Koelschtrinker (21842) - K?ln (Cologne), GERMANY - JUN 12, 2011
Das Bier ist sehr malzbetont, besonders im Abgang kann man die röstmalzigen Aromen gut erschmecken. Dabei ist das Bier unglaublich süffig, obwohl man zum Abgang hin auch alkoholische Noten erahnen kann. Dennoch ein hervorragendes Bier.
Test vom 16.6.2006, Gebinde: Glasflasche Noten: 14,13,14,12,13,13 - 13,10
Earlier Rating: 6/12/2011 Total Score: 4
Wässriger (Röst-) Malzantrunk. Dieser Ton festig sich im Mittelteil, die Wässrigkeit nimmt deutlich ab. Das Bier wird langsam würziger und wirkt im Abgang deutlich voluminöser, da die anfängliche Wässrigkeit durch herbe Malztöne ersetzt wurde. Etwas karamellig, zum Ende hin vollmundig.
Danke an FaustusI für das Bier.

bartlebier (4161) - Belchium im Biersgau, GERMANY - JAN 9, 2016
UPDATED: JAN 25, 2016 50cl bb06/2016, REWE Bayreuth as "Festbier". - Fluffy maroni dark pour, velvet beige foam. Ar: Roasted nuts, maroni parfait, milk chocolate mousse, crème caramel, woody and even smoked juniper notes - lovely. Flavour: nut caramel parfait, Christstollen, milk chocolate - then a distinctly woody herbal hop bitterness I have only tasted in Franconian Dunkels, of near Alt character. Wonderful silky-smooth, fluffy mouthfeel for a dark speciality lager, truly impressive, ensuring a downability in a few gulps, which is what makes this beer shine. Big surprise and true brewing art in such a modest bully buddel. - Cf. #spezielles Maischverfahren, #Spezialmalze #wurstpudding. - ---- ---- ---- ---- ---- ---- ---- ---- ---- ---- ---- ---- ---- ----
As "Weihnachtsbier", 5,5 ABV, bb06/2016 (2 different bottles of Festbier and Weihnachtsbier bought separately): still tasty, less impressive: earthy almond, marzipan mixed with slight wiffs of abv, highly drinkable. De-alias might be in order given that you can buy both in different bottles in the same market.

Bottled. Very interesting aroma. A combo you don’t get much: herbal, chocolate, dark slightly smoked malts. Deep brown color, beige head, good lace. Light sweet, light sourish, herbal, light bitter, chocolate. Sparkling yet dryish. Very nice, thank you DerDoppelbock.

hopscotch (11333) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - FEB 13, 2011
Bottle… February in Franconia (2011)… Clear, dark copper lager with a large, creamy, mushroom-colored head. Fantastic retention and lacing. The mashy, grainy aroma offers notes of mocha and nuts alongside strong suggestions of caramel and vanilla. Medium to full-bodied and creamy with soft carbonation. Well-balanced. Grainy, warm mash flavor – light caramel and chocolate malts and toasted barley. Finishes crisp and hearty yet refreshing. Tastes like an obscure region of Germany that I hope-against-hope to visit one day. Thanks go out to erlangernick and Koelschtrinker for making this this month of Franconian lagers possible!
