wunderbier (1434) - Tampere, - JUL 17, 2011
{thoughts} Balanced, sourish flavor differs greatly from the succulent, sweet aroma.

{elements} Dark, cloudy, brown hue; short, tan froth. Intoxicatingly forceful aroma of chocolate, prunes, whisky and toasted walnuts with a hefty kick of vanilla. Moderate-heavy sweetness, moderate-heavy acidity, light-moderate bitterness; tastes something like a Belgian brown ale; sweetness is countered by a (slightly too strong) sourness; finishes with good tannic firmness. Medium-full body, lively carbonation, silky texture. 22 oz bottle @ GP Tuulensuu.

Flavor is sweet, heavy malt, dry fruit, whisky barrel, caramel and pleasant bitterness with some warming alcohol. Fine balanced body with a nice and long lasting aftertaste. A solid and well balanced one. A really nice sipper.
