corkyrory66 (1431) - BELGIUM - MAR 23, 2016
Bière non plus à 9 % abv, comme indiqué sur le site, mais à 8,5 %. Non refermentée. Mon exemplaire avait 6 mois en plus que sa date limite. Couleur roux auburn, à la clarté nette. Bulles moyennes, éparses, peu nombreuses. Mousse qui est un nappage brun clair de surface. Arômes de malt cara, candi, caramel, un peu de baies noires. 1ère bouche souple à l’ensemble malt cara et candi, avec quelques fruits mûrs. Arrière-bouche équilibrée, mais d’un niveau modeste. 2ème assez agréable, mais un peu doucereuse. Arrière-bouche à la personnalité pas très affirmée. 3ème un peu plus affirmée, comme en réponse à ma remarque !! Arrière-bouche à la fois fruitée et boisée. La longueur ne confirme pas cette 3ème bouche, elle est plus indéfinie. Jambes modestes. Alcool qui ne fait pas son niveau, il ne travaille pas sur la longueur. Finale linéaire. CONCLUSION : que faisait le Keizer Karel avec cette rouge rubis ?? Il attendait qu’on lui serve la blonde ...

emdejes (23) - Gent, BELGIUM - JAN 26, 2016
75 cl bottle / BBD: Fall 2008 Although 7 years past expiration date, I very much liked how this beer held up. Aroma and taste of orange peels , but certainly not too fruity. Overall a very complex and dark beer. Delicious!

Birra equilibrata sebbene molto dolce riesce a non essere stucchevole, colore rubino-caramello. Amaro inesistente, birra con buon corpo. Retrogusto dolciastro.
