A good brew but not over the top great. Aroma is caramel, bread, toast. Taste is that belgian buz you get with a little oakiness. Finishes is mostly dry and pleasant. Overall, good.

Kolor: rubinowy, klarowny. Piana koloru be?owego, wysoka i przyzwoicie trwa?a. Aromat: karmel, toffee, palono??, w tle ??iwki ale mocno spieczone. Smak: przede wszystkim karmel, pó?niej palono?? i ciemne owoce ze ?liwkami na czele. Niestety akcenty owocowe ca?y czas t?umione s? palono?ci?. Goryczka nieznaczna, lekko przypalona.

GoufCustom (1411) - HONG KONG - APR 2, 2016


330ml bottle bought at Gorgeous Wine & Cigar in Yuen Long.

Looks: Translucent deep ruby red with a thin ring of yeastsedimentsless than one-quarter finger head and soapy light beige foam which fades in 30 seconds; Very good sticky lacing with active slight carbonation.

Aroma: Quite fragrant dark malt, with fair roastyness, caramel, toffee, light raisins and dark fruits, molasses, strong dark bread, yeast and thin lemon.

Taste: Mid to light sweet dark malt, with light metallic, burnt caramel, strong toast, toffee, nice molasses, strong dark bread, yeast, lemon, fair bitter hops and light grass.

Body: Mid to light body; Thin but slick palate.

Mouth Feel: Very good dark maltyness in a thin but dynamic background. Some neat roastyness with burnt caramel and chewy toffee. Strong fresh toast. Notable sweetness but in very neat notes. Dark bread and lemon to round. Very nice!

Hoppiness: thin lemon in nose. Strong lemon and grass in taste; Bitterness is light to moderate for a lasting, fair astringent sweet malty finish.

After Taste: Fairly dry. Toasty and light bitter to mouth.

Comments: This one has a light body, yet with nice dark fruit aroma, strong maltyness, dynamic caramel, toast and good dark bready taste. Sweetness is so well-controlled yet tempting. I can’t help not to like it. Highly Recommended!
