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.

Pours amber, beige head. Aroma is malty / caramel, earthly hops. Taste, malty with some ncie chocolate notes with subtle nutty addition. Beer is well balanced, light hops giving an alsmot dark fruits flavor, with an always present nice chocolate / caramel malts. Finish leaves some light bitter hops.

JoeMcPhee (10129) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 30, 2010
Deep amber pour. The nose is softly malty and slightly spice. Soft and a touch fruity with a distinct plummy malt character. Well balanced with a soft sweetness toward the finish. It’s pretty nice - easy drinking. Not as spicy as many examples.
