Brew Masters’ Private Reserve is an exceptionally rich beer that is a symphony of character, featuring a balanced hop aroma with 8.5 percent alcohol by volume (ABV). Based on the time-honored Budweiser brewmaster holiday tradition of collecting the richest first part of the brew as it is tapped to the brew kettles to celebrate the season, this is the first time it is being made available to the public.

bought downtown, big ole bottle all to myself ...(why did i do this) .... pours a dark brown maroon colour .. a good maltster head on the medium pour .. but the lacing i say needs more work ... there are some nice simple flavours, caramel and maple, things of that sort ... "attire optional" ... shows the alcohol near the end, but it is a pretty good offering from the bud guys... 7-14-08 ..$52 billion offer from inbev for bud today...

Vintage 2006 bottle pours a golden orange color with a decent sized beige head that fades rather quickly. Aroma of burnt sugar, dried fruit and malts with a background of spicy hops. Flavor is pretty smooth, sweet and malty. There is a little bitterness in the finish. The 8.5% is well hidden. Not bad overall and definitely not something you’d expect from Anheuser Busch.

Nice malty flavor. Light on aroma and hoppiness. Good, smooth flavor with no aftertaste. The high alcohol content doesn’t affect the taste. Mine poured darker than what is pictured. More like a dark lager, which is what it tasted like. It was from 2007. I recommend.

I can honestly say that thia was not what I was expexcting at all. Very disappointing beer from AB. I drank it anyway... it was drinkable.

Papsoe (25074) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JUN 15, 2008
(Bottle 137 cl) Courtesy of MaltOMeal. Pours a clear amber golden with a creamy, beige head. Aroma of roasted malt and Danish rye bread. Medium body with roasted malt and Danish rye bread again - perhaps also a whiff of sulphur. Rather solid bitterness. This is by no means a great Doppelbock, but seing people’s ratings it’s obvious that there’s a lot of negative bias against it - just because it’s a Bud. Bud at least in the 2007 version it’s a rather decent beer. So skip all your prejudices please. 140608

i thought this beer was terrible, it just tasted like strong budweiser, with all the resources and money that have, they really could have come out with something cool...i can’t really say i’m disappointed though, i had low expectations

Courtesy of Papsoe. Clear deep amber with tiny short lasting off white head. Sweet aroma with caramel, toasted malt and overripe fruits. Sweet flavor with overripe fruits, caramel and malty notes. Warming alcohol kicks in at the end. Somewhat vinious.

Maria (10187) - Thisted, DENMARK - JUN 8, 2008
Vintage 2007, courtesy of Papsoe. It’s beautiful, red-golden with a sweet and vinous aroma with notes of raisin, fruit, roasted malt and caramel. The flavour has a malty sweetness, it’s slightly vinous with notes of raisin, caramel and slightly grapefruit-like hops. It’s surprisingly light in the overall impression, but nice.

Moderated sweet flavor with a hint of bitterness. Malty and fruity warming alcoholic texture. 7 / 3 / 7 / 3 / 14
