COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Christoffel Robertus is a low-fermenting ruby-red beer, brewed in the Münchener-style. It is a malty, fresh beer with a light sweetness. The typical hopbitterness found in Blond, is very lightly present in Robertus. The use of an extensive amount of selected barley gives Robertus the special malty taste and aroma.

brainlair (236) - Maryland, USA - JUN 27, 2010
330mL bottle. A gusher. Pours a very dark brown with some off-white head. Aroma has tons of caramel malt, some cereal, citrus, as well as bit of spicy black pepper. Flavor is very malty with medium sweetness, lots of citrus and cherries, and a very faint hint of tartness. Finsh has a mild hoppy bitterness with some citrus peel.

Bottle from Superbest, Copenhagen. Pours a deep mahogany colour with a big tan head. Strong malty nose, nutty.Taste is the same, nutty, but with a not so good alcohol presence towards the end. Weak in the bitter division. Lively carbonated.

Nickls (1887) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - MAY 3, 2010
(OId BA rate - bottle) Pours with a thin white head that quickly dissipates. Brownish/dark with ruby/pink hints of color with slight carbonation bubbles rising up. Very murky and can’t see through it. Great malty sweetness and fruitiness, and just a tad bit tart. Definitely malty (close to a lot of flavors I associate with a dopplebock), cherry-like tartness. No real hop presence, and fairly fruity. Medium to thin, with very little carbonation. This is decently drinkable, but the fruitiness and cherry-like flavors were a bit much for me considering the style. That hindered the drinkability for me. Overall, not bad stuff

Vaiz (3567) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - MAR 16, 2010
bottle at home. Pours an almost clear dark ruby red color with a thin off-white head. Aroma is dominated by sugar and has some fruits. Flavor is quite sweet, but with a definite bitterness coming up halfway and emerging well into the finish. There is some fruits, licorice and even some spices, but mostly it’s just sugar. Watery texture, low carbonation.

mabel (6723) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 9, 2010
[2664-20091216] 330mL bottle. Aroma has notes of fruit and malty bark apple as it warms. Hazy, dark red brown body with a quick foamy off-white head. Heavy date apple fruit malt flavour with chocolate booze and a hint of twig. Full body. Wow, solid and boozy and good.

thebeertourist (4904) - Oslo, NORWAY - FEB 22, 2010
Bottle from Utobeer. Dark reddish brown with a big, tan head. Solid malty and nutty nose. Wonderful nutty flavours, no compromise. Decently dry. Full body. A great bockbier.

BillKismet (3360) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JAN 19, 2010
Murky chestnut color with a thick beige head. Wonderfully toasty and melanoidin infused nose that translates into a warm, toasty, biscuity flavor with a strong melanoiding component as well. This brew, as is apt for the style, is replete with Vienna malt, endowing it with a sweet and toasty body that straddles the demarcation between Vienna and Oktoberfest. Wisps of caramel, toffee, and light hazelnut round at the experience.

Bottled 33cl. It pours a beautiful nut brown beer with a beige head. Walnuts, raisin, marshmallow, banana and pumpernickel showing up in the nose. Sweet smooth malty taste with hints of banana, caramel, raisin and marshmallow. Good balance. Nutty finish.
