Erzengel (8626) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - OCT 26, 2014
Rated as Brauns Achhörnla. Schöne kastanienbraune Farbe, malzig-trockener Geruch. Der Antrunk ist angenehm vollmundig-trocken-malzig. Ganz leicht süßlich. Zum Hauptteil kommt eine süßlich-gherbe Note hinzu, sie sich aber doch in Hintergrund hält und zum Nachgeschmack hin den herberen Part hervorbringt. Eine Herb-malzige Note verbleibt im Mund, die Süße ist fast ganz verschwunden. Schöne herb-trockene Note, Dunkles Laub, ganz leicht säuerlich.

Draught at Brauerei Eichhorn, Nov. 2012: Bronze with golden highlights. Creamy and persistent cap of clingy meringue. Clean, airy, expressively malty nose teems with melanoidins, hazelnut, browned toffee, nuts, earthy cocoa, and a vibrant "green" hoppiness. Underlying tropical fruitiness. Firm, snug carbonation. Tease of estery fruitiness yields to wonderfully crisp, toffee-kissed Munich and a savory medley of fresh baguette and creamed coffee. Splash of licorice underscores the maltiness with deft restraint. Pronounced bite of yeast and minerals accentuates the seductively juicy malt bill. Hops pack plenty of luster, as well. Exceptionally succulent florals artfully mirror the fat and juicy melanoidins. Chewy, mouth-filing dextrins and a bitter edge of pumpernickel bread saturate the dry, cleanly attenuated finish. A flawless example devoid of the boring cola dullness, etc. An amazingly clean, quaffable, and intricate version. rauchbierlover (648) - Berlin, Berlin, GERMANY - FEB 16, 2014

UPDATED: DEC 21, 2013 draft at Brauerei Eichhorn in Forchheim. soft and toasty nose presents munich malt cracker and baked cookie goodness with a sweet touch of toffee candies and a rustic, slightly-chalky yeast with faint metallic touches. sweet with a slick texture on the approach, frothy carbonation and solid crispness to the body, tempered somewhat by the sweet toast / nut character of the dark malt. endlessly enjoyable. rlgk (18847) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - JAN 28, 2014

Draft at the brewery during the Bamberg Jolly of January 2014. Pours clear, dark gold with a foamy, off-white head. Solid low octane dunkel. Pleasant notes of toasted bread, light tin, leaves, brown sugar. Light to medium bodied with average carbonation. Sweet finish with further notes of toasted bread and mellow brown sugar. Nice. oh6gdx (26482) - Vasa, FINLAND - DEC 31, 2011
Bottled. Deep amber colour with a mediumsized off-white head. Aroma is mildly toasted malts, some slight caramel, toffee and dark berries. Flavour is sweet malts along with mild toasted notes. Also surprisingly hopped for a dunkel, has a quite bittery undertone to it. Mild sourish wood lurking in the background. blipp (9175) - La Mesa, California, USA - SEP 4, 2012
Draft. Pours amber with a beige head. Toasted malty, with bread and grains, and lighter earthy hoppy notes. Toasted malty finish. Pretty good. madmitch76 (24511) - , Essex, ENGLAND - FEB 8, 2014
