COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Honey beer with molasses and oats

Just cause it’s dark and German doesn’t mean it’s an alt. Based on the obscure Kottbusser style of beer, this surprisingly dry beer retains all the aroma and nuance of honey (from bees) and molasses (not from bees) creating a perception of sweetness through cool, controlled fermentation. Because we’re sweet enough damn it.

Grain Bill: Pils, Dark Munich, Chocolate Malt, Wheat Malt, Flaked Oats
Hops: Northern Brewer, Hallertau Hersbrucker, Strisselspalt
Adjunct: Honey, Molasses
13.5 Plato

So this basically tastes like a sweet honey chocolate porter. Just okay. Not something I’m a big fan of.

12 ounce bottle, on Wednesday at Scott’s house, away from weasels .. . Lots chewy oats and molasses .. Mouth is a bit trying and has a lingering finish .. I like the idea but didn’t quite pan out .. . . Cartoon mice are pretty cool!

S_Side_Smitty (572) - Lakeland, Florida, USA - MAY 11, 2015
Pours black with a medium light tan head. Aroma is molasses and faint but deep malts. Taste is very mild. It hints at molasses, maybe tobacco (could be the guy smoking the cigar nearby), and some kind of astringent bite at the finish. Hmm. Don’t know that I’m witnessing much with this one.

BeerBunker (850) - Burbank, Illinois, USA - APR 26, 2015
12oz bottle. Pours dark reddish brown with a small beige head. Aroma is of honey, malt, oat, and molasses. Taste starts off very sweet with lots of honey. And molasses. It gets. Balanced out by a smoky malt backbone, and a big oat flavor. Mouthfeel is very, but still very carbonated. It’s good, but I couldn’t see myself drinking it on the regular.

DuffMan (7624) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - APR 23, 2015
Bottle, shared with Parksy. Dark brown with amber highlights. Sweet dark caramel and honey, tea-like undertones, finishing with a tannic dryness. Nice.

bhensonb (12140) - Woodland, California, USA - APR 8, 2015
Bottle from Best Damn Beer Shop. Pours very dark and ruddy. Very slight head. Aroma suggests treacle with a hint of what might be honey. Med + body. Flavor is dark malt with a treacle note. However, it is quite dry and just mildly bitter. Might have a touch of chocolate in the finisher.
