pivnizub (8770) - Bochum, Porúří, GERMANY - MAR 25, 2013
Bottle: Clear, amber coloured, quickly collapsing loose off-white head, burnt malt (with a coffeish touch ) and some lost hops in the nose; mild sweetish and bitterish flavour, quite light bodied for a beer of 5.9%; slightly lingering spicy-malty finish with a low bitterness and a slightly warming alcoholic touch. Drinkable, but disappointing…

kevnic2008 (7786) - Baden-Baden, GERMANY - MAR 20, 2013
Mid amber in colour. Malty, nutty, bready aroma. Mid roasted malt flavour allied to fruits and a modicum of toffee/caramel.

rosenbergh (6665) - Tampere, FINLAND - MAR 8, 2013
330 ml bottle. L132023K. BB 11/2013. From mein-biershop.de.
Clear bronze colour with a small off-white head. Sweetish caramel malty aroma. The flavour is pretty much the same. Quite simple caramel sweet malty Lager. Mild bitterness and lots of toffee sweetness. Nothing original but on the other hand nothing’s wrong with this. What makes this Arschkalt is kind of a mystery to me. Maybe the name is the gimmick... Well, it’s so obvious... I’ll shut up and...

Fine dark Beer. Not to dark but really rich and malty in taste. Seems like a seasonal beer - sadly ;)

altonbrownd (3735) - Brussels, BELGIUM - FEB 2, 2013
Bottle from Drinks of the World Zurich. Nice amber body. Malty, caramel nose. Taste is malts, wheat, nuts, caramel. Nice and roasty. Not real complicated but quite nice. Underrated.

Brandman (2062) - Helsinki, FINLAND - FEB 1, 2013
Dark copper body, white head. Aroma has harsh malt and tobacco. Metally malt, strange strong spice. Bit unpleasant. Cold, thin.

MoritzF (8456) - Bochum, GERMANY - JAN 31, 2013
(bottle, 33cl) Clear, dark amber colour with a medium-sized tanned foamy head. Toast-malty and slightly nutty aroma with perfumed notes of caramel/toffee. Moderately sweet and slightly bitter flavour, medium to light bodied with a moderate carbonation. Toasty, if not a bit burnt malty aroma with notes of caramel and a tinge of nuts, hops show up towards the sweet and delicately bitter finish. Has something of a very diluted dark Bock, although not overly exciting. 23.I.13
