Das Dunkle der Klosterbrauerei Machern an der Mosel ist dunkelbraun, etwas rötlich, leicht trüb mit einem schönen sahnigen Schaum. Es riecht frisch, (röst)malzig, leicht brotig und karamellig. Der Geschmack ist leicht süß, karamellig mit Aromen von Milchschokolade und Sahnebonbons, was wunderbar zur weichen Textur passt. Dabei ordentlich süffig. Gutes Bier!

Prefer this over the helles even though it is less complex. Just beautiful little flavors. Sweet, iron, chalk. Nice.

Erzengel (8447) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - JAN 8, 2015
Many thanks to Beerhunter111 for this 0,5l bottle. Best before 20.01.2015. Malty-smooth beginning. Fresh, easy to drink. A malty, slightly roasted and nice liquorice-dry aroma appears in the mainpart, but stays quite low below the quite dry malty body. The aftertaste is long, nice dry malty. Full-bodied, nice and round. Hints of nuts, dry caramel, not much sweetness. Great and refreshing Dunkel!

Tasting at the ever gracious ChrisO’s. Hazy deep amber beer, tidy pale cream coloured head. Palate is airy and dry. Fine carbonation. Some caramel and dried fruits amid the horrible infection flavours. Light finish. Very bad indeed.
