sparkster (17) - , - AUG 12, 2008
Pours a nutbrown liquid with a nice, tan head. Aroma is malt and caramel. Bitterness is low, not many hops here. Taste is roasted malts and caramel, but its quite smooth , only gets a bit dry towards the end. Pretty good value, these sell for around 1€ /50 cl bottle, in "El Corte ingles" in spain.

Piepenhenrich (1124) - Steinbach, GERMANY - OCT 8, 2017
From tap in Klosterschänke, Bad Homburg, Germany. Pours dark brown with some head, aroma and flavor of roasted malts, well-balanced with a gentle bitter note. Goes extremely well with some savory German traditional food.

Redish bronze pour, tan head. Nose is dark malt. Middle is dark kilned malt, caramel, some cherries. Finish is smooth soothing malt.

mariuszek (1470) - Gdynia, POLAND - SEP 4, 2017
Pours chestnut color with medium head, good lacing. Slight caramel in aroma and cherries, dried fruits, wood, even a bit of smoke. Tanic, dry, fruity taste, medium body. Great beer.

corkyrory66 (2163) - BELGIUM - AUG 23, 2017
Dunkel de 4,7 % abv, en format 50 cl, de cette brasserie qui remonte à 1050 (la plus ancienne brasserie abbatiale d’Allemagne). Mon exemplaire était à 8 mois avant sa date. Couleur acajou, et roux en transparence. Bulles fines, partout, vives. Mousse beige, crémeuse, stable à 5 mm. Arômes de malt cara, choco, fane de pommes de terre, foin. 1ère bouche souple, à la belle entame malt/levure/chocolat, avec une pointe de cannelle. Arrière-bouche avec une touche fumée délicate, très originale. 2ème avec malt, cannelle, et la pointe fumée. Arrière-bouche agréable, mais peu complexe. 3ème plus pleine, savoureuse. Arrière-bouche avec une pointe de noisettes. Longueur aux très belles nuances, mais trop ténue. Jambes fines, serrées, groupées. Levure fine, ligne correcte. Alcool un peu court, il peine vraiment sur la longueur. Finale agréable. CONCLUSION : cette dunkle affiche des saveurs originales et très agréables, mais elle est vraiment trop ténue pour passer la rampe … (8/3/8/3/17)

UPDATED: AUG 20, 2017 Bevuta in abbazia. Forse sono capitato nel giorno sbagliato perché era slavata, priva di corpo e con note di caramello e caffè molto leggere. Deluso ma con beneficio del dubbio.

Cerveza color café claro con corona de espuma de baja retención. Con aroma maltas tostadas y dulce. Al paladar consistencia suave fácil de beber, notas a maltas tostadas con suave toque dulce que no perdura en el paladar. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

toscanoigor (297) - Belo Horizonte, BRAZIL - JUN 29, 2017
Cerveja marrom escura, com tons avermelhados. Espuma de boa formação e média duração. Aroma de malte, toffee, com leves notas de torra e café. Sabor acompanha: malte, caramelo e leves notas de torrado, final com amargor leve, mas persistente no retrogosto. Ótima drinkabilidade, tem um corpo marcante, mas é bem leve, equilibrada. Redondinha

tgrtnr (281) - Augsburg, Bavaria, GERMANY - JUN 12, 2017
500 ml bottle, served in mug. Dark brown-red colour, big fluffy head. Dark bread, roasted malt, a bit coffee, ends with a bit lemon. Very nice and balanced taste, malty and slightly bitter, slightly sour. Nice palate, very smooth. Medium body, oily texture. Great Dunkles!
