3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Appearance is clear gold, a sort of maple leaf turned early. Bottle hissed with minor carbonation and indeed bubbles are few but steady, leading only to a thin white halo around the top of the glass.
The smell is of alcohol, malt, and sweet iced tea with mint.
Mouth-feel is dense, like caramel syrup. But the carbonation regains life on the tongue, forcing any excessive sweetness away from the tongue and bringing forth a mellow bitterness. This is a complex taste that lingers and coats the back of the throat, warming yourself as it flows down. Internally this is a lively beverage that awakens the intestines, perhaps best suitable as a digestive following a heavy, fall meal. Me thinks it would serve well after dark meat, like lamb or veal. As the temperature drops the malty sweetness becomes more dominant; notice the sugar coat on the lips. Served in a Samichlaus tulip.

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 !

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.
