bartzluke (329) - Oklahoma, USA - JUL 27, 2015
.33l pour from refrigerated bottle into Engelszell Trappist glass. Dark ruby, opaque, very fizzy light brown head, ample evident carbonation. Nose is sweet, malty, caramel, brown sugar, maybe a bit of oatmeal cookies, a little dark fruit. Body is full and velvety with a little bit of a carbonated bite at the end. Taste is sweet and pleasant. A little nutty, some ginger cookie, some brown sugar, light raisin. A little bit of booziness present on the finish. A dessert beer, but not overpoweringly sweet. A good beer.

Bov (10454) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - JUL 28, 2013
courtesy of Toni Flükiger - clear brown beer with no head retention; aroma of green beans and bacon (sounds terrible but is actually pretty nice), undefined spicy tones (maybe nutmeg);pretty assertive and tasty palate; a solid malt backbone and a subtle yet fair carbonation; pretty dry and spicy malty finish with more notes of bacon - deeply original beer again from this brewery

Erzengel (5494) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - OCT 30, 2013
Organic beer - interesting. Dark brown in the glass, malty herbal nose. The beer starts malty, liquorice, thick. The mainpart is a bit roasted, malty. Dark. A bit sweet. The aftertaste is long, slightly bitter, dark malt, caramel, a bit herbs. --> Nice beer! --> 12/10/11/12

Dark reddish brown, minimal head, aroma of molasses and yeast, kind of like a brewery would smell, if that makes sense. Taste of molasses, maybe coffee. Feels a bit thicker in the mouth than what you would expect. Very tasty,

Advent Calendar #19. I really enjoyed this doppelbock/dunklerbock mishmash! Tasted weird at the first sip as I was expecting an ale, but I warmed to it quickly and each one was progressively better. A sweet sticky lager, but when there’s dried fruit it works. Guessing the spice came in with the bitter finish, which seemed to have more oomph than that carried by hops? Though that might be psychosomatic.

ThirstyBird (2184) - Düsseldorf, GERMANY - OCT 30, 2013
Thanks to erzengel for sharing!! Pours a dark cola color with a loose tan head. The smell is malted milk, caramel, mild spice, dark fruit. The taste is in line with the nose ending dry with a bit of alcohol. The body is medium and slice with smooth, tight carbonation. A pleasant and complex brew.

0,33l bottle from Beer Store Vienna. Pours hazy brown with a low head. Aroma is slightly roasted malts with burnt sugar and alcohol. Flavor is slightly roasted malts, herbs, brown sugar, alcohol and some hops. Nice.
