tipsytoad (85) - JERSEY - MAY 8, 2007
From the wood at their tap in Dusseldorf. Quite dark, bitter and fruity, very refreshing. This beer just gets better the more you drink - the bitterness can be quite noticable at first but as you get used to it the palate recognises the other complexities present in the beer. Slightly spicy, malty and roasted. V good.

nearbeer (4776) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - APR 5, 2007
UPDATED: JAN 31, 2009 330 ml, says bottled on 25 11 (maybe 2006?). Hazy brown, dirty copper color with very small head that has nice staying power. Aroma is raisins, hopped chocolate, pears and apples. Initial flavor is full and similar to aroma, but surprisingly dry and bitterish-cardboard finish, unlike the aroma leads you to believe. Lots of hops, but more flavor than your typical APA or IPA. Pretty good for 4.5% abv (that’s what the bottle says).

Fukito (1016) - Santiago, CHILE - MAR 31, 2007
Tap at Uerige, march 07. Beatifull, shinny, clear copper color with a nice, creamy and compact white head that lasts the whole half pint. Aroma is of dried fruits, some caramel and a slight toasted touch. Very nice. Tastes fruity, toasty, with a nice malt backbone that supports the spicy hops prescence upfront. Bittersweet, exquisite equilibrium. Mild. MF is medium, dry, bright, lingering aftertaste and vastly drinkable and moreish. Excellent complex and umpretentious beer, that you will want to drink copious amounts of.

MadIndian (2720) - Levittown, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 31, 2007
Bottle for Issac Newtons. Nice flip top bottle !!! Murky Copper pour with moderate head. I did not notice much of an aroma a mild hoppiness and mild sweetness that was it. The taste was odd Pepper (like table pepper not hot pepper) Mild malty taste blended rather well. This was a good odd beer.

Hoser (372) - Cowtown, Alberta, CANADA - MAR 10, 2007
UPDATED: OCT 9, 2007 The best alt I have ever had peppery, malty and incredible. Page 466 of Michael Jackson’s Great Beer Guide and only 231 of his 500 Classic Brews to go.

omhper (22994) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - MAR 10, 2007
UPDATED: NOV 8, 2011 Cask at the brewpub. Copper colour, firm creamy head. Dry with distinct grassy hoppiness and clean straight forward malt profile. Full of life and nuances. Lingering, hoppy very bitter finish.

valpoaj (726) - Valparaiso, Indiana, USA - MAR 7, 2007
Deep mahoghany color with a slowly dissolving thin head. Very hoppy flavor hits immediately and is accentuated by roasted malt with a somewhat bitter aftertaste. Although this was a pretty good beer, it didn’t have the distinct appeal of the Uerige Sticke or Doppelsticke...probably won’t seek this one out again in the near future...

kwoeltje (2233) - Manchester, Missouri, USA - FEB 27, 2007
(bottle) A gush of malt aroma as the top is opened. Dark amber with white head. Flavor is malt and hops, more on the sweet side.

KingpinIPA (841) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - FEB 25, 2007
Dark amber color with tiny little partials floating around. Smell of malt, minor citrus, caramel, root beer,yeast and hops. Tastes of hops, roasted malt, caramel, candy, yeast, ginger and a rubber bitterness at the end. A fine beer .

shalloWMeans (169) - Independence, Kentucky, USA - FEB 19, 2007
UPDATED: OCT 25, 2007 This is a beautiful beer, it’s a nice deep burnt amber color, with a medium white head and a nice brown haziness to it. The smell is of yeast, spice, and roast malt. The taste is VERY roasted, caramel, spice, with remote sherry notes. Quite distinct. Anyways, the mouthfeel is silky, smooth and creamy. It is wonderful brew, similar to a doppelbock, but also unlike anything i’ve tasted. I usually come up with one phrase to really describe a beer, and for this one it would be: Roast malt to the extreme!
