argo0 (13069) - Washington DC, USA - OCT 18, 2006
(33cl bottle) Large beige head atop clear copper body, lots of dead yeast clumps out on the second pour. And the second pour is worth noting, because this really came across as two different beers. Initially, aroma is moderately sweet, plum/raisin, some anise, caramel, alcohol. On the second pour, the aroma is similar, but fuller. First time, taste is medium sweet, raisin/plum, caramel, light anise, seltzer. Second pour, the taste is much richer, some milk chocolate appears, and the seltzer quality vanishes. From the top, medium body, some effervescence, but seems a bit thin. Later, much richer, medium-full body with grainy texture from the yeasties. The difference between them is significant -- (7/3/6/3/12) vs. (8/3/8/4/16) -- and my rating splits the difference.

Tingly mouthfeel with some warming alcohol. Very solid.
