COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Baltus, a hybrid style, is a top-fermented beer made with English floor malts, malted wheat and noble hops. A classic European yeast strain with a subtle yet discernable estery profile is employed. A warmer fermentation, followed by a period of cold conditioning serves to develop and refine this complex beer.

Pretty good interpretation of the Belgian strong ale style. Doesn’t taste as strong as it really is.

(backlog) Bottle at a tasting at maxxdaddy’s. Brune pour with tan head. Oxidation, fruit, light malt, perhaps some hints of hop and more complex malt tones. Age took its toll.

UPDATED: AUG 25, 2013 Thanks jason. Pours to a murky deep brown body with a white head. The aroma is almost a little oxidized. Perhaps a bit of wet dog? The flavor is malty with a lot of strawberry seeds and fruit leather. Medium full body and thick.

12 oz twist cap. Thanks to Steven. Pours out a clear caramel topped with a tiny head. Aroma of sweet malts, caramel, oldness, and some pit fruit. Taste is much as the aroma with old heading the nose lots of sweetness along with some molasses.

12oz bottle pours a murky, caramel amber with some spitty head. Nose is heavy with port wine, sherry, wood, caramel, brown sugar, coconut. Flavor is sweet, apples, watery caramel flavoring, sherry, port, brandy, light wood, some orange. Medium bodied, watery finish. Well past it’s prime, but a unique beer at this point.

Musty oxidized aroma. Cardboard honey light yeast ester. Hazy orange amber no head or lace. Musty oxidized honey brown bread ane touch of yeast esters. Fairly oxidized ... but for a 10 year old screw top beer it could have been worse.

12 oz. Screwtop. Thanks ak! This beer is basically done at this point.vpours a murky toffee colored medium brown. No head or lace. Faint salty caramel nose. Watery still body. Caramel and cardboard mid palate. Tawny port. Mild finish.

italarican (1606) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 15, 2011
2005 bottle at a Max tasting. Pours a muddy tan. Aroma is sulfitic with notes of stinky feet. Flavor has lots of acetaldehyde, toffee, and sulfur (burnt rubber). A touch of caramel in the finish dominated by prominent cardboard and burnt rubber. This is no longer good, to the point that it’s hard to tell if it was ever good at all.

Bottle at Max’s impromptu tasting. Pours slightly hazywitha thin white head. Vinous and old malt sweet oxidization. Very light carbonation. Big oxidization turning into old bitterness. Old oxidization finishes it up.

4.2
Koelschtrinker (22513) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - MAY 21, 2011
Malzig-schwerer Geruch, süß, klebrig. Würziger Malzantrunk, tiefgehend, dabei ist das Bier recht süß, was aber wiederum in den Gesamteindruck passt. Die tief malzig-klebrige Note, die im Mittelteil weiter bleibt, weist eine deutliche und harmonische Kräuternote auf, die der Würzigkeit beiwohnt. Würziger werdend, malzig, trotz der Aromenintensität bleibt eine gewisse Harmonie erhalten. Zum Ende vergoren fruchtig und karamellig. Super Bier! Vielen Dank an DerDoppelbock für die Ermöglichung des Tests! 10/13/11/14/12/13
