MoritzF (9359) - Ottobrunn, GERMANY - JAN 31, 2012
(swing top bottle) Hazy, chestnut-brown colour with a beige and tall foamy head. Sweet toast-malty aroma with notes of caramel/toffee, cacao and a tinge of molasses and anise. Sweet and slightly bitter flavour, light to medium bodied with a calm carbonation. Toasty malt-character with caramel and present herbal accents; moderately sweet and slightly bitter hoppy finish with notes of caramel in the aftertaste. Decent stuff from Franconia. 29.XII.11

Quack-Duck (9118) - Down South, GERMANY - DEC 1, 2011

3fourths (9104) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - NOV 13, 2015
UPDATED: NOV 20, 2015 Draft at the brewery. Clear chestnut brown body with a tan colored head of little retention. Malt is expressed as tootsie roll / caramel chocolate candy with notes of cola and raisin. Strong diacetyl butter taint in the nose with seemingly no hop expression. Light bodied, lightly sweet with low bitterness. It’s under-carbonated but nicely silky / soft in the mouth, but like the nose there’s little authentic malt expression to be found, something like caramel-chews and chocolate cake frosting.

Bottle from Landbierparadies, Nurnberg. Chestnut coloured with a moderate off-white head. Aroma of toffee, nuts and some floral nuts. Chewy dough mouth feel. Flavour of sweet malt with a decent bitter finish. Good.

Erzengel (7548) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - DEC 2, 2013
UPDATED: DEC 30, 2013 Das Bier hat eine tolle orangen-braune Bernsteinfarbe. Selten so ein schönes Bier gesehen! Der Geschmack ist schön röstmalzig-frisch. Im Antrunk ist es etwas laff, im Hauptteil entfaltet sich aber sehr schönes volles röstmalziges und leicht herbes Aroma. Alles wirkt sehr schön ausgeglichen. Der Nachgeschmack ist schön lang und auch schön malzig-herb-trocken.
Test vom 24.1.2008, Gebinde: Glasflasche Noten: 14,14,12,13,12,13 - 13,05

Ernest (7283) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - MAY 10, 2013
Bottle. Head is initially large, frothy/creamy, off-white to light brown, mostly lasting. Body is clear medium brown. Aroma is moderately malty (caramel, toasted bread, roasted nuts, milk chocolate), lightly to moderately hoppy (flowers, herbs), with notes of toffee, scorched honey, orange peel. Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, moderately bitter. Medium body, velvety texture, lively carbonation. Oh my god, do my eyes and nose deceive me??? Look at that big, lasting head that leaves actual LACING on the glass! Smell the rich, caramelly, nutty, toffee-and-orange peel aroma (I’m reminded of Abbaye des Rocs, believe it or not)! This is a German lager? Get out! It’s admittedly rather candy-ish and a little unusual, but it’s very expressive and delicious. Very curious to try the Helles now.

jonas (6698) - Garching b. München, GERMANY - NOV 5, 2010
Bottle. Red chestnut, lively carbonation, big creamy and lacing golden head. Dark sugary entrance, caramel, peppery spicyness, minerally, very light stickyness. Medium body. Easy to drink despite the roasted characteristica.

caesar (6600) - Bunnik/Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - JUL 18, 2013
Bottled, BB 16 07 13, so 2 days past its date, large sample. Clear copper color, medium off-white head. Aroma of german hops, grassy and spicy, dark caramel, hint of sulphur, slight toast, hint of chocolate. Sweet and bitter taste, loads of caramel and toast, like in a good Dunkel. Quite tasty for a Dunkel actually.

McTapps (6448) - Reutlingen, GERMANY - JUL 15, 2014
Bottle from Landbierparadies. Pours out in a deep dark brown colour with steady low head and medium body. Aroma of malt and dust. Taste of malt, dark grains, bread, barley and caramel. Malty finish. Easy drinkable yet nothing special.
