COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Tiefschwarz. Dicht, ölig. Brauner, schöner Schaum. Sehr intensive Nase nach Röstaromen, reifen Waldbeeren - begleitet von einem frischen Hopfenhauch (Saphir- Aromahopfen!). Herrliche Fülle am Gaumen, macht dort ordentlich Druck. Sehr langer Nachtrunk, die vielschichtigen Hopfenöle massieren sich in die Zunge, geben sie nicht so schnell frei. Zartbitter und himmlisch. Erträgst Du die Fülle?

Medium body and moderate, foamy carbonation. Too sweet and lacking in depth.

Fin (9465) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - JUN 28, 2016
Bottle from Rewe supermarket in Bad Kreuznach, Germany, consumed, outside Frank (Camper) at Campingplatz Gülser Moselbogen Nr Koblenz, Germany Tuesday 28th June 2016, Black with a light beige head, really soft and smooth in the mouth, almost creamy also. A little bit boozy but this doesn’t really concern me as it is still really drinkable. A touch of cappuccino calms down the roastiness, v.good. A6 A4 T7 P4 Ov14 3.5

hauxe (377) - Butzbach, GERMANY - MAY 20, 2016
Pours dark from the bottle with a brown head that soon fades. An intensive aroma of roasted malt, red wine, and red currant greets the nose. Unfortunately it also betrays a hint of raw alcohol. The taste has some of the usual roasted notes of a typical stout, but quickly trends sour with a fruity, berry-like tang making itself felt. The finish is dry and bitter; there is a fair dose of hops in this one. Again a faint touch of alcohol is present. This one may have been better with a slightly lower ABV. As it stands the beer is quite good, but not great. The name "Nachtflug" translates to "night flight" and, yes, after too many of these you will embark for the night.

Tap @ Hopfenreich. Pours black with a brown head. Aroma of sweet liquorice, dark sweet malts, some roasted malts, chocolate, sweet tobacco and vanilla. The taste has roasted malts as well, sweet caramel, weak ashy notes, cocoa and biscuit. A bit thin but still an ok beer.
