Beershine (5201) - The Sunshine State, Florida, USA - AUG 3, 2009
Draft @ brewpub, in glass mug. Warm reddish brown with thick stable rocky head and splotchy lacing. Aroma of sweet bready malts and nice speculaas aromas. The flavors have nice spice in addition to the bread malts, adding to the speculaas character. Good quaffability and nice mineral character on the palate.

EithCubes (4701) - New Jersey, USA - AUG 23, 2012
Bottle by 26.10.12. Nose dark toffee and earth, caramel, light hops. Deep amber-brown, dark with a short sudsy beige head. Not really all that sweet or bitter (do we call that balance?), hint of sourness that seems like it might be the winner. A little more fruit in the mouth than nose. Heavy medium-full body, too heavy, and sharp with a crisp fizz. Faint nuts and hops.

kappldav123 (4700) - 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.

kiwianer (3317) - Otorohanga, NEW ZEALAND - JUN 6, 2012
The head is medium, the body brown. It smells like hops, musty-wooden and strange. The taste is sweet, hoppy, earthy-wooden. Medium and strange 9/7/8/7/8/7

TAR (2435) - Lafayette, Colorado, 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.

Erzengel (2327) - 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 :-)
Test vom 27.11.2007, Gebinde: Glasflasche Noten: 12,11,10,11,12,10 - 10,60
