COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Moerlein Barbarossa is slow-aged with a deep reddish brown color and a malt aroma derived from Munich dark malt. The balanced finish invites a toast to the return of a legend.

Bright dark amber w/ off white head collapse quickly to white ring. Nose bread, caramel, w/ slight chocolate note. Co2 level keeps light initially with dark bread crust, caramel ,moderately sweet finish and traceable hint of spice from hops. Medium body. A slightly above par dark lager.

Bottle. Pours a dark amber hue with small head that deminished quickly. Overly carbonated but otherwise a nice malty sweetness. Finally something good from cincy.

Smooth and delightful. rich with a wonderful lingering aftertaste. The flavor is enhanced as the beer warms up a bit. I plan to have this beer again, directly off the storage shelf at 55~60 degrees in the next few days!

12oz bottle purchased at Kroger on Polaris. Pours a clear reddish copper with a medium tan head. Malty aroma with sweet caramel, some roast and bread. Malty and caramelly flavor with some roast before a light finish.

Draft to taster. Looks solid; a transparent orangish-brown with off-white lacing. Smells and tastes semi-sweet and malty with notes of caramel. Good on the palate. A solid example of the style.

monk191 (1179) - California, USA - JAN 23, 2013
A good, but not one of the best, dark lagers. Smells of coffee, cherries and strawberries. Pours a beautiful maroon, with a tan head. Taste is fruity and malty, lots of cherries, with a slightly weird lingering aftertaste. Had in the bottle from beer of the month. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

ContemplateBeer (1620) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - JAN 11, 2013
Aroma of caramel, pumpernickel, slight toast and little chocolate. Appearance is deep, rusty red brown with slightly sticky tan head. The flavor was mostly caramel and bread up front; the finish was moderately dry. Palate was medium, creamy and soft. Another solid Moerlein beer in the German tradition.

pours a deep brown with ruby edges. Sweet caramel and roasted malt dominate the aroma. Smooth and creamy, with caramel, roasted malt, and a bit of bittersweet chocolate. Perhaps a touch of smoke, too, but definitely not enough to make this a Schwarzbier. Tasty and balanced, and with just 5% ABV, you can enjoy Barabarossa all day
