dnstone (4174) - Kansas City, Missouri, USA - JAN 23, 2018
Pours a deep copper color with off-white head. Chocolate and spice aroma. Flavor is roasty with a light, odd funky refreshing character. Notes: bottle pour, older note...perhaps my first Adambier?

djd07 (16643) - Houston, Texas, USA - DEC 31, 2017
Poured at Shelton Festival, dark amber with medium beige head that lasts. The aroma is dark fruit, wood, smoke, roast. Medium body, toasted grain, dark fruit, light smoke finish, very good.

bilcho1 (335) - Ruse, BULGARIA - DEC 9, 2017
500ml bottle at a tasting in Ruse. Pours cloudy with a thick frothy head, lacing but no bead. A complex aroma combining candied citrus and toasted malts. Creamy in the mouth, with obvious sourness balancing bitterness and a obvious sugar. Complex flavours are expressed before a clean finish. Overall, a noticeably sour strong alt for winter sipping.

ShivanDragon (4922) - Leeuwarden, NETHERLANDS - NOV 16, 2017
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 (3346) - 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.

dwyerpg (6683) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - OCT 27, 2017
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.

oberschlesier (313) - Kattowitz, UPPER SILESIA, - SEP 24, 2017
Aroma: smoke, dry fruits, sweetness. Taste: smoke, bit of sourness, intense sweetness. Beer is too sweet for me. Alc. undetectable, carbonation is very low.
