Mariahilfer Antonator
(swing top bottle) Hazy, ruby brown colour with a tall but quickly collapsing tanned frothy head. Slightly dusty, toast-malty aroma with notes of caramel, chocolate and bread crusts. Moderately sweet flavour, medium to full bodied with a prickly carbonation. Toast-malty base with notes of bread crusts, toasted grains, caramel and shades of herbal hoppy spice; moderately sweet and delicately hop bitter finish with bready notes and caramel in the aftertaste. Not as sophisticated as anticipated. 21.VIII.16

Mariahilfer Schwarze Madonna Stout
(swing top bottle) Clear, ruby brown colour with a beige and firm mid-sized foamy head. Dark and mildly roasted malty aroma, slightly ashy with notes of dark chocolate and a whiff of herbal hoppy spice. Mildly bitter and slightly sweet flavour, light to medium bodied with a soft carbonation. Dark malt character with cautious roasty notes, hints of chocolate, liquorice, shades of molasses and herbal spicy notes, which are getting slightly stronger towards the bitter and slightly sweet finish with notes of chocolate in the aftertaste. Tastes like a Dunkel/Stout hybrid, not bad. 03.VIII.16

Mariahilfer Dunkles Hefe Weizen
Had this 6 years ago in Hotel Zum Bären, Zell (Bavaria), a stone’s throw away from the brewery, on a hot humid day. Today is a similar day in Amsterdam with a bottle purchased from the brewery about 5 weeks ago. Color of dark caramel, naturally cloudy. A firm off white head with quite long retention. Aroma’s of caramel, banana, wheat, a bit spices. Flavor is lightly caramel-sweet, wheaty. Body could have been a tad bit fuller. All in all tasty & refreshing.

Flavor is slightly sweet and slightly (fruity) sour. Finishes a little bit dry, but no bitterness. Not the best Hefeweizen ever, but definitely worth a try.
