Countbeer (4028) - Best of E-Town mit ein Brauhaus, NETHERLANDS - MAR 16, 2014
Bottle: Thanks Douberd: Served in a Chouffe glass: Medium sized creamy foamy head on top of a clear amber colored beer. Aromas of malts, honey, herbs, sweets, some bread, some dried leaves, light toast, some caramel, light chalky and crispy corn and grains. Flavours of herbs, bittters, malts, some wood tones, light caramel, some slight honey hints, bread, some plant bitters, some yeast, some toast, nuts and some dried leaves. Quite crispy actually! Aftertaste is malty, herbal, bitter, bread, leaves, porridge and some wood. Low carbo, creamy mouthfeel, medium bodied and a creamy texture. Even though it passed BB 2 months ago, it’s still very tasty. I kind of like this and much better than many Alt beers out there.

sturmthis (216) - USA - FEB 25, 2014
On draft. opper color. Think off white head. More bitter than the others I tried so far. Didn’t fit my taste as much.

Christian (10778) - Odense, DENMARK - FEB 20, 2014
Odense catch-up from the cellar. Dark amber with a big white head. Malty aroma of biscuit and bread with a herbal hoppy note. Sweetish malty flavour with herbal hop character and a nice bitter finish

bartlebier (1161) - Belchum im Breisgau, GERMANY - FEB 20, 2014
Draught@source, Tour de Rheinländle GC 02/2014. Pours a translucent amber with great adhesive foam. Aroma of fresh pale wood, subdued caramalt. Dry wood palate matches dry caramalt roast, earsmear and some pine hops? Finishes just a tad too early tastewise: full of monomanic character, but not making an immediate impression like Uerige or Schumacher.

rauchbierlover (580) - Berlin, Berlin, GERMANY - FEB 19, 2014
Dark red/brownish body with a nice, long lasting tan head. Aroma is earthy, metallic. Taste is quite bitter, roasted malt notes, caramel, metal again, maybe too much metal. Watery and uselessly overcarbonated. Not the best alt I had so far
