Rating #648, flaske fra Ølbutikken medbragt til julebrygsmagning 2011 af Amer

En brun, uklar øl med et godt skum fremtoner i glasset. Duftens elementer er lettere at adskille end i de andre bryg hidtil; dog er det ikke alle elementer som er lige velkomne. Duften er ret sur med ribs, citrus og mint. Smagen er ligeledes præget af mint og citrus, og er ret syrlig. Mint i øl fungerer efter min mening ikke særligt godt, men dette eksemplar var dog mere drikkeligt end noget andet jeg har prøvet der inkluderer mint. Af en eller anden grund har jeg skrevet "uklar" under karakteren for palate; om det var mine smagsløg der på daværende tidspunkt var sat ud af funktion eller alkoholen var begyndt at vise tænder skal jeg lade være usagt, men jeg husker tykkelse og tyngde som ganske gennemsnitlig.

330 ml bottle, from Ølbutikken, Copenhagen. ABV is 8%. Copper colour, clear first, hazy when the yeast is poured in. Large off-white head. Moderate but nice aroma, hints of spices and brown kandij sugar. Nice enough to drink, malts, caramel, a little spice. Okay.

fiulijn (16214) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 14, 2011
Bottle from Artisanales Bières Belges, Crissier, Switzerland
As soon as opened the bottle starts gushing quickly; only half of the bottle contant reaches the glass, with a cloudy dark amber color. Medium intensity for the caramel aroma, while the caramel flavor is stronger; there is enough sweetness to make a round body, some candi sugar, too much carbonation, and a delicate spicy touch. The final has some light chocolate too. Quite good.
Earlier Rating: 1/20/2008 Total Score: 3.3
Nice red-amber color; big head. The malty aroma has a fruity touch. The flavor is basically caramel, a dark and quite bitter quality. Ordinary.

IrishBoy (3926) - Bakersfield, California, USA - JUN 24, 2011
330 ml bottle (bb 09/2013) from a Belgian Christmas Sampler Pack at Bevmo Salinas. Nose is caramel, cloves, yeast, and a hint of red wine. Very lightly hazy copper with a medium beige head. Flavor is a bit vegetal, with bitter, and caramel notes. Not a great BSA!

Was ABT beer of the month in december 2010. Had it from tap. Nice winterbeer. Tastes a bit better than it smells. Not too hard to drink.

Bottled@The 2nd ES/CS Beer Tasting. (thanks GV!). Murky rubyish brown colour with a mediumsized fluffy off-white head. Aroma is sweet fruits, some spices and sweet malts. Flavour is the same along with some alcohol. Nicely balanced, but rather thin palate for being 8 %.

Draught@Kerstbierfestival, Essen. Amber colour, small beige head. Aroma is a lot of red berries. Flavour is red berries, some spices and yeast. Different brew!
