BiddleBrau (1238) - Fort Washington, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 22, 2012
Older bottle but can’t quite make out the date on the label. Nice deep red color, no head to speak of. Quite malty nose, a bit stale smelling. Taste reminds me of a barley wine past it’s prime; flat and sticky and alcoholic. Hops and malt do play well together but there is just too much history on this beer to do it justice.

Bottle thanks to Erik. Pours brown with a beige head. Aroma of herbs, brown sugar, hops, spices, lots of malts, marthy notes, lil booze and ripe plums. Taste of caramel, hops, spices, herbs and a big malty profile.

UPDATED: OCT 29, 2017 Many thanks for this rare Altbier to Mariusz. Bottled on 02/2006. Almost 12 years old Altbier. Fantastyczny i nieco inny i swietnie zaskakujacy Alt z Dusseldorfu. Ten smak kilkunastoletni wyraznie sie zauwaza. Wystrzal krachli tak glosny ze niemal ogluchlem. Dymu tyle co w starym WV napedzanym silnikiem Diesel ze podczas nalewania do kieliszka az sie z niego dymilo!. Fantastyczny efekt. Wyglad to rudo bordowa barwa. Na dnie butelki, potem w kieliszku skrzepliny starych i juz nie aktywnych drozdzy. Piana jest srednia i moze nie jest szalowa, i malo trwala (to jedyny maly minus tego piwa). Smakowo jest genialne. Przypominalo mi stary karmel, prazone ziarna slonecznika i orzechy pecan. Na sam koniec jest wytrawnie i owocowo, Figi i liofizowana zurawina. Majstersztyk. Bardzo polecam do lezakowania. Raz jeszcze dziekuje Mariuszowi za zdobycie tego piwa (to bylo pare lat temu, a moze i wieki). Pozdrawiam

Ciemne piwo koloru mocnej herbaty, piana kremowa dość obfita, szybko opada. Aromat głównie słodowy, trochę karmelu, rodzynek, goździków. W smaku podobnie głównie nuty słodowe, karmel, ciemne owoce, finisz wytrawny.

Grumpelmies (364) - GERMANY - OCT 21, 2017
UPDATED: OCT 21, 2017 Bottle. Dark mahagony/amber with a huge head and lots of lacing. Aroma of malts, soy sauce, hops, nuts and some fruitiness. Taste is malts, liquorice, dried dark fruits, cough syrup and soy sauce. Spicy, slightly sweet but more on the bitter side. Medium carbonation. Robust mouthfeel. Alcoholic warmth and a little bit boozy. Nice.

Draft at Rothbard. Strong smells of yeast and malt. Pours dark brown with a tan head with tiny bubbles. Huge tastes of raisins and malt with alcohol undertones. Oily mouthfeel and tons of lacing. Big character beer.

gripweed57 (2863) - Hamilton Square, New Jersey, USA - SEP 27, 2017
33 cl swingtop bottle. Murky brown color. Small creamy tan head. Rich complex dark fruit aroma. Flavor upfront is dark malt with notes of prunes, raisins and burnt sugar. Complex and flavorful. Smooth and oily mouthfeel. Some resiny hop bitterness in finish, though understated. Warming alcohol as well. The malt shines here. A real sipping brew that improves as it warms. Outstanding!

Bottle 33 cl. Opaque dark brown color with yellowish foam. Sweet and dense aroma: malty, caramel, dried prunes, blue plum jam, port wine or similar strong and sweet wine, esters and a light perfume note (slivovitz). Taste: very sweet, jam from blackberries, plums and raspberries, caramel, dried fruits, a drop of slivovitz, bitter finish. Very good.

Scopey (15704) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 18, 2017
Bottle from Utobeer. It pours dark brown with a medium beige head. The aroma is rich, malt - driven, sticky, oily, molasses, soft aniseed nuance, dried fruit, fruit cake, toasty, burnt toffee and wood. The taste is drying, rich, chewy, oily, slick, molasses, dried fruits, jam, earthy, wood, bark, tannin, stewed black tea, bit of spice, toasty and warming alcohol through the finish. Pretty drying and chewy stuff after a while. Has nice aspects to it, but it is a bit heavy duty.
