JorisPPattyn (9532) - Ursel, BELGIUM - APR 29, 2016
Good yellow, slightly irregular head, over deep dark veiled chestnut coloured beer. Roasted notes, quite sweetish, as raisins, liquorice, praliné. Liquorice, sweet (especially in the finish), bit fruity-yeasty. Finish has some orangezeste, rather rutty too. Feels rather light-bodied, even watery. I find it difficult to estimate this at 8+ ABV... Like watered-down Gouden Carolus, or Mechelsen Bruynen as that was used to be called. Certainly not very high-strung, the label excepted...

@ Basunen 15-8-22: doften är ganska intetsägande. Smaken är mycket söt med tydlig kola. Enbart små toner av apelsin. Ingen höjdare.
