3.48/5 rDev -8.9%
look: 3 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5
375ml bottle, corked and caged. Date on front says 2007 and a date on the side said 01 05 10 so I assume that's a best by date. This one might be a little old then, but let's see how it held up.
Clear, lightly syrupy looking amber beer. No head developing, just a pencil thin ring of fine bubbles. The smell is intensely ripe with estery banana fruit, raisin and caramel sweetness. The alcohol is hidden in there too.
The taste has a dull tangy sweetness that tries to be salvaged at the finish as it dries out with slight bitterness. The raisin and banana fruit character is dominating but not as overwhelming as the aroma suggested. After a few sips I start to appreciate the ripened flavor of this brew. It hasn't oxidized any, and the carbonation is still sharp despite the mouthfeel being a bit thin. It's been aged to taste almost like a barleywine, yet isn't as strong in alcohol. I would guess it's about a year past it's peak, and I imagine a little more heat would given it the depth it's lacking.
An interesting find. Would have like to try this awhile back when it was new.

Eisenbahn runs a homebrewing contest similar to what Samuel Adams does in the US, whereby the winner gets its brew made for the market. `The Lady of the Lake´, developed by Rio de Janeiro homebrewer Leonardo Botto, won the first contest over a year ago, so this bottle has some age on it. I shared the bottle with my friend. 375 ml green corked and caged bottle consumed at the Bierkeller, on to the beer:
Chocolate brown color. The aroma is huge....it´s full of raisins, brown sugar, a touch of fruit, and a faint breath of alcohol. Surprisingly, there is no alcohol felt when it is tasted. Dark fruit and raisins are the biggest component of the flavor. It leaves a little bitterness at the end. The light carbonation and good body gives this beer a lovely feeling in the mouth.
I like what Eisenbahn is doing with this `homebrew contest´. Their newest contest winner `Joinville Porter´ is out on the market too, but at R$23 (both varieties) for the 375 ml bottle, it´s a very high price to pay for the priviledge.
