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.

Draft at the brewpub. Pours a coke brown with no head. Aroma is slightly roasty but thin. Flavor is a roasted peatish malt taste that’s slightly thin.

Pours dark red with little to no white head, aroma has notes of some slight caramel, spice, earth, some slight buttery notes. Taste is some weird buttery notes, with a touch of caramel, spice, some bread. Ok, but definitely a bit off.

Thanks to Tedwarhc for this bottle. Served in a tulip. Pours a bright light copper-brown color with a very, very thin white head and only a bubble or two on top after a few seconds. No lacing. The nose brings some light caramel and bread crust along with faint earthy hops. Flavor is a nice combination of lightly-toasted bread and very mild caramel along with a touch of sweetness and light hops. Light to medium body with moderate carbonation; fairly chewy. Refreshing bitterness on the back-end. Good brew. Serving type: bottle

DiarmaidBHK (5672) - Lewisburg, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 1, 2011
Pours brownish from tap with a thin note of caramel on the nose. There’s a slight estery note on the tongue but it’s buried down pretty deep.

can8ianben (1577) - State College, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 17, 2011
Full bodied, sweet, very malty, and pleasant belgian spicey notes. Certainly not the most complex beer, but a decent offering.

Deep brown with minimal head. Mild malty aroma. Hint of roasted character. Slightly nutty.

Draft. Poured a copper amber color. Aroma of sweeter malts and subtle hops. Taste is lite sweetness and lite bitterness. Lighter bodied. Have always like this one. Smooth tasting and the flaovor is there for a lite alcohol beer. Nice balance of malt and hops.

2.5
robgibbens (432) - Gaithersburg, Maryland, USA - JUN 11, 2011
Pours a dark amber and is still clear enough to see through. The head was gone instantly. Caramel and bready notes. Taste is barely bitter with a clean finish. Average but very refreshing.

On tap at brew pub. Amber with thin head. Not much aroma. Flavor is caramel and toffee. Nice sessionable dunkel.

Draft - Medium brown color, ample head. Mild aroma, nice flavor with the lightness of a lager.
