dnicolaescu (2275) - Chișinău, MOLDOVA - JAN 18, 2017
BOTTLE 50 CL. Hazy dark mahogany, bug beige head. Smells of dried bitter cherries and clove, winey notes. Not very malty and not hot at all. Chewy mouthfeel, moderately sweet and vinous rich taste - dried cherries, almonds and cloves, fermenting plums along with some acetone. Surprisingly, it is less sweet than Helles variety, and more sophisticated too. Very good.

Botttle. Pours dark brown, medium tan head. Aroma of bread, dark fruit, sweet licorice. Medium-high sweetness. Medium-full body, texture is on the creamy side with some stickiness. Finishes lightly sweet, a little metallic.

Zlotta (2516) - Hagen, GERMANY - MAR 27, 2016
0.5 l bottle from Biermuda, best before May 2016. Cloudy, dark brown with a huge, creamy, stable, tan head. Sweetish, yeasty-spicy and minimally fruity aroma of banana, clove, nuts and some dark ripe fruits. Sweetish, yeasty-spicy and slightly fruity taste of banana, lots of clove, nuts, bread, chocolate and some dark ripe fruits, followed by a medium long, slightly bitter, yeasty-spicy and lightly warming-alcoholic finish. Medium to full body, effervescent mouthfeel, lively carbonation. Moreish and satisfying, great stuff!

biirusaikou (2641) - - JAN 3, 2016
Draught at Pigalle. Rich banana cake with a caramel edge, plum, clove, peppery notes, gentle sweet finish. Solid stuff, full-bodied and smooth, probably one of their best I guess.

darkseduction (726) - Zweibrcken, GERMANY - DEC 23, 2014
Flasche 50cl. Dunkel, stark, heftig. Ein Brett, alkoholisch indiziertes Hefe- und Weizenaroma. A bisserl zu heftig fr meinen Geschmack, kommt nicht an die Harmonie vom Gruppenfhrer Aventinus heran. Trotzdem gefllig.

jinroh (1363) - ESTONIA - DEC 6, 2014
Pours hazy, dark brown. Really hazy, leaving even somewhat dirty impression. There is a bit of foam too. Cloves and banana in the aroma - and also in the taste. Sweet and warming. Light sourness from wheat. Nice and enjoyable.
