Beersiveknown (5148) - NORTHERN IRELAND - DEC 11, 2012
Grey-brown with fluffy pale tan and subtle earthy spicy blackcurrants and dusty yeast. Medium carbonation, tart blackcurrant, a touch of spearmint perhaps. A spike of anise like licorice before the dry roast barley kicks in for the long finish. Its subtle but flavourful.

Koromfekete, olajos testű ital egy tejsznszerű, bzs sznű habftyollal a tetejn, ami idővel kiss sszeesik ugyan, de mindvgig megmarad krmes, vkony fedlknt a srn. Illata fanyar, enyhe vadon termett gymlcss rnyalattal, amit egy prklt malts, kvs aroma lel krl. A szavatossgi idő leteltt kvetően joggal merl fel a krds, hogy az adott pillanatban rezhető jellemvonsokat a sr termszetnek, vagy az idő vasfognak szmljra rjuk inkbb, mindenesetre az illatban is tetten rhető savanyks jelleg hatrozottan szerephez jut az zben is. Az ecetes, savas krnyezet rvnyeslni hagy nmi bogys gymlcss, ha gy tetszik feketeribizlis hatst is, melyet sszessgben egyre kevsb tallunk erőltetett hasonlatnak, az idő mlsval leginkbb ezzel az sszetevővel kikvezett plyn haladnak a sr zbli jellemvonsai. Ha elvonatkoztatunk a szavatossgi krdskrtől, s az zhats tern tapasztalt krlmnyeket a hozzadott komponensek szmljra rjuk, gy egy rendkvl rdekes karakter megtesteslsnek lehetnk tani, melyben a leginkbb az utzben rvnyeslő feketeribizli jelenlte remek ellenslyt alkot a kvs-malts, pirtott zjegyekkel szemben. Az sszetevők kztt hivatkozott desgykr sajtossgai szmomra tkletesen ismeretlenek, az angol sz medvecukorknt trtnő azonostsnak helytllsgval szemben pedig az nizsos felhangok hinya breszt ktsget, gy ezen alkotelemről hitelesen nyilatkozni nem igazn tudok. Valamit azonban biztosan hozzad a főzet tartalmhoz, mert egybknt egy rdekes, tetszetősen jszerű zvilg mutatkozik meg benne.
