Alengrin (4919) - BELGIUM - NOV 29, 2015
Somewhat idiosyncratic Austrian beer with irregular, loosely structured, light beige head and hazy bronze colour with amber hue. Aroma of toasted bread, overripe plums, flowers, some banana, redcurrant, dates, freshly fermented farmland. Estery, fruity, sweetish onset (fig, raisin) with soft sourish edge, some dried banana, fluffy mouthfeel, smooth caramelly malt sweetness becoming a bit toasted in the end paired with mild herbal hop bitterishness, some powdery yeastiness and a spicy flavour which I assume comes from the Epimedium plant apparently used in this. The alcohol provides a bit of warmth but I would never have guessed this is a 9%+ beer. Nor would I have guessed this is made in Austria, this feels a lot like a spiced Belgian winter ale...

Thanks Mladen! Shared with the others. Dark amber-red body with an off white small head. Malty, caramelly, raisiny aroma, nice enough. Taste... yeah, caramell, herbal notes, nutty, nicely grainy. Dry finish. Well, definitely good for the strength/style. Couldnt sense that herb but still... maybe it wouldve been more effective if I drank the entire bottle. :D Couldnt find any flaws with it and the ABV is very well hidden.

(Gusswerk Horny Betty) Bottle 330 ml from a trade with Beerhunter111,thanks! Served into a tulip, ABV 9.2% Deep red to chestnut brown colour on the body, clear, with almost two full fingers of thick, light beige head on top. Average retention. Aroma of caramel, light toffee, herbs, old wood. Taste is herbal, malts, caramel, well hidden alcohol. Medium thin body, carbonation on the low side. Drinks okay, nothing Ill remember for long though.

LLaurin (386) - Motala, SWEDEN - OCT 18, 2015
A dark amber beer with a fruity flavour at first. Some peach and banana in the palate. Light alcoholic sweetness in the finight. I miss some more bitterness or presence of hops. Still enjoyable.

F: beige, average lasting. C: opaque, hazy, brown. A: herbal with some like bacon, sugary, yeasty. T: smooth, oily mouthfeel, like woody tones with some pudding, cinnamon, honey, dusty like, spicy, some dry herbal bitterness on the palate, not my cup of tea but interesting and worth to try.

Danjo312 (107) - Hamburg, GERMANY - SEP 27, 2015
Würzig, malzig, leicht herbal. Wer mal etwas ganz anderes trinken möchte, der ist hier wohl gut aufgehoben. Schön dezenter Schaum, gut trinkbar. Bei 10 Grad gefühlt am süßesten! Leicht bitter, toller Abgang. Eigentlich fast wie ein Porter, nur anders! ;) Tolles Bier mit schönem Etikett und super Auftritt. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

kajser27 (1610) - Zagreb, CROATIA - SEP 24, 2015
Ruby to brown colored, clear, medium beige creamy head. Aroma is malty, bit of caramel, more toasty some dried fruits and green apples. Taste is medium sweet toffee, burnt sugar, nutty, dried fruits, again green apples, some low+ herbal bitterness. Alcohol is hidden well enough. Medium bodied and carbonation.

DrNosha (1996) - Baden Wrttemberg, GERMANY - SEP 7, 2015
Toffee und Frucht und Banane in der Nase. Farbe wie ein trbes Spezi. Geschmack dunkler Karamel. Erinnert an ein Werthers Echtes. Der starke Alkohl sticht nicht heraus

Flaschn: Deep ruby-amber coloured, floaties visible, small and persistent off-white head; relatively dry nose of dried fruits and caramel and some unknown spices; moderate to solid -relatively- bitter flavour with a delicate sweetness, pretty light bodied for a beer of 9.2%; lingering vinous and caramelly finish. O.K., surely nothing special
