MesandSim (7118) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 22, 2008
A Mes rate: Gravity serving at Zeitgeist.
Mid brown with a slight beige head. Sweet German malt aroma with a lot of caramel and toffee. Slight tobacco and wheat with a tiny lick of hops. Flavour is very wheaty with some tobacco again. Slight roasty notes, lovely malt and an excellent balancing bitterness in the finish. Smooth and drinkable.

larsga (6930) - Oslo, NORWAY - SEP 11, 2005
Medium offwhite head of large bubbles, clear dark red body. Smoky, meaty aroma, not too strong. Taste is deep, but not really strong. I’d be hard-pressed to describe it, but the aftertaste is quite bitter. Overall quite hoppy. A very good example of the Franconian dark lager. (0.5l mug on tap at the brewery outdoor serving.)

21/VII/13 - 50cl bottle from the brewery @ home - 6/IX/13 (2013-657) Thanks to Dominiek for the bottle!

Clear deep brown beer, irregular creamy light beige head, pretty stable, non adhesive. aroma: coffee, some dark caramel, toast, bit of chocolate. Mf: soft carbon, medium body. Taste: grains, hay, toast, mocha, little bitter, hoppy, some caramel. Aftertaste: fudge, caramel, mocha, bit hoppy, chocolate, grains and hay. Very German signature, but pretty complex and interesting.

Ernest (6906) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - DEC 7, 2013
Draft at the brewpub in Heckenhof. Head is initially average sized, frothy, light brown, mostly lasting. Body is medium to dark brown. Aroma is lightly malty (caramel, roasted grain, malt syrup), with a strong note of yogurt/sour cream. Flavor is lightly to moderately sweet, moderately acidic. Finish is lightly sweet, moderately acidic, lightly bitter. Light to medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation. Such a shame that such an idyllic little country village/setting is home to such a terrible beer. It smells more like yogurt than anything else, and is equally sour. Pretty much impossible to enjoy.

Miksu (5030) - Jyväskylä, FINLAND - JUL 10, 2008
1.0 l bottle. Reddish brown color with small head. Sweetish, nutty, leathery and somewhat dull aroma. Dry nutty flavor with some weird plastic off flavor. This bottle was picked week ago from the brewery but seems to be insipid, I hope to rerate this in future.

OleR (4804) - Oslo, NORWAY - NOV 6, 2010
1L sving-top bottle. Big platina blond head with excellent lacing. Clear mahogny colored body. Dry nutty, faint caramelly malt aroma. Notes of dusty, grassy and papery hops. Much of the same flavorwise; Dry nutty malts and dusty hops. Also an vinous berry-ish fruitiness. Light to medium full. powdery, almost chalky in th mouth. Dry fruity finish. Probably a light oxidation here, still a decent and drinkable dunkel.
