COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Batch 9 is de eerste waarbij gebruik is gemaakt van Malbecwijnvaten afkomstig uit Cahors. Deze wijn valt op door het zeer hoge tanninegehalte afkomstig uit de Pinot Noir druif welke de donkerste en meest tanninerijke wijndruif is. Doordat deze wijndruif echter zeer gevoelig is wordt zij weinig meer geteeld maar heeft een heel eigen karakter. Door onze quadrupel op deze wijnvaten te laten rijpen komen veel smaakassociaties uit deze wijn in het gelagerde bier terug. Omdat het gelagerde bier uit deze vaten toch al zo rijkelijk aan smaak is hebben we voor deze batch het percentage nieuw eiken teruggeschroefd tot 14%. Hierdoor is de houtsmaak en uit hout komende aroma’s iets minder maar komt het mooie wijnboeket van de Malbecwijn des te beter door.

Batch 9 is the first batch in which use is made ​​of Malbecwijnvaten from Cahors. This Quad is characterized by very high tannin from the Pinot Noir grape which the darkest, most tannic wine grape. Because this grape is very sensitive, however they have little more grown but has its own character. Our quadruple this wine casks to mature taste associations come from this wine in the back bearing beer. Because the bearings from the beer barrels already so rich in flavor, we have for this batch is the percentage of new oak reduced to 14%. This makes the wood flavor and aromas coming from wood but is slightly less beautiful bouquet of the wine Malbecwijn all the better.

Hazy dark amber - brown beer. Tidy pale cream coloured head. Palate is softish and slightly dry. Mildly fine carbonation. Soft oak with a little vanilla. Mellow sweet bubblegum. Touch of sweet wine. Finishes smooth and semi dry. All the flavours are well balanced and come together very well. One of the better in this series. Drinks well below it’s abv.

yngwie (14166) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - MAY 10, 2013
Bottle, 375ml corked. A rather flat one, no head, and with a more or less clear, dark brown body. Some caramel in the aroma, with hints of oak, as well as alcohol, dried fruits and some vinous hints. A faint hint of chocolate and vanilla. The flavor has a nice sweetness, with dried fruits, caramel, alcohol and some choclate and vanilla. Full body, warming and soft on the palate. Lasting finish with caramel, some vanilla and quite a lot of vinous notes. Chocolate too. A quite pleasant one, but lacks a bit. 130510
