11.2 oz. bottle poured into a Farnam House Brewing snifter. Best before 18:09:2018. Code 14:21:06 I’m assuming means the bottled on date.

Ap: Pours two fingers of fluffy bone colored head with an audibly loud fizzing. The head just slides down the glass and leaves no lacing. Body is a hazy reddish brown with lots of carbonation bubbles. Looks good for the style. Head is quite persistent and eventually just ends as a thick film with sudsy lacing.

Sm: Earthy sweet bubblegum with a spicy/sweet apple, cinnamon and clove bite. Gentle baking spices combine with a brown sugar type malt backbone towards the finish. Well built nose that lets you know you’re in for a treat.

T: Starts with sweet bubblegum and fleshy cherries/dried fruit before leading into a whole ride of soft baking spices and yeast esters. The malt build is one of toasted grains, fresh dark bread and brown sugar. Leaves an aftertaste of chocolate and cherries with a rosey alcohol presence that brings to mind cognac.

Mf: Lots of prickly and fizzy carbonation with a medium body. It’s hard to say, but I almost feel like the high carbonation almost makes the body seem a little too aqueous/light. Dry, digestible finish which keeps the beer from being too sweet. Alcohol is felt as light and perfume like.

Overall: Textbook example of the style (dubbel/BSD) and it’s easy to see why it would rise to the top of the list. Well built across the board with excellent interplay between bubblegum sweetness, spice, and bready malts. What makes this beer stick out to me is the toasty, bready malt finish with the residual sweetness of cherries and chocolate. It also helps that the beer is not too sweet like others in the style. I made the mistake of serving this too cool at 50 degrees. Serve just slightly chilled instead.

So, hm, what to say. I've gotten to the point where I don't really dig malt bombs without something else to keep my interest. This is a good beer, obviously, but it just doesn't have anything to balance out the sweet maltiness and that isn't my thing.

Bottle from Mega Image (Romania). Probably too old.
