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.

Palme (3455) - Bergen, NORWAY - MAY 8, 2014
On tap @ Fermentoren. This is a clear deep dark red one with a small but lacing grey beige top. Mild nose with hints of burned- and soft malts. It’s hard to get anything else really. Tastes alright. A bit caramel, burned caramel sweet. Light oily in the mouth and the bubbles are about average. Perhaps a bit above. Mild minerally dry with a lurking sourness creeping up towards the finish. Not horrible, and a bit untypical for the genre, but fairly drinkable non the less. 09.01.2014

Ein bisschen Rauch macht schnell vieles an Bier kaputt. Etwas malzig, etwas süffig, aber rauchig. Und das geht gar nicht.

McTapps (4332) - Ruhrcity, North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - JAN 24, 2014
Pours out of the bottle in a deep black colour with low head and medium body. Aroma of chimney and malt. Taste of malt, chimney, woods, leaves, smoke and caramel. Too smokey for me.

Erzengel (2754) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - DEC 31, 2013
Im Antrunk sehr röstmalzig-herb. Im Abgang bleibt eine herb-malzige Note zurück. Aber irgendwie ist der ganze Geschmack doch etwas unrund...kann das aber schlecht beschreiben..... Im Mittelteil auch noch etwas säuerlich.....
