bartlebier (3815) - Belchium im Biersgau, - NOV 20, 2012
33cl bottle from Bierzwerg. - Drinkable, but all elements taste far more watery & doughy than the extravagant recipe + marketing indicate. Not that spicy, not that black (transparent brown), bland but not vile.

Gangstergafje (945) - Capelle aan den IJssel, NETHERLANDS - MAR 19, 2017
The beer sure is black. On the naked eye the beer is very dark. Strong light reveals a rather light ruby glow. The beer is quite cloudy. On top of the beer some rough off-white foam is formed. The most of the foam collapses quickly, leaving next to nothing. The smell is a bit mild. I wish it was a bit stronger. What I smell is nice though. I smell a nice herbal beer. I mell some rather sweet malts, together with some aromas of caramel. On top of this, there are some bitter roast touches. I also smell bitter and slightly acidic fresh hops and nice herbal aroma. It reminds me of other traditional herbal beers, such as Jopen Koyt. It is nice, but you need to love it. The taste is the same. It is nice, but to mild. It misses kick. There are nice sweet and roasty bitter malts, bitter and slightly sour hops, nice herbs and a wood-like flavour. Everything pairs perfectly and is well balanced, but the overall flavour is to weak. A missed chance. I wish it was stronger, that would make it a lot better. The palate is fine. The body of the beer is a bit to light. The beer is smooth, a bit creamy even. Carbonation is medium. The finish contains some nice herbal flavours and ends in a rather dry bitterness. All in all, a very nice beer, that needs a bit more flavour. The flavour and smell are nice, just to mild.

Trolleo (1478) - Pula / Zagreb, CROATIA - FEB 1, 2016
Hazy to cloudy brown color, small off-white to tan head. Little bit nutty. Again, the same bio/organic note throughout aroma and taste. Thin to medium body with watery finish. Soft to flat carbonation. Not bad, but there is something missing. //bottle bought at Graz craft beer festival

massingasetta (721) - Mnchen, GERMANY - NOV 27, 2015
Oh my.. what is this? A beer made with all types of herbs that is organic and malty. Slightly like a caramel stout, with a herbal rainbow. Like a coffee with a shot of something in it.
