Keg at the brewpub in Dublin. Red/amber with a very thin head. Nose is mild roastiness with some liquorice. Taste is very light spiciness, some mild coffee, plenty of sweet maltiness. Mouthfeel is quite full, with decent carbonation. Good stuff.

Erzengel (3553) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - APR 25, 2014
on tap. Smooth in the beginning. The beer starts malty with earthy hints, that gets more intense to the mainpart. Floral-smooth, caramel. The aftertaste is smooth, floral, sweetish-bitter. Nice for a Red Ale. 10/12/11/10
