FlyingTaco (112) - Massachusetts, USA - JUL 10, 2009
Original review date 10/20/2008... Swingtop POPS from one of the funkiest bottles going. 11.2 oz. into a Reidel Extreme Riesling glass. 2 fingers of rye bread head topping a huge root beer body with a little carbonation and a solid seam. Quite impressive. A little metal off the top but this goes away quickly. Sweet doppelbock/sarsparilla scent. Slight pepper notes accompany this complex concoction. Not your babydaddy’s alt. Thick, syrupy ups...malt is huge, malty, thick and formidable. Backbone has depth with a peanutty/caramel feel to it. Hearty malt profile is extremely soothing - virtually no alcohol burn and finish is strong and solid. Definitely a sipper. Easily drinkable but works best if savoring in small doses. Well-done.

PowY (754) - AUSTRIA - MAY 26, 2017
330 ml bottle. Pours a clear dark copper with a quickly diminishing off-white head. The aroma is malty, caramel, honey, brown sugar and also some alcoholic note, slightly medicinal, glue. Full oily body with a low carbonation, a light sweetness and a medium bitterness. The flavor is very malty, honey, molasses, prunes, dates with a light alcoholic warming and a decent hoppy bitterness to balance the sweetish malt.

gsteph (325) - knoxville, Tennessee, USA - MAY 2, 2017
Pours a dark brown. No head. Looks like iced tea. Label has the date on it but I can’t read it. Sweet, sugary molasses aroma. Intermingled with liquor soaked plums and figs. Flavor is sweet but not cloying. Plums, digs, dates, and brown sugar. Malt driven is an understatement. There’s a touch of soapiness to it as well. Not much, if any, hop character. Barley wine similarities. It’s actually better than some barley wines I’ve had. Full mouth feel. It’s lush. More winter warmer or fireside brew than anything. Nicely done.

erikaraeb (224) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - APR 29, 2017
Flavour-heavy with tastes of sweet molasses, yeast, and a touch of licorice. Essentially a german dubbel ale

3.5
ironcontra (311) - POLAND - APR 29, 2017
Somewhere between liquid bread and a belgian ale. Good balance between sour (umami?) and understated sweetness. As far as alco, wouldnt even guess it contained any.
