Det här var riktigt bra, alltså riktigt jäkla bra! Balansen och kroppen var fulländad, aromen var ljuvlig och införlivades nästan i smaken med toner av druva, lakrits och äpple. Slutsats: mmm, gott!

Bottle, thnx to McTapps! Cheers! Pours a very dark brown beer with a small, off white head on top that settles into a ring around the rim and leaves decent lacing. Aroma of red fruits, slight roastiness, caramel and a bit of booze. Flavor is very sweet and malty. Big caramel in the base, accompanied by a fruity presence as well. Quite alcoholic in the finish. Balance is a bit off, too sweet, but it offers a good complexity overall. Very nice beer.

First sampled in Philly, I had hoped to drink this in its native environment at the Uerige keller in Düsseldorf. Maybe on my next trip. Just as glorious as expected, dark and caramelly, slightly sweet with a hint at the alcohol.. This one is a treat all the way around. "old beer" my ass, this is just as relevant today. Try one if you have the chance, this is what altbier is all about.

330ml bottle @ PBF 2013
Pours dark brown with a small head. Aroma of sweet malty notes, caramel, hops, nuts, hints of earthy notes. Taste is sweet, malty, caramely and hoppy with hints of grain and syrup. Finish is malty, bitter and dry with some sweetness, syrup and grainy notes. Quite well balanced, although a bit too sweet for my taste.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from systembolaget. Vanilla and toffee aromas, also a bit vineous aroma. Tastes likes toffee with black pepper. There is some bitterness farback in the mouth accompined with a sweetness. The sweetness and bitterness goes well hand in hand in this beer. The finish is long and malty. Might be a tad overcarbonated. There are also some alcohol in the taste but not on a level where it bothers.
Conclusion: All in all an intresting beer, which hopefully give insperation to others to brew imperial alt / German barley wine

Pours dark dark amber with medium off white head
Nice aromas of caramel malts, figs, dades, cherries, butterscotch
Taste has all the nice features of a Barley Wine but with very malty ending. I’ts really nice boozy, warming and well balanced!
