It’s not really a Christmas Tasting in Odense. Amber with a small white head. Aroma of malt, honey, calvados and other fruit. Sweet and alcoholic flavour with brown sugar, vanilla, fruit, calvados. Quite unique dessert beer in eiswein territory

pivnizub (8805) - Bochum, Porúří, GERMANY - JUN 4, 2012
Lahev(thanx to Quack-Duck in advance): Deep to amber coloured , clear, smaller but very stable white head; hybrid nose: aromas of nuts , sherry, wood, vanilla and fruit-schnapps; moderate to solid sweet flavour, medium to full bodied, soft; raisins, Sauternes and a shy honeyish touch in the sweet finish. Výborna těkutina, You never know if it is a wine or a kind of a beer…

MoritzF (8464) - Bochum, GERMANY - JUL 31, 2012
(bottle) Slightly unclear, deep golden to light-amber colour with a blond and short foamy layer. Grainy and nutty notes of barley with an alcoholic touch of an Eau de Vie, Ésprit de Bičre, accompanied by woody hoppy accents. Sweet flavour, surprisingly medium bodied with a creamy carbonation. The taste has lots of a beer-Schnaps hybrid with delicately fruity and honey-like notes and a warming alcoholic strength; moderately sweet, delicately fruity and nuttty finish with pleasantly warming alcoholic notes. Very flavourful hybrid beer. 04.VI.12

Quack-Duck (7794) - Down South, GERMANY - JUN 5, 2012
elegant 0.2 láhev přímo z pivovaru. Hazy brown colour, small beige head. Aroma of dried fruit, grainy malt, chocolate, caramel... Vinous start, intensive but not too sweet malt flavours with dried fruit such as figs, dates and raisins, also freshly brewed black tea, shy but pleasant hoppy finish. Extraordinarily smooth palate. Superb stuff!
