henrikb (1261) - Aarhus, - AUG 8, 2009
Bottle - Extremely beautiful deep deep black red body, with a very right big bubbled beautiful head; Extremely beautiful, very deep and clear nose, the very ripe sweet black currant notes mixes perfectly with the drier deeper baking yeast, dry oak notes, big and strict; Very very sour body, a strange mix that I have never experienced before, a strange mix of malic warm and tartaric acids, velvet soft textured and actually quite full, very interesting; The very long finish starts with this strange acid mix as well, here quite biting almost warm acetic and then not acetic at all, not the acid of sour currant either but properly an interesting mix of them all, the aromas lasts to and changes pleasantly from dry fresh oak to ink later with the ripe black currant added. Very interesting beer. Thanks!
