bartlebier (1480) - Belchum im Breisgau, GERMANY - FEB 19, 2014
50cl fliptop, BB (!) 08/04/2014, from Edeka Mohr, Bonn 02/2014. Pours a lovely opaque chocolate brown with beige head, but pretty watery. Some roast and acidity in the nose does not prepare for the full-fledged lambic zest this packs: 2nd Vulkan bottle gone sour, this one even 2 months before BB date. Oddly this enhances the flavour, turning what must have been a rather thin and toffee/roast flavoured Dunkel into an interesting and refreshing effervescent sour porter with a quick and dry cocoa finish, pretty close I had a pour of Girardin lambic in a bland cocoa porter at a festival, down to tye old hop aftertaste. Overall rating reflects beers from this brewery going sour, not how tasty this ¿accident? turned out to be (14)...

Shaney (2428) - Köln / Cologne, GERMANY - OCT 19, 2013
Dunkelbraun, fast schwarz, mit üppigem Schaum. Würziges Malzaroma, leicht toastig. Eher schwacher Körper im Antrunk. Nette Würze im Geschmack (Karamell, Toast), aber auch leichte, penetrante Säuerlichkeit. Der Nachgeschmack ist leicht lakritzig. Startet als Tiger und landet als Bettvorleger...

McWorta (542) - LUXEMBOURG - AUG 11, 2013
Small light tan head. Hazy dark brown in colour. On the nose aromas of light roasted malts, soya and hints of dark bread develop. The taste develops a light fizzyness with light sweet and bitter notes. The body is medium with a thin light slick even watery texture. Beer is balanced with a light rather short finish. Pretty ok.

KeefOz (835) - Tarragindi, AUSTRALIA - APR 11, 2013
330ml swing top bottle from brewery. BB 6/6/2013. Poured a deep brown with red tint. Had a one-finger beige coloured foamy head that diminished fairly quickly but laced well. No obvious carbonation. Aroma subtly of sweet malt and a trace of caramel. Taste initally of sweet caramel followed by dominating roasted grain. Light to medium body. Finish is sweet with roasted grain. Good.

BlackHaddock (3479) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - JUN 13, 2012
Tall flip-top 500ml bottle: best before 7th Sep 2012: the second beer in my mini-German evening on 13th June 2012. Poured into my lovely ’Hopfenperle’ glass tankard from Wolnzacher Brauhaus: Great looking beer, rich brown body with a cream head. It gives off a rich malty smell. The taste is toffee and caramel without too much sweetness and tangy almost bittering feel in the mouthfeel make this an interesting and most enjoyable beer. Fairly spritzy, well carbonated and lively, I really liked this beer.

kiwianer (3317) - Otorohanga, NEW ZEALAND - MAY 29, 2012
Die Schaumkrone schäumt gut auf aber hält nicht gut, trüb orange-braun. Mein Dunkles hat 5,1%. Es schmeckt mild, ganz leicht röstig, eher hopfig. Fazit: Schmeckt mir nicht so gut! Test vom 25.5.2010, Gebinde: Glasflasche Noten: 8,7,7,7,10,7 - 7,25
