Bottle. A dense, finger-thick off-white head leaves lacings as the more or less clear, dark amber to brown body slides down my throath. Yeasty, sugary aroma with prunes and some grassy, piney hops. The flavor is pretty much the same, too sugary and yeasty I think, with prunes and some caramel hints. Decent bitterness. Full body, some warmth. Pleasant carbonation. As for Wolf 7 & 8, it’s way too yeasty. Else it’s quite decent. 130516

Bottle. Cola pour with a generous mocha colored foam head. Aroma holds the middle between Speciale Belge and an abbey double. Prune, dried apricots, pepper. Licorice permeates. First sip is very metallic, copper. Subsequent sips remind of a stout, but a little fruitier (apricots, mocha, hint of coffee). Bitter, creamy development. Aftertaste is stout, prune. Ok.

Medium sweet flavor with simple doughy brown bread, mild yeast expression, toffee, dried semi-dark fruits. Medium bodied with fine carbonation. Lightly warming on the finish, lightly phenolic, more brown bread, faint grains, earth. Not bad.

caesar (5648) - Bunnik/Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - JAN 30, 2015
Bottle from Mitra Bunnik, BB Apr 2016, large sample. Slight hazy copper color, big frothy light brown head. Aroma of caramel, spicy yeast, bit peppery, coriander, bit fruity. Bit dry in taste, slight sweet, some wheat notes, high fusels, alcohol, soft bitterness. Bit high on carbonation, although it could fit the style. I was pleasantly surprised by the Wolf 7 and 8, but this one is dominated a bit too much by yeast and alcohol. Ok, but prefer the other ones.

fles 33cl kleur: amber met flinke dikke schuimkraag. geur: fruitig peer en kruidig. smaak: fruitig, en daarna scherp kruidig. Begint goed, maar de kruidige nasmaak vind ik niet geweldig. Alcoholpercentage is merkbaar hoog
