Maker: Klosterbrauerei Weißenohe,Weißenohe, Germany ***
Beer: Bonifatius Dunkel (bottled, 500ml) ***
Style: Dunkles ***
ALC.VOL.: 5.1% ***
Colour: Dark mahogany, clear; huge beige head. ***
Nose: Rye bread, caramel, mild roasted malts. ***
Texture: Medium body, hardly watery. ***
Taste: Some roasted malts, chocolate, caramel, complemented by floral hops. The latter grow stringer towards the middle, bitterness however is very moderate. Light caramel in the background. Dark chocolate, roasted malts in the finish, a bit more bitter than before. Aftertaste pretty much the same, with warm caramel lasting the longest. ***
Impressions: Perfectly adequate Dunkel with a pleasantly chocolaty bent; not very complex, but very satisfying. A beer for the later afternoon. Foerdifuxx (353) - Franconia, GERMANY - MAY 29, 2015
Poured into the glass it shows a red-amber colour and a creme coloured head. Aromas of grain, roasted malt and, in my opinion, more resiny than grasy hops. Flavours of caramel, roasted malt and some minerals. A fine bitter finish with a bit of smoked ham, not very intense. Body is okay, could be a bit heavier. straight forward and down-home beer with a clear focus on the malt. i like it. klm1 (1501) - Bled/SF, - APR 13, 2015
Dark brown colour with tiny off-white head. Aroma of roasted malts, little hops and some caramel notes. Similar are flavours. Medium body, low carbonation and bitterness. Drinkable but still not superlative.
Lore (2665) - Budapest, HUNGARY - DEC 25, 2014
mahogany colour, moderate sized creamy beige-ish head, which disappears surprisingly quickly; aroma of rye bread, roasted nuts; slight cocoa notes, minimal grassy hops and some fruitiness; taste is the same; correct dunkel, but nothing extra zvikar (6068) - Ramat Gan, ISRAEL - DEC 13, 2014

Copper color and slightly hazy. Thin tan head. Malt and slight alcohol sweet aroma. Very tasty and no hint of the alcohol in the malty taste. Dry finish.

500 ml bottle. Pours brick-red, clear, eggshell head. Nose is bready, hints of plum and apricot, whiskey malt notes. Exceptionally smooth body, a loaf of spiced bread in a glass. Clean finish. Love it. tnkw01 (1753) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - NOV 15, 2014
Bottle. The Monk’s Christmas version. Medium to dark brown. Small head. Rum cake and dried fruit aroma. Taste is a pleasant malty sweet flavor. Nice beer.
