Hermod (6493) - Vantaa, FINLAND - MAR 25, 2015
33cl bottle. As Ambiorix Bruin. Poured brown color, murky, dense white head. Floral hops, caramelly aroma, green tea notes. Really pleasant. Flavor has tea, caramel, sugars, floral notes. Surprisingly thin for the abv. High drinkability, I like this one, even if dubbel is not a style I prefer.

psilosophy (679) - vitry en artois, FRANCE - MAR 23, 2015
Bouteille de 33cl. Couleur marron foncé, opaque, mousse abondante de belle tenue. Je ne sais pas si j’ai perdu mon palais à cet instant ou si la bouteille a subi une avarie mais à part quelques arômes de fruits secs et bien...rien du tout! C’ est bien pétillant, alcoolisé, un peu acide mais aucune personnalité. A retester. Trouvée à Vanuxeem - Ploegstaert

Alengrin (4604) - BELGIUM - JAN 5, 2015
UPDATED: JUN 4, 2016 One of those old school Slaghmuylder beers, not sure if this is still made, rated from old notes. A dark chestnut brown beer with pale beige, moussy head and malty character with some dried fruits, walnuts and biscuit in the nose; malty and restrained fruity taste, sweetish with a hint of candi sugar as well as a certain sourishness, dryish finish with herbal hops and a touch of warming alcohol. Tasted its new incarnation yesterday too, for comparison with these old tasting notes, and it seems to have become even better than it was, adding umami-like hints of cooked beef and fried mushrooms, as well as more toasted maltiness, providing more bitterness than I remember from the old version. My rating here is an average of both.
