Danish: Denne stærke belgiske ale er så sødmefuld, at vi ikke er bange for at kalde den for rendyrket begær på flaske. Under brygningen blev stemningen så løssluppen, at brygger Jacob og brygger Morten brød ud i store mængder spontane kindkys til hinanden. Hvis ikke Thomas Schön var dukket uanmeldt op, var det sikkert ikke stoppet ved kindkyssene. Denne øl er så vellystig, at vi ikke garanterer for følgerne, hvis du serverer den for kæresten i stearinlysenes skær: det kan meget vel ende i en langvarig forsørgerpligt. Vi har brygget en øl med de mest sensuelle sukre, vi kunne finde i Netto og så har vi krydret den med velrenommerede afrodisiaka som spansk flue, østers og pulveriseret hjortepenis. Eller osse er vi bare fulde af løgn…
Vi er ikke stolte over at være syndere, men i det mindste er vi åbne omkring det...

English: This strong Belgian ale is so rich, so sweet and so luscious, that we wouldn’t hesitate calling it pure lust in a bottle. During the making of this beer the general mood in the brewhouse turned somewhat sensual if not downright erotic! And everybody involved in the brewing spontaneously engaged in heavy cheek kissing. If it wasn’t for the unexpected ring of the doorbell things could have gone even further… This beer is so lustful that we cannot vouch for the consequences if you serve this to your girlfriend over a candlelight dinner. This may very well result in a lifelong payment of child support. We have brewed a beer with the most sensual of sugars we could find at our local grocery store. We were tempted to spice it up with well-renowned aphrodisiacs like Spanish fly or oysters, but frankly we didn’t see the need for it.
We’re not proud to be sinners, but at least we’re open about it…

Pours light reddish brown with a small off white head. Clean malty aromas and a bit of fruit. Fruitier in the mouth, dried apricots, melon, crystal malt, cane sugar. Full flavoured, ok balance. Would have been a better beer if it was less sweet, but still enjoyable.

Vignale (3375) - Malmö, SWEDEN - OCT 23, 2016
Flaska från SB där BBD är passerat med ett drygt år. Jag tror den är minst tre år gammal. Mörk och fortfarande väldigt söt. Mörkt socker, sirap, söta russin och fikon. Kanske väl söt men trevliga smaker och fin till en ostbricka.

Bottle. Pours dark golden with a medium tan head. Aroma is packed with chocolate, sugar, caramel. Excellent palate, thick and rich, very softly carbonated, sweet finish. Flavour is sweet. Demerara sugar, syrup. Very sweet, too sweet I think.

ALIBALI (790) - Kiel, GERMANY - AUG 16, 2016
UPDATED: AUG 17, 2016 Ich empfehle zuerst in den Mundraum sofort mit einem kräftigen Schluck LUST auszuspülen, nur um sicher zu gehen das auch wirklich jeder Wickel erstmal die Chance hat, sich an die EXTREM dominate Süße zu gewöhnen. Aber der Reihen nach. In der Nase viel Fass, Süßkirsch und schwarze Johannisbeeraromatik. Toll. Optisch definitiv in einem bauchigen Glas eindrucksvoller, da hier der ansonsten kaum vorhandene Schaum, erheblich besser zur Stabilität gelangt. Klasse. Wenn man es dann noch schafft die Süße etwas auszublenden wird auch der Trunk zum Erlebnis der besonderen Art. Die Erdigkeit, Würze & Bittere der Hopfen kommen in einem schlanken Nachhall toll zur Geltung und auch die Fruchtflavours sind natürlich allgegenwärtig. Nur muss das alles, immer gegen den am Ende etwas zu süße Gefährten, anstinken. Der Cognactopf. Styleabstinker, aber auch gewagter Partner der spanischen Fliege ;). 0,5l Flasche direkt von der AMAGER BRAUEREI in Kopenhagen. Ca. 5 Euro.

Alengrin (4604) - BELGIUM - JUN 5, 2016
The ’Belgian strong ale’ in this series of sin-themed Amager beers, bought at De Caigny in Essen. Medium thick, moussy, pale greyish beige head consisting of minute and densely packed bubbles, slowly breaking but otherwise well retaining; very dark but translucent purplish burgundy colour with dead yeast and protein dots here and there. Indeed a quite ’luscious’ aroma of candied cherries, caramel, marmelade, strong damp earth and even fairly strong FFF (freshly fermented farmland - not all too pleasant actually), pear syrup, tea, white pepper, butter melting on hot pancakes, candied fig, rum-soaked raisins, ripe blue plum, fermenting tree leaves, brown sugar, honey, soap, cloves, dusty cocoa powder. Very sweet onset, residual brown sugar, (restrained) banana ester as well as impressions of fig, raisin and medlar, balanced by a basic, soft sourishness underneath but nevertheless sticking to the teeth a bit; carbonation is on the soft side. Smooth, slick but ’fat’ mouthfeel, fruity esters, candi sugar sweetness and mild phenolic notes on top of a thick layer of caramelly and honeyish malt sweetness which gains a lightly bittering toasted note in the end; soapy wheat is noticeable too. Primarily malt and, very much so, brown sugar sweet finish with retronasal fruitiness but also a late, earthy and floral hop bitterness and, unsurprisingly, a glow of chest-warming, liqueurish alcohol flirting with astringency (and slightly ’palpable’ on the tongue’s surface at an earlier stage as well). I am not sure if quadrupel, because that is very clearly what this is, would be the beer style most associated with lust and eroticism - being Belgian, I tend to associate it more with quite the opposite in the form of monks and monasteries - but regardless of that, this is indeed a very lush, big, rich and ’baroque’ kind of beer fit for the style. Too bad for the manure-like quality in the aroma, too overly sweet to my personal taste and the alcohol could have been a bit more subtle, but otherwise certainly enjoyable.

FraekkeFyr87 (377) - - MAY 30, 2016
The aroma is dried fruits, caramel, sugar, butter and a bit metallic. The color is dark brown. The taste is full of sugar, caramel, dried fruits and butter. The finish is long and sweet. Not that impressing.

Foffern (1698) - Bodø, NORWAY - MAY 30, 2016
Bottle at home. Two year old. Pours a slightly hazy deep reddish brown colour with a khaki head. Aroma of dried fruit, black currants, wild berries, heather, oak, fudge, bread, spices, chocolate truffles and some smoke. The flavour is more sweet and malty with syrup, cake, nuts, fudge, leather, creme brulee, oak and some alcohol. Has a soft and silky mouth feel, full-bodied and light bitterness. A very rich ale. Has a very complex aroma and a bit too sweet taste. Nice ale but I need to pair it with something to balance out the sweetness.
