Borup (14527) - Albertslund, DENMARK - JUL 10, 2017
Bottle st Glockl Brau. A vrown coloured beer with an off-white head. Aroma and flavour of malt, caramel, bread, sugar and with a roasted finish.

Icedwarf (1657) - Etten-Leur, NETHERLANDS - MAY 29, 2017
Donkerbruin bier met weinig schuim. Smaak is licht bitter en zoetzuur met iets van chocolade, karamel en rozijn of druif. Heel goed.

MaltMeister72 (1) - DOMINICAN REPUBLIC - MAY 2, 2017 does not count
Great on the nose, has this particular smokey dense taste that old-fashioned german/austrian crafted beers often have. Deep intense flavor notes, notably chocolate and coffee. Surprisingly good for such an inexpensive beer.

From old tasting notes. Translucent reddish brown color has a large tan head. The aroma is rich, sweet roasted malt with molasses notes. Candy-like sweet roasted malt flavor pervades upfront. Finish is slightly less sweet, but lacking any noticeable hops. Sweet malt aftertaste is too much.

From notes. Enjoyed on draft at the brewery in Graz with Gary on November 18. The pour is a darker brown color with a thin layer of off white head and a couple spots of lace as it falls. The aroma is heavy on the roasted malts and a light caramel. There is a light fruitiness to it that is throwing me, but it’s interesting. The flavor mimics this, but offers a little more cereal and general graininess. The malt really controls, and it’s not a terrible thing. The mouth feel is viscously light and carries a softer carbonation. The aftertaste is lingeringly roasty with a hint of caramel. Not too terrible.

brewtalita (330) - Prague, CZECH REPUBLIC - AUG 8, 2016
Brown, low tan head. Aroma nuts, roasty notes, cereal. Palate medium, low carbonation. Taste light roastiness, wood, grassy tones. Balanced.

midovark (936) - Balassagyarmat, HUNGARY - AUG 4, 2016

Rhombic (130) - SPAIN - APR 4, 2016
Pours dark brown to orangeish black with pale tan head. Decent lacing. Malt very prominent but also some apricot. Oily. Medium finish.

2.5
tfontana (976) - Fremont, New Hampshire, USA - FEB 11, 2016
Bottle pour into nonic pint glass from Den Rock Liquor Mart. Aroma is light roasted malt, leather, funk, German yeast. Appearance is hazy amber with bits of sediment, no sparkle, ephemeral thin white head, and trace lacing. Taste is mainly moderately sweet--a bit toward root beer, with some German yeast funkiness. Palate is medium bodied with somewhat oily texture, average carbonation and dry bitter-tart finish. Overall, glad to check off an Austrian brew but don’t know when I’ll try my next one. Not good.
