sebletitje (7473) - Enghien, BELGIUM - APR 5, 2015
Bouteille 33cl de Malt Attacks, BB 31/12/2014. Brune foncée, presque noire, col épais crémeux moka laissant un léger doré au verre. Arôme met de suite l’accent sur les notes douces du lactose. Ces dernières sont ponctuées par le bouquet distinct, mais timide, du cèdre qui apporte des effluves épicées et boisées. Ayant Cigar City comme exemple, le cèdre reste plus mitigé dans son usage. La malt chocolaté et le cacao arrivent à percer en rétro. Palais est profond au niveau malté avec un fini sec au palais attirant l’attention sur l’effet boisé du cèdre. Ce dernier reste présent tout en étant un peu plus discret dans sa complexité. On retrouve un fini épicé lié au boisé typique du cèdre. Le chocolat est également présent avec une petite note amer sur la fin. Le lactose reste également bien présent ajoutant un fini adouci et typique, ce dernier se mariant bien au côté plus sec du cèdre.

Flaska från SB. Smak och doft av choklad, rostad malt, karamell, kakao, trä med toner av torkad frukt. Rund och len, lagom sötma, lätt syrlighet, beska med smak av bitter mörk choklad. Mycket elegant.
