Der „Brauerreserve 1237“ liegt eine ausgewählte Malzkomposition sowie Hopfen aus der Hallertau zugrunde. Sie wird mit einer Weinhefe aus der Region vergoren. Nach der Hauptgärung wird sie für mehrere Monate im Felsenkeller der Faust Schatzkapelle in spezielle Eichenholzfässer eingelagert. Die „Brauerreserve 1237“ ist ein rotbraunes opalisierendes Bier mit cremefarbenem Schaum. Sie wird gekennzeichnet durch fruchtige Aromen von Himbeere, Melone, Pflaume sowie einem Ton nach Rumtopf oder Bourbonwhiskey. Sie ist angenehm moussierend und hat einen komplexen weichen Körper mit Noten von Pflaume, Sherry und Erdbeere. Dem austarierten Säure-Süße-Gleichgewicht folgt ein rundes Barrique-Aroma im Abgang.

Erzengel (9616) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - NOV 17, 2017
Out of the bottle @ Craft Mainz 2017. Intense sticky beginning. Fruity parts with hints of ripe yellow fruits. Wood, deep dry caramel, sticky molasses, very dry but easy to drink. Long fruity deep caramel malty dry aftertafste with hints of grainy sweetness.

WillemsUrenkel (2042) - Oldenburg, GERMANY - JUN 9, 2017
0,33 l bottle directly from the brewery. Declared as Barley Wine on the label. Very dark reddish in the glass, no real head. Sweet chewing gum on the nose. Taste starts with a mix of chewing gum and barrel wood, fruity and some whiskey. Smooth but alcoholic. No real bitterness, more on the low sweet side. Increasing whiskey to the end. Complex one. Strong stuff.

Bottle from the brewery - According to the brewery this a beer that the brewer always had in reserve in his brewpub. If somehow his beer ran out he came up with this stuff, which he could store like forever, to appease the crowd, which would have probably run amok when they heard that beer is empty.
Its a dark brown color with a small stable beige head. Taste is dark fruits, sherry-like aroma (wine yeast), dark malts. Finish is quite boozy, but the beer is carefully balanced if not drunk too cold. Works fine, but is very strong. After this last drink the guests probably fell asleep.

PintjeFritz (410) - Baden-Württemberg, GERMANY - JUN 11, 2016
Nice bottle but no information on the label about the malts, hops and drinktemperature, on the webpage well.
A red brown clear beer with very nice cream-colored head, dark fruits, plum, flat carbonation, good balance between sweet- and bitterness, full body, texture is creamy until sticky, smell is bourbon,
(I have 0.75l bottle with best-before 02.11.2025 and bottle-nr. 1741 from year 2014)
