Jimthechap (2064) - Christchurch, - OCT 10, 2012
Golden colour with coarsish carbonation and a white head that left some lace on the side of the glass. The aroma is an interesting one with classic golden Germanic malts to the fore, some toffee and a bit of a signature ’there’s a fair amount of alcohol here John, I hope you haven’t got much planned for this afternoon’. I say that, but it could be easily overlooked. There’s also some dried orchard fruit aroma as well. Initially bubbly and then the full bodied juicy whack that also brings out caramel and toffee. It is unctuous without being over-sweet. The finish is one that gives a nod to highish alcohols and fruity esters that dries and leaves you with orange oil and mace.

ALIBALI (277) - Kiel, Schleswig-Holstein, GERMANY - MAY 24, 2016
Schwer, voller Süße. Läßt an Marzipan denken. Belgisch!? Weizenbock!? Weinlastig!? Wahrscheinlich von jedem ein bisschen, wobei es irgendwie nicht wirklich komplex ist, sondern die Süße leider zu dominant. Autoverköstigung mit Enti & Micha nach der Muli Show in Berlin. Flasche (0,33l/ca.2-3 Euro) von Karstadt in Bremen.

A lot to love here, as a Samischlaus lover, i hadn’t tried this one, and wasn’t aware it was from the same brewery. If you ever tried Samischlaus, well, there’s a lot of similarity of course (It works the same on the other way). Strong caramel aroma for a quite heavy taste overall, everything I like, and i’ve been very pleased. Best served with some dry sausage to come along of course. APPROVED BY TAVERNY’S BLACK METAL CREW !

Moretum (69) - Vienna, AUSTRIA, AUSTRIA - APR 8, 2016
Bottle, Billa in Vienna. Clear, amber colour with a minimal head. Aroma is alcohol, dried fruits and caramel. Sweet, alcoholic taste (reminds me of liquor) with caramel and dried fruits; of course it´s heavy, but it´s not very complex at all. You can buy it in many supermarkets in Austria.
