Batavi (355) - Waalwijk, NETHERLANDS - AUG 26, 2016
Fles gekocht bij AH supermarkt, uitgeschonken in een pilsener fluitglas. Donker amberkleurig, roodachtig bier, met een kleine lichtbeige schuimkraag, die vrij snel wegtrekt. Duidelijke aroma’s van karamelmout, toffee en kruidige notities van witte peper en koriander. Het smaakpallet is zoet, moutig en kruidig. Met smaken van karamel, butterscotch, toffee, thee, bruinbrood, pruimen, rozijnen, koriander en peper. Medium tot sterke carbonatie, waterig mondgevoel, licht kruidige finish van koriander en peper. Geen onaardig bier, redelijke complexiteit, maar mist wel balans in de smaak, iets te moutig. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

300ml bottle (Alaus Namai, Vilnius)
Sweet bready aroma. Some vapours coming over, not quite glue, but not a million miles away. Sweet and sticky and gluey taste. Not good. Drinkability lowish, at best.

Alone at home. Dark amber colored beer with large diminishing off-white head and lots of carbonation. Malty caramel hinted aroma. Full sparkling palate. Finish is sweet bitter, sugar caramel hinted.

Xstream (242) - NETHERLANDS - SEP 25, 2015
Vrij mouterig bier met Caramel, bruine suiker. Heel licht wat limoen in de achtergrond. Behoorlijk zoet, rond en licht bittertje. Ik mis iets extra?s om door die zoete Caramel laag heen te snijden. Blijft wat mat daardoor.

Alengrin (4604) - BELGIUM - JUL 4, 2015
A Dutch ’edelbier’ hovering between a Belgian strong blonde and a Belgian strong dark. Moussy, pale greyish beige, fairly stable head leaving a pretty, dustweb-shaped lacing after a while; colour a deep orangey copper, fully transparent and clear, with vivid sparkling. Sweet and malty aroma of honey, butterscotch, coriander seed, clear pasteurisation, cookie dough, banana liqueur, toasted bread, candied orange, lots of brown sugar, cognac, weaker hints of sweet cherry candy, liquorice, iced tea, rotting grass and some unmistakable ’damp cloth’, plus a faint hint of onsetting oxidation - this bottle is not as fresh as expected, apparently. Sweet onset, honeyishly sugary, candied fruit, raisins, some red apple peel astringency, fairly full and softish mouthfeel, slightly metallic with medium carbo; resiny, bittersweetish coriander is obvious, as is a bourbon- or brandy-like alcohol presence which already becomes a bit wry on the tongue before swallowing. Underneath, there is a straightforwardly caramelly and smoothly toasted maltiness. Finish is lingering candied or honeyish sweetness, a little bit cloying, lingering caramelly malts, some herbal hop bitterness for balance without becoming truly bittering and the expected fair dose of brandy-like alcohol, not just warming, but actually burning a bit; the coriander provides a certain amount of resiny ’drought’. Too alcoholic, too artificially sweet and could do with some more body (actually refermenting it in the bottle would already prove helpful!), this is not a very subtle beer, but still enjoyable alright if you like your ’Belgians’ sweet and big on alcohol.
