This beer has not been available until recently as the brewing stopped some years ago. They restarted brewing again late 2012, draught only, but are presently installing a new brewing plant at the brewery Museum in Monschau, and plan to begin bottling again late 2013, available only at the Museum bar presently. Their beers are not sour, if so are old and off. ao please disregard rates including sour references, in fact the 2007 sampler was probably 10 or more years old, Regards, Marcus

#198 Das Fazit schon mal vorweg genommen: Ein wahrlich leckeres Bier! Es ist nur minimal trüb und sieht wie ein Alt aus. Das Aroma ist eher herb als süßlich. Der Antrunk ist sehr weich und der Geschmack herb-malzig. Im Abgang etwas dünn, aber stets präsent. Hefe habe ich allenfalls ansatzweise vernommen. Nicht unbedingt sortentypisch, aber wohlbekömmlich und schlichtweg gelungen! Anmerkung: Das Brauereimuseum nebenan hatte leider schon geschlossen. Das wird aber unbedingt nachgeholt, denn Monschau ist immer eine Reise wert!! Test vom 14.5.2008, Gebinde: Fass Noten: 12,12,12,12,-,12 - 12,00

Koelschtrinker (10649) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - MAY 3, 2011
Danke an DerDoppelbock für das Bier. Malzig-hopfiger Geruch. Milder Antrunk, in dem das Malz recht allein steht. Im Mittelteil wird das Malz dunkler, steht aber weitestgehend weiter alleine. Im Nachgeschmack regt sich dasnn endlich was, das Bier wird schön würzig, der Hopfen dominiert hier deutlich Mal fruchitg, mal nussig, Angenehmes Bier! Test vom 16.2.2007, Gebinde: Glasflasche Noten: 9,10,9,12,9,9

JoeinDahlem (1326) - Berlin, Berlin, GERMANY - MAR 1, 2010
Available at a few shops and pubs in Monschau. Bottle pours dark brown, slightly hazy, with copper highlights and tan, sturdy foam. Sweet malty nose with caramel and notes of cola and currant. Sweetish taste with light bitterness, well-rounded, balanced and very drinkable. Nice stuff.

BelgianBeerGal (3190) - Panama City, Florida, USA - NOV 25, 2007
50cl swing-top bottle at Hause Bongartz Aldenhoven in Monschau. Enjoyable beer that went well with the hirsch goulash. Muddied browne colour with a short tan head. Caramel and yeast in the aroma. Flavour was sweet with more yeast and bread.

   AROMA 5/10   APPEARANCE 3/5   TASTE 6/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 12/20
Rastacouere (6129) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 27, 2007
Hazy dark almond coloured ale topped by a small, slowly diminishing off-white cover. Surprisingly yeasty for an alt, highly bready and less attenuated than I expect from the style. It has the classic nut notes and grassy hops, but almost muted down by a nondescript sweetness, not even caramelly, just sweetish breadiness. It does not sound very good, but I did not find it so bad, it is well-textured and rather crisp in its carbonation which carries the almost generic flavours better than they deserve.

Ungstrup (29286) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - SEP 25, 2007
Bottled. An unclear dark brown beer with a thin beige head. The aroma is sweet wheaty with light notes of caramel and a slight acidity from the wheaty. The flavor is very sweet with notes of hard roasted malt combined with an acidic note of wheat, and hints of smoke, leading to a dry bitter finish. The combination making it very refreshing.

imdownthepub (10226) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - AUG 10, 2007
Bottled, pasteurised, 500ml at Hause Bongartz Aldenhoven, Moschau, Germany. Brown amber with muddy head. Particularly malty beer and quite sweetish throughout, some fruitiness and a chalky, bready background. It’s ok.

reakt (950) - Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 2, 2007
UPDATED: SEP 1, 2007 bottle. This smells like ass. When the head settles, it smells like refried beans. Tastes a lot better - malt, rye. and refried beans. Slightly sweet and spicy. Not very great, but ok.

duff (5484) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - MAY 7, 2007
Bottle. Quite a bready/doughy start, quite malty. Some lightly nutty/woody characters also come through. Finish is grassy, lightly bitter and quite refreshing. Nice unfiltered altbier.
