COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Traditional stone beer brewed with super-heated stones.

Geschaffen durch Feuer und Stein, nach einem der ältesten Brauverfahren.
Brauart/Biergattung: Untergäriges, unfiltriertes Vollbier
Diese wohl weltweit einzigartige, mystische Bierspezialität wird von uns mit Holzfeuer und glühenden Urgesteinen gebraut. Durch den Einsatz teurer Spezialmalze bekommt es seine magisch anmutende Farbe. Naturtrüb, mit frischer Bierhefe und kräftigen Schaum. Malzaromatisch, dezent fruchtig-süßlich sein Aromaprofil. Sein Trunk: Vollmundig, malzig-rund, gepaart mit einer zartbitteren Hopfennote. Aufgemerkt!
Diese sehr süffige Bierspezialität ist kräftig und verführerisch. Möge es nutzen.

McGarnigle (575) - Rochester, New York, USA - APR 27, 2013
UPDATED: JUN 2, 2013 Flip top bottle. The oranger shade of amber. Pour leaves a great head but it doesn’t last. Kind of a sweet beer (caramel from the stones, although I don’t know if they really use stones). Bready malts and some fruit flavors which likely come from the yeast. Light on the hops, but the overall effect isn’t too rich.

fiammanghilla (737) - Genova, ITALY - MAY 4, 2015
Bottiglia 50cl comprata al supermercato e bevuta a casa. Ambrata con schiuma fine e persistente. Piacevole sorpresa. Piuttosto mielosa, esce dell’affumicato e chiude amara ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhold

erickok (4096) - Tours (and Paris), FRANCE - APR 26, 2015
Very cloudy orange body and unstable head. Banana, cereal, light spice, not quite as farmy as I hoped. Nice taste, good body. Had quite high hoped for this one actually, but not quite there. (50cl bottle from Saveur Bière)

Golden colour with firm white head. Aroma of hebs, fruits. Flavour is nothing special, quickly forgettable.

A very unusual drinking experience, not in a bad way. Dark golden color, hoppy sweet taste. Worth trying.

Zlotta (221) - Bonn, GERMANY - MAR 2, 2015
0,5 l bottle from local getränkemarkt, best before 24/6/2015. Clear, golden amber with medium large, foamy, slowly diminishing, tan head. Sweetish, not that intense aroma of caramel, hay, bread and cereals. Sweetish taste of caramel with hints of cereals, bread and hay. Short, medium bitter finish. Thin to medium body, almost watery mouthfeel, average carbonation. Tasty and quaffable but not very interesting. Still nice to see a brewery keeping up that traditional style!

CanCrusher (721) - Ilirska Bistrica, SLOVENIA - FEB 20, 2015
Bottle 0,50L. Gift from my friend Gregor. Cloudy orange colourwith small, frothy, off-white head. Aroma of bread, biscuits, vanilla and caramel. Taste starts moderate bitter, somehow fruity, but very hoppy. Finish is moderate bitter. Medium to full body, oily texture and lively carbonation. Interesting beer, kinda different...

peponi (633) - Krakow, POLAND - JAN 22, 2015
Aroma: caramel, bready, butterscotch. Appearance: hazy amber color, nice beige head. Taste: medium bitterness (herbs), heather notes, dark malts, slightly smoked, roasted. Palate: medium body and high carbonation, roasted and bitter finish. Overall: Strange beer, amber beer, which is really roasted.

TaktikMTL (6317) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 12, 2014
Verre de dégustation, provenant d’une bouteille de 500 ml avec bouchon de céramique, au festival "Montréal Fête la Bavière" (Montréal, QC) au coût de 5.00$. Arôme: Légère odeur de caramel avec une pointe fruitée. Apparence: La couleur est ambrée légèrement voilée. Présence d’un mince col mousseux et d’une fine dentelle sur le verre. Saveur: Goût fruité avec une pointe de caramel. Durée moyenne de l’arrière goût. Palette: Le corps est moyen avec une texture légèrement onctueuse. Faible effervescence en bouche. Arrière goût légèrement fruité. (Rating #5995)

MartinT (8351) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 10, 2014
My Bottom Line:
Loose caramel and bready sugars roam around soft carbonation in this lackadaisical brew.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A ring of foam circles the dull amber.
-Hops are nearly absent.
-This is not süffig enough for my tastes.
-Malt flavors, which are dominant, are not clearly expressed.
-This is an overly simple brew which cannot succeed in seducing through its lack of flavor clarity and poor drinkability.

Bottle.

jmagnus87 (2857) - Rockford, Illinois, USA - NOV 2, 2014
Bottle poured into an altbier glass. Pours a light rust orange with a finger of white head. Aroma of caramel and toffee with grains and pale cereal malts. Taste is light biter, follows aroma. Pretty darn good. Haven’t really dabbled too much in this style but I would be interested in more.
