3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
355ml bottle at Porterhouse Cork. Pours a deep ruby-black with a thin off-white head. Aroma is quite lagery, grassy caramel, bit of hop, quite acidic. Taste is medium sweetness and medium bitterness. Quite perfumed, floral rose overtones. Lively carbonation, floral aftertaste. Reasonable, but not a great representation of the style.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours attractive deep amber-red with foamy tan head that quickly reduces but leaves long-lasting skim.
Aroma is malt, spiced pear, brown sugar. Taste is softly caramel, figs and the occasional mild hit of spice. There’s a bit of heat from the alcohol, but in general it is unassertive, very light and drinkable for 7.5 ABV. Finish is nicely dry.
This fills the bill for a drinkable, supportive table wine, able to complement food or stand on its own as needed.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Tried bottled. Bought in Austria. Colour is dark brown/amber. Poor retention of small weight head. Aroma is malts, pear, slight chocolate and caramel. Taste is sweet, initially pear, caramel and a slight metallic after note with a earthy hoppy finish. Mouthfeel is like champagne with the same dry finish. Nice beer in a nice bottle.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Smells like firewood and pears. Tastes somewhat similar, with added notes of dried fruit, a hint of red wine, and something else I can’t quite place. I like it.

Pours copper brown, slightly hazy, nice beige foam. Aroma has prunes, toffee, sweet dark marmelade. Taste has dried dark fruits, hint of hops, medium body. Not too much going on here but nit bad and aftertaste lingers for a while. Wigs and some herb tea.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Again, thanks to Mas Plenum people for cracking this one open! At Vinocom. Poured a brown-amber body with a small, thick beige head. Sweet malty aroma, apfelstrudel, pleasant fruity notes. Sweet, creamy taste, that what was in the aroma makes a repeat performance too. Mild for the ABV in a way and very drinkable.
