Erzengel (3553) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - JAN 2, 2014
Süßlich-malziger Geruch. Das Bier ist relativ CO²-arm. Im ersten Moment wässrig entfaltet das Bier zum Hauptteil hin schnell sein malzig-röstmalziges Aroma. Erst wird es malzig-süßlich, schon fast zu süß, aber im Nachgeschmack kommt eine röstmalzig-trockene Note hinzu, die die Süße wieder etwas abmildert. Auf der Zunge bleibt ein trocken-röstmalzige Note zurück, die auch noch ein paar süßliche Einschläge hat.
--> Ein nettes, bayrisches Dunkel, für meinen Geschmack aber einen Tick zu süß.
Test vom 23.9.2008, Gebinde: Glasflasche Noten: 12,11,11,11,12,12 - 11,55

rauchbierlover (617) - Berlin, Berlin, GERMANY - MAR 24, 2013
500cl bottle. Brown body with a frothy beige head. Malty, caramel, all you desire in a dunkel can be found here. Too watery for my taste, otherwise it’s an average beer in its style

yngwie (14146) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - NOV 10, 2012
Bottle. It’s a clear, amber to light brown beer, topped by a small, dense, light beige head. The aroma is malty and bready, quite uninspiring, with some notes of dried fruits. The flavor is bready and malty, lightly toasted and with some yeast and dried fruits. Medium body, soft carbonation. Not much bitterness at any stage. A decent beer, sort of, but far from worth revisiting. 121110
