Bottled, thanks Sebilinz! Hazy dark brown, minimal head. Concentrated bready malt aroma with some raisin. Sweet with full body and rounded mouthfeel, low carbonation. Rich on malt, raisins and madeira. Caramelly warming finish. Nice!

Bottle pour split. This beer is being used as an introduction to this style. Interesting stuff. Pours super dark and cloudy. Heavy body with no head. Pretty boozy with a ton of dark fruit and spice. I’m new to this style and feel like I might need to warm up to it. This was not bad at all, and look forward to trying it again later down the road.

Vielen Dank an Geiserich für dieses tolle Bier! Ins Glas ergießt sich ein dunkel rötlichbraunes Bier mit geringer bräunlichen Schaumkrone. Der Geruch ist süß malzig, schwerer Körper, alkoholisch, reifes Obst, leicht holzig, Trauben. Geschmack sehr malzig, fruchtig, alkoholisch, holzig, Wein, süß.

Ein netter Bock, der durchaus gefaehrlich ist. Denn der Alkohol ist nicht mal annaehernd im Vordergrund. Dafuer etwas Hopfen mit Zitrusanleihen sowie Heu und ein wenig Gras. Einfach zu trinken und wohl auch um genauso einfach betrunken zu werden.
