Redzesloku paplašinošs miežvīns. Cukurgailīti atgādinošo iesalainumu papildina vaivariņu, priežu pumpuru un Centennial apiņu svķainais rūgtums, kurš sevī ieskauj miežvīnam atbilstošā alkohola daudzuma sīvumu. Teicams alus ilgstošai briedināšai.

"Magic Forest"
A malty barley wine with distinct caramel backbone, that evens out the high alcohol content and the resinous bitterness of wild rosemary, pine spruce and Centennial hops. Perfect for further aging.

JorisPPattyn (10062) - BELGIUM - AUG 1, 2017
Thick, cream-yellow head, stable over fully hazy dark red-brown beer. End of bottle features some awe-inspiring UFO’s. Vinous, dried red berries, chocolate, oak, loden, Christmas wreaths, fusels. Very complex, ’deep’ nose. Bitter, lots of chocolate, bit of resin, eggnog; again this X-mas wreath idea, berries on alcohol; and a just slightly acidic lining in the finish. And despite all these fireworks, the beer remains balanced! After some time, it starts finishing a tad wry. Rich, alcoholic-hot, smooth and yet good carbonation. This is an absolutely GREAT (G**, has that word been hollowed out by that joker in Washington!!) beer! 8/4/8/4/18
