Ein Bier mit besonderem Charakter. Unser Bier des Jahres 2008, das zum Dauerbrenner avanciert ist. Rötlich in der Farbe mit kraftvoller Schaumkrone. Vollmundig im Geschmack, mit malzaromatischer Note und elegant abklingender Bittere.

jonas (6404) - Garching b. München, GERMANY - JUN 22, 2014
Bottle. Dark red, almost brown, creamy lacing white head. Melonoidin malt aroma, light grass. Medium light body, mellow mouthfeel. Light berrylike, malt base, a hint roast, grassy hops, some salt/minerals towards the finish. Berries and caramel in the aftertaste. A bit boring initially, but start unfolding after a few minutes to a quite fresh and quaffable brew.

MichaelAwesome (6146) - Wanne-Eickel, North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - JUN 4, 2014
Wie schon gedacht, sind hier Malz, etwas Karamell und ein wenig an Süße mit von der Partie. Recht süffig, aber auch zum Ende hin so malzig, dass ich abwinke. Bieder und ordentlich.

McTapps (6194) - Ruhrcity, GERMANY - JUN 4, 2014
Bottle from kevnic2008 - many thanks! The beer pours out in a deep dark ruby-brown colour with low head and medium body. Aroma of nuts, caramel and malt. Taste of malt, barley, bread, caramel, torf and dark berries. Easy drinkable with vanilla hints.

Quack-Duck (9060) - Down South, GERMANY - FEB 22, 2014
bottle from a local Rewe. Hazy brown colour, mid-sized off-white head. Caramelly start, slightly sweet with a touch of honey and chocolate, also shy fruity hints. Hoppier in the finish. Smooth and easy-drinking beer.

bartlebier (2966) - Belchium im Biersgau, GERMANY - FEB 5, 2014
33cl fresh fliptop, changing ICEs in Mannheim 02/2014. Pours a watery red-brown with stable head. Aroma of pregnant malts and a whiff of alcohol. Taste is slightly better, adding some dry Vienna malt aromatics and a superficial spicy hop tinge (extract) that does not entirely come together with the malts and pedestrian yeast profile. What use producing a specialty red beer if you are going to resort to extract (and underachieving bottom-fermentors)?

Erzengel (6707) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - DEC 25, 2013
Der Geruch ist süßlich-malzig. Der Antrunk ist laff-würzig und etwas herb-trocken. Im Hauptteil ist eine etwas muffige Süße zu spüren... irgendwie ist das ganz sehr vollmundig, aber irgendwie wieder komisch... Der Nachgeschmack ist säuerlich-süßlich, leicht herb und für mich wieder sehr schwer zu beschreiben.
--> ein süffig-süßliches Bier, durch die Hefe sehr mild, aber irgendwie nicht so meins!

0.33 l bottle from Eichbaum Brauhaus, Mannheim... Interesting red-brown color, little bit like cola-mix. Average head... Alcoholy malt aroma of coffee and some intensive fruits... Mild sweet dark beer taste... Average ending... Interesting dark beer version...
