sebletitje (9348) - Enghien, BELGIUM - DEC 20, 2011
Sample @ Kerstbierfestival ’11 Essen. First sample from a 75cl unlabeled bottle, second was from a paper wrapped bottle which indicated bottle #202/300. Not sure if this is a second run of the original Cognac Cask. Brune foncée, col ocre. Arôme est léger avec une pointe boisée de fût, graisn et caramel, cognac donne une profile doux mais qui reste trop en retrait. En bouche, le cognac est léger et se noie un peu dans le profile plus malté de la bière. Malt grillé léger, laissant un côté grains; froment/avoine. Le tout conserve une pointe d’amertule houblonnée. Un peu décevante car j’aurias aimé voir le Cognac jouer un meilleur rôle.
