stevoj (1702) - Boise, Idaho, USA - JAN 24, 2013
Dark and strong, nice rich roast grain flavor. Dark brown in color with fast disappearing head. Good all-around, but lacking that something extra to put it over the top.

355 ml can. Pours clear dark brown with a high brownish head. Roasty caramel aroma and taste. Rather bitter palate.

Huge brownish head. Clear light-brown colour. Sweet, roasty honey aroma. Very bitter taste and palate. Reminds me of the notorious Elephant Beer. Okay.

Ins Glas ergießt sich ein rötlichbraunes Bier mit schöner Schaumkrone. Geruch leicht röstmalzig, Karamell, etwas würzig. Geschmack röstmalzig, schokoladig, leicht würzig.

teddybeer (2097) - Madrid, SPAIN - JAN 3, 2014
[Thanks to kevnic2008]. Bottle. Brown colour with an off-white head that quickly diminishes. Aroma is slightly toasted malts with light caramel. Flavor has notes of light toffee, moderate bittery. Mild bittery in the final with a dry mouthfeel.

I drink it this week end at a party with friend but I don’t like it much. The taste isn’t mine...

dexcansino (391) - Andalucía, SPAIN - DEC 8, 2013
Una cerveza de navidad muy corriente. Parece una duppel bock. Acaramelada, toffe, algo a café tostado y sin presencia alcohólica. Creo que no la repetiré.

Shared a 50cl bottle. Pours a dark amber colour with a thin tan head. Aroma is malty and light spicy. Medium carbonation and medium body. Flavour is quite flat with some alcohol and bitter end. Overall, a nice beer for a cold day waiting for the presents...

Erzengel (1909) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - OCT 28, 2013
Das Bier ist schön dunkelbraun, der Schaum wenig standhaft. Der Geruch ist süßlich-herb-würzig, aber insgesamt ziemlich schwach. Der Antrunk des St. Nikolaus ist vollmundig-scharf-stark. Das Bier ist süßlich-malzig, aber auch im Hauptteil hab’ ich eine alkoholische Schärfe auf der Zunge. Der Nachgeschmack ist malzig-trocken-süßlich, die alkoholische Schärfe hält penetrant an. Sehr süffig für ein Bockbier, aber für meinen Geschmack überdeckt die alkoholische Schärfe die schönen malzigen, vielleicht auch ins röstmalzig gehenden Aromen. Schade! (Test vom 14.7.2008) --> 12,10,11,10,12,10 - 10,45

Bottle. Pours a dark reddish brown with a medium-sized beige head. Aroma is grass, surprisingly light malts, grain, some dark bread. Taste is a lot of dark bread, light caraway, even marzipan. Herbal finish. Good and interesting. Forgot to check if there are spices (probably not considering it is German), but the flavor was really good and the spice notes subtle yet noticeable. Palate is medium, quite carbonated.
