Golden brown. Toasty nose with light toffee notes and a very subtle spiciness. Tasty but dry palate. Hints of chocolate and light cocoa. A little thin in the finish, as many Franconian darks are. TBone (18105) - Pori, FINLAND - NOV 14, 2009

Dark ruby brown color, small beige head. Sticky barnyard-toffee aroma. Medium-bodied. Flavor has barnyard, toffee and some hoppy notes in the finish. Strange. Probably past its prime.
Bottle @ Bamberg. Pours clear dark amber with a creamy white head and lacings. Buiscuit, bread, caramel and some grassy jops. Medium and smooth palate. Very malty and overall nice.

Bottle, 5% as Krug-Bräu Lager. Very weak spicy aroma. Clear brown colour. Nice, frothy tan head. The flavour is slightly malty, but does not taste very "dark", not sweet or roasted, that is. Slightly buttery aftertaste, turning weakly smoked after a while. Watery mouthfeel and thin flavour. High carbonation. DSG (15118) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - MAR 22, 2015
Bottle sample at the Beer & Beyond shop. Thanks beerandbeyond. As Krug-Bräu Lager. Clear amber. Aroma of malt, caramel, graininess, vegetal notes and a bit of toast. Sweetish flavor, malty, with caramel, toast, a vegetal note, and a drier and slightly bitterish finish. Rather light-bodied. bierkoning (13615) - La Tropica/Doarp, NETHERLANDS - MAY 21, 2002
UPDATED: OCT 17, 2014 Aroma has wood and fruit (pear, pineapple). Thick, creamy, long-lasting head. Low carbonation, although more than some other beers of this type. Hoppy and fruity. Hopbitter finish with some (beech)wood.
That was a long time ago! From bottle, october 2014. Dark brown color. Chocolate and malt in the aroma. Caramel. Malty sweet flavor, bready. Caramelly. Carbonation is soft. Just enough grassy hops the balance the beer out. Rune (13383) - Tromsø, NORWAY - NOV 2, 2014
500ml bottle picked up at Bierothek in Bamberg. Poured a clear golden-brown coloured body. Lasting, fair lacing, white head. Smell and taste of pale and brown caramel malts. Hints of cardboard towards the ending. Has not got so much to offer (Grand tasting at the balcony, Fässla, Bamberg 12.10.2014). Bov (13219) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - NOV 25, 2011
courtesy of fiulijn - clear dark ruby-brown beer with a poor chaotic foam left; the aroma is meaty and slightly sourish; medium-bodied and tart; some biting bitterness and an earthy, meat-like finish - weird
