Ein Bier mit besonderem Charakter. Unser Bier des Jahres 2008, das zum Dauerbrenner avanciert ist. Rötlich in der Farbe mit kraftvoller Schaumkrone. Vollmundig im Geschmack, mit malzaromatischer Note und elegant abklingender Bittere.

It’s unclear, dark-golden with an orange hue and a huge, creamy head. The aroma has light notes of acetone, but also malt, caramel and fruit. The sweetish flavor has notes of malt, fruit and light acetone, and in the finish I find sweet caramel.

Bottle looks very good, the beer in the glass okay. Light brown, small head. Starts strong and very dry, rusty, scratchy. Finish a bittle bit milder, but still very dry and unbalanced. Not my favourite!

Clear brown colour. Almost no head. The flavour is caramelly, dusty and slightly spicy. Low to medium bitterness.

(bottle) pours a hazy amber-brown colour with a frothy off-white head. faint aroma of cardboard, light strawberries and caramel, with a hint of cinnamon, roasted malts and treebark. flavour is mostly roasted malts and cardboard, with notes of walnuts, caramel and earth, some slightly tart hints of apricot and a light roasted-bitter finish. medium-bodied with average carbonation.

bartlebier (1480) - Belchum im Breisgau, GERMANY - FEB 5, 2014
33cl fresh fliptop, changing ICEs in Mannheim 02/2014. Pours a watery red-brown with stable head. Aroma of pregnant malts and a whiff of alcohol. Taste is slightly better, adding some dry Vienna malt aromatics and a superficial spicy hop tinge (extract) that does not entirely come together with the malts and pedestrian yeast profile. What use producing a specialty red beer if you are going to resort to extract (and underachieving bottom-fermentors)?

McTapps (3558) - Ruhrcity, North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - JUN 4, 2014
Bottle from kevnic2008 - many thanks! The beer pours out in a deep dark ruby-brown colour with low head and medium body. Aroma of nuts, caramel and malt. Taste of malt, barley, bread, caramel, torf and dark berries. Easy drinkable with vanilla hints.

MichaelAwesome (3558) - Wanne-Eickel, GERMANY - JUN 4, 2014
Wie schon gedacht, sind hier Malz, etwas Karamell und ein wenig an Süße mit von der Partie. Recht süffig, aber auch zum Ende hin so malzig, dass ich abwinke. Bieder und ordentlich.

kiwianer (3317) - Otorohanga, NEW ZEALAND - MAY 28, 2012
Die Schaumkrone hält mittelmäßig, trüb und dunkle Farbe. Geschmacklich leicht hopfig, malzig, die malzigkeit ist auch im Nachgeschmack noch vertreten. Fazit: Trinkbar hatte aber mehr erwartet. Test vom 22.5.2009, Gebinde: Glasflasche Noten: 9,8,8,9,10,8 - 8,35
