A special beer with a profound taste gained by using carameled malt while brewing. A specific fermentation process gives this beer his extraordinary after taste.

Backlog. Enjoyed at the brewery in 2008. Brown color. Aroma’s: sweet malts, caramel, roasted malts. Flavor is moderate sweet, caramellish. Body is light to medium. Not much of an aftertaste.

Sampled draught @ ’t Pakhuis. Red hued old furniture brown amber with little tanned head. Nose is watery brown sugar water with some caramel, brown apples, sweet spices and light syrup. Taste is watery sweet brown apples, some light malts, empty, caramel, spices and stainless steel, biscuit. Touch flatter, watery body. Better than the other ones tried there but still very far from stellar. Everyone but me classified this one as by the worst one. Seems to have less if even no issues – still far from a nice brew. Boo to all of their beers.

brokensail (9918) - Orange County, California, USA - OCT 3, 2012
A very red tinted amber pour with an off-white head. Smells like caramel covered popcorn. A lot of sweet toasted bread, some grape juice, a bit of spice, and perhaps a hint of metal. There is a hint of butter along with the caramel corn on the flavor. Lots of bread, some toast, and a bit of grape juice. Just very sweet. Could use some more spice character.

Finn (3759) - Tromsø, NORWAY - DEC 1, 2011
Fra fat på brewpuben i Antwerpen 29 Apr 11. Dyp brun. Lavt skum. Nesten ikke aroma. Flat uforanderlig smak av karamell. Kjedelig.

kuphish (378) - Fort Lauderdale, Florida, USA - NOV 7, 2011
On tap at the brewery. Clear, chestnut body. Thick white head sticks to the side of the glass. Puffy lace. Dark cherry nose with a bit of brown sugar molasses. Flavor of fig and dried date comes through a little. Metallic aroma reminiscent of iron that detracts. Yeast profile is pretty low. A touch of grape. Light body, highly carbonated, but not unpleasant. Dry finish with lingering dried fruit flavor...avoids being overbearing. Quite drinkable.

Benjii (3049) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - SEP 28, 2011
On draught at Huisbrouwerij t’Pakhuis in Antwerp. Pours an attractive red -brown colour with a thin beige head. Massive speculoos biscuit aroma! Also some caramel, toffee, treacle and yeast. Similar flavours. Quite biscuity with mild bitterness and grassy hops. Some light black pepper to finish. Foamy mouth-feel with mild carbonation and CO2 prickle. Nice.

yngwie (12605) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JUL 17, 2011
On tap at the brewpub. A clear, copper colored beer with a big, off-white head. The aroma has a decent mix of dried fruits, cellar and caramel, some fresh fruits too. Sweet caramel flavor with a pleasant touch of dried fruits and yeast. Rather thin on the palate. Short finish too. Certainly more pleasant than the blond. 110429

Koelschtrinker (9994) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - JUL 4, 2011
Leicht süß-malziger Geruch. Etwas süßer Antrunk, malzig, eigentlich wie errochen. Dabei etwas fruchtig, wie im Blond auch bananig, prickelnd. Im Mittelteil wird das Bier hopfiger, danach herber, worauf ein bitterer, nicht lange präsenter Ton folgt. Das Bier macht einen Wandel vom anfangs spritzigen zum nachher eher schweren röstmalzernen durch, wobei es stets hopfig bleibt. Nett. Test vom 29.5.2007, Gebinde: Fass Noten: 8,11,12,11,-,11 - 10,84

Rune (7346) - Tromsø, NORWAY - JUN 1, 2011
Tap at the brewhouse. Near clear, dark brown body. Ring of bubbles to the rim of the glass. Sweet malty nose. Rather sharp roasted caramel malts to the taste buds added by hints of butter. Bittering malts to the ending. Feels a bit watered in the mouth (Antwerpen, 29.04.2011).
