minutemat (4628) - Shrewsbury, Shropshire, ENGLAND - OCT 26, 2016
330ml bottle @ monthly tasting, Chez Sophie, Oct 16. Brought by Jeremy. Many thanks! One of those beers I assumed I had rated before, but havent. Pours a hazed amber, off-white head. Aroma is ripe dark berries, malts. Taste bears a curious sweetness alongside the soft caramel malts that I think I missed last time. This I think makes it a little too sweet and imbalanced for me.

Fresh malts caramel salty fruity aroma. Amber brown minimal head. Medium body, sweet amber, starts carbonated then gets kinda molassesy like a heller bock, but without any booziness. Finish is light but nice. I imagine this would be a nice table beer with dinner.

It pours a hazy amber color with a off white almost tannish head. It has a rich, malty, aroma that features bread, dark fruits, toffee, and alcohol. It has a malty rich taste of bread, toffee, a bit of roast, spices, and alcohol. It has a heavy feel to it with a slightly sweet, the bitter aftertaste with alcohol warming.

0.33 l bottle from ’Saveur Bière’, best before june 2017. Clear, amber with a thin, frothy, slowly diminishing, tan to white head. Faint, sweetish-malty, minimally fruity aroma of caramel, nuts, rock candy, overripe banana and some raisins.
