A very interesting beer. Pours a beautiful clear amber red. Smells of black cherries and caramel. Taste is similar, cherries, caramel and vanilla. Had on New Years.

0.5l bottle. Dark amber body, off white head. Sweet malty aroma, mostly toast and caramel, but there is some floral hoppyness too. Taste reflects the aroma. Mostly sweet caramely, toasty malts but the finish has some floral hops in it. Very nice dunkel. I like 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. drmet (952) - Mecklenburg-Vorpommern, GERMANY - AUG 28, 2015

Good Dunkel,the weltenburger blows the shit out of it though hauxe (708) - Butzbach, Hesse, GERMANY - NOV 14, 2015
A hearty roasted malt aroma greets the nose. Pours red-brown into the bottle, and leaves a bubbly head that rapidly fades away. Moderate carbonation, pleasantly bitter, smooth, and yet robust with faint caramel aftertastes. Very pleasant sipping.

Butelka 0,5l spożyta w domu. Kolor brązowy, klarowny, piana ładna dość szybko opada zostawia ślady na szkle. Aromat wędzonki i suszonych śliwek a w smaku lekki wytrawny karmel bez nadmiernej słodyczy co jest dużym plusem w zalewie przesłodzonych ciemnych piw. Na podniebieniu łagodna wytrawność z chlebem i wędzoną śliwką. Bardzo dobre piwo. jbrus (4990) - Delft, NETHERLANDS - JUL 9, 2009

, thanks DerDoppelbock. Malty aroma with toffee notes and a hint of smoke. Brown colour, beige head, good lace. Light sweet, quite malty, subtle smoke, toffee, butterscotch, light bitterness. Medium to full body for a Dunkel. Very good example of the style.
Bottle picked up at SL, thanks matt for the recommendation... Swing top bottle, nice pop off the top. Poured into a snifter, nice red color good head. Aroma of some light smoke and malt. Taste is nice... light roasted malts, light smoke, light spice. Texture is a little thin but not watery. Overall a good beer CanIHave4Beers (4184) - Pouring Bus, Iowa, USA - DEC 12, 2009
I almost didn’t buy this because I thought it was just old bottles of Monks Fest. I’m glad I recognized the subtle differences in the label (i.e. the name of the beer) The beer pours with a medium fluffy head that leaves a good lace, the color is a brilliant orange-ish red. The aroma has some hay and some mild chocolate with some graininess and light whiffs of noble hops. The flavor is husky and has plenty of herbal hops and some good chocolate notes. There is also a spicy & sweet candy thing going on in the background that is pretty good as well. The palate is rich but very smooth (real smooth?) This is another very nice beer from this brewery, I hope these seasonals from weissenoher keep popping up around Des Moines. Pwn3d (1962) - Manhattan, New York, USA - JAN 7, 2010
On tap at rattle n hum. Dark brown, bitter malt tangy flavor. Incredibly smooth and sessionable. Thortheviking loved this shitzit.
