Pours a dark, chestnut colour with a big frothy white head. Smell is a sweet malt with a bit of spice. Taste is balanced, lovely.

Huuug (3) - NETHERLANDS - JUN 28, 2015 does not count
Interesting beer: nothing like anything a tasted before, and a needed to read some ratings before i was able to describe this beer. A taste of red wine & cola & plums & chocolate & rye & cinnamon. A bit like liquors of jagermeister or Becherovka, but as a pleasant beer with the soft, creamy carbonization/texture of other Jopen beers.

Deep ruby, cloudy, lots of mini floaters, creamy medium strong beige head. Aroma is moderate strong candy, caramel malty and loads of spices. Taste is moderate to strong sweet caramel, candy - brown sugar - licorice, loads of spices, a mix of flavors, some cereal, some herbal hoppiness, low bitterness. Medium+ bodied, light carbonation. Didn’t feel any booze. Quite interesting.

Moravius (810) - Berlin, GERMANY - 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.

Turtles (375) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - MAY 23, 2015
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.
