kerstbierfestival essen 2019
375 ml. bottle. Mahogany dark amber, clear, big lacing beige head. Nose is massive oak vanilla candy coating overripe apple, maple, syrup de Liège, oak is explosive coating with the toffee, maple, apple,… Sharper in body and taste than expected, toffee, caramel, maple, syrup de Liège upfront, oak vanilla, finishing in heavy slightly bitter oak, barrel in the back, ending short sharp barrel, somewhat bitter oak, wine leaves, interesting that bitterness & bit less vanilla than expected, very tasty & quite complex, really great stuff.
