Estebanik (780) - Lublin, POLAND - OCT 24, 2016
Ciekawostka, piwo jest nalane praktycznie pod sam brzeg szyjki butelki. Piana praktycznie się nie tworzy, jeśli coś się wymusi, to bardzo szybko opada. W aromacie sporo czerwonych owoców, trochę suszonych owoców w postaci rodzynek. Generalnie jest słodko. Wychodzi lekko alkohol, ale jest bardzo z tyłu, a razem z w.w. owocami daje wrażenie słodkiego, czerwonego wina. W smaku jest oczywiście słodkie, słodowe, karmelowe, dalej czerwone owoce. Gęste, wyklejające, aż skleja usta. Wysycenia właściwie brak, co zrozumiałe. Posmak jest długi i słodki. Przy finiszu wychodzi niestety też niestety lekko alkohol. Nie jest jakiś mega nieprzyjemny, no ale jest, trzeba z kronikarskiego obowiązku o nim wspomnieć. Nie jestem jakimś wielkim fanem stylu, ale to chyba jeden z moich faworytów.

Rating #1232 - 15.08.2014 Bottle from CBI. Nut brown pour, bubbly head, not much lacing. Aroma is red wine, alcohol, pastry dough Taste is an alcoholic blast, lots of hoppy bitterness tempered with a ton of pastry malt sweetness on the palate. Just a big bold beer for flavour-lovers. Awesome.
