4.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Got this in the closeout bin at Vaudree in Liege for 1e (can’t figure out why - - the date punched is July ’13). Zesty, bright fizzy texture like well-fermented apple cider, and then the hops hit hard & deep, and then a sourness kicks in, with just the slightest hint of sweetness (sweetness is why I mostly avoid brunes, but this is more a hoppy sour beer). Very lively on the palate - - it just dances all over the place. This is a super tasty and really fun beer. I wish I had bought the whole close-out binful (but I already had over 40 bottles to haul back in my luggage to Germany).
Bottle at De Heeren van Liedekercke, shared with Anke and Pieter.SylvainCFC (372) - Brussels, BELGIUM - JUN 13, 2017
Pours cloudy dark brown (almost black) with a small, off-white head. The aroma contains brown sugar, caramel, dark chocolate, licorice, malt, some spices. It tastes medium to heavy sugary sweet (and this does not contain candi sugar?) and light spicy bitter. Some warming alcohol. Medium body, slick/sticky texture, fizzy carbonation. Remarkable how this doesn't become really cloying, but remains quite tasty.
Une robe brun foncé, opaque. Un col de mousse très court, écumeux, beige. Nez très lacté, chocolat au lait, glace vanille, notes légère de fruits secs. Bouche très fidèle au nez avec une dominance de chocolat au lait, cocoa très forte. Caramel, toffee. Très légère amertume houblonnée en soutien d’une bouche ample, douce, gourmande. Texture assez épaisse, presque laiteuse. Alcool très masqué. Brune très ronde, gourmande, dessert au chocolat, mais pas sur le sucre candi ni les fruits confits.
