dorain (647) - Berlin, GERMANY - NOV 6, 2017
Aus der Flasche (Version 2009) am 2016-07 getrunken. Das saure Struise hatte es sehr eilig ins Glas zu kommen, aber dieses hier wartete ja seit 2009 bzw. 2013 nach seine Barrel Aged Tour endlich getrunken zu werden. Durch die 2 Jahre Bourbon Faßreifung hat es deutlich mehr Eichennoten bekommen und weniger Frucht als das Ypres Reserve 2011 mit seinen 4 Jahren BA Bourgogne. Daher liegt dieses wunderbare Sour (Black) Brown für mich ein Tack hinter seinen Bruder Reserve 2011.

Garrold (5606) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JUN 15, 2017
Bottle, shared at Little Leeds Beer House. Mucky, reddy brown. Halo of beige head. Nose has sherry. Nuts. Ripe vine fruit. Oak. Taste doesn’t live up unfortunately. It’s a bit papery and old. Medium body, with a surprising amount of carbonation. Nutty, fruity bitter finish. Past it’s prime, I think.

Aspetto: marrone scuro, schiuma abbondante, marroncino dorata, fine e decisamente persistente. Aroma: agrodolce, cacao e caramello. Intenso e delizioso. Gusto: buonissimo agrodolce, anche se non molto intenso. Si sentono anche abbondanti caramello e soprattutto cacao. Carbonizzazione e corpo. Buonissima birra!
