corkyrory66 (1426) - BELGIUM - OCT 7, 2015
Ambrée aux herbes aromatiques de 6 % abv, brassée chez de Graal à Brakel, par les Hopjutters. Couleur ambre roux moyen, à la clarté nette. Bulles fines en colonne centrale, vives. Mousse beige clair, nappage stable à 1 mm. Arômes de malt finement grillé, herbes, fruits mûrs, bogue de châtaigne, pointe de mangue. 1ère bouche douce mais texturée, à la belle entame malt et épices. Arrière-bouche qui ressort les épices, dont la muscade, fortement. 2ème au grand ensemble malt/épices/fleurs tropicales. Arrière-bouche dense, longue, complexe. 3ème avec beaucoup de personnalité. Arrière-bouche de grande ampleur et équilibrée. Longueur qui s’oriente vers une liqueur fine, avec des touches de bois exo. Très belle et forte. Jambes fines, bien marquées. Levure précise, pointue, un peu salée, belle ligne. Alcool très efficace pour ce niveau abv, il soutient le tout de main ferme. Finale avec un élan de toute beauté. CONCLUSION : bière très originale, assez épicée, mais dont l’impression finale d’ensemble est plutôt la grande densité. Très grande bière, surtout pour des hob-byers ...

Bottle, 6%. Sweet and spicy aroma, hint of blood. Cloudy light brown colour, small yeast bits floating in it. Small off-white head. The flavour starts off sweetish, teaish and spicy. Has a little metal in the finish, but a sort of spicy metal, I guess. Better than expected.
