2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Fairly clear coppery red pour with a creamy beige head that quickly shrinks to surface cover. Sweet malty nose has notes of toffee, dates, chocolate, nuts and raisins. Flavour is pretty similar, a little more roasty and the fruitiness takes a backseat to the nutty malt overtones. Alcohol is well hidden but the sweetness becomes a bit overbearing. Medium to light bodied with a slightly watery mouthfeel, lively carbonation and a lingering roasty, sweet finish. Rather simplistic overall and somewhat unbalanced in favour of malty sweetness. Drinkable but not the best example of this style.

Pours a clear dark ruby-red colour (cherrywood) with a small off-white, not very long lasting head. Aromas of roasted malt, grain, alcohol and nice sweet fruits (cherry). Flavours of herbal hops, nice toast and caramel. Keeps his fruitiness. Well balanced sweet and bitter finish. Actually very drinkable, suprisingly light body for a 8% beer. soft carbonation. Good one!

Bottle, traded with McTapps and MichaelAwesome, thanks! Toast, caramel, nuts and dried fruit in the aroma. Not really sweet for the style, balanced. A bit too well attenuated, hence somewhat lacking in terms of body. On the other hand - given its parameters, it’s impressive how they managed to hide the alcohol. Easy drinkable, with additional notes of chocolate and marzipan in the flavour. Tasty.

50cl bulky Bruderbottle bb06/2015, love this brewery’s mock-historical label design. Fresh yeast-quickened nose full of plum mousse, raisins, brown bread crust, marzipan. Drinks far easier than its whopping 8+% while typically offering more unilateral, but quality substance than layered subtlety in return: earthy, leathery malt roast, caramel on sundried tomato, brown bread, wild honey, fennel - at least a headstrong mix of sweet and savoury only found in the better specimens of this heavyhanded style. Makes sense in the right gastronomic context, or in lieu of it.
