Koelschtrinker (11151) - Köln (Cologne), - OCT 2, 2012
Leicht oxidierter Start mit mild dunkelmalzigen Noten. Dunkel bleibend, gering hefig, passende Trockenheit. Wenig herb, nur sehr leichte Karamellnoten. Zum Ende noch stärker karamellig werdend, milde Bitterkeit, süffig. Vielen Dank an Grima für das eingestellte Bier! 9/9/9/10/11/10

0,33 l bottle. A beer I remember very well. Dark in colour with a lot if different aroma in. Lots of malt, bitter and with a dark soul. Only the name didn’t match the taste. Would like to drink it again.

The bottle looks really good, the beer in the glass also. Hoppy-dry aroma. Starts mild-malty, the middle is more roasty, burnt, scratchy. The finish is well balanced, modest malty. Okay, but not more.

A slightly bigger version of Diebles Alt, and their version of "sticke" or secret beer. Bigger in flavor and alcohol, and a decent example of stickebier, but like Diebels Alt, not a classic example of the style. Pours to a deep copper color, with a tight white head that fades, and a moderate to soft carbonation. The nose has some nice herbal hop aromatics, with some sweet malt aroma. Body is a little slicker on the tongue than altbier, and has a touch more sweetness, and a hints of dark toast. Finishes with more malt up front, then ends with a quick snap of herbal hop bitterness. A good beer, worth trying if but once.

Dark brown coloured. Sweet and malty with roasty notes. Slightly one-dimensional.

Ungstrup (29954) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - MAR 23, 2004
A red brown beer with a small disappearing head. It has no aroma at all. The flavor is sour malty with notes of roasted bread - if this weren't German I'd bet there had been used brewing cereal in it - a boring German Ale.

Jeppe (2631) - Brooklyn, USA - MAR 22, 2004
Dark hazy body with a fine head. Sweet aroma of pilsner malt (?) and a little alcohol. Flavor is nice and smooth with notes of dark roasted malt and spices. An easy drinkable ale!

Completely black. Strong rye flavour. Uninteresting brew. I would have never bought this one myself, but if someone is offering it to you... It's hard to say no when it comes to beer... ;-)

Dark but not black. Decent off white head. Had a skunkiness ala Sam Smiths. The flavor was pretty good. Has a coffee flavor to it which I enjoyed. Thin in the malts and hops.
