TAR (2729) - Marshall (Asheville area), North Carolina, USA - APR 18, 2017
Bottle best by June 1, 2016, consumed Nov. 2015: Clear garnet. Fine but broken off-white head. Papery and waxy nose, with underlying prune juice, brown sugar, pumpernickel bread, chocolate, caramel and wet carpet. Discordant leaves a foamy residue on the palate. Opens with notes of overripe plums and medicinal characteristics. Poorly extracted malt predominates with paper and soggy cereal notes. Incessant gritty sugars greatly hamper drinkability. Finishes cola sugary with some cardboard and unwelcome raisiny flavors lingering. Zero discernible hops to help with balance. A fairly dirty and underattenuated (semi-worty, in this case) Franconian dark lager. Unpleasant.

Beerhunter111 (19192) - P´Castle, GERMANY - FEB 19, 2016
50cl bottle. Pours clear orange brown colour with a mid-sized most good lasting beige head. Aroma of toasted dark malt, caramel, some chocolate. Taste of mild roasted malt, floral hops, some chocolate, good one!

3fourths (9299) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - NOV 22, 2015
Bottle best by June 2016. Lightly hazed dark maroon-brown body with a short tan colored head. Aroma is malt-dominant with notes of roasted grain, peanuts, dirty dish water, compost / soil, autolyzed yeast. Medium-light bodied, sweet and sharp with low bitterness and noticeable burnt grain astringency on the palate that tastes like burnt pancake batter, finishing slightly sour.

Icedwarf (1512) - Etten-Leur, NETHERLANDS - AUG 21, 2015
Lichtbruin bier met weinig schuim. Scmaak is licht rokig en licht caramel en zoethout, niet zoet. Erg goed bier. Gedronken op terras bij Schöngroundsee Pottenstein.

Marheb (5633) - San Diego, California, USA - NOV 4, 2014
(Bue sur place): Une onctueuse soupe caramélisée qui libère ses atouts comme la mélasse, cannelle, poivre et tire d’érable. Très pain et très moelleux avec une finale de chlorophylle amère. Plus sucrée que certaine mais avec la finale tranchante pour balancer.

MartinT (9729) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 17, 2014
My Bottom Line:
Light diacetyl emboldens this Dunkel’s raisiny malts, as earthy hops and maple toffee continue developing the sugary profile.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A creamy sheet of foam covers the cloudy brown.
-Drinkability is relatively high despite the sugar content.
-This is not a dialed-in Dunkel at all.
-Minerality is quite high, as it seems to be in most Pottenstein-area brews.

On tap at the brewpub.

Erzengel (8447) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - DEC 30, 2013
Rated as "Urdunkel" 4.7%
Das Bier ist schön röstmalzig-herb. Die doch erstaunlich stark ausfallende Herbe kommt im Nachgeschmack noch einmal voll zur Geltung und bleibt mit den Röstmalzaromen noch deutlich spürbar lange auf der Zunge. Im Hauptteil kommt auch eine leichte Süße zum Vorschein, die aber nicht wirklich gegen die Herbe ankommt. Ganz zum Ende des Nachgeschmacks wird es dann wieder einen ganz kleinen Tick süßer…
