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.

Appearance- Beer pours dark brown in color with a reddish tint, with a small lacing of caramel colored. Beer is clear and lacing clings to the sides of the glass. Head dies down to a murk across the top at the end of the pour. Smell- Light and dark malts upfront, perfect scent on a standard dunkel. I don’t know about double dark, but dunkel is very correct here. A bit of caramel on the aroma as well. Hops are noble and subtle. Taste- Rich, smooth and crisp. Some nuttiness, caramel, earthly malts, and ample sweetness. The malt here is the big winner with light fruits, dates, figs, and a hint of grape. A little bit of hop bitterness at the end to balance it out Mouthfeel- Light, creamy, medium high in carbonation, and medium light bodied. This beer looks heavy and smells like it should be heavy and malty, but it was actually light and refreshing, which was a great surprise. Drinkability- Excellent representation of a Munich dunkel style.

Caramel malt and sugar sweetness in aroma but doesn’t come through well in taste. Expected a better mouth feel for the style, why is this so carbonated? As much or more so than a soda.

Beer of month club offering. Pours a transparent reddish brown with no head - kinda looks like ice tea. Aroma of sweet malt. Taste is of caramel and malt. It's not very exciting, but it is fine. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Dark Carmel taste thin on tongue. Malt forward and strong. Thin fading head. Almost like a root beer float. Light Carmel aroma. Average in general ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Dark amber beer with a disappearing off white head. Nose of brown sugar and grain tea with some acetate. Brown sugar sweetness with malt, toasted English muffin and a sweet tea finish. OK beer.

12 oz undated bottle served in a Belgian snifter. A: clear, dark brown with a small but durable head. Some lacing. Aroma: very sweet light and medium roasted malts. Taste; still sweet, but thankfully not as sweet as the aroma. Rather simple and very malt dominant. Feel: smooth; medium-light body seems a bit thin; medium-light carbonation. O: a decent Tmavy.
