11/07/2011 33cl bottle @ home - BB: 14/2/2015 (2011-319)

Little cloudy reddish amber coloured beer, no head. Aroma: very sweet malts, raisins, toffee and hint of mocha, ripe fruits, caramel, more mocha, candi sugar. Amazingly complex and interesting. MF: very little carbon, full body. Taste: sweet malts up front, bitter comes very fast and overtakes the sweetness completely. Orange peel, citrus notes, bit of grapefruit. Aftertaste: alcohol sweetness compensating the hops quite well, then a very bitter ending with a touch of citrus and bit of mocha. Alcohol work pretty numbing.

kerolasa (409) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 10, 2011
Read clear color, perhaps bit brown. Very light brown head. Sweet malty smell. Caramel taste. Hops come later, and are light. Texture is sticky. Not my favorite. I’d classify this as winter bock.

maneliquor (3057) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - JUL 8, 2011
Bottle. Not sure on the age of this one but I think it may be around a year old since it was brewed (couldn’t find anything to confirm or say otherwise but know when the last shipment for this was). Pours a very murky orange with a nice beige head. Looks great, not a great deal of lacing. Aroma is all about dried fruits and banana. Almost like toffee apple. Heavily toffee/honey malts. Loads of banana and dried apple in the taste with a long lasting, very thick honey note throughout. Mouthfeel is very full and creamy. Very good beer

Benzai (8111) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - JUN 13, 2011
Red brown color, not much sent, but may have been too cold. Taste is reasonably good, but I taste a little too much alcohol.

DutchDrebus (3956) - Oirschot, NETHERLANDS - JUN 13, 2011
Very nice taste, a bit hoppy but not enough for me. I like really hoppy beers and this one wasn’t hoppy enough. But still it’s a very nice beer and i would be happy to drink this one again.

Koelschtrinker (10476) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - MAY 29, 2011
Aromatisch malzig-würziger und hopfiger Antrunk. Hierbei intensiviert sich der Geschmack im Mittelteil, in dem sich die Aromen intensivieren und das Bier einen Mittelweg aus Süffigkeit und Intensität nimmt. Die würzige, fast honigartige Malznote wird hierbei von einem säuerlichen Hauch durchzogen und entwickelt mit der Zeit leichte Karamellnoten. Insgesamt wirkt das Aroma aber fest bestimmt. Zum Ende wenig herb. Gelungenes Bier mit gelungenem Tiefgang. 9/11/11/12/11/12
