Glouglouburp (5938) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 4, 2012
In short: A rich malty burgundy beer with moderate bourbon presence. Pretty good
How: Tap at Tap-NY 2012
The look: Mostly clear light ruby-brown body topped by a beige ring of foam
In long: Nose is pecan pie, caramel, vanilla, bourbon. Taste is a bit on the sweet side, caramel pie sensation, medium bourbon presence, nutty notes of almonds, wood, some alcohol heat. More drinkable than expected which I find is often the case with a woody beer because it dries out the finish a bit. Nothing is overdone here, nothing exceptional but overall well balanced, I liked this one more than I thought I would. The last beer I rated at Tap-NY 2012 festival, I was getting pretty drunk, and after the last-call I tried explaining to the security person that I was on ratebeer and I just needed a few more minutes to rate this last beer but he didn’t leave me alone and kept asking me why I wasn’t wearing any pants.
