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.

Pours dark brown with tan head.. Scent is dark fruit, cola. Flavour is Bread, raisin, chocolate, roasted malt... A very tasty, semi-sweet, smooth beer... Definitely one I want to have on hand in the cellar. Simple, but excellent.

Originally reviewed: 6/18/10. 12oz bottle picked up in Findlay, OH. Poured into a mug. Pours a dark sweet tea-looking color with a thin tan head resting on top. Little retention, less lace. Scents of dark fruits, raisins, faint alcohol, and warm pumpernickel. The body is of moderate depth. Carbonation level is decent. Good crisp feel. As far as flavor goes, this is one of the best of the style I’ve ever had. They really nailed it where it counts. Great bready flavors abound, some faint molasses, and plenty of chocolate malts. This reminds me at times of a chocolate drink. Very well-done. I could have another, no problem. Recommend.

Not much head, and a very dark amber color with deep hints of red. Good malty flavor up front that fades quickly.

12 oz bottle via Benny: Pours dark, mostly black with a nice tan head. Taste is complex with toasted malts and a light spruce hop. Palate is smooth, bubbly and very complex for a lager. Very nice offering.

Clear ice tea color with fast disappearing head and no lace. The taste is the surprise: a nicely balanced caramel malt and effervescent bittering in the finish. Smooth drinking, sessionable, altogether a decent brew for a light evenings work.

ADesenberg (561) - Ohio, USA - FEB 4, 2012
Bottle: pours a nice dark brown color with a small off white head. It has toffee, roasty rich and sweet aromas. The flavor is nice and full with lots of brown sugar and roastiness.

Bottle. Beer of the month club. Looks like cocke - almost opaque brown, no head. Nose: mud, carboard, some coffee and roast. Mouth: paper, bland, watery. Dry feeling, light body, short finish. Past its prime for sure.

DSG (5634) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - JAN 16, 2012
Bottle. Beer of the month club. Clear brown with only a tiny bit of beige foam. Nice malty caramelly aroma with nuts and notes of toast and chocolate. Sweet caramelly malt flavor with some toastiness and a slightly drier finish with a bit of roastiness and light herbal hints. Medium-bodied. Not bad.
