Brown-black appearance, really no head. Plums, raisins, alcohol, a bit smoke in the aroma. Strawberry-jam. Flavor is liquorice, blackberry, raisins, smoke, alcohol. Bitter finish and comfortable alcohol-burn. Aftertaste of ash. Palate is thick and soft with minimal carbonation.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
333 fliptop from Duty Free shop leaving Frankfurt airport. Label indicates 2010 origin. Pours a very dark coppery brown with no head. Aroma of very dark wheat with hints of dark fruit. Full bodied. Flavor is red berry, dark fruit, dark wheat, dark, dark, dark. Flavors are so strong that heat is barely noticeable. Amazing drink. It’s quite malty, not dry, but not all that sweet - sugary - but not sweet. Passing strange. This is a really good drink - but should probably be reserved for an evening. My bad.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Clear brown colour, off-white dissipating head. Aroma of red fruits, banana, over-ripe banana, leaves. Very sweet flavour, red fruits, alcohol, wheat and raisins. Finish banana drink and alcohol. Not actually bad, but wouldn’t want to drink a whole bottle of this.
(From 33cL swingtop bottle @ joes’ place. Thanks for sharing Joris!)

330 ml bottle. BB 15/5/15. From Germany. Courtesy of Brandman.
Brown Coke like colour with a tiny head.
Smoke and malt in a strong aroma.
Sweetness, canned meat, smoke and cough syrup in the flavour. Quite unpleasant. Still better than I expected.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Not much to this beer except for the ABV. Pours dark reddish brown, almost no head, aroma of raisins and dried fruit, the alcohol is even apparent in the nose. Taste is sweet, prunes, dark chocolate, rye bread. Slight lingering sweetness, and evident alcohol burn. Not as bad as I was prepared for....

Bottle. Tar, liquorice, cough syrup. Not much of a wheat feel here. A bit strange, but not unpleasant.
