Huge fine & dense cream-yellow head over red-shot amber-brown beer. Caramel, dark malts and a bit vinous nose (which is rare in German beers). Also an aroma as from ivy leaves. Dry, leafy taste, old but wet brown bread, and a pinch of caramel at the end. Surprisingly little sweetness. Long dry, woody finish. Dry but medium bodied at least. No new aftertaste, finish goes on long enough. Quite good Dunkel. Products from this brewery seem to vary quite a lot, in my (limited) experience.

Bottle. Dark amber color with an ivory head. Hot, nutty malt aroma. Fruity malt flavor that seems somewhat light for a dunkel. Nice. jonas (8280) - Garching close to the monks, GERMANY - JUN 21, 2002
UPDATED: JAN 17, 2004 Re-rate: Malty roasted and nutty nose.
Red-brown, relatively low carbonation, low creamy head.
Dark fruity malt and chocolate base, hoppy aftertaste - surprisingly it is a bit like a big stout.
Medium body, smooth fine carbonated mouthfeel.
