Bouteille 330 ml Couleur : Rougeâtre aux reflets plus foncés. Petite carbonation et petite effervescence. Arômes : C’est d’abord et avant tout sucré au nez. On détecte le sucre d’orge et des arômes de cassonade. L’alcool est aussi assez présent au nez de même qu’un côté assez fruité. Goût : En bouche c’est surtout l’alcool qu’on goûte. Un peu une déception, parce que je détecte pas grand chose d’autre que le gout du 8%. Avec quelques gorgées, on parvient à trouver un petit arrière-goût fruité. Appréciation : Un manque de complexité. D’autres dubbels parviennent à avoir beaucoup plus de profondeur que celle-ci. Trop alcoolisé.

Kauge (1530) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - MAR 10, 2016
Bottle from Alcostock in Tallinn harbour (€ 2.79). BB 06.2017. Pours clear, caramelly brown with a big beige head. The aroma is sweet of caramel, cinnamon, indistinct dark fruits, later on just malty. Tastes sweet with quite some bitterness, but on the downside, some alcohol coming through too... Nearing dry on the palate, medium body, moderate to thin carbonation. It’s pretty nice overall. However I doubt ever returning to this...

Birra che giá a livello olfattivo fa capire cosa andrai ad assaggiare; Gusto unico con una frizzantezza caratteristiche e non fastidiosa. Una birra con i fiocchi
