MoritzF (8589) - Bochum, - OCT 20, 2012
(bottle, 33cl) Clear, reddish amber colour with a firm medium-sized tanned foamy head. Moderately piney and slightly citric hoppy aroma with notes of dark malt, caramel and liquorice. Bitter and moderately sweet flavour, medium to full bodied with a soft carbonation. Dark malt character with caramel, liquorice, accompanied by piney and mildly fruity hops; present dark malty sweetness towards the moderately fruity and bitter hoppy finish with warming alcoholic notes. Not the best ASA, but nevertheless a pleasant Ale. 20.X.12

0,33 l bottle. Cola brown beer. The starring taste is the summum of karamel toffee and is really great! Unfortunately after this it turns into a yeasty bitter taste and ends with this. Quite a shame, but the first of every sip is amazing! Yeah yaw!

Karamel en toffee. Niet heel erg bijzonder. Zit ik al aan de vijfenzeventig tekens?

A good quadruple which made me glow after drinking it. Mostly malts, some alcohol but not to abundive. Had a hard time tasting the characteristics of the hops.

Bottle. Mahogany brown body, tall firm head. Aroma has roasty bread and iron. Bready rust water taste with a medium bready roast. Sweet but not sticky. Something feels off about this - the hops and roast don’t work well together, instead they create some kind of rusty flavour. However, this beer doesn’t feel like 10% at all. There’s bitterness but I don’t get the alcohol afterglow at all, so I guess the joke’s on me - I am the Doubting Thomas here.

Really nice nice hazy brown colour. Almost no aroma on this, sadly. Taste is huge with caramel and malt. Alcohol is remarkably well-hidden.

Mooi donker bier met een lichte schuimkraag. Volgens mij is dit een dark IIPA, het heeft de geur van een hoppige IPA met caramel en toffee tonen. Ook de smaak lijkt op een zware IPA. Heerlijk!
