Koelschtrinker (17713) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - JUN 12, 2011
Das Bier ist sehr malzbetont, besonders im Abgang kann man die röstmalzigen Aromen gut erschmecken. Dabei ist das Bier unglaublich süffig, obwohl man zum Abgang hin auch alkoholische Noten erahnen kann. Dennoch ein hervorragendes Bier. Test vom 16.6.2006, Gebinde: Glasflasche Noten: 14,13,14,12,13,13 - 13,10
Earlier Rating: 6/12/2011 Total Score: 4
Wässriger (Röst-) Malzantrunk. Dieser Ton festig sich im Mittelteil, die Wässrigkeit nimmt deutlich ab. Das Bier wird langsam würziger und wirkt im Abgang deutlich voluminöser, da die anfängliche Wässrigkeit durch herbe Malztöne ersetzt wurde. Etwas karamellig, zum Ende hin vollmundig. Danke an FaustusI für das Bier. Test vom 23.1.2008, Gebinde: Glasflasche Noten: 12,11,12,13,11,12 - 11,95

bartlebier (3496) - Belchium im Biersgau, GERMANY - JAN 9, 2016
UPDATED: JAN 25, 2016 50cl bb06/2016, REWE Bayreuth as "Festbier". - Fluffy maroni dark pour, velvet beige foam. Ar: Roasted nuts, maroni parfait, milk chocolate mousse, crème caramel, woody and even smoked juniper notes - lovely. Flavour: nut caramel parfait, Christstollen, milk chocolate - then a distinctly woody herbal hop bitterness I have only tasted in Franconian Dunkels, of near Alt character. Wonderful silky-smooth, fluffy mouthfeel for a dark speciality lager, truly impressive, ensuring a downability in a few gulps, which is what makes this beer shine. Big surprise and true brewing art in such a modest bully buddel. - Cf. #spezielles Maischverfahren, #Spezialmalze #wurstpudding. - --------&# "Weihnachtsbier", 5,5 ABV, bb06/2016 (2 different bottles of Festbier and Weihnachtsbier bought separately): still tasty, less impressive: earthy almond, marzipan mixed with slight wiffs of abv, highly drinkable. De-alias might be in order given that you can buy both in different bottles in the same market.

Bottled. Very interesting aroma. A combo you don’t get much: herbal, chocolate, dark slightly smoked malts. Deep brown color, beige head, good lace. Light sweet, light sourish, herbal, light bitter, chocolate. Sparkling yet dryish. Very nice, thank you DerDoppelbock.

hopscotch (10644) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - FEB 13, 2011
Bottle… February in Franconia (2011)… Clear, dark copper lager with a large, creamy, mushroom-colored head. Fantastic retention and lacing. The mashy, grainy aroma offers notes of mocha and nuts alongside strong suggestions of caramel and vanilla. Medium to full-bodied and creamy with soft carbonation. Well-balanced. Grainy, warm mash flavor – light caramel and chocolate malts and toasted barley. Finishes crisp and hearty yet refreshing. Tastes like an obscure region of Germany that I hope-against-hope to visit one day. Thanks go out to erlangernick and Koelschtrinker for making this this month of Franconian lagers possible!

BlackHaddock (6384) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - FEB 11, 2014
500ml Bottle: labelled as Weihnachtsbier. Drank on 22nd Jan 2014 in Weiss-Blau, Charlottenburg Berlin. Pours a deep reddy brown with a beige foaming head. Malty nose and taste, but more complicated than that. The malts seemed full but distant in their character, meaning light but ever present. Spicy notes and semi-sweet caramel hints gave the beer an extra dimension and a Christmassy feel. Medium bodied and very easy to drink, the alcohol level sat nicely within the flavours and suited the beer well: it didn’t need to be a super charged brew with the depth of flavours it carried.

Bottled (from bierzwerg.de). Deep copper colour, small off-white head. Aroma is mild toasted nutty notes along with some slight dark fruits and sweet maltyness. Flavour is fruits, some dark malts, mild ashes and some slight burnt wet wooden notes as well. Very pleasant.

500ml bottle. Mild, but very spicy beer. Good, but a bit too bitter for my taste.

jfb (5567) - Freising, GERMANY - JAN 15, 2009
(bottle) pours a dark ruby-chestnut colour with a fluffy off-white head. aroma of roasted malts, hazelnut, grassy herbal hops and light chocolate. flavour is the same, with more pronounced hazelnut notes and some coffee, much like the lager, but a bit stronger and grainier. medium body and carbonation.
