Hazy dark colour, white creamy foam. Nose of caramel and dark fruit. Rather dry and bitter taste. Not bad, nothing special.

Alengrin (4604) - BELGIUM - JUL 11, 2016
UPDATED: JUL 15, 2016 Commissioned ’massieve ale’ from Huyghe with very thick and frothy, ’papery’ lacing, dense, pale yellowish beige head, clear dark chestnut brown robe with ’rusty’ amberish hue. Aroma of caramel, cold tea, raw red cabbage, light DMS (cooked vegetable), coriander, burnt sugar, dried fig, elderberry, liquorish and unmistakable iron-based head stabilizing agent, as in most of Huyghe’s beers. Sweetish onset with sourish balance, hints of dried peach, blackberry and some date, strongish carbo (a tad much for the style, in fact), very caramelly and toffeeish, straightforward malt sweetness with a toasted bitterish edge and some nuttiness, metallic due to the added iron, liquorish-like spicy note, herbal hop bitterish hint in the end but remaining primarily caramelly, with the aforementioned toasted bitterishness and a vague glow of warming alcohol. Straightforward ’strong dubbel’, not very inspired and suffering from iron in the same way as most of Huyghe’s strong beers.

laiti (8081) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JUL 10, 2016
Draught @ Namur Beer Festival 2016. Aroma has ripe fruits and sweet licorice. Flavour has funky yeasty tones and ripe fruits. Foamy palate. Unusual but good and balanced. Alcohol is present but does not disturb that much.

Fules (832) - Gyöngyös, HUNGARY - JUN 21, 2016
Tartós, hatalmas hab, sötétbarna szín. Tipikus belga dubbeles illat. Savanyú, kis pörkölt malátás aromával. Ahogy melegszik, csillapodik a savanyú, és kiegyensúlyozottabbá válik, de még így sem jön be ez a sör. Utóíze rövid és a korty folytatása. Az alkohol jól elbújik. Testes sör.

blackisle (2091) - IJburg, NETHERLANDS - MAY 3, 2016
Bottle 33cl. Poured into a chalice. Clear ruby brown, small foamy beige head, dissipates quickly, minimal lacing; aroma sweet malts, caramel, dark fruits, candy sugar, sugar syrup; taste light heavy sweet and slightly bitter, malty, sugary, spices; mild roasted middle part, burned caramel, leading to a light bittersweet finish; medium body, watery to oily texture, average carbonation; not very balanced though the taste gets a bit smoother after a while all in all disappointing.

Arôme de caramel grillé pour cette bičre ŕ l’impressionnante robe de feu. Mousse épaisse, goűt subtil. Une réussite!

bičre brune. couleur caramel, mousse épaisse brune. bulles fines et nombreuses. Arôme trčs léger de caramel gout agréable et doux alcool peu prononcé malgré les 8.5° bien meilleure que la blonde. Dommage que 2 soient bien trop chčre. rapidement elle devient sans saveur.
