Gravity pour from the Pittermännchen-style Fass. Hazy brown-amber color with white head.
Aroma is roasted malts, nutty, earthy, a bit farty. Taste is roasted malts, chocolate, barnyard, earthy. Silky mouthfeel with natural carbonation. Very rustic, but tasty.
(Draught at Muted Horn, Berlin, 26 Aug 2017) Reddish amber colour with frothy, beige head. Malty, roasted nose with notes of caramel, bread and toast. Malty, slightly roasted taste with caramel, dark bread, toast and a dry finish with a balanced spicy bitterness. Medium body, quite dry. Tasty and well balanced. Quite nice. kerenmk (5269) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - NOV 2, 2017

Lovely rich malty aroma, grainy, but clean. Barley all over the taste too. Super dunkel, just what I look for in the style. Great drinkability, but a fullish palate too.
Frisch vom Hahn im Muted Horn. Klares Kuperbraun im Glas mit dünner Schaumdecke. In der Nase zurückhaltend. Schöne Bitternoten kommen auf, bleiben aber nicht. Marduk (8512) - Reval, ESTONIA - JUL 27, 2017
500ml bottle (thanks Karmo). Clear dark chestnut color. Small size, beige bubbly head, stays. Grainy, sour kraut, caramel, metallic in aroma. Husky, caramel, malty, dusty, herbal hops in taste. Nice dry mouthfeel. Hopping is nice, but lacks of dunkel body. Drinkable brew. martjoobolut (5236) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JUL 27, 2017
Bottle (thanks karmo). Pours copper. Aroma is caramel, malt, sauerkraut, bread. Flavor is sweet and caramel, malt, nuttiness, some bitterness. Finish is dry-nutty bitter. Overall: good. ippopotamo36 (2587) - Rome, ITALY - MAR 29, 2017
Tap at Ma Che Siete Venuti a Fa, Rome-Italy. Amber clear pour which talks to cola, frothy and tick amberish foam. Nose: charming and seducing caramel, nuts, pastry. Hidden roast and grass. Wow. Mouth: medium carbo, roast pils, rustic crumb, aggressively burnt malts. Peculiar and tasty dunkel. Just great. Fin (10974) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - FEB 11, 2017
Cask, gravity from, Scurreria, Genova, Italy, Friday 10th February 2017 This beer is just plonked on the bar in a small cask (pin) and has just been tapped, how fab. Crystal clear chestnut brown with a light filmy head. Quite nutty, biscuity, caramel topped biscuity loveliness, soft maltiness. This is not a hop monster, it’s not a big Impy Stout, it’s not a sour mouth zapper in fact in many respects it’s not a million miles from the sort of beer that I’d have been drinking when I started out. It’s just a real pleasant, session drinking beer, its so easy drinking, it’s bloody lovely and quite the opposite from the hop monster I’d just had, blah, blah.......anyway that’s enough of the beer, great though it was.
So this is my 10,000 beer but let’s face it, it’s not really is it, there are plenty of beers I’ve had which I’ve forgotten to rate or which the brewers details are so obscure that I cannot add them, this is merely the beer that sits at 10k. Anyhow enough of that we’re in Scurreria the best pub in Genova chatting with Giorgio the joint owner about all things beery and would you believe it he knows Angelo (Moncada) from a big night out in London ten years ago drinking Crouch Vale Brewers Gold and then crashing at his flat in a drunken state, and it got me thinking just how this beer world we inhabit works, it’s a small world, and by and large it’s a very friendly world, and you get chatting to folk and there are so many connections. I was less bothered about what beer I’d have to hit 10k and more concerned about where I’d have it, so sitting here felt just right. The folk on this site mean a lot to me and so I want to thank you all. I did start writing everyones name down but then felt a bit panicky in case I missed anyone. So many thanks to all of you and hope to see you soon, I’ll stop now before it sounds like a twatty Oscars speech. A7 A5 T8 P4 Ov16 4.0
