Bouteille de 750ml. Faux bouchon de lige (plastique). La mousse impressionne sur cette bire acajou fonce, les reflets rouges sont bien apparent. Les armes de pamplemousse, de beurre et de caramel sentremlent. La beurre dtonne du lot. En bouche le liquide est crmeux, moelleux, lalcool nest pas trop prsent sauf pour une lgre amertume en fin de bouche. Le got est trs malt, le beurre fondu est aussi prsent. Est-ce que la texture crmeuse serait le beurre ?

Koelschtrinker (18349) - Kln (Cologne), GERMANY - MAY 11, 2011
Herber Antrunk mit geringem Malzanteil, stimmig aber sehr mild. Das Aroma herb-malzig bleibt fhrend, so scheint das Bier monoton, zudem zu trocken. Im Abgang zustzlich hopfig. Naja... /8/8/10//8

Bottle shared by jtclockwork, thanks James. Poured a deep dark body under a small to average sized deep beige head. Aroma of dark fruit, alcohol, cinnamon, berries and vanilla. Flavor of raisin, dry chocolate, vanilla, and some dark bread. This one melds great and all the flavors/aromas are kick ass when combined.

Bottle thanks to JTclockwork. Pours out a moderate brown with a thin white head. Aroma is of cocoa, alcohol, and burnt sugar. Taste is complex, light cocoa, caramel, fig, dried fruits and some alcohol notes in there on the finish. Solid brew. Thanks James.

750ml bottle. Nice lasting beige head on reddish-brown quite opaque brew. Very sweet caramel aroma with strong notes of spicy yeast. Thank God the flavor is more balanced! But this flavor is very intense, with notes of slightly burnt caramel, chocolate, ripe dates, herbal lasting hoppiness, rather discreet alchool and a spicy tingling touch, that I am in no way able to describe properly, but the result is quite harmonious and loveable. Full-bodied warmful beer with a velvety texture. I liked it quite a lot even if im usually not very fond of these heavy bocks... Balance always helps, except for the one Im about to explode because of the weight this beer surely had me gain!

Bottled picked up at State Line. Served in a snifter. Pours a very dark brown color with a good off-white head and a bit of light lacing. The nose is roasty with a touch of sweetness and some dark fruits. There is also a very small amount of smokey character in the background. The taste is lightly smoked and roasty and also carries a nice dark fruit presence. Impressively, the alcohol in this is not really all that detectable. The body is medium and the finish is dry, which some plum character being accentuated in the finish. A good beer, though I certainly would have preferred a 375 of this--a 750, even split up, is a bit much. Serving type: bottle Reviewed on: 12-29-2010
