Berna (16) - Buenos aires, ARGENTINA - SEP 5, 2016
Color cobrizo oscuro turbio. Buena espuma, baja retencion. Aroma algo metalico, maltoso, frutal y dulce. Sabor maltoso, caramelo, nueces y lupulo herbal. Cuerpo medio a ligero. Final alcoholico (calienta la boca) y levemente seco. Cerveza compleja pero me la bajo mucho el aroma metalico y el final tan alcoholico.

Bierdimpfe (349) - Quebec, CANADA - SEP 5, 2016
Veiled dark copper color with a low amount of activity. Creamy and foamy, well defined, light brown 2 finger head, lasting around 10 minutes, with some very good leggings. Faint aromas of booze, burnt sugar, ginger, bread and butter. Flavors of ester fruits like apple, berries, and grapes with some ginger bread feel and peppercorn, roasted grains with a wood feel and herbal spices. Highly sugary but with a strong bitterness. Slick full body with prickly carbonation. Medium to strong finish, ending with a vinous fruity earthy feel and lingering herbal spices with some ginger. Thick sugary feel of bubblegum. Overall a little above average in quality having decent flavors that I find slightly off, and its missing some freshness from a highly boozy, but warming feel. Although well spiced and well balanced, its a little flat and very acidic.
