Luk_ (191) - Quebec, CANADA - OCT 16, 2014
Brown gold with white head and nice lacing. Aroma is hoppy, caramel and herbs. Taste is earthy and bitter with some caramel sweetness. Good, but I expected more from this reputable brauhaus.

Erzengel (2708) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - OCT 16, 2014
Malzig-würzig, frisch. Sehr herb, dabei malzig-süßlich mit leichten Karamellnoten. Der Nachgeschmack ist deutlich herb, leicht trocken-würzig, toll ausgewogen. Lecker!

Swaroga (1389) - Brussels, BELGIUM - OCT 5, 2014
Butelka 50cl. OCZY : piwo ma kolor ciepłego brązu z miedzianymi prześwitami. Piana jest spora o kolorze szarym. NOS : piwo ma zapach przypominający miód, wołowy gulasz na piwie (stoofvlees), lubczyk, gwoździe, przypalona skórka od chleba. USTA : umiarkowanie gazowane o konsystencji tłustej herbaty. Piwo jest wytrawne o nutach cierpkich podobnych do skórki pełnoziarnistego chleba. Mam wrażenie, że jem pumpernikiel i popijam go czarną herbatą do tego goździki i szałwią (w umiarkowany, przyjemny sposób). Wszystko współgra fajnie a po kilku łykach cierpkość coraz bardziej zalega i przypomina szałwię. ODCZUCIA : mniej wyrafinowane piwo niż Füchschen Alt ale pije je z przyjemnością. Trochę jednowymiarowe. OCENA : smak : 5/10 pijalność : 8/10 styl : 0

Moravius (529) - Berlin, GERMANY - SEP 23, 2014
Flasche von Hopfen & Malz, Berlin-Wedding. - Mattes Rotbraun, trüb; sahniger Schaum. - In der Nase schwache Frucht (ist das Erdbeere?), leichtes Röstmalz und herber Hopfen. - Anfangs schlank karamelmalzig mit Röstnoten, gefolgt von einer zarten fruchtig-säuerlichen Note, die sogleich in eine wuchtige, lang anhaltende Bittere von Röstmalz und Hopfen übergeht. Mild rezent, schlank. Im trockenen Abgang regiert wuchtige, erdige Hopfenbittere. Sehr langer, kräftig bitterer Nachtrunk mit Anklängen von Zitronenschale. - Wird gelegentlich als das bitterste deutsche Bier bezeichnet, aber das dürfte angesichts der vielen IPAs von sog. „Craft“-Brauereien überholt sein. Nicht überholt, vielleicht sogar uneinholbar ist die starke Kombination von Karamel- und Röstmalz, staubtrockener Herbe und der großzügigen Dosis Aromahopfen, die dieses Bier zu einem Klassiker macht. Einzigartig!

KPD (42) - Michigan, USA - SEP 12, 2014
UPDATED: SEP 13, 2014 Had a bottle at international tap house in the central west end in St Louis. Pours medium brown cloudy. Aroma is malty sweetness. I really am Not getting any other aroma . Medium mouthfeel. Flavor is malty with a reasonably clean finish. Some lingering malt flavor. Good beer.

slowrunner77 (5975) - Reno, Nevada, USA - SEP 12, 2014
"Slightly lighter and slightly sweeter and prunier than the sticker. Almost as good, but leaves juuuust a bit less of an impression as the layers of malt complexity are ever so slightly replaced with more floral (but still light) hoppiness."

kerenmk (2422) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - AUG 23, 2014
Bottle sample. Thanks beerandbeyond! Hazy brown with a small white head. Grainy, malty aroma with a teensy bit of caramel and toast. Tastes mildly bitter and malty. Mild carbonation, medium-bodied, long, toasty finish. Nice.
