On tap at Schiphol. Deep clear amber, medium head. Fruity and nutty caramel, semi-sweet. Not bad for a macrobrew.

Bottle. Clear copper pour with thin white head. Aroma is quite malty, lots of caramel notes, light toasted malt aromas, no real hop presence. Taste is sweet, nice toasty bitterness to balance it out, entirely malt forward but not cloying. Decent enough, not particularly interesting though.

Dutch style beer, very sweet with no balance. Aftertaste is like eating a lumb of sugar. Idk, not my thing.

30cl bottle at home. Clear amber with a medium white head which disappeared pretty quick. Medium body with light to moderate carbonation. Sweet with some bitter notes. Caramel, nuts and dark fruits. A decent Dutch brew.

Van de tap in een restaurantje in Wylre met uitzicht op de Brand brouwerij. Roodbruine kleur en een mooie kraag. Moutig caramellig aroma, idem smaak. Smaakte me goed. Moet eens de flessenversie proberen.

markextrae (680) - NETHERLANDS - DEC 15, 2013
from tap, clear amber coloured pour with big white head. medium carbonated. Malty aroma, reminded me of apple juice somehow. Full palate, bit bitter. Finish is bitter sweetening off.

Erzengel (1901) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - DEC 14, 2013
Schöne kastanienbraune Farbe und malzig-würziger Geruch. Der Antrunk ist relativ süßlich-malzig mit einer angenehmen herben Note, die sich zum Hauptteil hin noch etwas verstärkt. Der Hauptteil ist mild-malzig und von dieser malzigen Süße dominiert, dass die sngenehme Herbe kaum darunter hervortreten kann. Auf der Zunge bleibt eine relativ malzig-klebrige Note mit einer leckeren, aber sehr zurückgedränkten Herbe
--> Für meinen Geschmack viel zu viel Zucker hinzugefügt. Weniger wäre hier mehr gewesen. Ansonsten eigentlich ganz lecker!
Test vom 6.5.2009, Gebinde: Glasflasche Noten: 12,10,11,7,12,9 - 9,60

Smells of malt and not much else. Taste is caramel, toasted malt. Not bad but not all that interesting.
