Erzengel (8512) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - DEC 12, 2016
Mild woody, red fruits and plums. Sweetish hints, not too deep. Wood, round, fruity and malt. Nice but not the best batch due to a bit too less depth. The white wine is (sadly) not there for me.

Zlotta (3053) - Hagen / Bonn, GERMANY - DEC 10, 2016
Sampled from 0.375 l bottle. Clear, dark reddish brown with a beige head. Sweetish-malty aroma of caramel, brown sugar, molasses, candied cherries and some oak. Very sweet, malty and slightly fruity taste of caramel, candied cherries, plums, vanilla and oak, followed by a medium long, slightly bitter, rather warming-alcoholic finish. Medium to full body, slightly oily mouthfeel, soft carbonation. Nice, but too sweet.

Countbeer (6549) - Best of E-Town mit 2 Brauhausen, NETHERLANDS - MAY 2, 2016
Bottle: Served in a Chouffe glass: No head, just some bubbles. No carbo either... Dark ruby brown ish body... Aromas of prunes, light whiskey, white wood, honey, light vinous... Flavours of prunes, light caramel, dirty malts and dirty wood, some dried leaves, light dry, light bitter, strange and not what I expected. Aftertaste is a mix of light bitter with prunes and wood with a little dirty touch to it... Meh... No carbo, lightly thicker than watery mouthfeel, medium bodied. Aroma is nice, flavour seems to be lost... Tough job to finish this one!

Taste: very oxidized, spicy, some cinnamon, little sweet, some nutmeg. Aftertaste: sweet, caramel, some chocolate, oxidized, bit dusty, banana, bit sugary.

paulvanpelt (610) - Reusel, NETHERLANDS - OCT 3, 2015
"Vies" bruinkleurig bier, absoluut geen schuimkraag. De witte wijn komt duidelijk naar voren in het aroma. Verder hars, alcohol, hout en in de mond ook duidelijk karamel. Zoet, met ook het licht zure van een witte wijn. Volle body, nauwelijks film aanwezig, geen co2.
