A dark beer, light and sweet and full bodied, highly fermented, very malty aroma. The slight Hpfennote rounds out the flavor and gives this drink a monastery special character. A beer in the good old custom of the monastery.

CanCrusher (969) - Ilirska Bistrica, SLOVENIA - NOV 20, 2016
Bottle 0,50L. Clear amber color with average big, frothy, off-white head. Aroma of caramel and milk chocolate. Taste starts light sweet and turns to medium sweet at the finish. There are notes of caramel and milk chocolate in taste, too. Light to medium body, watery texture, soft carbonation. Too sweet for my taste and too weak on the body.

UPDATED: JUL 12, 2016 Draft at Brauhaus Schmitz. Mostly clear deep chestnut amber pour with some soft beige foam. Brown bready caramel malts. Raisins. Dates. Apple peels. Toffee. Red beets. Hazelnuts. Spicy dry hops balance out the dark sugars in the finish. Works.

En mild sdlig l, med meget mild humle. Nsten ingen kulsyre. God smag, dog ikke det store sus.

Idiosynkrasie (6714) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - DEC 31, 2015
500ml bottle [No. 2 of a tripartite mini-series kindly donated by bartlebier, thank you very much!]. Clear chestnut colour with ruby red glimmer and huge, thick, creamy, fairly lasting, moderately lacing, beige head. Roasty dark malty aroma with a nuttily touch, some cocoa. Taste is dry dark malty, subtle sweetness, hints of cocoa, a nuttily touch. Clean, precise, well controlled sweetness. Good.

tnkw01 (1729) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - SEP 23, 2015
Bottle. Chestnut brown with a large head. Aroma is a nutty, malty fare with hints of grains and a whiff of dried fruit. Taste is slightly sweet up front with roasted grains in the middle and a mellow finish.

bartlebier (3562) - Belchium im Biersgau, GERMANY - AUG 26, 2015
50cl bottles 06-07/2015 courtesy of brewery, danke. - Thinner shoesole brown pour, vivid foam. Dry roast and a fruity acidity of apple peel and chestnut in the nose, very dry toast, shrub and woody caramels in taste. Well drinkable thanks to an attenuated absence of style-typical Dunkel sweetness, with a late grassy hop sting.

Pours dark amber from bottle with robust tan head. Nice malty aroma though let the beer warm a bit to get the full effect. Taste is not the greatest though. Heavily carbonated, watery hints of adjuncts, malty flavor somewhat suppressed and potent though transient noble hop bitterness at the end. Body dominated by carbonation. Overall the malt flavor just didn't punch through as with other dark lagers. Wouldn't buy again. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
