Alengrin (2464) - BELGIUM - DEC 22, 2014
The younger winter version of Barbar, a very deep ruby brown beer with creamy, dense head. Malt sweet, caramelly, a bit nutty, honeyish, candied orange, dried apricots; sweet main taste, malty and fruity, citrus touch, malt sweet finish with grassy hop touch and warming alcohol. Sweet and somewhat straightforward but in all, very nice winter warmer.

poech73 (219) - Nivelles, BELGIUM - DEC 14, 2014
@Palais du Houblon. Bière doucereuse et forte à la robe marron et au beau col épais crémeux dégageant des senteurs de grain torréfié, de céréales, de miel, de levure. La gorgée, assez aqueuse, fort douce, quasi sirupeuse, offre un maltage généreux en torréfaction avec un caractère cacaoté prépondérant accompagné de saveurs céréalières généreuses. Le houblonnage, plutôt discret à l’attaque, se révèle en arrière goût sur des notes fleuries et légèrement acre. Cette âcreté un peu surette rend la dégustation assez désaltérante. Heureusement car son ABV s’impose un peu trop vite à mon goût.

- Alcoholpercentage van 8,5% - Redelijk biertje destijds gedronken - Niet verkeerd, maar heb naar mijn smaak veel lekkerder biertjes gedronken - Vandaar mijn niet al te hoge waardering uiteindelijk ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

ippopotamo36 (365) - Rome, ITALY - NOV 10, 2014
0,33 bottle purchased and consumed in Kosovo. Pours the closest brown can come to black, creamy beige head. Nose is fresh juicy figs, chestnuts honey, a hint of caramel. Mouth: highly carbonated. Good body although it stays easy-drinking. Some spices, sweet overall mouth with a slight bitter end and aftertaste. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

ZodiacM (146) - NETHERLANDS - OCT 18, 2014
Geschonken uit een beugelfles, een donkerbruin bier met bijna witte schuimkraag. Eerder een dunkler bock dan een belgian strong ale. Geur van mout en noten. Smaak van gebrande mout, bloemen, sinasappel en heel licht honing. De nasmaak is zoetig, mn door de sinasappel. Een bijzondere bok, prettig van smaak door de smaak en afdronk.
