1 pint bottle.(shown in foto) Phenominal surprise. I picked this up tonight and wasnt expecting much. Boy was I surprised! Poured very dark, rich brown colour. Smell is of roasted malt and kiln. Hints of chocolates, clove, and fruit (prune, raisin) thats well balanced and excellently represented. Man, I am going to stock this. Has a slight watery hint as you take bigger sips. Great aftertaste. very rich and smooth. I regret not picking up the rest of the stock, or at least the other beers brewed by this company. They are definately onto something!!!

UPDATED: OCT 29, 2006 Plum color nicely matches the strong plum aroma. Bubbly head quickly disipates. Sweet start, with hints of caramel and banana. Leaves a whiskey/bourbon aftertaste.

02/01/2005. Purchased at New World, Thorndon. From a 500ml bottle into a tulip shaped beer glass. Pours a deep and murky reddish brown with a little effervescent head that dies away. Aroma is superb - cinnamon and cloves, wheat, ripe banana and whiskey. Dominant flavours are roasted caramel (tending to burnt) and liqourice, which lingers on the tongue after swallowing and then fades to a cognac. An after dinner sipper, 500ml is best shared with a friend.

Nice wheat aroma with hints of apple juice and spice. Dark brown/red color with a huge slow moving head. Rich flavor of wheat and spice. Apple flavor present. Alcohol is present in the flavor, but not too much.

Served from the 500ml Euro-stlye brown bottle. In appearance this a slightly hazy,yet glowing brown colour. Massive frothy white head, furious carbonation in the glass. A very rich creamy ,spicy wheat aroma, banana and caramel aromas too. The flavour is like all the classic German "hefes",bananas ,spices etc but with a nice touch of a dark chocolate,caramel background.A good alcohol taste at the end. A well carbonated mouthfeel,but it feels good on the tongue. The finish is semi-dry, a noticable alcoholic presence in the throat..warming., A very well crafted beer, I liked it .But i doubt i could manage more than one 500ml in a sitting. Yet I will certainlly pick it up again.

Stew41 (1821) - Woodend, AUSTRALIA - DEC 28, 2004
Pours very dark brown tending to black - slightly murky. Nice foamy head retains good form. Nose is a little shy, faint touches of cloves. Flaours of sweet cloves and some alcohol sweetness drive the palate. Nice spicy note in the back palate. Very complete mouthfeel, good length and never get flabby or too sweet. Alcohol is in excellent check. All in all a good beer showing reasonable complexity.

UPDATED: JAN 13, 2007 Re-rate. OK, I get it now. Tons of red grape flavor & aroma. Smooth creamy palate and a great finish that keeps me taking sips way to fast. This’ll be a staple in the rotationfrom here on out.

Bit of a stale aroma, bock-like I suppose, but aside from that, this beer is wonderful to this guy. Full and smooth, yet without the heavy sweet malt infusion that dominates american bock beers
