EdKing (2306) - London, Greater London, - NOV 17, 2012
Bottle from brewery. Colour is a beautiful clear deep dark ruby red with an off white medium foam head. Nose is rich, malty, marmalade, pine kernels, caramel, with some tropical fruit pineapple and mango. Taste is ruby bitter, piney, marmalade, caramel, chocolate, tropical fruit. A lot going on in this. Like an American IPA meets a barley wine.

Werckmeister (1831) - Vienna, AUSTRIA - DEC 11, 2015
0,33l bottle at home from trade with minutemat, big thanks. Bottled 01.09.2015, BB 01.01.2016. quite dark red lightly hazy color, medium big tan head. hmm, lovely nose, nice fruity hops, nice notes of berries, light raspberries, some mango, light citric notes, also a very light sweetness, some pines and a fresh smell of grass. Love the smell. medium body (rather light at first), soft carbonation, slick mouthfeel that gets even a bit creamy after a bit. taste is pretty much in accordance to smell, nice fruits again, very nice notes of tropical fruits, light grapefruit zest, pines and hints of grass, berries again, lightly of raspberries, a bit more sour / acidic more like red currants. finishes light dry and light bitter with some grapefruit zest and some pines. Again very nice beer, Red Ales are a favorite of mine, this one is a great example of the style, would drink again.

juffage (171) - Leeds, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - OCT 20, 2015
