A very dark beer, as unique as the tradition that created it. Choice aromatic hops, black malt and crystal-clear mountain spring water give this dark beer its distinctive, nutty flavour. The time-tested historic recipe, the classic brewing method and the secret of just enough extra hops make Hartmann’s Erbschänk 1550 a satisfying full-bodied beer.

.5l bottle in Stuttgart. Pours brown with light head. Not as dark as the Dunkels. Nutty aroma, smooth first taist with spices. 4-5 swallow reveals the hops which is quite strong and not expected from a German Brown. Very good brew. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Tap@Akkurat. Svart vätska med kaffebrunt skum. Dofter av blöt säd och lite bröd. Bra balans i beskan. Extra plus i kanten för att den saknar bränt kaffe-inslag.

kappldav123 (5917) - GERMANY - NOV 11, 2014
Bottle looks very simple. Beer in the glass zippy, nice head. Starts intense malty, modest roasty, some dry notes, a bit earthy. Finish milder, less roasty, quite drinkable. Not bad!
