yngwie (16423) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - NOV 2, 2012
Bottle, 75cl. It pours a lightly unclear body, golden in color and with a small, dense, off-white head. It’s lightly spiced on the nose, with some sugar, a touch of spices, some nuttyness, hazelnuts I think, and a hint of caramel. Medium to full body, with a pleasant carbonation and flavors of caramel, spices, nuts and white sugar. Nutty, caramel finish. Certainly an interesting one. Unusual in a way, but nice. 121102

# 3132 ersma: bier mit maronen gibts ja nicht all zu oft. biere der brauerei allerdings schon öfter. gutes marketing, offensichtlich. dunkel bernsteinfarben, mittelviel schaum, der schnell weg ist. der geruch ist hhopfig-fruchtig mit säuerlicher beinote. der antrunk ist säuerlich-herb mit zitrusnoten. zur mitte kommt dann der maronengeschmack zum vorschein und wird zunehmend stärker. die säuerlichkeit bleibt allerdigs bis in den abgang dominant. der ist deutlich maronig, dazu recht herb. die hauseigene 0.75-l-pulle mit reliefprägung ist sehr ansehnlich. fazit: etwas weniger säure täte dem ganzen gut und würde nicht von der marone ablenken. dennoch gut trinkbar und aufgrund der kuriosität probierenswert. 10,9,10,10,14,10 - 10,05 - 24/1

corby112 (2804) - philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 4, 2012
Pours an opaque dark amber, chestnut brown color with a one finger light beige head that quickly settles into a thin ring.  Minimal spots of lace left behind. Earthy, spicy aroma with soily/dirty hops, pepper, sweet malt and dark fruit.  As it warms, the malts come forward with hints of hazelnut, caramel, toffee, coffee bean and toast.  Strange combination of yeast, spice and hops in the nose. Medium bodied with light carbonation and a slightly syrupy, medicinal fell.   Zesty spice and grassy, piny hops give off some dry bitterness that lingers over the spices and malt backbone into a dry finish.  Hints of pepper and cinnamon followed by caramel malt, nut and toffee.  Slight astringent finish which is too dry for my preference.
