TtV (126) - Nijmegen, NETHERLANDS - NOV 16, 2014
Bottle 33cl. Dark brown, almost black with a small off white head that fades almost completely. Little to no carbonation. Aroma almost not existing, just a faint sweetness and malts. Taste is a bit sweet which turns into bitterness all over, bit sour too. Is this spoilt or how it should taste?

Hugi (413) - Waldkirch, GERMANY - SEP 7, 2014
Bottle shared with bartlebier, thanks! Dark brown, little but stable head. The aroma reminds on dark chocolate, coffee, nuts with notes of yeast. Tastes a bit smokey with an intensive dark maltiness and some red fruits and plums. Full body, creamy texture.

Koelschtrinker (11054) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - AUG 20, 2014
Dunkler, wässrig malziger Antrunk. Minimal rauchig, dann röstiger werdend. Wenig süß, etwas bitter. Gelungene Mischung, die aber insgesamt intensiver sein könnte. 8/9/8/8/9/8

Alengrin (2463) - BELGIUM - AUG 11, 2014
Bottom-fermented Dunkelbocks are the norm in Germany, but exceptional in the Dutch bock tradition, which is mostly top-fermented. Thin, bit milky, off-white head, colour a bright bronze, like a German dark bock. Malty aroma with coffee beans, bitter chocolate, liquorice, peat, dates, pepper; dry caramel taste, spicy, dried fruits, nutty maltiness in the middle, finish with roasted bitterness - which frankly I find a bit out of place in this genre. Nevertheless an interesting and tasty beer.

Sjohnh (250) - Coventry, West Midlands, ENGLAND - JUL 18, 2014
This is pretty tasty, with malt, dark fruits, caramel, nuts and molasses, all in good balance. Similar aroma. Clear brown with not a great deal of lasting head. Not spectacular, but beats most UK lagers comfortably.

weark (342) - Morges, SWITZERLAND - JUN 21, 2014
Bottle from Erzbierschof - Hazy brown ruby color with a small and fast disappearing offwhite head, no lacing - Aroma of caramel, roasted malt, dried fruits, hints of coffee and biscuit, distinc lager yeast - Flavor is malty, earthy hops, hints of coffee from roasted malt - Medium body, good carbonation, light bitterness, small roasted malt finish - interesting, i’m not familiar with this style so it’s hard to tell
