bartlebier's rating

   AROMA 4/10   APPEARANCE 3/5   TASTE 5/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 10/20
bartlebier (3767) - Belchium im Biersgau, - DEC 20, 2012
UPDATED: OCT 20, 2015 Not very enjoyable, oversweet, cloying and virtually aromaless, overboosted honeycomb concoction that shames Waldhaus’ otherwise quality output and use of natural hops. Undercarbonated, hops buried under unnecessary 8.5 ABV ethanol and sugary malts. Not ostentively awful, but leaden and unbelievably dull. More sensible and tasty paths were chosen with their 7.0% IPA - their Dunkel is enjoyable as well. // Rerate: Edition 2015, MHD 10/2016. obviously updated 2015 version, maybe after all the negative feedback? Still a 8,5% Doppelbock, bottomfermented.... Nose of wet starch, old honey, jenever and vodka. Taste and palate have become much drier, less sticky/pappy/starch. A hint of freezedried peppery aroma hops. Alcoholwise, venturing into tripel territory, without any of the Tripel phenols or esters to balance out the heavy alcohol. As refined as an unnecessary 8,5% Doppelbock will ever become...

BeardedAvenger (546) - Addlestone, Surrey, ENGLAND - JAN 22, 2017
Bottle at home, thanks to bartlebier. Feint saccharine sweet aroma. Amber tinged gold. Thin white head around the rim. Sweet with a capital ’S’. Perhaps a hint of sourness. Light bodied. Watery which takes on a slick feel into the long finish, which does have some warmth to it. If it had been sweeter it would have not been finished. Puts me in mind of the cheap screwtop German wines I used to drink pre-gig at to make my student budget go further (but this was nearly 20 years ago so may be bullshit). I need to go back to Hull some day. Similarly I’d be happy to drink a few of these in order to get pissed.

Blueshawk (465) - Bad Bellingen, GERMANY - SEP 3, 2016
- hellgelbe Farbe mit fast keiner Schaumbildung - undefinierbare leicht süßliche Aromen - Carbonisierung ist kaum vorhanden, dadurch entsteht eine leicht ölige Konsistenz - geschmacklich bleibt es malzig-karamellig-süß, aber ohne irgendeine erkennbare Struktur aufzuzeigen - der Abgang wird dann nur noch wässrig-alkoholisch Fazit: Undefinierbare alkoholisch-süße Brühe

zvsn (1860) - ISRAEL - JUL 26, 2015
Bottle. Hazy yellow orange with a small head, does not look a typical doppel bock. Smell of fruity esters, spices and yeast. Taste of sweet malt, overripe fruit, yeasty spiceness. Medium bodied, quite boozy. Not bad just too weird for doppel bock.

Calisky (2774) - ALSACE, FRANCE - DEC 14, 2014
Couleur dorèe, très légère mousse blanche. Nez malté,pomme, note caramel, comme le style bière forte pas chère.... Gout pareil... Vraiment décevante pour une doppel bock!

Erzengel (8293) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - NOV 16, 2014
Smooth malts-sweetish. Fresh, not too sticky, intense. Smooth with a not too deep sweetish body. Easy to drink, but I miss the complexity a bit.

minutemat (5034) - Shrewsbury, Shropshire, ENGLAND - SEP 7, 2014
330ml bottle, thanks to Beerhunter111. Pours gold, with white head. Actually didn’t mind this, unlike those below. My notes say ’bubblegum lager’ and this had a fair sweetness that complements the malts. It is slightly cloying but I enjoyed it.

darkseduction (731) - Zweibrücken, GERMANY - MAR 14, 2014
Flasche 33cl. Goldfarbener Doppelbock mit mäßiger Krone. In Duft und Antrunk unbesonders. Was ist denn hier passiert? Kein Ausnutzen des tollen weichen Brauwassers? Wo bleibt die Finesse der anderen Produkte der Brauerei? Sehr enttäuschend. Flach, spritig, ölig. Hatte viel mehr erwartet.
