Piwo niesztampowe i nietuzinkowe. Piana praktycznie zerowa. Ale czy to ważne gdy intensywny aromat uderza w nozdrza? Atakuje wanilią, miodem, daktylami. W aromacie rwnież brandy. Brandy tez początkowo dominuje smak. Co w cale nie przeszkadza. Wręcz przeciwnie, podkreśla, że to zawodnik wagi ciężkiej. Piwo gęste i treściwe. W smaku odrobina czekolady i suszonych owocw, fig i daktyli.,

Werckmeister (2728) - Vienna, AUSTRIA - MAR 31, 2017
12oz bottle at home. black color, very small dark coffee-colored head. smells of alcohol, sherry, liqueur, apples, nutty, marzipan, bit glueish, light sweetness. didnt like the smell at first, but after a couple minutes of breathing its very very nice. full body, light carbonation, slick mouthfeel. tastes of licorice, marzipan, nutty, vanilla, lightly liqueurish, light dried fruits, some wood, light sweetness, lightly boozy. finishes lightly sweet with notes of nuts, marzipan, liqueur and apples brandy notes. very very nice beer, a bit on the boozy side (usually not a fan), but its not distracting at all on this one. very nice balance of flavours. love it.
