COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Joint effort between Kuhnhenn and Dragonmead. This is the 4th batch since we started on this joint venture in 1999. This goliath, 33 plato made with Pilsner, Vienna, and Munich Malts; Hallertauer Mittelfruh and Hallertauer Tradition hops is quite extraordinary.

GTMW Dark copper colored pour, no real head some visable carbonation. Huge palate very rich and creamy. Very sweet flavor lots of sugars some caramel and light notes of dark fruits some sweet grains.. hard to describe its sooo sweet, but good. Sweet aroma so many sugars and fruits. alcohol is well hidden.. it’s sweet done to death.

GTMW ’08. Poured a clear copper color with a light tan head. Smelled of light alcohol, caramel, and subdued toffee. Sweet and full bodied with buttery caramel, fleshy fruit (especially pear), and alcohol. Better than average, but not a show-stopper for me.

Great Taste. I tried a few small samples of the Dragonmead beers I had not had before, and this was by far and away the finest. The complexity blew away their Final Absolution and Bourbon Wee Heavy. Poured a mahogany red, something akin to Capital’s Eispheyre, with notes of candied sugar, honey, nutmeg, brown sugar, fig, date, creme brulee, with a viscous mouthfeel and a sweet finish. I would say this is right up there with the Livery’s take on the style, and possibly better than their non barrel aged triple bock. Excellent stuff; a highlight of the festival for me.
