2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Tasted at Brugs Bierfestival, hobby brew commercialised through Gulden Spoor since earlier this year. Light beige, stable head, colour a murky dark brown. Aroma of bitter chocolate, thyme, hazelnuts, pear, dried plums, gingerbread, bit of woodiness without being actually matured on wood. Taste begins with a dried fruitiness, bit sweetish, caramel, towards the finish more spicy yeastiness and ending with some toasted bitterness, alcohol well-hidden. All in all nothing too bad, but I’ve had lots of better examples of the style and certainly nothing near Westvleteren 12 or anything of that kind, contrary to what some other comments here suggest.

8/III/14 - 33cl bottle from Bierhalle Deconinck (Vichte) @ Emelisse brewery (Kamperland) - bottled: VII/2013 (2014-262)
Clear red to red brown beer, big irregular off-white head, adhesive. Aroma: very bready, some caramel, sugary, sweet. MF: lots of carbon, medium body. Taste: sweet, caramel, bit spicy, little bitter, sugary, sweet malts. Aftertaste: little bitter, malty, caramel, some chocolate, little spicy, some anise, sugary, little hoppy. A shame of all the bogus ratings here, trying to alter the results of the beer.

Draught Good white head; unclear brown beer; Wood, chocolate, herbs (thyme?). Dry chocolate, dark malts, sawdust, too effacée. Dry, attenuated, but no flavours left in the aftertaste. Starts good, ends disappointing.

This dark beer is one of my favorites at the moment. A good deep taste , a bit sweet yet you taste some bitterness. I recommend to try one asap! I can’t wait to get my hands on a next crate, as Rudy told me his next brewage will be ready soon.
