HonusWagner (1680) - Florida, USA - JUL 13, 2014
Thinnish body for the style. Medium sweetness of hard caramels, little hop presence. Touch charred. Easy to drink.

jonas (5984) - Garching b. München, GERMANY - MAR 20, 2015
0.33l bottle. Chestnut, offwhite head. Fruity and hoppy aroma with nutty and wooden undertones, a bit dubbel-like. Medium body, quite dry chewy body, some sparkles. Wood/barn dryness, chestnuts, citrus from the hops, light berries. I’m not too fond of the dry minerally notes, but it certainly packs some flavors.

jb (2372) - Rochester, New York, USA - MAR 3, 2015
Bottle from Nathanial’s. Medium chestnut brown, Very murky. Thin head, spotty soapy lacing and zero retention. Nose has a lot going on, plenty of dark fruit, caramel, some spiciness. Mouthfeel is semi balanced with the carbonation acting as a foil for the sweetness. But it is still a bit too sweet. Overall this is missing something after showing promise.

PapaSkeetSkeet (983) - Providence, Rhode Island, USA - FEB 17, 2015
dark brown, but bright when held to the light. 3mm medium-coarseness head. Fades at a moderate rate to film. Aroma is light mix of caramel, dates, and raisin, some dark sweet-bread dough, with a touch of forest in the background. Body is medium-medium-light, starchy, slightly oily and gritty, medium-light carbonation of moderate coarseness. Light burn but scratchy, prolonged wool texture. Flavor is twig and sap with a light turbinado sugar sweetness, clean. Hint of floral herbs. Pleasant aftertaste of vegetation and wood. Overall, a nice big alt; it doesn’t live up to their description though. I didn’t get any smoke even though it was on my radar.

vyvvy (4470) - Florissant, Missouri, USA - FEB 11, 2015
Pours reddish amber with a good sized soapy beige head. The aroma has brown sugar, molasses, horehound candy and the alt slant to the maltiness. It has a medium frothy body with a pretty good amount of carbonation. The taste starts much sharper than the aroma with some metallic/mineral aspects, light spice and weird sharpness. The finish is astringent and offputting. Guess I like this brewery except for their alts.

Magela (72) - Rio de Janeiro, BRAZIL - JAN 12, 2015
Cerveja forte e equilibrada. Aroma lupulado e sabor de caramelo e ameixa. Seu final defumado dá força a cerveja.

Gegen Original verglichen. Ähnliche Farbe. Hoppeditz riecht rauchiger, original eher blumig. Schwache Rezenz. Orig. ist weicher & blumiger.

Bottle from Beer52. Such a complex beer! Has an initial smell I can only compare to well aged iberico ham. Imagine the oily ham, well that’s it. Add fruits and there you have it. Weird I know. On the taste theres initial citrus then dark, winter fruits, which are quite flavoursome. Then there is a caramel taste from the malts. Then nuts, roasted chestnut and hazelnuts, then a nice smoky yet alcoholic finish. Lovely lovely beer!
