Aroma is nutty and sweet, with notes of honey, melon, caramel, dried fruits and chestnuts. Taste is again medium sweet, bready and powdery, with notes of chestnut flour, caramel, honey, ripe melon. Medium bodied with soft carbonation. Overall, ok

bartlebier (1981) - Belchum im Breisgau, GERMANY - DEC 17, 2014
33cl bottle bb01/2015 shared by bastarda 11/14. Honeycoated almonds and roasted maroni in the aroma are subdued by sawdust flour. Repeat in taste: a chestnut peel astringency joins the forward caramels, dusted by mealy-mouthed maroni powder. Off-balance dubbel with a few interesting autumn flavour pockets.

Transparent amber color with a fine tan head. Nice lacing. Fruity, toffee and some banana aroma. Ok body and a mild round sweetness. A bit oily. Moderate bitterness. Fruity, some yeast, toffee and mild banana in the flavor. Nice dubbel.

Hugi (413) - Waldkirch, GERMANY - NOV 9, 2014
Courtesy of bastarda. Drank this beer with Bierle and bartlebier. Brown, medium head, a bit hazy. Malty, raisins, honey, sweet, esters. Similar taste with some hints of berries and dry fruits. Full body, fruity-medium bitter finish.

bastarda (116) - Freiburg, GERMANY - NOV 6, 2014
shared with Bierle, bartlebier and Hugi. Fusel-nose, once used to the fusel, subtler notes of dried pears, yellow dried fruits in general, some mirabelle compote. As almost expected, this tastes too sweet, like some yeast having gone to sleep too early, and combined with that harsh and burnt plastic aspects this is a bit too homebrewy, underdefined and that blackthorn aftertaste just adds to this.
