downender (6200) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - JUL 29, 2007
Bottle from Landbierparadies, Nurnberg. Amber coloured with a moderate white head and lacing. Aroma of caramel and honey. Flavour was also sweet, although with a nutty edge and a decent bitter finish. Enjoyable.

Damn these people for having such a complicated name for an Englishman to write down when he’s drunk. I take it all back for the beer though, thank you very much. Good work my German brethren. Brown with a thin beige head. Malty, hints of caramel with a nice amount of sweetness. Hmm.

MiP (13573) - Sřnderborg, DENMARK - JUL 16, 2009
Bottle, 5.1%. Mild roasted aroma. Clear dark brown colour. Very small light brown head. The flavour is nicely malty, slightly roasted. Good creamy flavour and mouthfeel. Well-balanced.

Pigs Ear. Clear dark brown beer. Small tan head. Typically smooth and fresh German beer. Minerally mild dark malt, smooth and slightly creamy. Smooth finish. Nice.

EithCubes (4818) - New Jersey, USA - OCT 9, 2011
Bottle by 18.01.12. Nose is sweet with caramel and meat must. Ruby pour with a lacing and rocky tan head. Tastes sweet with earth and caramel, there’s some dark almost-coffee and churlish roast, toasted grains and a touch of that musty spagh funk. Medium body with persistent gentle prickling carb. A lot of nice Maillard complexity here, a superb Dunkel crossed with some interesting cellar qualities.

adnielsen (8970) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - JUL 26, 2012
Bottle @ Uncle Chris’ house in Fürth. Hazy dark brown appearance with a light brown head. A touch burnt, toasty malty, light caramel, nutty, herbal aroma. Well carbonated. Somewhat nutty, toffee, toasty malty, floral hoppy flavor. Not bad.

KyotoLefty (6299) - Kyoto, JAPAN - AUG 17, 2013
Gravity at GBBF. Amber-orange color with a thick, fine head. Rich chocolate malt flavor, caramel. Richly layered malt flavors, bready chocolate. Nicely done.

DanielBrown (3777) - 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.

chriso (7347) - 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.

omhper (19309) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - SEP 10, 2008
Bottled. Mahogany colour, firm head. Molasses and hazelnuts up front. Medium sweet and mediu bodied with rounded mouthfeel. The concentrated roasty flavour with licorice and chocolate makes it almost porterlike.
