Served from draft into a Gulden Draak tulip, this is a dangerously wonderful beer. The Appearance is a deep ruby with a very tall, creamy off-white head that leaves a very sticky lace and nice-sized collar until then end...which I have to say, never lasts that long for me, and I've had many! The aroma is very sweet, malt and brandy, slight spice but not to complex. The taste is much deeper, initially a bit sweet and vinous, then opening into fig, toffee, prune and toasted malt, and finishing with a strong boozy kick that is a bit on the fusel side. There is not much effervescence and a nice creamy mouthfeel that is well balanced with a bit of diactly butteriness that really works well here, adding up to a very drinkable beer.
Serving type: on-tap
