Pours from the bottle to a dark brown color with little head or lacing, but that’s all that went wrong. Nose is a very complex mix of licorice, coffee and malty toffee, but at various times, I also got bubblegum and cotton candy. Mouthfeel was very full and pleasantly biting, and the taste built on those complex scents in the nose. Although the 9.2% abv was well hidden in both the nose and taste, it made itselfd known by way of the long warming finish.
A ver enjoyable beer on a cold night.
Bottle 33cl. Small head. Opaque chestnut to deep brown. Small head. Aroma: massive caramel, syrup, fruit jam. Full body. Complex taste. Rather sweet. Let it be. Caramel & toasted malts in their best shape. Additional nuts, dried fruit. No need for hops here. Perfect. Bacchus66 (393) - South Carolina, USA - JUL 12, 2017
