adster (713) - HUNGARY - DEC 3, 2016
14,1 %-os főzet a 2013-as old ale, ez a két adat már megfelelő alap lehet a bizakodáshoz, ha egy kivételes italban reménykedünk. Jeges tea színű teste szinte hab nélkül fejlődik, láthatóan a pezsgős dugótól történő megszabadítását követően sem indult meg a sör. Illataitól valósággal hátrahőkölhetünk, elementáris bourbon aromák robbannak szét a levegőben. Ázott tölgyhordó, de nem akármilyen, olajos gabonapárlatok puhította fadongák karaktere áthatolhatatlan illatréteget alkot, melybe zabolázhatatlan alkoholos jegyek szövődnek a meggymagos, mandulás, marcipános likőrök emlékét is megidézve. A test élénk, brutálisan alkoholos, valószínűleg a szerkezet jellegéből adódóan üt át jobban a szeszes hangulat, de kárára semmiképpen nem válik az italnak, ugyanis a karakter erre van kitalálva, megfelelő a terep a csípős, melengető elemek letaglózó szerepléséhez. Vanília, karamell, borókabogyó, szárított-cukrozott paradicsom, kevés áfonya és alma erjesztett jegyei fonódnak egybe a masszív, whiskys lenyomat súlya alatt, követhetetlen sokszínűséggel, minden figyelmet magához ragadó vadsággal, lenyűgöző összetettséggel. Meghálálja, hogy kiszabadult a palackból, egyszerinek és megismételhetetlennek tűnik a felejthetetlen szereplés.

500ml bottle from Systembolaget, vintage 2013. Hazy mahogany, particles floating around in the glass, fizzy tan head that eventually disappears completely without leaving any lacing. Rich and rounded bourbon aroma, oak, dark dried fruit and vanilla. Full-bodied, soft carbonated, silky and chewy mouthfeel. Soft rounded malty, warming bourbon taste, dried fruit, figs, vanilla, woody, oak and a hit of tobacco. Solid barrel aging with a warming finish that lingers.
