Fatehunter (1579) - Corbett, Oregon, USA - JAN 15, 2013
Two fingers of head on a cloudy copper colored body. The aroma is malty, barnyard, hay and caramel. It borders musty, but it’s still nice. The flavor has a malt sweetness, mild bitterness and a curious spice note at the end. Smooth texture with low carbonation and heavier body. An enjoyable beer. The taste is a bit different with the spice, but it’s a good addition.

CapFlu (4723) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 27, 2015
Pours a lasting thin white creamy head atop a light copper coloured body. Nose of a raw dough and mildly spiced bread. Very drinkable. Smooth and clean with a decent german malt background. Reminds me of Brick’s Waterloo Dark lager... If anyone remembers that one. Courtesy of Jonas. Thanks pal!

yngwie (14907) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - DEC 31, 2014
Bottle. A clear, dark golden beer with a dense, off-white head. Some lacings. The aroma is rather vegetal, with pale malts and grassy notes. Some caramel hints in the flavor, with a generic fruityness. Resin and grass and a decent bitterness. Medium body, very soft carbonation. Some bitterness towards the grassy finish. Very boring this one. Not too good either. 141231

StueyD (1380) - Heacham, Norfolk, ENGLAND - DEC 30, 2014
A mid amber brown coloured beer with a thick white head. A strong malty aroma, caramel and a hint of bready spice. Dry mouthfeel. There is a tartness to the taste in the beginning, maybe a suggestion of hop, but then the malt flavour charge through! Caramel and bready, loads of dried fruit, herbal and a touch of warming vanilla and cinnamon. The finish has all the elements that last for a long while!

BlackHaddock (4690) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - JUL 25, 2014
Half-litre bottle: BBD 2nd Sept 14, poured into a tall handled mug from Wolzacher Brauhaus at home on 25th July 14. The three beer in my German tasting evening. Looks good, an amber hue to the old gold body, on top a foaming head of white snow. Malty nose and initial taste with a hop bitterness arriving mid-sip. I like it. Robust and tasty, this is a very drinkable brew which hides the 5.4% ABV nicely with its flavours and depth of body. Not too wintery in it’s make up for me, slight herbal note here and there but nothing ’Christmassy’ about it apart from the front label on the bottle.
