Possibly 2010 Vintage // at the very list // this has been on the draft list for a very long at the Kulminator and for all I know it might be the same keg they have been pouring all of this time // 33 cl. draft into one of those Gordon thistle glasses // amber, dark caramel, touch ruby, completely clear, doesn’t look like that when the glass is completely full but it is very clear, solid one finger, creamy, milky head on top // smells of quite a bit of varnish, vintage malts, Gordon “alternative” malts, dark caramel, heavy winter spices blended with liquorish // taste is varnish, anis, sherry & dash furniture, Gordon “alternative” malts, dash vintage, winter cake, liquorish & winter spices, dash fruitiness // body is dry, synthetically slick, non thick, whatever those malts are dominate this // not a bad, interesting beer from Gordon, containing elements of their king of hobo wines beers but actually working into something halfway good
