ALLOVATE (2911) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - SEP 28, 2006
The dwarf’s beer!
Tried this from the bottle into a Fässla stein at the Bräuhaus, Bamberg, Germany.
Place was raging whilst I knocked this one back. Germany won in a shoot out at the World Cup, the young were lively, the more mature absolutely raucous and then there was my wife and I, the only visitors from abroad. This place rocked long into the wee hours, no chance of sleep. Absolutely fell in love with Fässla, and this beer is just another notch on the side of grandish.
Bright mahogany body, very scarcely carbonated but managed to raise up a lovely, fluffy, rocky tan head that held on tight and snowed over the entire glass. Very musty, oddly aged malt nose. Strange, reminiscent of a dank cellar and a moist forest floor with touches of ripe, fell fruit that add a spice, and just a little smoke showing late. Enticing, funky!!!
Palate is quite dry, a little vinous and slightly fruity and musty like the aroma. Good depth of malt, light smoke and a little tang of tannins down the back that doesn’t upset the balance. Very well rounded, good solid feel in the mouth, and definitely flavoursome. Medium-light in body, and soft and creamy on the tongue. Swallow holds a light metal tinge, just a touch of bitter, burnt malts and is woody and malty long into the swallow. This is quite a unique tasting Dunkel. Very refreshing and bloody popular with the locals, the young mostly which is good to see. A unique one, balanced and well crafted. Good too the last.... cheers to Fässla!!!!

Had this on a train ride along the rhine, I was in the zone. It was delicious. Nice rich and sweet with plenty of malt and a leveling of hops.

ippopotamo36 (1766) - Rome, ITALY - MAY 30, 2015
Gravity keg at Fassla brewpub in Bamberg-Germany. Pours a filtered amber brown color, wood texture with a frothy ivory cap. Nose: mild caramel, bread crust, creme brule. Mouth: getting spoiled from other Franconian beer I would comment light, a bit too water. Anyway...man, this stays crispy, bready and very malty. It is a great beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

This is a very nice beer. Surprisingly full flavoured for being a bottom fermented brew. It has lots of everything.

harrisoni (17352) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - MAY 24, 2007
500ml bottle from Ealing BF 2007. Russet colour with disappearing off white head. Some smokey toffee aroma, bit of rubber. Smokey rubber mid dark beer. Less smokey than Schlenkerla marzen, but smooth, more toffeeish, better mouthfeel. Smoke on finish is good. Very good smooth, deep marzen.

Moravius (1130) - Berlin, GERMANY - DEC 14, 2013
UPDATED: JAN 14, 2014 Flasche. - Dunkel. In der Nase köstliche dunkle Brotrinde. Im Antrunk Röstmalz, frische Brotrinde, perfekt ausbalanciert durch leichte zarte Säure. Nur mild rezent. Herbfruchtiger, pfeffriger Hopfen. Mittellanger bitterer Nachtrunk. - Enorm süffiges, leichtes Dunkles mit einer Fülle milder Aromen. Nur zum Ende hin etwas dünn, sonst wäre es perfekt.
