BlackHaddock (3515) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - APR 18, 2012
July 2010: 500ml Brown bottle obtained from ’Beers of Europe’ here in the UK. The beer was poured into pint sleeve glass. Impressive looking beer, deep, dark ruby red in colour, clear and clean. The cream coloured head that sat on top managed to stay for most of the tasting, but left no lacing on the glass. Very little, if any aroma, I do struggle with most lager/pilsner based beers to find any real smell on most occasions. There were hints of malts and traces of molasses if I put my nose into the glass as the beer warmed, but initially there seemed to be nothing. The taste was sharp, crisp and more malt than hop, fairly well carbonated and ’alive’ with an almost fizzy mouthfeel. Too be fair, it is one of the better beers of this style I’ve had, the alcohol content helping to appease me and giving it a bit of body and depth: others within this style have failed to do that.

Marko (3896) - Split / Zagreb, CROATIA - APR 17, 2012
Ogi’s. Lovely amber-red body with a big off white head - nice. Nicely grainy coffee-like nose, very light raisins. Light raisiny grainy taste, sweetish, slightly boring, not bad. Not much bitterness, very light acidity and dog food. Meh. Better than the Gold.

JanLaursen (3035) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - APR 9, 2012
Bottle 50 cl. Clear red brown with a small tan head. Aroma of burned caramel and bread. Flavor is heavy sweet with roasted malts and caramel and subdued bitterness. Too sweet for my palate.

ThirstyBird (1488) - Düsseldorf, GERMANY - APR 8, 2012
Pours a clear dark brown some red highlights. Nice dense tan head that goes to a thick cap. Smells of bread, sweet roasted malt, mild molasses. Taste is similar to nose finishing rather dry and roasty. Nice carbonation, medium body. Pretty nice overall.

EithCubes (4757) - New Jersey, USA - MAR 31, 2012
Bottle by 13.10.12. Very sweet nose, dark with some roast malt and nuts. Dark red body with a fizzy tan head. Crisp medium body softens and dulls up, caramel and woody, earthy malt with light nuts and bark. Semi-sweet with basically no hops or bitterness. Pleasant.

Grima (2083) - Saarburg, Rhineland-Palatinate, GERMANY - FEB 7, 2012
Sorry for the german rating, but this is a lousy rating from my "newbie" time (2007-2009), and it’s not worth of being translated. I just added it for the statistics, and to complete my backlog!
Im Glas steht ein herrliches dunkelrotes Bier mit schöner feiner Schaumkrone. Notizen: Der Antrunk ist fein röstmalzig, der Nachgeschmack kommt leicht malzig-süßlich daher. Ein super Dunkles, das jedoch etwas süffiger sein könnte...

TEJA (1264) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - FEB 1, 2012
Bottle from TW, thanks. Clear brown color and fine head. Nice mild malt taste with tiny sweetness and small but balanced bitterness. Big drinkabillity.

POLK (2160) - Hørning, DENMARK - JAN 25, 2012
Dark amber color with small beige head. Sweet roasted flavor with caramel. Boring German attempts to be an abbey beer.

Ibrew2or3 (6783) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - NOV 1, 2011
Classic German style 50cl bottle pours clear amber with deep ruby hues and thin off white head. The aroma has nice caramel candy notes mixing with a touch of scorched toffee, more caramel candy and faint sweet dark fruity esters. The taste begins with both spicy hops and some caramel malts and caramel candy. To midway it gets a bit earthy and yeasty as well as a mild level of dark fruity esters. Into the finish the caramel candy like note comes forward and takes this into the after taste. Solid brew with a few odd notes here and there.
