Swing top bottle, thanks Beerhunter111! Dark Brown color. Caramel And chocolate in the aroma. Malty sweetish, bready caramelly flavor with milk chocolate. Almost Full bodied. Decent. McSherman (685) - North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - OCT 20, 2016
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! dutchbeerpages (2439) - Wilnis, NETHERLANDS - AUG 2, 2016
Prefer this over the helles even though it is less complex. Just beautiful little flavors. Sweet, iron, chalk. Nice. Cuso (8691) - Bratislava, SLOVAK REPUBLIC - FEB 1, 2015

[ As Kloster Machern Dunkel ].
[ Trade by Beerhunter111 ]. ABV: 5.2%. Clear medium to dark brown amber color with a large to huge, frothy, good lacing, mostly to fully lasting, off-white head. Aroma is moderate malty, caramel, nutty, bread. Flavour is moderate sweet and light bitter with a long duration, nutty, caramel, sweet malt, bread notes, medium dry. Body is medium, texture is oily to watery, carbonation is soft. 
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! teorn88 (7682) - Rimini, ITALY - DEC 28, 2014
BAcklog rating. Bottle at the Chriso’s May tasting, London. It pours a caramel color with a small tan head. Aroma is acidic and sour, with skunk and green apples. Taste is sour and acidic, with puke, vegetables and lemon. Badly infected, horrible mR_fr0g (12128) - Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - SEP 16, 2014
Bottle shared at Chrisso’s May 2014 tasting 25/05/2014. Thanks to Matt. Hazed burnt orange coloured pour with a halo of off white head. Aroma is earthy, putrd rotting veg, poo. Tart apples, dark malts, off veg. What the fuck is this? Palate is sharp and highish carbonation. Undrinkable. madmitch76 (24807) - , Essex, ENGLAND - JUN 13, 2014

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.
500ml bottle @ Chriso May 14 tasting, courtesy of me, thanks to Beerhunter111. Very sour, vinegar, some grains.. clearly infected.
