Koelschtrinker (14127) - Köln (Cologne), - NOV 10, 2012
Malzaromatischer Beginn mit Honignuancen. Röstaromen werden von süßlichen Noten überlagert, leicht hefig. Die Malzigkeit wird dann intensiver, sowohl der röstige als auch der süße Anteil. Aromatisch, steigende Hintergrundbitterkeit. Gelungener, vielleicht auf Dauer zu süßer Bock. 9/10/11/11/13/12

Lahev: Ruby-amber coloured, clear, smaller - but stable off-white head; sweet toasty nose, including dried fruits and chocolate; moderate sweet flavour, mildly balanced by a delicate bitterness, medium bodied, quite soft; slightly increasing bitterness in the all in all sweet nutty and caramelly finish. Good franconian quality…

MoritzF (8926) - Ottobrunn, GERMANY - JUL 30, 2015
(bottle) Clear, mahogany colour with a beige medium-sized foamy head. Moderately roasty malty aroma with notes of bread crusts, a heavy load of caramel and a delicately touch of hoppy spice in the background. Moderately sweet, as well as mildly hoppy and roasty bitter flavour, medium to full bodied with a well-carbonated mouthfeel. Roasty malt-character in combination with caramel, crusty bready notes and a tinge of chocolate; moderately sweet malt-accented finish with a balancing level of hoppy and roasty bitterness. Fairly good and quite Franconian. 03.III.15

presario (4901) - Stampede City, Alberta, CANADA - MAR 26, 2015
Pretty dark amber, almost brown out of the sun. Thick head. Interesting aroma is hard to describe but a pleasant blend of alcohol, malt and good stuff. Amazing how dry some of these German dark beers are. It is like a new style when produced this way. Tasty dry and very smooth. Beautiful meld of malt and alcohol. Delicate chocolate liqueur winds its way through.

Tap, Together with Caesar. Aroma is malty, slightly roasted with some hops. Clear, mahony brown coloured with an off-white, thin head. Taste is sweet and bitter and mainly caramel malty, some fruity tones. Nice.

caesar (5971) - Bunnik/Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - JUL 20, 2007
Had this from tap at the same place as Mads Langtved. Clear brown color, short off-white head. Bocky aroma of hop, caramel malt, bit roasted, bit fruity. Bitter and malty taste. Decent balance, but not fantastic.

This is perhaps on of the best beers I've ever tried. Tried it draught on a top of a hill neat the Michaelsberg kloster in Bamberg. Strong caramel notes dominationg this dark, thick beer. It reminds me a little of Belhaven's Wee Heavy even though it is a Scottish ale. The beers have the same complexity between the sweetness and the bitterness. This is how a beer should be. Unfortunately it is very rare, so I wont proberly get the chance of having this fantastic brew again. It is only produced for the church and St. Michaelsberg. I guess I have to live without it and miss it.
