Nose of almost Gueuze-like bitterness, lots of deep plum. Pours a thick, muddy amber-purple. Taste of boysenberry and mossy tree bark, with short finish, vanishing palate. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

McTapps (6502) - Reutlingen, GERMANY - AUG 3, 2013
I enjoyed the first one, two beers of this brand a lot but unfortunately reaching the end of their selection I got more and more dissappointed. This one pours out in a unclear dark brown / blackish colour with steady low head and medium body. Nose of citrus fruits and roast. Taste of roasted malt, campfiree, woods, sour plums, torf and sour berries. Smokey hints and a dull, roasty, too sour finish. Not easy and not nice to drink, neither quaffable nor refreshing.

Mit "roasted malt" hat die Geschichte hier eigentlich nichts zu tun, denn hier wird nur geräuchert. Der Beginn ist interessant, denn von vorne kommen saure Früchte - ein paar Himbeeren und unreife Pflaumen. Ist der Schluck aber zu Ende, so kommt von hinten raus der Räucherschinken, nein, eher die Räuchersocke. Wer es "smoked" mag, trifft es hier ganz gut. Wer nicht, der schüttelt angewidert den Kopf. So wie ich.

Russo (2012) - Hemhofen, GERMANY - JUN 23, 2013
Hazy brown color with a nice beige head. Aroma is soar with hints of roasted malt and cherry. Flavor is sweet and soar, quite weird hints of plum. Medium bodied and with a soft carbonation, mouthfeel is a balanced soar and roasted malt.

Red brown color, beige head. Nose is medicinal, tincture, fernet. Carbon seems to be high, body thin and texture soft. Taste is sour. Palate like in pharmacy, chicory and herbs liquere. Bitter finish. B@H

rand (1490) - SWITZERLAND - JAN 26, 2013
Bouteille 33 clé de la Cave du Vénitien - La Roche-en-Ardenne (B). Brune à belle mousse ocre et fine. Nez fruité, vineux comme une Brune des Flandres, rôti, note houblonnée. La bouche est relevée, torréfiée, café, boisé, épices, sirop de Liège et compote de prune. Notes acidulées-astringentes délicates et de houblon. Une bière entre deux styles, rafraîchissante et encore plus complexe et ronde lorsqu’elle est moins froide.

Bottle from Malting Pot. Dark brown body with toasty head. Nose is sweet malts, caramel, brown sugar and spices. Taste is similar with malts, caramel and then ginger notes. Finish is sweet and spicy. Okay.
