Dalle (1145) - Skørping, DENMARK - JUN 2, 2003
UPDATED: MAY 25, 2005 Dark red-brown colour with a medium sized light brown head that almost vanishes whilst leaving a nice lace. I’m immediately struck by a malty, sweet and fruity aroma - I sense raisins. Full body. Taste is very malty with hints of chocolate and (for a Belgian ale!) a tiny bit of spice. Bitter finish.

may be this beer is not as tasteful as I wish. But that's what I think. The story and the typical glass however make this beer a real degustation

imdownthepub (10020) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - MAR 3, 2003
