Bosbouw (1269) - Gemonde, - APR 6, 2014
Roodbruine kleur met een volle crème kraag. Ruikt fruit, zoetig en mout. Smaakt beetje zoet, herfstfruit, vanille. Iets bittere afdronk.

Borresteijn (4731) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - SEP 28, 2014
33cl Bottle from Prik&Tik Pauwels. Clear deep reddish brown colour, light-beige head. Aroma of laurel, liquorice, gale, light metallic, brown sugar, much like Jopen Koyt. Flavour is likewise, quite spicy, laurel, liquorice, gale, caramel, bittersweet finish, slightly alcoholic, sticky. Medium-bodied at best. Decent spicy ale, again not unlike Jopen Koyt.

sebletitje (6711) - Enghien, BELGIUM - SEP 11, 2014
Draft @ Delirium.Cuivrée, col beige. Arôme offre un profond bouquet fruité noir très agréable, le tout sur un malté crystal, légèrement biscuité, léger carapâle. Palais approche d’"une quadruple, note de Speculoos, cannelle, biscuité et une fine note d’anisé. Fruité noir, léger en épice un peu sèche aux relents de grains et malts. Houblonné ajoute juste la bonne dose d’amertume restant ici dans une approche noble.

GSAP (499) - NETHERLANDS - SEP 3, 2014
Smaak van drop, gedroogd fruit, likeurbonbon en andere zoetigheid, totaal een redelijke ’BAM’ in je mond. Aroma heeft ook die zoetigheid, maar niet zo vol of warm. Nasmaak is wat notig, en ebt redelijk snel weg. Goede kraag op donker.

Alengrin (1801) - BELGIUM - AUG 31, 2014
Bockor beer commemorating a long-gone brewery in Kortrijk. Stable, off-white, loosely structured head over a dark burgundy beer. Strong sweet aroma of raisins, chocolate, candied figues, caramel candy, maply syrup, honey, some spices, some DSM (red cabbage). Sweet taste of candied fruits, chocolatey and caramelly malts, resinous and bit thinnish mouthfeel, creamy, finishing with some medium herbal hops. Interesting.

seynie (158) - Tienen, BELGIUM - AUG 18, 2014
Nice reddish brown with big foamy head. Smells of red fruit and some mint. Taste is malt, red fruit, a little bit of candice sugar, latte, whipped cream. Very well balanced with a nice more sweet finish without being sticky. Only minus is that the finish could be longer and more complex, but this beer should be rated higher

Tap. Light in taste, but not in booziness. Dubbel like but more fruity. Got that rochefort Parma violet thing. Very drinkable.
