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.

BOTMC Selection November 2008: Poured from the bottle into a pint glass. Pour produced a red-brown body, topped by a medium head of tan foam, which lingered. Aroma is malty, with some caramel notes. Flavor is on the dry side with medium to light mouthfeel. Palate is slightly roasty, though not much else. An adaquate, though not outstanding brew.

has a good malt aroma to it, body seems a bit thin, has a little of a roast malt taste, but not much else.

Another aight offering. Coffee and sweet malts on the nose. Little sweeter in the flavor. Little sweeter yet in the burp. Dunkels is a rare breed, innit?

It pours an almost clear, deep caramel with a creamy khaki head. The aroma is delicately malty, with a sweet caramel character and notes of fresh biscuits. There is also something of a metallic tinge to the aroma, probably because these are twist-off caps and the beer has been slightly oxidized. The taste: remarkably clean. Dry, with touches of caramel malt flavor and toast. Again, there is the slightest bit of oxidation, likely my fault for treating this beer badly and drinking it old. The palate is wonderfully dry, with a smooth but not overpowering carbonation. I could easily have another. By the way, this one has left thick rings and serious honeycomb lacing on my glass.

Bottle courtesy of alexsdad06. Pours brown with a thin white head. Smells of dark fruit, earthy, tea, caramel, molasses. Tastes of tea and some caramel. Decent.

The beer pour a nice looking reddish brown, the malts are nice and slightly robust with a good amount of caramel. hops are almost non existent but the body is medium with a lively feel.

nick76 (4366) - Tampa, Florida, USA - OCT 21, 2008
The aroma has toasty malt, chocolate, and caramel. The appearance is light brown-red with a small head. The flavor is like the aroma but its also grainy and bitter with a burnt bread flavor. The palate is thin. Overall it has a couple of nice qualities like the aroma but it’s not that good.

golubj (1377) - San Mateo, California, USA - OCT 18, 2008
Bottle, received in a trade. Brownish amber pour with almost no head. Aroma is mostly sweet caramel, maybe some sugar. Flavor is the same, a little doughy, lager finish is somewhat crisp.

Felsenbrau (38) - Middletown, Ohio, USA - SEP 27, 2008
UPDATED: FEB 9, 2009 Pours a deep brownish copper with little lacing and quickly-disappearing light tan head. Aroma of caramel, dried fruit, and cooked asparagus. Slightly sweet, flavors of orange, some toasted malt, alcohol. Finishes slightly sour. Rather disappointing, would not buy again. Purchased 355ml bottle, 9/28/08, Kroger Marketplace, Franklin, Ohio. Sampled 9/29/08.

Dark red. No head. Smells of wet cardboard. Dirty, malty taste. strange and cheap tasting.
