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.

yngwie (16989) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JUN 17, 2015
On tap at the brewpub. A clear, brown beer topped by a dense, beige, finger thick head leaving lacing. Malty aroma with bread, some caramel and hints of pine cones. Mostly malty flavor too, rather dry, and with a decent bitterness. Some pine cones and grass too. Medium body and a nice carbonation level. Lovely bitterness in the finish. 150617

Medium body with a sticky texture. Medium bittersweet flavor with a medium bittersweet finish of moderate duration. My expectation where met.

Clear brown body, minimum creamy white head. Aroma is sweet caramel. Taste is sweet, some caramel, a bit of roastiness sneaks in. Medium body. I seem to be in the minority here, but I was very unimpressed by this one.

Dogbrick (12770) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - AUG 21, 2006
Sample at the brewpub. The beer pours a murky dark amber color with a medium thin light beige head and spotty lacing. Bready malt aroma, along with a hint of nuts. Medium-bodied and smooth with malt and caramel flavors, plus a bit of chocolate. It kind of falls off though, and the lightly bitter hops aftertaste is short-lived as well. This showed promise at first but ended up being pretty run-of-the-mill.

hopdog (12208) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 1, 2007
12oz bottle. Poured a medium copperish color with an averaged sized of white head. Aromas of toasted nuts, chocolate and light roast. Tastes of toasted nuts, chocolate, roast, and a trace of carame. This would make a decent session beer.
