This limited-edition winter brew will make its debut in October, but this winter celebration ale is worth the wait. Malted barley and chocolate tones define the traditional style, while the robust aroma and long, mellow finish will make this the perfect companion for your holiday adventures.

corkyrory66 (1394) - BELGIUM - FEB 28, 2016
Doppelbock, de la nuit hivernale islandaise. Niveau abv de 6,7 %, pour 16,3° plato … ça ne va pas casser la glace !!! Quatre malts au programme : Munich, pils, crystal, choco. Mon exemplaire avait 5 mois de bouteille. Couleur roux auburn, ŕ la clarté nette. Bulles moyennes en colonnes droites, pas trčs nombreuses mais vives. Mousse qui n’est qu’un simple nappage de surface. Arômes de caramel, lichen, cake, candi, thé de Ceylan. 1čre bouche souple, sur du malt plutôt bien grillé, houblon sec. Arričre-bouche sur du malt cara. 2čme bouche sans prégnance, malt grillé mais trčs léger. Arričre-bouche aqueuse. 3čme avec des petites touches d’épices plus intéressantes. Arričre-bouche un rien plus pleine. Longueur plus agréable, avec quelques notes originales, mais peu de consistance. Jambes fines, mais courtes. Levure un peu poivrée, ligne correcte. Alcool faible, il ne fait que souligner certaines nuances, sans rien diriger. Finale anodine, aqueuse. CONCLUSION : pas besoin que le viking se fâche sur l’étiquette, il n’aura pas grand chose pour naviguer ce soir … Des broutilles pour rennes, tout au plus ...
