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 in Church - Poured a clear dark caramel with some decent head and lacing. Smooth with malt and light roast on the palate, a hop grain body. Well balanced, light-sweet grain aroma. Liked this one!

An attractive and tasty beer. Very clean finish. Complex without being overly complex. Mixes dark coffee flavors w/ sweetness for a pleasant blend.

On draft at CBW. Poured cloudy brown in color with small beige head. Aroma is slightly toasted with some very mild hops. Taste is toasted, slightly smoked ,malts, mild hop bitterness in the finish. Thinner body. Not too complex.

Bottle. Amber through and through. That’s what this Dunkel reminded me of: a good old amber. Darker in appearance with a breadier filled aroma, but the taste was hop laced with a roasted note in the middle, bitter finisher.

Clear dark brown. Interesting take on a dunkel in that it is not overwhelming in any manner but overall just a bit plain. Flat and a bit thin with some carmel sweetness.

Clear, dark amber pour with beige, persistent foam. Sweet malt in the nose. Light fizz and slightly slick body. The taste is of caramel malt with some faint hops.

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.

Draft at the brewery. A very exciting pour, dark brown with an off-white head and carbonation racing up the sides. The nose is something I could not place, but resembles butterscotch. Body is similar with some green tea and other astringent aspects. The carbonation is great, the body is just a bit thin.

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