A fantastic wine-barrel-aged Baltic porter, brewed at http://www.pernstejn.cz
The basis beer definitely is their Pardubický Porter (Boom) 19°, which is made of the highest-quality raw materials by a well-tried technology.
Extended maturing time guarantees delicious bitterness and balanced taste.
Ingredients: drinking water, 4 sorts of barley malts, sugar, refined hops, hops extract.
Dalího Vykulenec 19 has aged on red wine-barrels, and this clearly could be tasted.
First, one needs to remove the sealing wax.
Uncorking is the message, after the wax was removed. Quite a fun occupation.
By the way, that cork was quite small really.
No plop-sound, which already told me that the beer wasn’t that carbonated.
And indeed, when pouring, I needed to pull for obtaining a foam layer.
Nosing immediately gave me those winy woody flowery flavours.
Tasting gave a lot of bitter roastiness, and a very wild-yeasty funky touch.
Alot of tannins there, which gave the beer a very dry finish.
Somehow this "dark to black" beer gave alot of similarities with the Oerbier reserva range.
Quite similar, but somehiow lacking some body and perfect foam retention.
This beer is 9 vol% strong, but that alcohol was quite hidden.
A bit of lactic sourness was noticed too. Must have evolved during the wine barrel ageing, and gave the beer also that Rodenbach feeling about it, although the roast bitterness is the main difference here.
Quite a stunning beer !!!!!!!! petexner (935) - CZECH REPUBLIC - JAN 20, 2014
Bottle. Very interesting experience. Black, no head, wine palate, woody taste. I enjoy that.
