33 cL bottle at ZBF2011. Pours hazy dark brown with a small tan head. Aroma is roasted malty and slight breadish. Light caramelish. Sweet, mild roasted and light spiced to yeasty. Bitter and dark roasted finish. Rather carbonated. BigMomma (242) - Leuven, BELGIUM - MAR 5, 2011
UPDATED: APR 19, 2011 15cl tasting at ZBF’11 from a 33cl bottleJorisPPattyn (10001) - Ursel, BELGIUM - FEB 19, 2011
Pours a dark red color with a beige head.
Aroma of slight vinegar sourness in the begin evolving to a cacao, espresso aroma. Taste is sour at first immediately followed by a roasted malt flavor that proceeds to a dry espresso finish.
A decent balanced brew.
Huge, dense beige head over fully hazy mahogany beer. Dry-woody aromatic nose, dry bark spices. Spicey taste, even medicinal, and strange herbs. Further more wood, and some hints at both alcohol and wheat. Retronasal I get hazelnut oil. More sweet than bitter, but warming up, it develops an outspoken sourish, lactic streak that keeps growing. Medium bodied at least, quite slick and CO²-champenoise feel. Bit seriously spice beer; but totally different from the habitual Glühwein spices. Better than homebrew, but the sourness worries me.
