COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Brewed since the beginning of last century, when the near-complete staff of the brewery went to see the circus of Buffalo Bill, leaving the boiling brewing kettle to the care of the youngest employee. This boy let the beer roast and caramelise on the bottom of the kettle, but after trying, everybody actually liked the "spoiled" beer, which became the brewery’s staple diet. This Belgian version is a lot weaker than the stout exported to the USA.

Zaskoczyła mnie tak słaba ocenia tego piwa. Spróbujcie jeszcze raz. Jest palony słód, jest karmel, są śliwki, suszone owoce, dym i popiół... Wszystko jest. Chaos, ale jakże przyjemny! Jedyną wadą (!?) tego piwa może być to, że jest absolutnie nieokiełznane.

Belgian ale caramélisée, qui serait, selon la légende, encore une histoire de brassin oublié ou raté .. En s’amusant un peu, on pourrait la considérer comme une amber ale ou une brown ale puisqu’on fait référence aussi à un cirque de Buffalo Bill passant en Belgique au début du 20ème siècle ... Niveau abv de 6,5 %. Mon exemplaire était à 1 mois après sa date. Couleur caramel roux foncé, sombre, avec matières en suspension. Bulles moyennes, vives. Mousse brun clair, crémeuse, stable à 2 mm. Arômes de malt cara, gâteaux grecs au miel, crème brûlée, bruyère d’automne. 1ère bouche veloutée à la belle entame malt/fruits mûrs. Arrière-bouche dense, assez proche d’une bonne double vieillie. 2ème à la très belle texture, mais la bouche est moins élégante. Arrière-bouche qui mélange un peu les genres ! 3ème où on descend encore quelque peu dans le caractère. Arrière-bouche agréable, sans plus. Longueur nettement moins stylée, le fond des saveurs est une bouillie. Jambes huileuses, collantes en haut. Levure basique. Alcool correct au départ, puis il étouffe un peu les saveurs sur la longueur. Finale faible. CONCLUSION : une anecdote dans l’aventure de Buffalo Bill … (6/2/4/3/8)
