Bottled. Copper colored with rich off-white head. Boatloads of almonds in aroma. Oily, slick mouthfeel with almonds in maltiness leaning towards glue in flavour. Not much room here for maltiness. No delicate features at all, just plain glue and almond. Fairly sweet with all other features (mouthfeel, body etc) pretty okay. As for maltiness, there is a hint of it. Pretty solid beer but too one-dimensional.

Erzengel (2607) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - JUN 10, 2014
Malzig-dickflüssig. The mainpart is very deep. Plums, raisins. Not too sweet, but very viscous. Intense dark, not much bitterness there. On the tongue remains an intense malty aroma with lots of dried plums and dark cherries.
Absolutely great brew! 14/13/14/14

stravale (2099) - Near Carrick-on-Shannon, IRELAND - JUN 5, 2014
Bottle from SuperValu, Longford [060614]
Caramel reddish brown, clear, frothy beige head, little lacing
Aroma sweet caramel, malty, soft raisin fruits, little alcohol
Taste - sweet caramel malts, soft raisin fruits, little hops, too boozy, under flavoured for the abv, rather dull
Palate - soft carb. medium body, smooth, sweet palate, bitter alcohol. Finish as main flavour, boozy finish
Overall - Flavour too simple for abv, needs more flavour to contract the alcohol
