pivnizub (10139) - Bochum, Porúří, GERMANY - SEP 8, 2005
Swing-top bottle: Fluffy brownish head, dark amber to reddish coloured; milk-chocolate in the aroma with a tinge of fruitiness and traces of roasted malts; light, sweetish (roasted) malty taste, medium bodied, quite soft; slightly bitter-malty finish with traces of roasted malts again. O.K., but a bit too sweet and plain........

JorisPPattyn (9471) - Ursel, BELGIUM - NOV 6, 2005
UPDATED: NOV 11, 2005 Greige, creamy head over well carbonated black beer, foxy shine. Blackcurrant, black chocolate, brown sugar on bread, all fading aroma’s. Dark malts, melanoidine-rich. Lots of restsweetness but balanced by dry-bitterish flavours: woody, slightly hoppy, tannine-like. Whiffs of coffee and cigarette ashes. Dry and sweet at the same time, light to medium body. Very good balance for this Dunkel. Plain but forthright, "quaffable". Kudo’s to these people.

MoritzF (9423) - Ottobrunn, GERMANY - MAR 26, 2006
(swing top bottle) Hazy dark brown colour with a ruby shine and a big tanned foamy head with slow lace. Dark malty toasty aroma with caramel and chocolate. Toasted malty taste with caramel, medium body, smooth carbonation and mouthfeel; dry and moderately bitter toasty and light hoppy finish with liquorice and milk coffee. Good Dunkel.

Erzengel (7757) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - NOV 17, 2014
* Old rating, 0,5l, best before 10.02.06. Mild-malziger Antrunk. Nicht zu tief. Trocken-malzige Töne im Hauptteil, frisch, süffig, aber im Nachgeschmack nur leicht röstmalzig, dafür malzig-trocken mit angenehmer Herbe.
