Alengrin (4153) - BELGIUM - DEC 23, 2014
Commissioned beer in a swingtop bottle made for Den Ouden Advokaat, an eggnog making company in Sint-Niklaas. Deep bronze colour, dense creamy head, malt sweet, caramelly, estery, some DMS in the nose; spicy yeastiness, smooth, a bit chocolatey, some warming alcohol in the finish along with herbal hops. Okay, but nothing out of the ordinary.

blackisle (1784) - IJburg, NETHERLANDS - OCT 12, 2014
Swing top bottle 33cl. Clear deep amber color, a lot of bubbles, big foamy beige head, slowly collapsing with good lacing; aroma sweet malty, dark fruits, plum, caramel, yeasty, nutty notes (almond, chestnut); taste moderate sweet, slightly bitter, caramel, fruity and spicy notes, bit yeasty; full-bodied, oily to sticky texture, average carbonation; finish bittersweet, fruity, woody, herbal and spicy notes. A beer like a meal, quite complex but in balance.

minutemat (3741) - Shrewsbury, Shropshire, ENGLAND - SEP 28, 2014
330ml bottle from Vanuxeem. Pours chestnut brown with decent off-white head. Taste is on the sweeter side of things with fruitcake, warming alcohol and a slight spiciness coming through. A delicious beer!

thanatosti (1415) - Culemborg, NETHERLANDS - SEP 23, 2014
33 cl. swing top bottle @ home, gift from Hilde. Dark brown with an off-white head. Malty nose with some dark fruits. I don’t really know why this isn’t listed as an abbey dubbel because it is a typical dubbel, albeit a bit more spicy than the average one.

jbruner (3780) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - SEP 6, 2014
2007 bottle. Pours a hazy brown with minimal head or lacing. Aroma is chocolate, dark fruits, caramel sweetness. Taste is a big sweet malt bomb, caramel and chocolate, barely any yeast esters remain. Warmth in your throat and all the way down to your belly, big and sweet, but nice.
