MichaelAwesome (5014) - Wanne-Eickel, North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - NOV 4, 2014
Nettes Dunkel ohne große Ambitionen. Leicht malzig, dazu angenehm in der Perlung recht einfach zu trinken. Nix Großes, aber solide und süffig.

thebeertourist (5003) - Oslo, NORWAY - NOV 1, 2006
Bottle at the brewery. Clear copper-coloured with a small white head. Neutral malts aroma. sweet malty flavours, balanced by grassy hoppiness. A bit boring, actually.

OleR (4804) - Oslo, NORWAY - JUL 26, 2011
0.5L bottle @Plan B, shared with larsga, Rune and GrOve. A lightly tanned head over a clear copper colored body. Slight metallic, dusty/papery hops and dry caramelly dark malts in the aroma. Medium sweet and medium full malt body. Caramel tones, and some fine earthy and grassy hops. Dry, bitterish ending. A decent Dunkel.

Erzengel (4745) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - DEC 30, 2013
Frag’ mich, was das für ein Typ Bier ist. Schmeckt im Großen und Ganzen nach ’nem Dunkel - aber ist mit 6% schon recht stark..... Im Antrunk ist es etwas säuerlich. Im Hauptteil folgt eine muffig-komische Note, Süffigkeit ist für mich nicht zu erkennen. Im Nachgeschmack ist es erdig-trocken. --> überhaupt nicht mein Fall! Auch schmeckt man, dass es etwas mehr %e hat als ein normales Dunkel! PS: Hab’ aus Verzweifelung dazu ein Hanuta gegessen (was ich sonst bei Bier überhaupt nicht mag) --> passt super gut dazu!!

Looks like dirty water when it pours. This is just an amber ale really, but darker in color. some malts, a little metal, a bit different from the other standard German spices. Okay.

Aroma of caramel malt, a bit roasted and some hops. Clear, amber coloured with an off-white short head. Taste is sweet, slightly bitter, caramel malty, a bit hoppy, some fruity tones. Not great.

BlackHaddock (4435) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - MAY 2, 2012
UPDATED: NOV 15, 2012 There is a bottle version up-date at the end of this rating: Drank this in the rear courtyard of the brewery, with a mushroom sauce covered lump of Pork, spuds and a side salad. End of September 2006. Good foaming head in a tall, thick, handled glass with the Fassla logo and Elf on it. The beer a light copper/amber colour, nowhere near some dunkels darkness often seen. No real overpowering aroma, hops and a fruity pong maybe. Tange to the taste, almost sharp and bitter, I liked it. Mouthfeel, good, not to heavy, but you could tell a beer was in your mouth, not some Euro Fizz. Very drinkable, glad I returned, after staying at the brewery some years back. Half-litre bottle: best before 23 Oct 2012, poured on 15 Nov 2012 @ home into a Wolnzacher Brauhaus tall handled tumbler type tankard (so slightly out of date). Darker than I remember the draught version: this was a deep Mahogany browny red colour with a full cream coloured head. Looked good it the glass I’d choosen. The nose was fruity, slightly hoppy and grainy with hints of malty molasses. Taste wise it favoured malts, with fruity notes to the fore, bittering towards the end of each sip. You don’t see beers from this brewery very often in the UK, so when I saw this I had to buy it and re-live the last visit I had to Bamberg, some 6 years ago.
