330 ml. bottle shared with Kraddel. Picked up for me from a monastery that is open to secular retreats. Apparently this a table beer that monks drink, brewed to their old recipe more or less. Blackish chestnut / copper dark brown, tanned head that quickly disappears. Nose iron, syrup, Coca-Cola syrup, cheap sticky malts, varnish, chocolate sauce. Taste is very sweet & reminiscent of coca-cola, lots of sweeteners, syrup like Coca-Cola / Pepsi, bread, sugar, very sweet, very cheap chocolate syrup. Body is akin to Coca-Cola / Pepsi / syrupy. Compared to a soft drink this is decent but as beer it is pretty worthless. I do think that they were going more for a soft drink than a beer.

The brown one in this locally distributed range of old-fashioned, almost shy table beers, with crispy, deep beige, quickly dissolving head and very dark chestnut colour with ruby hue. Weak malt aroma, some bitter chocolate, caramel and coffee grounds, candi sugar and perhaps a very faint hint of hops. Very light, almost neutral malt taste, sweetish, bit candi-like, metallic, flowery, thin and watery as any table beer, without any finish to speak of. Nothing extraordinary, typical (very) low profile like any old people’s table beer and in that respect serving its purpose without further ambition, but I liked the blonde a little bit better.

Erzengel (4948) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - JUN 6, 2013
Dunkelbraun mit beigem Schaum. Der Antrunk ist weich-mild, leicht malzig. Zum Hauptteil kommt eine leichte herbe Note hinzu, allerdings bleibt das Bier sehr flach. Recht wässrig, aber ohne eine störende Süßstoffnote, obwohl der Süßstoff ganz leicht spürbar ist. Der Nachgeschmack ist mittellang, aber recht schnell wässrig werdend. --> mäßiges dunkles Tafelbier - das Faro von Bockor ist da deutlich aromatischer!
