PotjeBier (1762) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - DEC 15, 2013
33 cl bottle thanks to Santa. 6%, Herfstbockbier, 2013 issue. Very dark color, almost opaque. Big beige rocky head with good retention and lacing. Aromas of sweet malts, red fruit, brown sugar. Additionally some roast retronasal. Flavor is moderate sweet, fruity (sweet & sour). Body is on the thin side, could have used a bit more. Flavor lingers, but no new flavors. OK example of the style. Good with rode kool & appel.

Countbeer (4672) - Best of E-Town mit ein Brauhaus, NETHERLANDS - DEC 25, 2012
Stone bottle: Big creamy beige head which disappears slowly. The beer has a dark red dark ruby brown color and top of all its hazy too. Smell barley malts, caramel, hint of sour/sauerkraut, hint of autumnal herbs, dust, yeast, berries, cheese and grains. Taste is pretty nice with a tiny sour tint: barley malts, caramel, berries, bitter, hint of sour, hint of yeast, some darker fruits and sweets. Aftertaste is a mix of bitter, malts, berries, hints of sour, herbs, grains and yeast. Low carbo, soft light watery mouthfeel, medium body and a texture between watery and creamy. That sour touch, berries, very pleasent, though the body is a bit too medium...
