On tap at Zwiebel in the quaint town of Soest pouring up in a range of hues from gold at the edges to copper then to an amber core supporting a solid half inch tan head. The modest aroma offers up some caramel malts, caramel candy (just a touch) and faint vague hops. The taste is smooth bringing in caramel malt notes and then a mild level of roasted malts and spicy to floral hoppiness. Into the finish I get a pleasing malt graininess joining in and adding depth and interest to the experience.

Amazing, huge, froth head, with a dark brown, ember color. Aromas of fresh, slightly sour yeast, among bready, sweeter malts. Has a spicy hint to it, with a subtle bitterness, while floral hops add a lovely note to the beer, providing an almost honey-like impression, while blending into the malts. Tastes of an enjoyable, floral bitterness among bready, slightly toasted malts. A sour, dough yeast note, as well as spicy clove become visible, while a fitting, higher carbonation provides a slightly metallic note. Has a great balance, with a complex malt backbone, in which toffee, rustic bread and bitter coffee become visible. Finishes with a crisp hoppy bitterness, accompanied by slightly sweeter malts.

Erzengel (5638) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - JAN 9, 2014
Brown in the glass with a light beige head. The beer starts dry, a bit smooth, but not that easy drinkable. Very dry and slightly roasted. The mainpart is full flavoured, but still a bit watery. The body is light and the aftertaste is quite short without leaving something in the mouth.
--> Nice Dunkel, but could be a bit deeper in aroma --> 10/12/9/9

ThirstyBird (2220) - London area, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 9, 2014
Thanks erzengel for sharing! Pours orangish brown, with a tan head. The smell is dark roasted malt, some fruit and brown sugar. The taste is like the nose ending dry. Light/medium body with silky carbonation.

On tap at the brewpub. Beer in the glass dark brown, nice head. Starts mild, modest malty-roasty, almost no hoppy notes. Very mild finish, malty wheaty. Should be drier.

Borresteijn (5471) - Zaandam, NETHERLANDS - NOV 12, 2011
1L swingtop bottle, thanks Kevin! Reddish brown colour, off white head. Aroma of dark fruits, light tart, grain, light roasted malts. Flavour is light sweet, dry, light roasted malts, cocoa, light tart dark fruits, paper, tart papery finish. Light bodied. Not bad, not great either.

Kristall-König (2498) - Oldenburg, GERMANY - SEP 9, 2011
Im Geruch dunkel-malzig, deutlich schokoladig und moderate Kaffeenoten. Süffig-malziger Antrunk. Alsbald verdichten sich die Kaffeearomen, werden dann aber im Mittel von einer angenehmen aromatischen Schokoladennote überlagert. Im Hintergrund Spuren von Honigmelone. Leicht trocken-malziger Abschied. Sehr gelungenes Bier.Test vom 27.12.2008, Gebinde: Glasflasche

Koelschtrinker (13105) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - JUN 3, 2011
Auch beim Dunklen findet sich der tyisch deutsche Brauhaustouch, getreidig, die Malzigkeit wirkt jung und kaum rlstig. Später intensiviert sich die Röstigkeit, unpassend dazu wirkt die Trockenheit. Die dunkelmalzigen Noten werden sofort eliminiert, das Bier wirkt so eintönig und stumpf. 10/8/7/7/6
