Krampus is an Eastern European folk lore figure who, according to legend, punished or kidnapped children at Christmas time for their transgressions, in contrast to Saint Nicholas, who rewards the well-behaved with gifts. A scary, horned, half-goat/half-demon, Krampus was not who you wanted to invite for dinner on Christmas Eve. Krampus Dark Sour With Cherry won’t steal your children, but you might be tempted to snatch every bottle for yourself. Dark and roasty, this tart ale has a pronounced sour cherry flavour with hints of mulled wine. 500 ml, 6% alc./vol.
This is a very smooth drinking beer, but it’s fairly tart. The stout flavour comes through at the end.
This is quite acidic to my palate though. It is a unique brew. As it warms up, the acidity is softened a bit.
Nope. I was mistaken. It’s still too acidic for my taste.
Oh wow! This is just a wonderful beer! Perfectly balanced tart cherry and chocolate, with a nice fizziness on the tongue. If this is what Krampus gives to the naughty children, then I don’t wanna be nice!
You can really taste the cherry. A nice smooth drinking beer with a bite. Reminds me of a barley wine without the harshness of a high alcohol content. Back to watching the movie.
