COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Abbey beer, ruby colour, top-fermentation beer, outstanding owing to its soft flavour and fantastic aroma. This beer’s name comes from the French Capuchins, who had a monastery in Budel at the beginning of the last century.

A fairly dull beer by most standards. Colour is a nice reddish brown, but head is disappointingly fleeting, and ends up looking like sea scum tossed on the waves. Aroma is pleasant, but not outstanding, with some nice caramel and black pepper notes present. Mouthfeel is decent, but a little thin. Flavour is nice - good complex malt, with a caramelly moreishness about it. The taste saves this beer really. I wouldn’t order it especially, but nor would I be horribly disappointed to find it on a guest tap somewhere.

After the beer was served in the glass there was found a lasting quantity not wall adhesive light brown foam collar which was fine and evenly of structure. The beer also contained much carbonic acid in the glass. The beer has a clear dark brown color and a sweet taste. The after tast of the beer is hoppy bitter with a very candysugar touch. This beer smells malty.

SilkTork (5275) - Rochester, Kent, United Kingdom, Kent, ENGLAND - MAY 28, 2009
300ml bottle from Beers Of Europe. A warm malty beer with a fine, creamy carbonation. Some gel floaties. Sweet taste, though dry aroma and finish. Some bacon, chalk, vanilla, butter, caramel, banana, chocolate flavours hanging around in a reasonably pleasant but uninteresting manner. Awareness of warm alcohol, but not aggressive. This is a drinkable malty brown beer. Less yeasty than usual for a Belgian style beer. Watery and dull finish. This is the third beer I’ve had from this brewery, and they haven’t impressed me. They appear to be trying out a variety of styles, and haven’t yet got a character of their own.

interesting aroma that’s strong and deep. Red, coppertone look. Taste lingers for a while, wheat bread with butter and caramel. Alcohol can be felt all the way down the belly.
