nealblind (957) - Seattle, Alabama, USA - MAY 24, 2013
Dark brown slight orange with big frothy head. Aroma of medicinal grass, raisins spicy flowers/soap. Tastes like hoisin sauce, (browned sugar and acidity), leather. Robust bitterness herbal hops that melds well with roast flavors and alcohol. Not sweet. Dry but not too dry on the palate. Would be excellent with a steak.

Attractive swing top bottle. Found this at a European restaurant and it went well with the food. It was not to impressive on its own, however. Pretty close to an amber in style, with some acidity and smoky malt.

_angst_ (3214) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - FEB 22, 2015
Bottle received in the Euroswap. Thank you Erzengel! Pours clear deep amber with a frothy beige head that leaves some spotty trace on the glass while dissipating. Smell is malty, tiny fruity and earthy with dark bread, crisp bread, hay, moist soil, minerals, plums, lemon peal and hints of banana. Taste is tiny sweet, slightly bitter, malty and earthy with dark bread, caramel, hay, moist soil, minerals, red apples and lemon peal. Mouthfeel is soft, round, slightly astringent and light to medium bodied. Finish is bitter with dark bread, hay, moist soil, minerals and lemon peal. Slight banana and Apple esters I’m not a huge fan off but the dark malts blend nicely with the earthy hops providing a solid enough backbone to make this a pleasant experience.

Baalzevuv (55) - Essen, North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - JAN 12, 2015
Piwko głęboko czerwone, klarowne, piana obfita, trwała, drobnopęcherzykowa. Aromat przede wszystkim słodowy, czuć słód karmelowy, coś tam wychodzi też z drożdży, jest lekko chlebowo. W smaku lekko wodniste, goryczkowe, palone, zmierza w stronę koźlaka. Wysycenie słabe, goryczka zalegająca, na języku szerokie.

magicmn (94) - Moscow, RUSSIA - JAN 10, 2015
Malty bread aroma with weak yeast notes. Taste is dominated by continental hop making this beer very close to a good pilsner a bit. Aftertaste is awesome - herbs, grass, very elegant.

Abijen (1553) - ’s-Hertogenbosch, NETHERLANDS - DEC 28, 2014
Pours a brown clear beer with a good white head. Smells malts, honey and muf. Tastes malts, hops and quite bitter. Average carbo, thin body and a sticky texture.

Bottle (trade with McTapps - thank you, Sabine); pours a cola like brown with a thin tan head; caramel aroma with yeast and a floral hint; taste is caramel with roasted malt and nuts; light dry and bitter finish; good beer
