Ein Bier, welches handwerklich - traditionell eingebraut wurde. Würzig, bodenständig, edel gehopft, so wie ein gutes Dunkel sein soll. Erfreuen Sie Sich beim Genuß unseres ALT SUMBARCHER DUNKEL auch an dem Motiv der "Thüringer Kirmes" aus dem Deutschen Spielzeugmuseum Sonneberg.

Tap in Strassenbahn. Dark brown-red body with a lacing rocky white head. Nose is sweet roast and red berry. Taste is drier with surprisingly medium bitterness. No mocha or choco or earth, but it’s padded-walls smooth and medium body. Drier and with some bitterness, kuphish says it’s like Newcastle with balance, and I tend to agree.

On draft at Straßenbahn. Clear, brown body with a rocky, off-white head. Lasting and lacy. Malt comes through big in the nose - big black sun tea presence. Some faint raisin notes. Bigger raisin in the flavor, actually all I can taste, but not in a bad way. Light-medium body. Malt forward with light, but balancing bittering hops. Avoids being cloying. Raisin lingers a bit with exhalation. Really quite like this beer!

bierkoning (12589) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - OCT 27, 2011
Swing top bottle. Dark brown color. Bready caramelly aroma with a hint of cinnamon. Malty sweetish bready caramelly dusty flavor with pear drups. Slightly disappointing.

Koelschtrinker (17738) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - JUN 17, 2011
Sehr schönes breites Etikett mit der Thüringer Kirmes. Auch das Aussehen ist spitzenmäßig, eine dichte hohe Krone schwebt über dem rot-braunen Bier. Stark röstmalzerner Geruch. Süß ist das Bier, das meine ich aber im positiven Sinne und nicht wie bei Biermischgetränken. Deutliche röstmalzerne Aromen sind im Antrunk als Unterton, ab dem Mittelteil als Hauptton vorhanden. Wirklich sehr vollmundig und sehr würzig. Ein Bier zum genießen von vorne bis hinten, mehr davon! Test vom 18.10.2006, Gebinde: Glasflasche Noten: 14,14,14,13,14,14 - 13,85

Miksu (5046) - Jyväskylä, FINLAND - NOV 9, 2010
0.5 l bottle, thanks Timo A! Reddish brown color. Bready, toffeish and nutty with dark bread some raisins and prunes. Nice dark bread crust and raisin flavor.

downender (7960) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - OCT 5, 2009
500ml bottle. Chestnut coloured with a tight, off-white head. Sweet caramel and fruit aroma. Light mouth feel, with sweet malts, red currants, a touch of chocolate and warming alcohol finish. Ok.

Adenila (1560) - DENMARK - OCT 10, 2008
Dark brown with a light brown head. Sweetmalty aroma with some toasted and roasty notes, cooked vegetables and syrup. Abit too harsh bitterness in the flavor while the sweetness works. Its even abit creamy.

Bottle looks good, the beer in the glass also. Tastes mild-malty. Maltiness becomes stronger, smoky finish. Aftertaste like velvet. Good beer!
