4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
0,33 l bottle, bought in Amsterdam.
Clear mahagony colored ale with a medium creamy tan head that melts down to a fine lacing one. Intensive herbal aroma with fruity alcohol, cherries, raisins, liqueric, herbs like thyme, cocoa and cinnamon, nutmeg. Oh my god, complex aroma - what about the flavor? Medium, easier bodied than expected. Herbal character with a caramel-toasted cocoa some coffee in the background, spicies. Integrated chaos in the flavor. Cherries and tobacco, earth and herbs, thyme again with some candy sugar. Herbal aftertaste. Very complex, fantastic!

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Dunkelbraunes Bier mit ordentlich Schaum dank viel CO2. Erstaunlich frischer Antrunk trotz des hohen Alkgehalts. Geschmacklich wie im Aroma hefig-säuerlich, leicht rezent, recht langweilig. Wärmend im Abgang durch den Alkohol. Gut trinkbar, aber insgesamt zu sehr Mainstream. Boring!

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Served cold at the brewery :( Pours a dark brown with a thin tan head that dies almost instantly. The nose is sweet with toffee and caramel notes, dried fruit aromas of prune and raisin about. A bit effervescent on the first sip with a first impression of a syrupy and rich brew. Rich malt profile with a bit of candy sugar and prune notes. Not overly robust but has a nice boozy accent. A good quad!

Bottle in Santa Barbara shared w/ my Dad. Dark pour with a nice head, full-bodied with the expected dark fruits and brown sugar. Wrong beer for a hot summer’s day but that’s how my old man rolls. None of this artisan fruit berlinerweisse 3.7% wussy shit for him.

March 13, 2013 - bottle from Randalls. Dark brown pour with big head that lasted and lacing. Aroma was dark fruit, yeast, spice and sweet malt. Wow super sweet sugary start, then gets spicy, moves into the dark fruit and finishes with some dry alcohol. This is not subtle, the flavors are in your face.

Bottle shared at the May Santa Cruz tasting. Pours a dark cola color with a poofy tan head. Aromas of yeasty brown bread, candi sugar, vanilla, alcohol. Flavors of dark and red fruits with coriander, fruitcake, raisin, vanilla, licorice, and booze. A bit too hot and perfumey on the palate at 11 percent.
