potkaisee hieman lopussa. Hyvä tumma lager, jossa olisi ehkä sen 0,5% saanut olla lisää alkoholia, joka olisi tuonut täyteläisyyttä. Tyyylinsä parhaita, vaikka tummat lagerit ovat itselle hieman tylsiä.

Borresteijn (4860) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - OCT 30, 2014
50cl Bottle from douberd, thanks Christos! Clear dark chestnut brown colour, creamy beige head. Aroma of cocoa, toast, nuts, some roasted malts, light fruity. Flavour is medium sweet, malty, some dark fruits, mostly toast and a hint of coffee-like roast, nice bitterness, light nutty, decent bitter finish. Light-bodied. Good.

Marheb (2267) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 20, 2014
(Bue sur place): Des grains torréfiés hyper secs nous accueillent pour laisser place à des sucres rôtis qui s’ouvrent exponentiellement et se prolongent en bouche. Un liquide qui cache sa sécheresse à l’entrée et sa richesse à la fin, ça fonctionne et c’est délicieux.

MartinT (8024) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 17, 2014
My Bottom Line:
Cherries, earthen forests, coffee and toast coalesce in this initially dry then chewy Dunkel. Quite the trekking experience!

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A lingering head of foam covers the dark brown with ochre highlights.
-The aroma on this one leaps out of the pint glass.
-The flavor profile is able to follow through as well. Expertly crafted.
-The soft bubbling makes the palate focus on the malt and hop interplay.
-Drinkability is as high as the pleasure gotten from every sip.

On tap at the kloster.

eduardovl (926) - SWITZERLAND - OCT 14, 2014
500ml served in a pokal glass. A: Pours a deep amber clear color forming a small yellow head leaving some lacings S: Sweet, smoky, toffee and roasted. Fruity too. Not bad at all T: Sweet upfront, very toffee. Grapes, sweet grains, yeasts. Very bready M: Light to medium and bit molasses body. Sweet toffee upfront and very mild bitter aftertaste O: Good drinkability. Bit too sweet but nice beer [ BA Review @ 8/1/2012 ]

JulienHuxley (3344) - Hilversum, NETHERLANDS - OCT 11, 2014
Bottle at Cafe Brecht. Clear deep brown pour with med foamy white head. Aroma is nutty, really nice nutty character, light fruity aromas, light yeastiness, pretty clean overall, light toasted notes. Taste is sweet, chewy the maltiness, toasty and nutty. Palate is med-full bodied but still fluffy, really.
