Bottle, 1 liter, at RBNG-14 Grand Tasting. It pours an unclear, brown body under a small, beige head. The aroma is mostly malty, with caramel, dark bread and some piney hops. Some alcoholic notes in the flavor, with caramel, roasted malts and a pleasant bitterness. Pretty warming on the palate, full-bodied and sweet, with a nice carbonation level. Lasting, warming finish. Overall, way too warming, but it’s nice anyway. Sweet and caramel-ish. Like it. 140215

Boutip (5362) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 12, 2013
Bottle: Poured a hazy brown color ale with a generous foamy head with great retention and some good lacing. Aroma consists of rich caramelized sugar with some fruity notes. Taste is also dominated by superb caramelized sugar notes with some fruity notes and some warming alcohol notes. I had a harder time finding notes of juniper and the barrel-aging presence was really balanced and mixes in well with the caramelized malt. Body was quite full with great carbonation and light warming alcohol notes were perceptible.

0.33l swingtop bottle from trade with MisoW. Bug thanks! It’s not gushing, but popping the cap gives a scary loud POFF, and leaving it on the table for a while, it eventually wants out of the bottle. It has a massive kinda dirty brown dense head on top of really deep dark amber brown body. When the head has settled down a few minutes later the aroma gives away lots of wood sour aromas. A bit of licorice also detected, as is dark malts, a little bit of cocoa powder, sweet port, dark berries and a earthy form for bitterness. Oh, it’s definitely on its way to a infection this. Lots and lots of boozy alcohol in the taste, a woody sourness and it’s really thin and almost a bit watery in the mouth. Luckily there is a a nice licorice spicy flavor shining through the clearly off-flavors. I get a good bit of anise here. Unfortunately that’s about the only thing I’m really enjoying about this one. It has lots of flavor, but I find it to be quite medicinal. That combined with a sourness that clearly don’t belong here leads to the conclusion that this is on its way to be infected. A big burning alcohol burn in the vine-sweet and wood dry finish. Cough syrup in the anise spicy aftertaste. Thanks for the bottle Misow. I really love the concept behind this beer, and I’ll hopefully get to try this again some day - preferably a non infected bottle. *Editors note* This really grows on you throughout the time it lives in the glass. Gaining room temperature and a good amount of oxygen, the acidic sourness is almost completely gone and you are left with an amazing complex vinous, sweet (yeah I know!) and just delicious flavor. I don’t think I’ve ever experienced such a growth on the enjoyment scale as this beer has gone from being a near drain-pour into something I really really want to have again. Huge thanks for this one MisoW! What a strange experience.. 12.09.2013
