Dominus® Double

I like Patrizier 2. It's a funny game. You usually start as a merchant and have to make your way up to become a Patrizier by trading with other towns. In the beginning you get one ship to travel from your home town. Most of the time I deal with, you might guess it, beer. I get it in Belgium / Bremen / Hamburg and sell it in Edinburgh. You can sell gallons of beer there. Some other routes include Denmark and Visby. You also have to go to the church in order to donate beer or money.

Where the game ends reality starts. I opened a bottle of Dominus which was 2 month over its best before.

"First things first" as I often hear. Lets take a nose full of Dominus. It smells acetic, catty like, alcoholic, malty, esters and fruits and somehow stale. From that point I normally wouldn't drink it but god knows what people do for fame, glory & money.

It is sour, definitely - and there is alcohol, as well as an unpleasant bitterness.

Next time I get a fresh one.
