Bottled 500ml. -from random store in Bamberg. Dark amber coloured, medium sized off-white head, honeyish caramel nose. Moderate malty, caramel and light dried fruits with bready and mild nutty notes in the finish. Better than Thurn und Taxis St. Wolfgang Dunkel we tried earlier.

EithCubes (5088) - New Jersey, USA - OCT 9, 2011
I’m a big fan of Hoffmann and am hoping this bottle (by 09.02.12) is extra special. Nose of caramel and roasted malt, nutty with lush dark undercurrents and even some hops. Pours a gorgeous, only slightly see-through chestnut with a sudsy tan head. Taste is sweet. Prickly soft carbonation, faint acidity, light, thinnish body but with a warm nutty malt finish and aftertaste, no astringency in the subtle and balancing bitterness. Clean and fresh, caramel is under control and married to slight earthy and herbal tones. Not exceptional, but well made and enjoyed. Sköne Oke! Sköne Oke!

Another one courtesy of ogivlado (thanks!). Poured a slightly pale brown, bronzey colour. Honeyish soft malty nose. Honeyish light slightly sweet taste, quite nice, light tart fruity hopiness (green fruit), sligthly herbal, but no bitterness. Some unfortunate fishy notes show up too. Interesting, not great but ok.

jaghana (4138) - Strasbourg (Alsace), FRANCE - JUN 17, 2011
Bottle 50cl from Bierzweig.com. A clear red-brown beer with medium head and good lacing. Nose is bread and grapes like. Aroma is dry on toasted and dark chocolate malt, body is a bit watery but whole aroma is nice with prune and dry grapes notes. Superb aftertaste on dry grapes and bitter dark chocolate, caramel and hops bitterness, nice dunkel; finish is very dry and bitter.

Koelschtrinker (11042) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - MAY 17, 2011
Im malzigen Antrunk sind wässrige Nuancen erkennbar, die erst später mit Karamellnoten gefüllt werden. Dazu leicht herb, frisch, ausgewogen. Im Mittelteil würziger, das Karamellaroma breitet sich auf geringem Niveau aus. Zum Ende leicht schokoladig. Nett. 7/10/11/11/12/11
