bierkoning (13055) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - JUN 24, 2011
2010 bottle from Jrallen, thanks! Dark brown color. Grapes, grassy hops, porto and bourbon in the aroma. Sugary sweet, alcoholic flavor with lots of bourbon and oak. Well hopped. Citrus notes. Good complexity, enough to compensate the sweetness and even the massive amounts of alcohol.
