mutz (692) - NETHERLANDS - SEP 2, 2013
Flesje uit de coop in Luzern. Bijna zwarte kleur en een redelijke kraag. Ruikt goed, aangebrand, stroop, zoetig, cacaomelk. Smaakt redelijk vol, weinig koolzuur , donkergebrande mout, cacao , koffie. Dit smaakt niet als een Schwarzbier maar als een porter. Goed spul.

Erzengel (5062) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - OCT 26, 2014
Der Antrunk ist vollmundig, herb, trocken. Zum Hauptteil machen sich angenehm verbrannt Röstmalzaromen im Mund breit, sehr angenehme leichte malzigige Süße. Der Nachgeschmack ist lang anhaltend, angenehm malzig-herb-röstmalzig mit einer sehr schönen Milde.
→ Ein sehr leckeres Schwarzbier, allerdings im Nachgeschmack vielleicht einen kleinen Tick zu süßlich. 12/12/11/12
