Bottle at home in London. Many thanks to Tomer for providing. Breakfast beer to kick off my trip to the USA; it’s now 5:16am. Pours a kind of muddled russet with a large, frothing tan head that fades into a short cream. Nose gives off a hefty dose of smoked caramel, toast, ripening fruits. Light sweet flavor with further smoked caramel character, some dry leaves, mellow toasty bread. It’s not as sweet as I had expected, or as sweet as I would have hoped. Light bodied with lively, explosive-in-the-mouth carbonation. Dries out slightly to finish, more leaves, light bitterness, mellow smoked malts, dry caramel. Not an altogether great beer. Quite rough around the edges.

Bottled, thanks DSG! Hazy brownish amber, small head. Mild aroma of smoky sausage. Mid dry, medium body, rounded mouthfeel. Mild, but distinct smoky sausage flavour. Low bitterness. Lovely smoke flavour, softer, richer malt structure would be preferred.

Erzengel (2399) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - MAY 10, 2014
Thanks for DSG for this bottle. BBE 07/14. The nose is extremely mustard-sour. Slightly malty. A bit like glue. the beer starts extremely woody-sour with a very strange sweet aroma. Nearly undrinkable --> I hope that this beer has turned! Otherwise this taste is more than disgusting. Never had such a strange brew. And where is the smoke? The aftertaste is glue, sour wood and sweetish sugary aroma. --> something very strange... :)
