Brauerei Berghammer from Oberndorf has a Kupfer [copper] beer, which says it’s unfiltriert and naturtrüb [unfiltered] & [naturally cloudy]. It’s a dirty white, vanilla-colored head under a red-brown-orange beer, dark copper. Aroma is all malt, caramel, Münchner of course with a hint of bitterness behind it. The initial flavor is sweet and bitter simultaneously. It’s sweetness is a pure roasted barley maltiness around the back and front of the tongue, with a slight sourness added in the back, too. I get bitterness on the front and sides. It’s got the same not-too-thick, not-too-thin mouthfeel of the Winkler Kupfer. To tell the truth, I can’t distinguish the Winkler from the Berghammer Kupfer. This one is slightly bitterer and leaves a bitter, slightly sour aftertaste. Overall, a really good beer, and again, I wouldn’t travel to get it, or order a lot of it online, but if I were in the area, I’d love to try it fresh on tap.

Bottle, thanks pivnizub. Clear dark copper with a few floaties, impressive golden foam. Aromatic hop nose. Citric and dry grassy entry, toasted bread. Dry hop mouthfeel, citric exhaling. Medium bozy fizzly mouthfeel. Nice!

pivnizub (8591) - Bochum, Porúří, GERMANY - JUL 18, 2008
Bügelverschlußflasche (purchased at the Brauereigasthof): Slightly hazy, amber - not copper - coloured, extremely stable, rocky beige head; grassy hoppy nose with a barnyardy background and a tinge of roasted malt; solid bitter-sweet flavour, soft F, light to medium bodied; lingering hoppy finish, balanced by sweet caramel and a tinge of yeast. Tastes far better than it smells........

Swing-top bottle. Toffee malt and hay/light barnyard aroma - very nice. Slightly hazy dark amber color with large head. Sweet toffee malt and moderately bitter grass/fresh hay hops. Mild cola aftertaste. An excellent dunkel.

kappldav123 (4596) - Nordhausen, GERMANY - DEC 12, 2010
Bottle looks simple, but good, the beer in the glass dark, modest turbid, nice head. Starts strong, malty fruity, modest dry, a bit floury, but that get better in the finish. Well balanced, warming, quite drinkable. Really nice!

MoritzF (8250) - Bochum, GERMANY - MAY 11, 2008
(swing top bottle) Hazy, amber colour with a huge and persistent light-beige foamy head. Light-sweet and slightly yeasty toast-malty aroma, slightly leafy with caramel, rounded up with spicy herbal hops. Light-bitter flavour, quite slim for an abv of 5.6% but it is never watery, crispy on the tongue. Toasty malty taste with caramel and balanced herbal hoppy flavours; dry, slightly toasted and moderately bitter finish with pleasant herbal and slightly spicy hoppy notes. Not too fat, but well rounded hoppy Dunkel (08.05.08).

KnutAlbert (5789) - Oslo, NORWAY - JUN 23, 2013
Bottle in Bavaria. Malty aroma. Hazy red/brown. Bittersett, malty. Some burned sugar. Rich, smooth, a nice little bite in the tail. Worth seeking out.

Quack-Duck (7523) - Down South, GERMANY - JUN 7, 2008
bottle, traded with pivnizub - díky! Hazy amber colour, large and creamy head. Full-bodied, very spicy with flavours of malt and intensive hoppy flavours. Shy hints of caramel and roasetd malt. Quite hoppy for a Dunkel.

Erzengel (1940) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - DEC 30, 2013
Schöne kastanienbraune Note und leicht beiger, stabiler Schaum. Der Geruch ist frisch-hopfig-malzig und leicht säuerlich. Im Antrunk ist das Bier etwas flach. Leichte, süßliche Malzaromen zu schmecken. Der Hauptteil ist trocken-malzig und frisch-grasig herb. Die malzige Note tritt aber unter der Herbe deutlich zurück. Im Nachgeschmack wird das Bier dann wieder süßlicher und etwas malzig, die angenehme leichte herbe ist aber allgegenwärtig und leicht dominant. Auf der Zunge bleibt eine grasig-herbe Note zurück.
--> Interessantes Bier. Sehr süffig-erfrischend, aber auch erstaunlich herb.
Test vom 1.10.2008, Gebinde: Glasflasche Noten: 12,11,12,10,12,11 - 11,15
