Eine fast schon in Vergessenheit geratene Bierspezialität mit dem einprägsamen Charakter vollreifer Aromen dunkler Beerenfrüchte. Im Tiefschwarz des Bieres wartet ein einzigartig abwechslungsreiches Geschmackserlebnis auf Entdeckung: Schokoladenähnliche Süße wird von schönen Röstmalznoten und vielschichtigen Hopfeneindrücken abgelöst und mündet in einen würzig-herben, wahrhaft imperialen Abgang, dezent begleitet von weinigen Untertönen.

Sebilinz (1265) - Linz, AUSTRIA - APR 25, 2014
Bottle. Black body tan head. Aroma is roasted malts with some dried fruits. Taste is roasted malts with some caramel and some sweetness. Aftertaste is balanced between bitterness and sweetness. Nice one but a little bit thin.

Idiosynkrasie (5335) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - SEP 12, 2013
330ml bottle. Quasi black colour with average, creamy, half-way lasting, minimally lacing, beige head. Minimally vinous aroma, dark malty, chocolately. Taste is dry, roasty dark malty, alcoholic, hints of dark berries, vinous. More heavy than complex.

Geiserich (3865) - Linz, AUSTRIA - JAN 5, 2013
UPDATED: OCT 8, 2014 Bottle after 2 years aging: Black color, low, completely diminishing head. Intensive notes of dark berries, black currants, blackberries, plums, cherries. Dark chocolate, cacao. Flavor is mainly dark chocolate, cacao, fruitiness. Roasted malt, some smokiness. After aging really good.
Original rating: 7/4/6/3/13 Intensive fruity notes of dark berries. Notes of dark chocolate, cacao, roasted malt. Very dark brown to black color, creamy, brownish head. Flavor is also full of fruitiness of berries, also chocolate, alcohol, burnt malt, some smoke, roasty bitter finish. Dry, roasty end. Complex but with a too intrusive alcohol note. Also a bit unbalanced, some more sweetness or aging would maybe help.
