BlackHaddock (4435) - Shropshire, - NOV 16, 2012
Tall flip-top bottle: best before 15 Dec 2012. Poured (three times) into one of my Hannen Alt glasses @ home during a random tasting evening on 16 Nov 2012. Looks reminded me of a cola with a head that stayed longer than normal: certainly that colour anyway. Poor nose: just weak malt notes and an earthy whiff. The taste is also on the weak side: mildly malty but no depth or ’umph’ to the brew at all, a big disappointment to be honest. Maybe it’s better fresh or on-tap, but I doubt it. The beer did seem to grow on me a little as I got used to its flavours, there was some bitterness to be found along with those malts mentioned earlier but it still didn’t cut the mustard as a good Alt in my eyes.

Cunningham (5154) - Halden, NORWAY - FEB 1, 2015
Deep nutty color with a big tan head. Nice lacing. Malty, nutty and mild herbal aroma. Medium body. Moderate sweet and an ok bitterness. Herbal, rich caramel malty, fruity and herbal. Quite ok beer that was destroyed by a really heavy carbonation.

jfb (4345) - Freising, GERMANY - DEC 28, 2014
(draught) clear deep ruby colour with a frothy beige head. aroma of heavy toffee and roasted malts, slightly buttery, with a hint of red grapes and liquorice. flavour is mostly the same, heavy toffee and raisins, with some big notes of herbal hops, more toasted malts, some sugar icing and a light-bitter finish. medium-bodied with average carbonation.

lusikka (6738) - Tampere, FINLAND - DEC 26, 2014
Draught @ Tap-House, Munich. Pours a dark brown colour with a small thick foamy head. Aroma of dark berries, mild sourness and toasted malts. Flavour of sweet malts, pungent grassy bitterness, berries and some earthiness. Light bodied and quite high carbonation. Decent. Not at it’s best perhaps.

Beerhunter111 (9261) - Hasborn, GERMANY - DEC 7, 2014
Ins Glas ergießt sich ein klares dunkel bernsteinfarbenes Bier mit ordentlicher leicht beigen Schaumkrone. Geruch angenehm röstmalzig, Karamell, hopfig, würzig. Geschmack schokoladig mit ausgeprägter Hopfennote, grasig, minimal metallisch, im Mittelteil reife Früchte, Karamell, hopfig würzig im Abgang, lecker!

On tap at Kurzer. Brown pour with creamy dense head. Aroma is banana, caramel and infection. Taste is caramel sweetness and an off tartness. Horrible beer, I didn’t even finish my small glass.
