Dalla botte in birrificio. Rossa con bella schiuma. Leggera affumicatura, carbonazione abbastanza presente, un po di malto tostato e finale amaro

KyotoLefty (7870) - Kyoto, JAPAN - APR 2, 2015
Tap at the brewery. Clear, orange-brown, glowing. Tall, fine head. Nose of caramel, oranges, chocolate. Rich malt flavor, chewy and bready, a bit burnt, with caramel and chocolate. Lovely layered malts. Rich, with a very bitter finish for a dunkel. Quite good, but doesn’t touch the lager.

motelpogo (7238) - Plzen, CZECH REPUBLIC - MAR 10, 2015
on tap at the brewery - stop 4 on an 8 brewery walk. dark brown with a purple tinge and a thin but lasting head; aroma is slightly rusty, hints of hazelnut; light stonefruit flavours, some tinny bitterness; decent but felt like something was missing

pivnizub (9400) - Bochum, Porúří, GERMANY - OCT 12, 2014
Bottle: Deep golden to light amber coloured, mid-sized and a bit lacy White head; mild sweetish aroma of dark malt, caramalt and nuts, hoppy and rural traces underneath; moderate bitter-sweet flavour, pretty soft, light to medium bodied; lingering dryish - but not too dry - bitter-sweet finish with - again - a distinctive nutty touch. Good, good franconian brew...

MoritzF (8726) - looking for a flat around Munich, GERMANY - SEP 30, 2014
(bottle) Clear, chestnut-brown colour with a medium-sized off-white foamy head. Mildly toasted malty aroma with nutty notes, a whiff of barnyard and caramel, backed by mildly herbal and subtle citric hops. Mildly sweet and delicately bitter flavour, light to medium bodied with a smooth and well-matured carbonation. Moderately toasted malty and slightly nutty malty taste with hints of bread crusts, caramel, a whiff of chocolate, as well as herbal hoppy accents in the background, the latter getting stronger towards the lasting, mildly sweet malty and hop bitter finish. Very solid Franconian quality. 16.IX.14

downender (7040) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - AUG 23, 2014
At the brewpub, 12 August 2014. Dark brown with a slight, off-white, head. Some toasted malts, a trace of plain chocolate and tart fruits, with a full-bodied, bitter finish. Sweetness avoided throughout and excellent for it.

TAR (2518) - Lafayette, Colorado, USA - DEC 10, 2013
Multiple liters vom fass at Brauerei Knoblach, Nov. 2013: Clear rusty garnet. Eggshell head fizzles away into a snug collar. Remarkably clean nose of treacle, molasses, fresh baked dark bread, roasted nuts. Woody and herbal hoppiness. Vague whiff of minerals, melanoidins and cocoa. Firm and snug carbonation. Richly toasty, starchy, and laden with chocolate-drizzled toffee notes. Ongoing toasty grip yields an edgy dryness. No esters to compete with the immaculately clean and lean malt frame. Earthy malt intricacies continually unfold, delighting with a roasted nut sharpness and fallen-leaf drying effect atop delectable hay dust textures which allow the minerals to latch onto the tongue. Breadcrusty notes abound as bouncy melanoidins sneak in and dance in unison. Hints of cookie exude as well. Muted coffee and toffee elegantly gel with the resounding earthiness. Forceful surge of nectar-laced bitterness gains more depth and sophistication as candyish notes arise alongside a biting hop-derived woodiness. Chocolate teases the tongue as it gives was to minerals, dry toast and a nearly wince-inducing punch of finishing hop bitterness. A very clean, intensely bitter, yet gloriously dry and malty landbier that’s on par with their equally wonderful (and also quite bitter) lagerbier. The brewer Michael obviously has a deep adoration of hops, though unlike most American brewers, he uses them with precision (a beer CAN be insanely bitter without being one-dimensional). I am happy to have learned that Michael’s teenage son is attending brewing school and always seems to be around the brewery lending a hand. Thanks to Ernest for driving us back and forth to this place, because I just couldn’t get my fill of this and the lagerbier on one visit alone!

Ernest (6746) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - NOV 30, 2013
Draft at Knoblach. Head is initially small, frothy, off-white, mostly lasting. Body is medium to dark brown. Aroma is moderately malty (toasted bread/nuts, caramel, roasted grain), lightly hoppy (herbs). Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, moderately bitter. Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation. Kinda watery, but otherwise quite delightful...rich malt nose and surprising hop bitterness. Very clean and solid.
