330. Thanks, A! Pours jet black with a loose and sudsy grayish head. Very sweet nose, a little milky, lots of milk chocolate. Thick and sticky mid palate with moderate carb. Very sweet mid palate, especially for a dry stout, lots of unfermented sugars, chocolatey, a little bit of sweet fruitiness like snack cherries. Long sticky sweet finish.

Erzengel (6242) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - MAY 16, 2015
33cl bottle, many thanks to DSG. Smooth fresh nose of roasted barley. Hints of woody sourness. Nice sourish beginning, rich and round with dry smooth roasted barley. Very dry, nice sourness in the body. Fresh, smooth, malty smooth, easy to drink but still thick. Great malty-dry sourish aftertaste with a bit of bitterness. Great.

330 ml. bottle sampled. Obtained in the big Israeli trade. Shared with multiple people @ Delirium Hoppy Loft. Black, little mocha bubbles. Nose is sweetish coffee, light grains, touch soy sauce. Taste is bitter vegetable roast, herbal coffee, bitter grounds, light liquorish. Grainy roast body. Touch metallic. Pretty decent & quaffable beer.
