Moravius (499) - Berlin, GERMANY - SEP 23, 2014
Flasche von Hopfen & Malz, Berlin-Wedding. - Mattes Rotbraun, trüb; sahniger Schaum. - In der Nase schwache Frucht (ist das Erdbeere?), leichtes Röstmalz und herber Hopfen. - Anfangs schlank karamelmalzig mit Röstnoten, gefolgt von einer zarten fruchtig-säuerlichen Note, die sogleich in eine wuchtige, lang anhaltende Bittere von Röstmalz und Hopfen übergeht. Mild rezent, schlank. Im trockenen Abgang regiert wuchtige, erdige Hopfenbittere. Sehr langer, kräftig bitterer Nachtrunk mit Anklängen von Zitronenschale. - Wird gelegentlich als das bitterste deutsche Bier bezeichnet, aber das dürfte angesichts der vielen IPAs von sog. „Craft“-Brauereien überholt sein. Nicht überholt, vielleicht sogar uneinholbar ist die starke Kombination von Karamel- und Röstmalz, staubtrockener Herbe und der großzügigen Dosis Aromahopfen, die dieses Bier zu einem Klassiker macht. Einzigartig!

slowrunner77 (3443) - Reno, Nevada, USA - SEP 12, 2014
"Slightly lighter and slightly sweeter and prunier than the sticker. Almost as good, but leaves juuuust a bit less of an impression as the layers of malt complexity are ever so slightly replaced with more floral (but still light) hoppiness."

Pours dark copper colored with high creamy head. Smell has roasted malts, nuts and floral hops. Starts very malty-bitter, with lots of caramel, roasted malts and some nutty nuances. Middle part has bitter hop notes as well as roasted malts and caramel. Goes into a bitter hoppy and caramelly finish with nutty roasted malt notes.
