COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION

Clearly barley-wine oriented, very warm malt notes, intense earthy bitterness. Despite being at the limit of the style, this is a very good beer. Thanks Uerige!

chris__hartley (332) - Ontario, CANADA - JUL 2, 2015
It pours murky mahogany with copper highlights; the head is bone coloured and mousse like. The aroma has notes of: dark rye bread, fruit cake, molasses, and raisins. The taste is medium sweet that finishes heavy bitter; there are notes of: raisins, dark rum, pumpernickel, grapefruit zest, and citrus pith. The palate is full bodied and has light carbonation; the mouth feel is sticky with a long bitter finish. Overall, a great interpretation of the barely wine style.

Bottle @ home. Pours a dark brown liquid with a beige small head. Sweet and lightly vinous aroma with loads of maltiness raisins, plums, caramel. Taste is full bodied and with a duration that resembles madness. Fantastic. Flavors of nuts,caramel, syrup, herbs, malt, and ...

jamesewelch (210) - Burlington, Vermont, USA - JUN 10, 2015
From bottle, Brewed in 2008, bottled 10.08, tasted on 15.06

Aroma: big fruits, sweet, figs, caramel, figs, very nice

Appearance: dark amber, near brown, very small tan head

Taste: Very alcoholic and warming. Somewhat chewy like a dopplebock. Very heavy.
Palate: medium to fully, oily, soft carbonation, bitter finish

Overall: Very complex. I picked this bottle up as a Dussledorf Alt-bier for BJCP tasting from my local bevy and didn’t notice it was a dopplesticke. It was incredibly complex and very warming/alcoholic, but not overly alcoholic. Everyone mentioned it was like a barelywine, but I enjoyed this much more than any American barelywine that I’ve had. I’m saving another bottle for winter - I expect this to taste great around the fireplace.

Zlotta (348) - Amstelveen, NETHERLANDS - MAY 25, 2015
0,33 l bottle from REWE Budnik & Homberg, bottled in 2014. Clear, dark red with a thin, frothy, almost stable, tan head. Pleasant aroma of redcurrant, raisins, cherries, red grapes and a bit of port. Heavy, sweetish-fruity taste of raisins, molasses, prunes, figs and caramel. Long, slightly bitter and rather alcoholic, warming finish. Full body, oily and chewy mouthfeel, soft carbonation. Very heavy, barleywine-like beer. Decent winter warmer but a bit too alcoholic to be honest.

Bottle. Murky dark brown. Some caramel, dried fruit and biscuit, and a little bit of alcohol in the nose. Tastes alcoholic, dark dried fruit and sweet. Full body, syrupy texture and a little nutty finish.

Bottle from Vinmonopolet Lambertseter enjoyed at home
Pours dark, almost black in glass, creamy light tanned head. Smell of dark fruity malts, toffee, dried fruits, quite straight but at the same time exquisite! Modereate to medium sweet, dark fruits, toffee, dried fruits, hints of toast, dark fruit bitterness, fruit peel, medium bitter.. This is quite far away from the typical alt. Amazingly complex and interesting.
