Moravius (906) - Beijing, CHINA - JUN 2, 2015
Flasche (30 cl) von Hopfen & Malz, Berlin-Wedding, etwa ein halbes Jahr im heimischen Keller gelagert. - Rotbraun, gut trüb. - In der Nase fülliges dunkles Malz, Karamel, etwas Brombeere, Noten von Lakritz und Zahnkrem. - Antrunk breit dunkelmalzig und malzsüß mit einer herben, kühlen medizinischen Note, die aber gut integriert ist. Kräftiges Röstmalz, Mokka, Brotkruste. Sehr vollmundig, weiches Mundgefühl. Im Abgang nicht zu herbe Malzbittere und eine kühle Kräuternote, die aber die fehlende Hopfenbittere kaum ersetzen kann; daher etwas flach. - Na ja. Bier ohne Hopfen ist ein interessantes Experiment aber selten überzeugend.

330ml bottle from Systembolaget. Dark brown, creamy tan head. Sweet and spicy aroma, red wine, dark dried fruit. Sweet and rich, creamy taste. Syrup, herbs, sweet sticky prunes, raisins, cola. I get the Christmas spirit and think of Glühwein.

MarkoNm (1898) - Novo mesto, SLOVENIA - MAY 18, 2015
Pours a slightly hazy (thanks to the sediments) coppery color, topped with a decent beige colored head. Mild aroam of herbal hops, some spices aslo present with some soury and soapy notes as well. Taste is sweet and biscuity, no real bitterness. Surprisingly creamy and hides alcohol very well. Nice one actually.

olsvammel (4686) - Örebro, SWEDEN - MAY 16, 2015
Bottle from Systembolaget. Spicy smell, hard to tell what spices though. Cinnamon? Sweet malty and spicy taste. The spices isn’t to overpowering and they are on a level so they are hard to separate. It’s not quite as spicy as a christmas beer (the spiced ones). I like it.

Cool_Bond (2085) - KUNG_AV_OL @ Instagram, SWEDEN - MAY 14, 2015
Scent of foam banana, berries and caramel. The taste is spicy, bitter and a little yeast. Okay bitterness that fills the mouth for a long time. No beer that fits me unfortunately. Follow me @ Kung av öl @ Facebook for more pictures and ratings.
