bartlebier (1196) - Belchum im Breisgau, - JAN 29, 2013
50cl bottle, with helpful flip-top bottle (thankfully). Unique Doppelbock that pours a solid reddish-brown with a good head. Immediate fumes of its powers are released, some spice, nut not much else in the way of aroma. Medium mouthfeel, dry and slightly sticky palate. Taste is an interesting blend of typical and idiosyncratic Doppelbock notes: roasted malts, marzipan, caramelised fruit, wayward esters, decent hop bitterness somewhere in the mix. Somewhat reminiscent of Gulden Draak, with drier malts and more hops. The alcoholic burn is unmistakebly there though, and at 8.1% I found this quite a heady sipper, not smooth drinking at all (compared to some 9-10 ABV trappists and IPAs) - which is where the helpful flip-top comes in handy. - May have to revisit later in the season.

UPDATED: APR 21, 2014 Really red in color with beige and not very lasting head. In aroma some matynes and cherries. Quite sweet in taste with slight hint of alcohol and only slight earthy hopps taste. Quite nice beer

gunser (55) - HUNGARY - FEB 23, 2014
Sötétnarancsos-vöröses szín. Szép és méretes világosbarna hab, fátyolként végig kitart. Illata édes, cukros, aszaltgyümölcsös (mazsola), kicsit alkoholos, intenzív. Testes sör, állaga szirupos. Íze cukrosan édes, lágyan karamelles, aszaltgyümölcsös ( mazsola, füge). Utóíze jól kiegyensúlyozza a sör édességét. Intenzíven és bizsergrtően keserű, hosszan cseng le, kevés alkoholos melegséggel.

Leighton (9883) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 20, 2014
Bottle on the train from Freising to Regensburg, Bamberg post Christmas jolly day 1. Pours clear, bright orange-gold with a creamy, off-white head. Nice stuff with rich toffee, winter spices, fruit cake, caramel and light, dried fruits. Medium to full bodied with fine carbonation. Lightly warming on the finish with further dried fruits, faint spices, ripe and liquidized fruits. Good one.

Bamberg Bash, Day 1. Train bottle swig. Hazy deep amber beer, good cream coloured head. Palate is softish and semi dry. Rich malt, unsweet toffee. Little spice and a whisper of bubblegum. Dry finish. Tasty.
