Moravius (481) - Berlin, GERMANY - MAR 25, 2014
Flasche von Hopfen & Malz, Berlin-Wedding. - Kastanienbraun mit rötlichem Schimmer, reichlich lockerer Schaum. - In der Nase feine dunkle Frucht, Röstmalz, Karamel. - Weicher, röstmalzig-herber Antrunk mit zart fruchtiger Note (Kirsche) und gerösteten Haselnüssen. Warme aber nicht dicke Karamelsüße; kerniger Malzkörper. Gut rezent. Weiches, volles Mundgefühl, aber nicht dick. Im Abgang würziger fränkischer Hopfen mit pfeffrigen Spitzen. Für ein Dunkles recht deutlicher, aromatisch röstmalzbitterer Nachtrunk. - Ein wenig kräftiger als das dunkle Export derselben Brauerei; für ein Märzen enorm süffig. Meisterhaft.

Dedollewaitor (13913) - Odense, DENMARK - APR 9, 2013
Bottle @ Hopfen & Malz, Berlin. Pours ruby amber with a creamy head. Fruit, ashes, rye-bread and caramel. Medium bodied. Smooth and tasty.

MoritzF (8493) - Bochum, GERMANY - JAN 31, 2013
(bottle) Hazy, almost copper colour with a beige medium-sized foamy head. Roasty malty aroma with notes of caramel, walnuts, dark bread and a tinge of spicy hops in the background. Roasty bitter flavour, medium to light bodied with a soft carbonation. Robust roasty malt-character with notes of walnuts, caramel and cacao, accompanied by mildly herbal accents leading into a dry and roasty bitter finish with present notes of dark chocolate in the aftertaste. A very flavourful, not too sweet Dunkel from Franconia. 16.I.13

pivnizub (8853) - Bochum, Porúří, GERMANY - JAN 27, 2013
Bottle (excavated by Stefan!!!): Hazy, deep reddish-amber coloured, bigger stable tanned fluffy head, moderate to solid roasty-walnutty nose, forgotten hops detectable, molecular chocolatey traces show up as well; moderate bitter-sweet flavour, nearly medium bodied; dry nutty-toasty finish with fruity traces. Wow, what a fine, fine session beer from - what else - Franconia....

Quack-Duck (7911) - Down South, GERMANY - NOV 24, 2012
bottle from Landbierparadies. Clear deep brown colour, mid-sized beige head. Dark malts, caramel, shy sweet ness combined with a nice hoppy touch, quite aromatic, resiny-grassy. A very nice and rather dark Festbier. More of a Dunkel than a Märzen.

Koelschtrinker (10645) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - JUN 1, 2011
Das Festbier gleicht dem Export enorm, so ist auch hier eine deutliche Säuerlichkeit zu vernehmen, die aber nicht an die des Exports heranreicht. Auch ist die Malzigkeit etwas stärker, dementsprechend das Bier besonders im späteren Teil würziger. Insgesamt ist das Bier runder, vor allem die toffeeartige Röstigkeit im Abgang gefällt, die Säuerlichkeit kann das Aroma hier nicht beeinflussen. Rundes Bier, das gefällt. 7/11/11/12/9/11

bierkoning (10201) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - JAN 2, 2007
Bottle. Dark brown color. malty aroma with chocolate and loads of butter. Malty sweet, buttery flavor with caramel and chocolate. Some caramelly bitterness in the aftertaste, mixed with creme de cacao. Very rural beer with a rather dirty mouthfeel.
