TGL (3) - GERMANY - AUG 12, 2014 does not count
On tap at Bierbörse Mainz, 0,4. Very dark, but low CO2, moldy and stale. I like every kind of Dunkles, but didn´t finish this one. Rather sweet in the beginning, but lacking body and bitter, unacceptable finish. Won´t try this one again.

ThirstyBird (1542) - Düsseldorf, GERMANY - JAN 10, 2014
Thanks to erzengel for this bottle! Pours a clear orangish brown with a huge tan head. The smell is roasted malt, bread, chocolate and some fruit. The taste is a bit of caramel, roasted malt, chocolate...a very nice blend of a mild malt sweetness and a nice roast dryness. Fairly light in body with some slickness to it and nice fine yet prickly carbonation. Wow...a great dunkel!

Erzengel (2561) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - OCT 25, 2013
Süß-säuerlicher Geruch, schöne, leicht trübe bernstein-braune Farbe. Sehr interessanter Antrunk - erst säuerlich-neutral und dann entfaltet sich innerhalb weniger Sekunden ein richtig vollmundiger, süffig-cremiger, aber nach diesem Antrunk erschlagender Hauptteil. Säuerliche Röstmalzaromen, cremiger Kaffee mit cremiger Milchschokolade. Komplexe, leckere Aromen. Der Nachgeschmack ist langanhaltend, schön ausgewogen röstmalzig-herb und schön nach Espresso mit Schokolade. Für meinen Geschmack ein wunderbares Bier! -->Für Liebhaber cremiger Röstmalzbiere sehr zu empfehlen! (Test vom 9.7.2008) --> 12,14,13,14,12,14 - 13,55

Grima (2089) - Saarburg, Rhineland-Palatinate, GERMANY - FEB 25, 2011
Shiny dark amber color with a flat, short-lived head. The smell is much malty with caramel and toffe. Just great. It starts very malty with a slightly sour note. In addition, subtle yeasty and slightly chocolatey. The aftertaste is also very sour, malty, here, the hop comes through something better. The further course seems to be always full-bodied. Wonderful toasty aromas come through, combined with chocolate and caramel. The first harsh acidity lies down something.
