Schenkt zwart met rode gloed en lichte kraag. aroma van caramel, mout, geroosterd, gebrand, rookmout, chocolade, cacao, rood fruit, as, krijt, Smaken zijn zacht, licht zuur, geroosterde mout, droge poederachtige cacao, krijtachtig, zacht, alcoholisch, rood fruit, rozijn, donker fruit, bruine suiker, zwak fruitzuur, matige tot redelijke body, lange smaakvolle afdronk, ben wel iets minder gecharmeerd van het fruitzuurtje, de droge poederachtig heid is wel prima.

vinivini (3000) - Gomel, BELARUS - NOV 8, 2017
UPDATED: NOV 8, 2017 bottle. opaque deep brown. small beige head. wonderful rich aroma. a blend of dark malts, fruit esters, berries, light smoke and spices. full body. flat carbonation. the taste appears not as sweet as the aroma promises. rich malts, nuts, berries, esters, light to medium ending bitterness. a pleasure, this one.

Quite tasty beer, the flavor is weird. A little hint of sour with some smoke and juniper. A definite sipper because of the flavor, not the alcohol which would be pretty unknown really.

I do not know this style at all. Is it ale or alt beer or mixed or smoked... I cannot compare it to any of my beers, coz it is first time for me drinking it. Sebastian told me again that it is an alt-bier but in traditional Dortmund style, famous in the history. So I thought again it will be regular, something like Uerige, but it is not. It is traditional Dortmund beer. And I do not know it. But generally - it is stoutish, barley-wine - ish, ipa-ish, schlenkerla-like, it is hoppy and malty, smooth and you cannot feel the alcohol at all... I cannot give minus points as to other alt beers of Freigeist, because in the other beers it is categorized - ALT BEER. And what I drink in this way is not so in this regular alt style (from my Dusseldorf experiences). But this is categorized - Dortmund ALT BEER, so it is different and no minus points will be added, coz I do not know the style and maybe this beer is closer to its Dortmund style. So, from what I tasted, I give + points to this style in general. No head, it is black.

Aroma: smoke, dry fruits, sweetness. Taste: smoke, bit of sourness, intense sweetness. Beer is too sweet for me. Alc. undetectable, carbonation is very low.

aletcm (165) - São Paulo, BRAZIL - SEP 15, 2017
Marrom escuro avermelhado com espuma beje de boa formação e persistência. Aroma de malte, caramelo, frutas passas ao fundo. Sabor de caramelo, biscoito, frutas passas, com leve e agradável acidez no final. Médio dulçor e amargor. Esconde multo bem a sua alta graduação alcoólica. Deixa um sabor residual de médio amargor com leve acidez e adstringência persistente. Muito boa. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

FatPhil (17078) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - AUG 13, 2017
500ml bottle (One Pint, Helsinki) (5:4:5:3:9=2.6)
Heavy sweet sticky malty brew. Bready. Dark. A bit oppressive as it’s too sweet. Definitely the final beer of the evening, there’s no recovery from half a litre of this.

Tap. Very dark red to black body, higher off-white head. Aroma of smoke, chocolate, fruity, plums. Taste is sourish, a bit sweet. Cherries, chocolate, smoke. Pleasant sour aftertaste. Medium body and carbonation.
Very dangerous beer, high drinkability and medium body are in opposition to high alcohol content. Very good, but fuller body should suit better.
