Erzengel (8517) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - OCT 26, 2014
Der Antrunk ist vollmundig, herb, trocken. Zum Hauptteil machen sich angenehm verbrannt Rstmalzaromen im Mund breit, sehr angenehme leichte malzigige Se. Der Nachgeschmack ist lang anhaltend, angenehm malzig-herb-rstmalzig mit einer sehr schnen Milde.
→ Ein sehr leckeres Schwarzbier, allerdings im Nachgeschmack vielleicht einen kleinen Tick zu slich. 12/12/11/12

ogivlado (7706) - Zagreb, CROATIA - JUN 16, 2010
Bottled 330ml. -Trade with Allen (thanks Julian!). Pitch black coloured, medium sized brown head, malty chocolate nose. Roasted malt, chocolate and prunes and other dried fruits but a bit too sweet. Second Appenzeller beer in last several weeks, and this one is few light years better than Qullfrisch Hell.

Medium brown head. Opaque black body. Coffee, earth, metal and peppery taste with minty sooty notes. Dry-sweetish ashy sooty chocolatey taste with minty cocoa notes. Nice, balanced, mild. (0.33l bottle from Allen.)

McTapps (6829) - Reutlingen, GERMANY - OCT 3, 2013
Pours out in a very deep black colour with low steady head and medium body. Nose of malt and coffee. Surprisingly nice taste of browned butter, malt, vanilla, woods and cake. Hints of brown sugar and light -very light- smoke (something I am allergic to). Nice and buttery finish. Beer got better the more air it got but it still was a little bit average and boring. Solid Schwarzbier though.

Bottle (33 cl), thanks to tkrjukoff. Black with a brown edge, medium beige head. Chocolate and fudge aroma, with some roasted coffee. A bit sweet, low bitterness.

MichaelAwesome (6517) - Wanne-Eickel, GERMANY - OCT 3, 2013
Fr ein schwarzbier recht mild und so gar nicht nach Hhnerbrhe schmeckend, doch ansonsten wie ein abgestandenes Export mit dunkler Farbe. Trinkbar und ohne Highlights. Ganz ok.

(bottle) black colour with a frothy brown head. aroma of bubble gum, marzipan and dark chocolate, with a hint of cherry schnaps, toffee and yeast. flavour is mostly brown sugar, dark fruit and milk chocolate, slightly sweet, with a hint of roasted malts, sugar icing and more yeast. medium-bodied with average carbonation. great stuff!

Big thanks to Allen for this one. Bottle looks great, as well as the beer in the glass. Deep black, small creamy head. Smoky aroma. Starts strong-malty, modest dry, fine smoky. Finish a little bit sweeter, prickly, wonderful balanced. Very drinkable and good beer!
