Saeglopur (1612) - Vienna Woods, AUSTRIA - JAN 9, 2016
341 ml bottle shared by Werckmeister, thanks!
Black body, with a medium, dense, coffee-colored head.
Aroma of chocolate, orange, citrus, biscuit, some coffee, some pine.
Tastes of coffee, dark chocolate, citrus, orange, resin, some pine, cocoa, some liquorice, slight tobacco.
Medium, creamy mouthfeel, with a moderate carbonation.
Finishes roasty, bitter, zesty, a bit resinous, with cocoa, coffee, liquorice, some tobacco.

Very nice. I was expecting even a bit more, but still an enioyable BIPA, with all the typical elements of this style. Maybe not the most unique one, not among the best style examples I’ve had.

341ml bottle at home shared with Saeglopur. According to the Importers Sticker bottled on 27.04.2015. black color, small dark coffee-colored head. smells coffee, licorice, a bit musty, creamy, cocoa powder, not too much noticeable anymore of the hops on the smell, a bit medical. still good smell though. full body, medium carbonation, slick mouthfeel. tastes of licorice, coffee, bit citric, some ash, a bit pukeish, coffee grounds, toasted malts, some roast, a bit soapy, medical. finishes rather roasty with notes of coffee and licorice and a bit medical. good stuff, tastes a bit oldish / medical though, probably would have been better fresh, still quite drinkable though.
