Altenmunster Winterbier Dunkel

Today's Christmas Beer is a little different from the others.  It's the Altenmunster Winterbier Dunkel from the Allgauer Brauhaus from Kempten, Germany About an hour South and West of Munich.

Not only is the bottle different but this beer pours a deep reddish brown with a caramel colored head that quickly disappeared.  The aroma is smoky malt and that carries over into the taste which is more smoky caramel malt with a slightly hoppy clean finish.  Not much spices here but definitely more in the direction of what I've come to know as a Christmas Beer.  A great change of pace from the golden Christmas Beers of the last few posts.
