Alengrin (3536) - BELGIUM - SEP 20, 2015
Bottle from a Dutch supermarket, thanks to Craftmember. One of these ’virtuous’ beers with double names from this brewery. Thick, dense, pale yellowish beige head retaining very well, colour very dark reddish chestnut brown, blackish in overall appearance but transparent on the edges. Pleasant, typical stout aroma of bitter chocolate nibs, coffee grounds, burnt toast, beef stock, bayleaf, subtle hints of salmiac, wet leather, iron shavings (but feeling ’natural’ here), dried banana, vanilla and cigar ashes. Despite being characterized as a dry stout, it kicks off with a dense, almost candied, yet restrained sweetness, a bit liquorice-like, along with raisins, baked banana and candied dates, but drying as the liquid travels over the tongue, with a slick, oily, caramelly, nutty and deeply toasted malt body with soft carbonation, turning roasted in the end with a lovely, profoundly ’fondant chocolate’-like bittersweetness further bittered with late but quite assertive, spicy, leafy hops in the end and a dash of warming, but non-disturbing alcohol. I love a good stout and this surely is one, makes me curious about the rest of this brewery’s range.

Apparently thiis beer went through some evolution. According to this recent bottle I got from a Dutch supermarket called Deen, it’s got 7% abv, 51 ebu, a 121 ebc. It pours a beautiful black with a small tanned foamy ’mocca’head, medium to soft carbonation. The roast malts and coffee hit your nose straight away in this still subtle aroma. There’s dark cacao, hops, some fruity hint ( like datk sweet citrus, tangerine of some sort...), toasted bread and nuts. The taste is of roasted malts, a lot of nice bitter coffee, bitter hops, again that very faint hint of something fruity I can’t quite put my finger on, a slight cirtic-acid edge to the nice oily, bitter coffee aftertaste, a medium dry hop-feeling in the mouth, lovely bitter with cacao and hops, get even a bit of the bread in the aftertaste with a smithering of silt lining. Some sweetness is still in there too. Alliteration goes well with this one: Black, Bitter, Beautifully Brewed. Love this one.

Geur erg zwak. Alleen bij het openen van de fles dacht ik, ja dit gaat goed worden maar in het glas is dit alles weer weg. Ziet er normaal uit als elke andere stout. Deze stout gaat richting de bitter wat niet echt mijn smaak is. Naast de bitter kan ik niet veel andere smaken eruit vissen. Iets van de alcohol krijg je wel mee. Normale stout.

Currently I am updating my ratebeer with al the beers I drank but was too lazy to rate at the time. I give the scores I gave back than. If I drink the beers again I might re-rate them.

Aroma of roasted malt, caramel, coffee, dark chocolate, some dark fruits. Flavour is moderate to medium sweet with a moderate bitter finish. A bit on the light side and easily drinkable.

Bottle. Black with minimal head. Coffee, licorice, soy sauce, roasted nuts and grains with a bit of ash. Light hint of fruits in the background. Taste is mostly dry and bitter with just a touch of sweetness. Medium bodied. Decent enough stout.
