Gordon Xmas

33 cl bottle, Finest Belgian Beers. 28.08.22

It’s a beautiful, deep chestnut red pour with a ton of great lace left by the rich, billowing white head.

The initial nose offers wave after wave of deep, alcoholic malts, and the tastes reflects that somewhat, bu the alcohol is more in check than the nose suggests.

The maltiness breaks across the palate continuously, with a lovely, nutty profile pushing into the palate. Classically Scotch Ale, with a ton of depth, the alcohol that you need, and the richness that brings everything together. A ton of caramel malt, the sugary notes are there too. The noisy pour shows the depth, and the beer sits very brightly and boldly in the glass.

Plenty of great body, and a very satisfying brew.
