sebletitje (6761) - Enghien, - JUL 15, 2013
Bouteille 33cl, BB 01/2015. Brune foncée, épais crémeux moka. Arôme malté entre chocolaté et torréfié. Pointe de fruits noirs? Houblons restent assez modérés avec qcq notes de citrons le tout oscillant plus sur le neutre de part l’effet des malts qui dominent. Le bouquet semble, sauf erreur de ma part, donner une très fine note d’acétique-levure. Palais est épais axé sur les malts. Le tout reste néanmoins assez faible pour une bière tirant 11%. Malt grillé, profil restant sec et poussiéreux avec ce fini de vieux café. Pétillance est faible avec une amertume des houblons restituant un côté citronné sur pointe de pamplemousse qui peine à percer. Je note également une petite note aigre en toute fin de bouche. Probablement du à la levure.
