BlackHaddock (3183) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - OCT 30, 2012
18th Oct 2012 on-tap in Daisey’s ’t Brugs Beertje: good deep amber/brown body, tan coloured head that stayed a while. Burnt sugar and honey in both the nose and taste: so a bit sweet then! Belgian style yeast esters and flavours calmed it down a bit but other sweet notes also came and went during my tasting: namely candid fruits, brown sugar and caramel. The alcohol was well hidden by the sweet brew; it did have a mild hop bitterness under the surface and towards the end of each sip it was easy to find. A nice easy drinking beer for 7.0% ABV.

33cl, new exclusive brewfirm Anno 2011, from De Hopduvel Gent, complex brew, malty/sweet and slightly fruity/spicy, balanced, hazy, good head, good brew, ’This to celebrate my 2000th Belgian Beer Rating. Always nice to see some new Belgian breweries and brewfirms coming out! Starting my life as a wine taster I didn’t think I would get so far with craft beer... I still pursue all bottled Belgian beers I havn’t rated yet, except low alcohol. Many thanks to those fellow Beergeeks who helped me out in this never ending venture...’ Note to Joris: the deal still goes on... (as soon I will have another milestone!)
