Autumn time is Kupfer Bock time
Kupfer Bock, aged in three different barrels
AGED IN THE BOURBON BARREL
We detect subtle whiskey notes, roasted aromas, and a hint of vanilla, along with dried fruits, namely prunes, apricots, and raisins. The first sip begins with a light, fine, bubbliness. In the mouth, it quickly becomes opulent, sweet at first, reminiscent of crème caramel, but ends dry. Now the bourbon ageing is clearly evident: whiskey, peat, and some tobacco. Warming. Very good quaffability. Very fine digestif. It also goes very well with strong and creamy cheese. Or a cigar.
AGED IN THE SINGLE MALT BARREL
Dark brown with reddish copper reflections, plus a typical fine beige head. This type of ageing smells of light caramel with orange peel and dried strawberry. A delicate touch of rosewater. The initial sip has fine-beaded bubbles as usual. Then on the palate hints of white chocolate and a little coffee. In a warming finish once again extremely attractive sherry flavours, dry and dense. Goes very well with delicate, not too sharp cheese and light desserts.
AGED IN THE SHERRY BARREL
Dark brown body with a fine beige head. This malt finish has the pleasant scent of a biscuit dipped into coffee. Beyond that, it reminds one of marzipan and dark cherry. The first sip is creamy and soft. It is supported by a light-hearted bitterness, succinct roasted aromas, some wood, and tobacco. The beer has an exemplary character, dry and clear; straightforward and without frills. A light smoky aroma emerges in the aftertaste – we are already sitting around the crackling fire. Suitable for the Hubertusstube with its comfortable leather armchair by the fireplace.
