Vestergaard (2089) - Aarhus C, DENMARK - MAY 19, 2015
Tap at CBC15! Pours a semi-clear dark brown with a small, off white head. Aroma has sugary, syruppy sweet caramel and cane sugar. Very sweet and very little barrel character. Taste is very sweet as well, but with a bit of tobacco, some more fruity notes and a hint of sweet apple brandy, but in general a little too sugary. Had higher expectations for this one.
