COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
About 150 years ago, this dark style lager was first brewed in Munich, Germany. Our version is fairly dark in color, but don’t be afraid. It is a perfect example that dark beers are not always strong beers. The body is surprisingly mellow, and the alcohol content is a bit lower than most people might think. It has a wonderfully clean and roasty aroma. Hop bitterness levels are kept in line, but is has a noticeable hop flavor. Our Pious Monk Dunkel finishes crisp and clean as a lager should.

On tap at World Beer Festival in Cleveland. Not my favorite, light easy to drink lager.

UPDATED: JUL 30, 2013 Draft. Good color for style. Decent malt taste, but seemed a little more watery than other dunkels I?ve had, which is probably because of the lower ABV they?re trying to hit. For a session beer has a very good taste though. Give it a try if you?re looking for an easy drinking beer without getting wasted and aren?t a fan of hops, but want something more substantial than a light lager.

Draft. Dark copper with little head. Nose is lightly floral. Taste is nutty, bready with a salty kind of finish. Strangely like tostitos but in a good way. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Split a 12 oz bottle with friends. Poured a dark amber color with a small off-white head. Aroma was some notes of roasted malts, some sweetness, touch of light chocolate. Flavor was a nice earthy hop character with some roasted malts, sweetness. Pretty easy to drink. Enjoyable.

Draft at the brewpub. Pours a clear dark amber color with a medium sized creamy tan head. Good head retention. Aroma of toasted malts and raisin. The taste is raisins, caramel, stone fruits. Medium bodied.

Solid dunkle, nice creamy dark flavor and good body for a lager. Good for style. Not overly sweet like some dunkel a can be. Pretty spot on and great in quantities.

coolpop (1394) - Birmingham, Alabama, USA - JAN 21, 2013
Draft. Poured a muddy amber brown with a medium-sized tan head that left some lacing. Aroma and flavor were roasty malt, a bit of nuttiness, some caramel, toffee, molasses. Body was a bit thin. Pretty solid dunkel, just not as complex as others I’ve tried.

This is a nice example of a dunkel. Good Pittsburgh brew. Would like to know more by them. Dark malt, medium hop, pine and caramel sweetness to it.

Clear, light brown. Light, nutty nose. Clean, sessionable palate with a subtle malt and nut character. Delicious! Could drink this all day!
