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.

Bottle. Nose has dark malts, light nuts, and that elusive sweaty socks / spaghetti sauce touch. A little sweetness. Pours red with amber hues and steady carbonation, creamy beige head. Taste is loaded with rich malt, smooth nuts and light toffee and dark caramel and fig, just a touch of earth and dark fruit, but not anything more than a bg accent. Medium-light body, smooth and soft, fun to rub around, with a little body from the lasting carbonation. Some brown sugar but it’s light, and some even lighter tang. The mouthfeel is super pleasurable, just creamy and seemingly spreadable on a baguette. Good one.

Red brown, weak head. Nose of nutty malt and roast. Flavor follows suit. Overcarbonated and generally thin and lacking in any real character.

Overall a good balance of hops and malts. Nice color. Better on tap than in a bottle.

Onslow (1210) - Kalamazoo, Michigan, USA - OCT 9, 2009
The last six pack from my August trip to Cincinnati. Deep brown clear brew with a thin, off white head. Active carbonation. Aroma dominated by malt and caramel. Flavor is sweet malt at the start but with a finish nicely balanced with subdued hops. Rather simple in flavor and character, but what’s in there is quite good.

Pours a clear dark brown with a thin tan head that floats on top of it. The nose is nutty with hints of almond and brown sugar. As you sip on it you can really taste the toasted malt and almond. there is some hop flavor but no big initial bite or any lasting tang. Overall the carbonation is alright and has a refreshing flavor but it is a bit watery.

Ferociousaurus (37) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - JUL 18, 2009
Dark brown color but a little lighter than I expected. Good head with some lacing. Strong malty, syrupy aroma. Nutty, very sweet malty taste. A little watery. Decent, but forgettable.

Rynoplasty (700) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - JUL 6, 2009
Pours amber brown with a small tan head. Aroma is sweet caramel malt. Flavor is bready, doughy sweet caramel. Not bad.

phaleslu (6807) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUN 30, 2009
Draft, once at Hyde Park Blast and once during Prohibition Resistance Tour in Cincinnati. Pours brown with short foamy off-white head. Nutty, malty, slightly syrupy.

Aurelius (4365) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - JUN 24, 2009
Nice, oaty/cereal malt aroma with dark syrup. Smells like fresh pumpernickel - the aroma is the strong suit for the beer. Clear, medium walnut brown. Good label. Sweet and bocky, with strong raisin/prune flavors. The beer is a little swayback - prominent flavors on the initial swig and the finish, but then a little saggy and watery in the middle. Medium light body, with some chalkiness in the mouthfeel. A decent session brew, an excellent jambalaya or stew base, a good marinade candidate, and an excellent value at $3.99/6 on closeout.
