COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Das dunkle Glückauf Bock wird nach einem geheimen Rezept gebraut. Es ist männlich stark, charaktervoll durch seine sympatische Röst-Note eines dunklen Malzes, es läuft flüssig-süffig über die Zunge. Eine wahre Spezialität, die von Kennern immer bevorzugt wird, weil es das Besondere ist.

Bottle, given to me by a co-worker who just visited Germany. Pours an attractive, clear dark bronze with an off-white head. Nice toasted grain/caramel/dark fruit aroma with the slightest tinge of herbal hops in the background. Clean flavor - notes of dark caramel, toffee, plum, raisin, cola, light Noble hop character and a very clean yeast with no imperfections. Has a pleasant sweetness level which never gets cloying. Medium bodied with smooth texture and moderate carbonation. Very well-made- great session beer.

Keine große Nummer, aber dabei dennoch recht süffig und gut trinkbar. Nussig, mit etwas Karamell und einer netten Portion Malz im Abgang. Vollkommen ok.

Koelschtrinker (9999) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - MAY 23, 2011
Malzig-würziger, insgesamt tiefgründiger Antrunk, der bereits röstige Noten erahnen lässt. Positiv wirkt sich auch die Süße aus, die das Malz unterstreicht und das Bier insgesamt süffiger macht. Hinter der stärker werdenden Süße ist das Bier wässrig, was so gar nicht zu den Karamellaromen passen will. Im Abgang kann das Malz dann aber wieder überzeugen und schließt die wässrige Lücke, mit röstig-süßen Pflaumennoten endet das Bier. Sehr gut! 11/12/12/12/12/12
