corkyrory66 (1623) - BELGIUM - MAR 23, 2016
Bire non plus 9 % abv, comme indiqu sur le site, mais 8,5 %. Non refermente. Mon exemplaire avait 6 mois en plus que sa date limite. Couleur roux auburn, la clart nette. Bulles moyennes, parses, peu nombreuses. Mousse qui est un nappage brun clair de surface. Armes de malt cara, candi, caramel, un peu de baies noires. 1re bouche souple lensemble malt cara et candi, avec quelques fruits mrs. Arrire-bouche quilibre, mais dun niveau modeste. 2me assez agrable, mais un peu doucereuse. Arrire-bouche la personnalit pas trs affirme. 3me un peu plus affirme, comme en rponse ma remarque!! Arrire-bouche la fois fruite et boise. La longueur ne confirme pas cette 3me bouche, elle est plus indfinie. Jambes modestes. Alcool qui ne fait pas son niveau, il ne travaille pas sur la longueur. Finale linaire. CONCLUSION: que faisait le Keizer Karel avec cette rouge rubis?? Il attendait quon lui serve la blonde ...
