Tmoney99 (11684) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAY 17, 2015
Bottle. Poured clear dark amber color with an average frothy off-white head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate to heavy toasted malt, alcohol and wood aroma. Medium to full body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Moderate to heavy sweet flavor with a medium to heavy sweet finish of moderate to long duration. This is a complex good beer.

I could not do a decent write up of all these separately, so I will do one and ahre it on each beer’s page. The differences between the light and medium toast version of each were so subtle that I don’t think I’d know they were different beers if I wasn’t being told so. Limo - super sweet, low level diabetes, yet really really doesn’t show the heat. Centre has just a bit more wood (and is that a hop?) that cuts through the sweetness a little more than the other two, making it my favorite ever so slightly. Troncais was back to diabetes sweet, yet all still enjoyable. These are after dinner sippers for sure, but glad to have tried them. I’ll admit I was hoping for bigger differences side by side.

500 ml bottle shared by Tmoney99. Pours a hazy dark golden/amber color with a small off white head. The aroma opens with a big woody herbal character before showing more fruit, caramel and alcohol. The flavor has much more sticky sweet caramel, ripe fruits, plums, wood, and alcohol. Perhaps a bit more toast than the light toast version, but these are so sweet and syrupy its hard to tell. I get every bit of the 19.3%. Big beer. One to share and drink slowly.
