sebletitje (6341) - Enghien, - OCT 7, 2012
Bottle sample @ Cantillon Quintessence 2012. Orangée foncée, pas de bulle, légère couche huileuse dorée au verre. Arôme est malté avec des notes de caramel, barrique et un vin macéré. Palais est impressionnant pour ses 12%, note maltée vers le liquoreux, qcq notes minérales, avec un rappel liquoreux de spéculoos, je note une fine note fumée venant peut être de la barrique. Cette dernière laisse une place subtile au vin sans pour cela avoir une dominance de raisin Le houblon reste en retrait et contribue a un ajout finement amer/fruité. Ici aussi, on entre dans une dimension où la bière fuse avec les liqueurs.

Bottle. Pours light murky red with a small, creamy, beige film head. Aroma has plums, raisins, caramel, red wine, oak, figs. Vinious, but never over empowering. No carbonation, fat and oily mouthfeel. Flavour has lots of caramel, figs, grapes, oak, red wine. Fabulous balance. No alcohol power in flavour.
