PapaVillum (826) - Valby, DENMARK - DEC 27, 2015
Cognacfarvet belgisk julebryg / Belgian Strong Ale med stor tættet offwhite skumkrone, som svinder langsomt til landskaber. Rolig og filtreret. 2014-version. Aromaen indeholder noter af bær, andet tørret frugt og gær. Sødlig domineret smag med lille syrlighed og balanceret med mindre bitterhed. Tydelig alkoholvarme i smagen. Høj karbonering, som sædvane i belgiere. Stor fyldig krop og olieret til cremet konsistens. Afslutningen er bittersød, alkoholvarm og lang. Rimelig solid belgier og god, men alkoholen spiller stadig en lidt for dominerende rolle til at blive en topscorer. 33 cl, flaske, 10.0 % ABV, BB: 09/2017, købt i SuperBest i Rødovre Centrum. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

The beer looks very beautiful. The color of the beer is a nice red, with a hint of amber in it. The beer is quite clear, but some cloudiness can be seen. The beer pours a thick frothy layer of foam. A adequate thick layer of soft foam remains on top of the beer. The color has a slight yellow tint. The beer doesnt have a extremely strong smell. The smell there is, is nice though. The smell is sweet and has a nice bitterness. It is mainly fruity. I smell some banana. I cant clearly distinguish all the different aromas, but the smell is very nice. There might be a hint of raisin. In the distance you can smell the alcohol aroma. The smell gives a soft warm sensation. The taste of the beer is very nice as well. The beer gives a creamy mouth sensation. The beer has a strong alcohol taste (not surprising). Furthermore the taste is bittersweet. The sweetness is nice and strong and is very fruity. I taste banana, and also almonds. The bitternes of the beer forms a nice balance with the strong fruity sweetness. The carbonation of the beer is just right. All in all, a delicious christmas brew.
