21st Oct 2012: Cafe De Grendelpoort in Valkenburg, on-tap, along with a host of others in a ’Bok Fest’. Pours a dark brown colour which isn’t mirky but it isn’t clear either. On top a thin layer of white foam. The aroma was of over roasted malty molasses and yeastiness. The yeast and sweetness from the molasses carried on into the taste nicely. There was also a distinct liquorice finish to this brew, so much so I had to have another to make sure! Very pleasant and tasty, body strength good and well carbonated.

Nogal een flets biertje vond ik. Niet echt een meerwaarde in het bierlandschap.

Swaroga (1304) - Brussels, BELGIUM - APR 1, 2014
Butelka 75cl. OCZY : piwo ma przejrzysty, ciemnobrązowy kolor i malutką piane. NOS : w zapachu dominuje karmel i ciemne owoce. Tak naprawdę to ma podobny zapach do cherry coke z dodatkiem whisky. USTA : całkiem mocno gazowane. Oleiste ale nie jest mocno nasycone. Nie jest też kompletnie wodniste. Piwo jest słodkie ale bez przesady. Staje się delikatnie kwaśne, podobnie do goździków. Przy końcu ta kwaśność staje się delikatnie cierpka. Piwo jest również delikatnie gorzkie o nutach palonego karmelu i ziół. ODCZUCIA : dobrze skomponowane i przyjemne w piciu. Jedynie w posmaku irytuje ta cierpkość, która po kilku łykach przypomina coraz bardziej nudny metal. OCENA : smak : 6/10 pijalność : 6/10

Catch up rating . A dark copper, brown beer with a lively head that settles into a small skin of white foam. Smell is malt , nuts and molasses. Taste is malty, but subdued. There is some fruit taste. Bitterness is low and body is a bit watery, but this makes it lighter.

Bottle. Dark brown with a thin off white head. Sweet caramel nose. Rich chewy sweet bread and caramel flavor, spicy caramelized goodness.

Transparant brown with thin creamy head. Caramel/nuts with little acid smell. Strong taste, not really sweet, but feels a bit watery.

alethol (102) - NETHERLANDS - DEC 28, 2013
Pous very dark brown. Smallish off-white head. Malty aroma. Disappointing taste: light, watery. Aftertaste is malty, slightly dry. Not bad, but quite average for a bock beer.
