sound67 (223) - Offenbach, GERMANY - NOV 10, 2009
50cl dark brown bottle, as shown. Pours a nutty brown (NOT a golden brown!) with a big, soapy light beige head with good retention and generous lacing. Aroma is surprisingly yeasty, with a note of grapes - the overall effect is that of sour rye bread. More like the smell of pilsener, come to think of it. Medium carbonation, light to medium-bodied - again, closer to a blonde than to a schwarzbier, even! Earthy, slightly watery mouth feel. Taste is surprisingly light for a dark beer - if I closed my eyes, I would swear I wasn’t tasting a schwarzbier at all! Light roasted malts, some citrusy elements - an overall sourness, with a weakly bitter finish. Hardly any after taste, except some metal maybe. Those who are into stouts, or porters, or even schwarzbiers, will be gravely disappointed by this brew. A lagerish wimp that masks as a dunkel - if you compare it to Köstritzer Schwarzbier, or even Krusovice, it comes across as half-baked and undernourished. Not a good beer.

Clear deep golden wit a large off white head. Aroma was somewhat sweet and had roasted malt and hints of caramel notes. Flavour was sweet with caramel, roasted malt, grassy hops and toffee notes. Finished light bitter from the grassy hops.

Slipstream (2024) - USA - MAR 13, 2009
On the label it is called both a doppelbock and a malt liquor, and Ratebeer calls it a dunkel. There is a nice winter scene on the label. Light, sweet malty aroma. Malt dominates the taste, with coffee, cola, and dry hops. This has both sweetness and bitterness, and they are in balance. Pretty light body. Good.

While shopping today I stumbled across this year’s first winter beer. It is the 8th of October, we have 22°C outside and the sun is shining - Good heavens, is it already winter? Anyway, the beer looks god, dark brown colour with a mlarge and creamy beige head. Malty nose. Full-bodied, pleasantly malty with lots of flavours going on: roasted malt, caramel and dried fruit. Balanced of with a decent amount of aromatic and bitter hops. Much better than expected, I actually liked this, although it is too early in the year. Hopefully there won’t be any Easter specials in December...
