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.

Not the best brown but this one is better than their other offerings. Caramel and brown sugar with weak finish.

Geruch nach Malz und Zuckerrübenkraut. Geschmack relativ flach und leicht wässrig mit einem angemessen bitteren Nachgeschmack.

kraddel (3624) - some beerplace, BELGIUM - JUL 22, 2014
Tap @ pakhuis . Pours full , bit clear , dark brown & small white head . Smell is sweet , malty , chocolaty . Taste is bit bitter , some sweetness ( very light though ) and a sharp malty taste . Good carbonation . Too rhin for my taste for sure . Yet again , 5,5 is low abv for this kind of beer . It has got a nice tastepallate as well , subtile and elegant . Aftertaste is dark , sweet ( sugar or malts ? Thin line here ) and actually very good . One of the better ones i tasted from them . Would love a full bodied, 10 % - ish version of this one though cause this is simply to watery for my taste .

Geruch unauffällig. Kakaonoten, ein Tick Erdbeere. Seltsamer, nicht unangenehmer Nachgeschmack.

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 (11599) - 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 (4402) - 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.

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.
