Erzengel (8536) - 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

King_Alex_II (1228) - SWITZERLAND - FEB 10, 2015
UPDATED: NOV 20, 2015 Pitch black color with light to medium brown foam. The smell is intensely coffee like with some roasted malt aromas and a decent fruitiness. The taste is coffeeish at first, with a lot of dark chocolate taste afterwards. There are little sweetish licorice notes there as well. The aftertaste is quite dry but very smooth. I don?t love the taste but I like the aftertaste, even though I don?t like coffee. This beer isnt far from some imperial stouts.

Pours nearly black. However palate is light, a small amount of smoke. Dark chocolate and dark malt dominates. It was served very cold. After warning I noticed a lot of honey on the nose and tongue.
