Appearance -Pours black with a thick brown head.
Aroma -Intense cinnamon, cocoa and coffee are followed by nutmeg and peppers. As the beer warms up, the flavor combinations evolve and the cocoa and vanilla notes really start to open up.
Taste - Cocoa and cinnamon are at the forefront. The coffee, nutmeg and vanilla follow, and the fruitiness and heat of the pasilla peppers come through nicely on the finish.
Palate - Full bodied and very smooth with a light bitterness. The sweetness adds a lot to this beer without being too syrupy.
The bright gold Augustiner Edelstoff has understated notes of cut grass, herbs, and sweet malts that are balanced by a moderate bitterness. Its light body and delicate carbonation lead to a smooth mouthfeel that still finds a way of being crisp and lingering with a fantastically clean finish.
The recipe of this hazy India Pale Ale is as playful as the Belgian shepherd dog. We combine late and dry hopping with a unique yeast that complements fruity hoppy flavors. In true Belgian tradition, we do not filter the beer and do a secondary fermentation in the bottle to maximize all the goodness. The combination of these techniques create a natural haze and silky smooth taste.Belgenius
