Honey beer with molasses and oats

Just cause itís dark and German doesnít mean itís an alt. Based on the obscure Kottbusser style of beer, this surprisingly dry beer retains all the aroma and nuance of honey (from bees) and molasses (not from bees) creating a perception of sweetness through cool, controlled fermentation. Because weíre sweet enough damn it.

Grain Bill: Pils, Dark Munich, Chocolate Malt, Wheat Malt, Flaked Oats
Hops: Northern Brewer, Hallertau Hersbrucker, Strisselspalt
Adjunct: Honey, Molasses
13.5 Plato

From a 12 oz bottle into a stem glass. Pours brown with head and lace. Aroma of dark malts, molasses, oats. Medium carbonation and mouthfeel. Flavors of caramel malts, molasses, minerals, grains. Overall somewhat rich and unique, drinkable but not delicious.

MicroGrog (367) - FT: Stale Polotmavż in Queens, New York, USA - MAR 16, 2017
Bottle from Whole Foods Bowery. Cut artwork. Rounded pint glass. Thin, foaming oatmeal head. Brown on black see through body. Smell is brown bread, oats & caramelized sugar. Soft. Taste is of an extremely smooth brown ale. Oats bring a fluffier texture & a baked flavor. Molasses seem to add a deep toasted burnt sugar sharpness. I canít really single out the honey, but I would guess off experience that it thickened & sweetened up the brew somewhat as it does my morning tea. Low abv, but itís richness makes it not quite as easy. Again, great lingering texture. Ever so slightly flat, but it is better for it. I appreciate the small format & being able to approach something new to me that wasnít just another double imperial sour wild ale. :-)

12 oz bottle from Liberty Beer in Pittsburgh. Just about everything is good but a few points off overall. Loved the artistic label.

Block (2688) - Indianapolis, Indiana, USA - DEC 29, 2016
Backlog entry: I had this one at the brewery. Itís a solid beer, nothing too unusual or stand-out.

Beerdedone (3401) - Croydon, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 24, 2016
Bottle. Pours dark brown with a small white head. Aroma of caramel, nuts, honey and some faint molasses. Flavor was slightly sweet with honey, molasses, caramel, bread, nuts, chocolate and had a touch of earthiness.

katrinaez (1924) - norristown, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 24, 2016
Really nice ale with lots of extras. Honey, brown sugars, vanilla, and toasted malt. Really easy to drink and the style has a great mouth feel. Bottle

crispaire (233) - - OCT 15, 2016
Little smoke and malts on the nose. Poured a deep dark cola brown from a bottle. Effervescent bite on the tongue. Exceptionally smooth brown-ish ale. Tastes of bittersweet chocolate, coffee, molasses, and a lingering sweet finish. Medium body to boot.

N3lson1 (1005) - Long Valley, New Jersey, USA - SEP 1, 2016
Drank from a pint glass poured from a twelve ounce bottle. A nice solid, old ale.

sunevdj (4084) - Copenhagen OE, DENMARK - APR 27, 2016
On tap at CBC 2014. Pours a clear brown with a small off-white head. Quite sweet with a light bitterness. Aromas of caramel malts with hints of toasted malts and dates. Medium bodied. Soft carbonation. Dry finish.

Shot (520) - Westerville, Ohio, USA - APR 23, 2016
Bottle. Pours cola-like with a very thin head that dissipates completely. It looks like a flat Coke. Aromas are very subtle: honey, cocoa, and German yeast. Vinous flavors, honey, cocoa, cola, and subtle metallic notes. Mouthfeel is peppery and watery, yet it coats the tongue. This is reminiscent of a home-brew attempt at a dopplebock that didnít quite work out.
