pivnizub (8870) - Bochum, Porúří, GERMANY - JUN 7, 2006
On tap at the Brewery: Dark coloured; thick sweet-malty nose, shy bitterness too; small, stable head; robust bitter-sweet flavour, soft MF; lingering, bitter-aromatic finish. An excellent, spicy brew....................

duff (5484) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - FEB 11, 2006
Tap@Battersea Beer Festival. Very easy going, and it almost slips down your throat without you noticing. Some bready/grainy malt flavours, with touches of caramel. Very innofensive, and very neutral, but not in a thin boring sort of way.

harrisoni (13737) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - FEB 11, 2006
On tap at Battersea Beer Festival 2006. Deep chestnut with lasting creamy head. Some sweetish malt on aroma, nice enough in mouth some cream, some smoke, a little burnt malt, drinkable inoffensive. Hoppy finish, not as much flavour as you might expect. Just enough on the finish to keep you interested. Slightly chewy finish. I think Duff and I decided that we could end up drinking quite a bit of this.

chriso (7365) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 5, 2005
UPDATED: FEB 21, 2006 On gravity dispense at London Drinker Beer Festival, March 2005. It was being sold as simply Vierzehnheiligen Dark Lager but I guess its this beer. Mid brown colour. Butterscotch is quite noticeable in the aroma. There’s something a bit sweaty going on too. Butterscotch carries through onto the palate too. There’s toffee as well. OK, but I found it a bit on the flabby side. Not much hop presence. (5/3/6/3/11). RE-RATE: On tap at Battersea Beer Festival. I can never remember which of these german beers I’ve had before. In this case, duplication wasn’t a big problem because the beer definitely presented better than before. Attractive dark oak colour. Slightly bready with a decent dry, woody finish.

DanielBrown (3819) - Birmingham (via Leicester), West Midlands, ENGLAND - MAY 9, 2005
Gravity at the Swan and Rushes annual German Beer Fest, Leicester. A bit of sweet choc and a smooth, clean Lager feel. Easy drinking and a nice enough flavour. Not too complex, or deep in flavour, but pleasant.

Dark chestnut, low creamy head. Strange sweet perfumed toffee aroma. Very sweet caramel base, oak, carbonized/smoked notes underneath. Medium body, mellow mouthfeel, oak and caramel aftertaste. Unusual.

rauchbier (3610) - Isle Of Beer, Lincolnshire, ENGLAND - SEP 24, 2004
Bottle, from Vroni’s in Bamberg. Pale chestnut, good off white head and moderate condition. Initial caramel aroma leading into some rosted notes and a touch of hops. Sweetly malty with a biscuity edge and more roasted barley but with a chemical note coming through with time. Dominant caramel and delicate hops in the finish.

Hildigöltur (5103) - København, DENMARK - JUN 10, 2004
[Draught] The beer was called Vierzehnheiligen Dunkel. I think it is this one. Mature, slightly old aroma. The flavour is sweet, malty and fruity.
