rodenbachvintage (199) - Roeselare, BELGIUM - OCT 30, 2017
Geen slecht donkerbruin biertje. Schuim verdwijnt als sneeuw voor de zon.
Iets te waterachtig om veel punten te scoren, maar toch een licht kruidige, kandijsuikerzoete afdronk.

Piepenhenrich (1246) - Steinbach, GERMANY - OCT 8, 2017

Color marrón oscuro, rojo sangre si le da la luz, con capa de espuma marrón de tres dedos de grosor (retención decente). Carbonatación alta visualmente. Textura oleosa y algo efervescente. Aroma a caramelo, azúcar, pasas, fruta madura. En boca entra dulce, con bastante fruta madura, azúcar, caramelo, pasas, reminiscencias de frutos secos. Final que parece que va a ser alcohólico pero no, es un final muy limpio y ligeramente amargo. Postgusto a pasas.
