Aromatisches dunkles Hoepfner Malz und eine Gabe feinsten Tettnanger Aromahopfens verleihen diesem Bier seinen einzigartigen Charakter.

Medium light brown head. Clear dark-red/black colour. Veeery sweet honey aroma with a slight roast note. Tastes a bit like smoked beer with a long, oaky finish with roasted coffee notes. A really good one!

bartlebier (1195) - Belchum im Breisgau, GERMANY - FEB 20, 2014
6x33cl bottles BB AUG 2014, Edeka Lukasiewicz, Karlsruhe. Pours a runny red-hued brown with small beige head. Aroma of bayleaf, Ricola and caramel. Wide array of tastes that take a while to come together: caramel, strong Tettnang fresh grass, Ricola herbal caramel, cocoa powder, Vitamalz lurking around the corner. Lingering floral-bitter aftertaste on a largely roast-dry palate. Yeast not doing that much to tie these all together - brewed according to the German bottom-fermenting (near-extinct) porter tradition? Anyway: a rare and not wholly convincing blend of styles, a rare occasion, this SW-German porter. Thanks to Cantabrian for putting this on my local radar, from halfway around the globe!

Erzengel (1939) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - DEC 26, 2013
Im Geruch nach "Bauernhof" oder Kräutermalzbonbon. Der Geschmack ist ähnlich und sehr interessant: Es wirkt sehr dickflüssig; ein sehr malziges Bier mit vielen Anklängen an Kräuter- und Malzbonbons. Lang anhaltender Nachgeschmack mit viel Süße. Sehr spezielles Bier, das durchaus probierenswert ist!

Bottle, 33 cl. Clear deep reddish brown rather than black with a beige head. Aroma is malty and roasted. Taste is medium sweet, hard roasted malt, faibt notes of licorice, leading to a long, bitter finish, tingling the tongue.
