KombatAle (129) - New Brunswick, - MAY 15, 2014
33 cl bottle From Etre Gourmet beershop Cloudy copper with white foam, not very persistent. Aroma is full of fruits, spices, brown sugar, alchool, toasted oak and red fruits. Sippy mouthfeel, full in body. Taste is warm with red fruits, burnt brown sugar, caramel, toasted oak, vanilla, sweet spices, warm end and dry but fruity aftertaste. In the same way of Tjeeses Reserva. Supposed that they are italians, why not in wine barrels?
