Bottled (backlog). Copper colour with a mediumsized creamy off-white head which leaves some lace. Aroma is sweet caramel malts, some nuts, toffee and mild toasted notes. Flavour is very similar, with some slight chocolaty notes as well. Tasty and refreshing.

In der Nase malzig, im Trunk Karamell, sehr süffig, gute Drinkability. Hintenweg etwas matt, dann aber nochmals kurz süß. Lecker.

kappldav123 (5927) - GERMANY - MAR 5, 2014
Bottle looks very simple, but okay. Beer in the glass brownish, nice small head. Starts mild, fine malty, dry, not too roasty. Mild metallically notes. Finish still mild, dry, a bit boring. Malty notes could be more intense. Okay.

Erzengel (7925) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - JAN 22, 2014
Ein insgesamt doch schönes, wenn auch nicht allzu besonderes Dunkel. Insgesamt gesehen ist es etwas flach - die Aromen halten sich dezent im Hintergrund, aber laff ist es dadurch auch nicht. Der Antrunk ist säuerlich mit deutlich spürbarer Kohlensäure, im Hauptteil kommen die Röstmalzaromen zum Vorschein. Je wärmer das Bier wird, umso besser wird es, da die Aromen erst langsam "auftauen".
Zum Röstmalz kommt eine angenehme süße mit leichten Hopfenanklängen, aber kaum herb.Der Nachgeschmack gestaltet sich schön röstmalzig mit leichter süße, langanhaltend.
Fazit: Die Aromen könnten schon etwas eher zu tage treten, und nicht erst wenn das Bier "wärmer" gewortedn und das Glas schon halbleer ist :-)

TAR (2687) - Marshall (Asheville area), North Carolina, USA - DEC 27, 2013
Bottle from Landbierparadies, best by Feb. 23, 2014: Clear russet. Persistent eggshell foam slowly fragments but maintains a creamy fringe. Malt-rich nose of chocolate mouse, browned piecrust, toasted hazelnut, melanoidins, burnt cocoa, toffee, and some fruity esters. Fairly husky (stale coffee grounds/burnt popcorn), though. Firm prickles of carbonation. Firmly malty, initially, and exhibiting a quite lean frame which is accentuated by bright minerals. Stiff woody hop whispers enhance the complex, well-structured malt which reveals springy tobacco, fallen leaves and toasted hazelnut flavors beneath the richer unsweetened chocolate and nutty coffee flavors. Abundant licorice notes deflect the residual sugars and contribute more earthiness to the rustic malt dimensions. Huskiness becomes distracting after a few gulps, with burnt popcorn and spent coffee grounds sneaking in and hindering the sturdier, riper grains. Bitter breadcrust and substantial earthiness comprise the finish, as a dusting of cocoa dryness displaces much of the huskiness. Chocolate and coffee are two characters you just don’t commonly find in Franconian lager, even in the vast majority of dunkels, but this has an abundance of each. It’s just unfortunate about the huskiness because this is certainly one of the more complex and idiosyncratically malty landbiers I’ve come across. That said, it’s extremely easy to slug the half-liter bottle in no time.

harrisoni (17352) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - SEP 12, 2013
On tap at the brewery. Clear reddish brown colour. Brown dry malt aroma. It’s good. Like the Pils it’s well brewed. Tasty enough. Yep decent.
