33cL bottle. Brown, dark copper color with some reddish tones and clear. Nice head. Malty aroma with some alcohol apparent, dark caramel, too. Spicy, caramel flavor with malt and some alcohol. A good amount of sweetness is coming through. The spicyness has some black pepper and some earthy notes like heather maybe, nutmeg, too. The sweetness balances the hops and alcohol very well. The hop/malt aftertaste is incredible. What a beer. Dusseldorf here I come!

whaleman (2178) - North Wales, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 4, 2005
Clear amber body with mild carbonation and a small, silky beige head. Sweet malty nose with elements of maple syrup, molasses, warm toasted bread, woody hops, mild spice, and a touch of currants. Aroma suggests a barley wine. Warm, nutty flavor of toasted grain, cinnamon stick, and bourbon. Some brown sugar sweetness is balanced by firm, lingering, woody bitterness. Very pleasant and belly warming.

Slick (1969) - Thief River Falls, Minnesota, USA - NOV 30, 2005
Dark amber color,large off white head that had a long hang time then faded slowly to a nice lace.The aroma was malty and caramel with maybe a bit of a sweetness to it.The flavor was much better then the first i had from these guys.Nice malty flavor with a nice caramel side something that seems a bit on the smokey side but faint and a nice smooth finish.A very pleasant brew for sure.

SpringsLicker (3253) - Tennessee, USA - NOV 18, 2005
Dark cherry red color with a huge frothy off white head that stands like beaten egg whites. Caramel and toasted nut aroma. Well balanced sweetness and hop bitterness comes out in front and plays back and forth all the way through a long finish. Not as heavy as a Barleywine.

Bottle. Rich and malty, I like the stuff a lot. I’m a bigger fan of malt than hops, making this one right up my alley. Pours a deep amber colour. Flavors of toffee, caramel, plums, raisins, and a warming alcohol finish. Nice work by the good people of Dusseldorf.

Pours a clear amber color with a thin offwhite head. Very good aroma of rich malt, pears, caramel and spices. Again, very good flavor of rich malt, pears, spices and caramel. The body has a medium thickness, a creamy texture and low carbonation. Excellent, one of my all-time favorite German beers.

xray (50) - Bloomfield, New Jersey, USA - OCT 29, 2005
Bottle at Spuyten Duyvil. Poured a dark plum color. Huge, frothy long lasting head that leaves behind a nice lacing. Perfect balance of malt and hops. Sweet but not cloying.

HumuloneRed (751) - Portland, Oregon, USA - OCT 29, 2005
Bottle. It pours a dark, slightly hazy copper color with a nice tan head and sticky lacing. It has malt, raisin, and brown sugar in the nose. Nice malt flavor with a good earthy hop bite. Nice beer.

Sweet malty aroma, some brown sugar too. Ruby, with a tiny tan head. Flavour is a lovely malt, nutty and woody notes follow. Medium bodied, bitter and bold. Entirely too easy to quaff. Lovely!
