Bottle at 2 be in Brugge, of all places. I hadn’t felt great about leaving De Heeren van Liedekercke without trying this one, and imagine my surprise when I found this exclusive beer at a different bar.

Pours a deep mahogany with a huge tight off white head that leaves lots of lacing on the glass.

The aroma is fruity with some leafy hops, pears, and mild earthiness.

The flavor is far fruitier and sweeter than the aroma lets on. The beer has a nice hop bitterness that balances this. The bitterness and nuttiness grow more prevalent as the beer warms.

Leighton (17210) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 3, 2012
Bottle shared at DHL during Paul’s Pre-Wedding Beer Weekend. Pours cloudy auburn with a dense, foamy head. Fresh, piney and lightly yeasty aroma. Medium to big sweet flavor with toasted sugar, light caramel, bubblegum, spices, and very mild fruity tang. Medium to full bodied with average carbonation. Mildly warming to finish with sweet and toasty malts tinged with caramel, pine, some candi sugar, mild citrus. Dries out nicely with some sweet, toasty grassiness, mild yeast and dark, toasty candi sugar. Very good. Strong yet still highly drinkable.

suprchunk (2860) - Crestview, Florida, USA - FEB 11, 2012
Chunky mahogany colored pour. Big off-white, almost tan, head. Big lacing as it slowly dies down. Perfumy rose aroma mixed with malt. Some corn in there as well. Peppery corn malt flavor. Not good. Finishes as bad as it tastes.

yngwie (16227) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - AUG 1, 2011
Bottle, 75cl corked, at De Heeren van Liedekercke. It’s an unclear, brown beer topped by a dense, finger-thick, off-white to beige head leaving lacings. Cellar, prune notes, hints of chocolate and Belgian yeast as well as some caramel on the nose. The flavor is sweet, with chocolate and caramel hints, prunes and a fine hoppyness giving some bitterness. Full body, smooth and nicely carbonated. Mostly sweet in the end, but with bitterness trying to bring balance. A really pleasant one. 110501

Bottle. Pours a nice dark copper color with a frothy eggshell colored head. Aroma is of banana, lighter fruits, spice like allspice, pepper and coriander, along with some honey notes. The flavor is again of spice notes like coriander, clove and pepper, along with the lighter fruits and banana, along honey, caramel and some breadiness. The body is light to medium with a chalky and dry mouthfeel. Overall a pretty solid Belgian Strong Dark Ale, I would love to go visit the Heeren van Liederkercke resturant sometime.
