Bierdimpfe (612) - Quebec, CANADA - JAN 31, 2017
Almost opaque black color with a faint copper hue and dense activity. Creamy light brown 2 finger head, lasting around 10 minutes, with good legs. Flavors of mocha, dark berries, cherries, walnuts, caramel, molasses, liquorice, peppercorn, vanilla, herbal spices. Highly sweet of ester fruits, reminiscent of a barleywine feel, while sharp and bitter from roasted malts. Creamy and silky medium body with crispy carbonation. Strong finish but well intensified, dry and chalky while still pleasant, a hint of wood, grassy hops and earthy spices. Quite robust but still pretty fresh, although a bit alcoholic and acidic. Very good taste and a superb finish. Overall excellent quality craft, complex and nicely balanced.
