4.3/5 rDev +1.7%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4
330ml bottle poured into a goblet.
i must first preface this as gulden draak on tap at my local yard house restaurant is what brought me back to drinking high quality brew.
a: pours a very dark burgandy. can't see though it and up to the light (like a lamp), you the color is a nice cherry. starts off with just shy of 1" head for me that goes down and stays as a very thin layer on top. lace galore.
s: pepper spice and malt. a good hint of banana. the alcohol does jump out of the glass ever so slightly.
t: plum/prune, cherry, and cinnamon.
m: take on sip, do a quick swish in the mouth, breathe through the nose and feel the carbonation take over your mouth. leaves the mouth spicy with a hint of chocolate and cherry.
d: a very good brew. easy to drink and the complexity hides the high alcohol content.
now, to compare vs. on tap: there is more carbonation for the bottle serving vs. tap. overall, this brew is more "mellow" on tap making it even more drinkable. tonight, i know i'll only have two bottles but, when on tap, i can easily take down 4 in a matter of a few hours.
enjoy and cheers!
