Flaska frn Belgiuminabox. Gyllenbrun vtska, klar men med bottensediment. St doft av kandisocker, torkad frukt och st mrkt brd. Lite abt-liknande kvaliter med dina sta fruktiga och brdiga smaker med vlintegrerad stma och alkohol som vrmer fint. Riktigt trevlig utan att n hela vgen.

sulawang (1116) - - DEC 20, 2016
Visual: Pours dirty reddish brown with a 1cm head, 2mm super foamy retention, clusters upon clusters of fast active micro streams. Delectable.

Nose: brown sugar+candi sugar, date barley malt, prune. (lvl-9)-pungency

Attack: thick-crisp, creamy

Mid-palate: alcoholic heavy, (lvl-8-sweetness), dates, molasses-bready barley malt

Finish: nutmeg exhale, off dry woody hops, residual toasted barley malt

Summary: The barley malt-date flavour is decently interesting with some spice notes to that travel alongside it. The alcoholic heaviness detracts from the experience, but in the end you get a creeper buzz. The quality and richness are there although Id rather try something else next session.
