COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Koelschtrinker (16324) - 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 (5039) - 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 (7760) - 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.

kappldav123 (5826) - GERMANY - SEP 27, 2008
Bottle looks good, the beer in the glass also. Tastes mild-malty. Maltiness becomes stronger, smoky finish. Aftertaste like velvet. Good beer!

Archibaldo de la Cruz (1121) - FINLAND - SEP 2, 2008
Bottle. Dark brown colour with a beige head. Sweet malty aroma. Sweet, roasted malty flavour with hints of coffee. Slighly dry and bitter finish. Medium bodied, smooth and easydrinking beer. I enjoyed it. Nothing special, but still a quite nice brew.

kpresley77 (147) - Jackson, Georgia, USA - AUG 21, 2008
Bottle courtesy of fonefan pours clear reddish brown with thin tan head. Aroma is sweet toffee malt and bread. First taste is bread and sweet malt with a sweet finish. This is a really smooth beer with not much carbonation which makes it easy to drink.
