Constatation 1: " Mince yapa’d’bulles " Constatation 2: " Mince yapurien dans le verre " Dégustée en regardant "les fraises sauvages" de Bergman ( Chic, n’est ce pas ? ). La preuve que l’on peut faire de véritables bonnes bières sans mettre du piment ... Vraie belle complexité du vieillissement, ainsi qu’une grande longueur en bouche. Joli design intriguant. Un délice donc, devant un très beau film. Une belle soirée ...

McNeillR (1758) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JUN 18, 2015
Murky ruby brown, decent tan ringed pillow. Nose is inky coconut, rich brass vanilla and loose brown sugar. Decent enough thick, rich dark cherry and stalky sugar with a real vibrant barrell buzz. There’s viscosity and there’s a buzz - mouthfeel is what sells this to me. Sails the linger a long, long way into the sunset. Finishes like a bunch of raisins have been leeching on the wood, linger is peppery and sherry sweet with more dark fruit burn.
The swooping balance did this all for me, everything lined up and the sweetness was something wizardry.

maekchu (2733) - Hirakata, JAPAN - MAY 6, 2015
Bottle. Deep dark pruney fruity nose. Thin brown color, flat. Condensed prunes and raisins, rich and pleasant, a hit of light tobacco,. Fruity sweeness rules the mid palate and final. Medium-heavy body. Great flavors, not overdone.

Alengrin (3228) - BELGIUM - APR 26, 2015
Collaboration brew, a barrel aged stout with rye. Sticky, dense, creamy, stable, yellowish wite head over a very dark burgundy beer, almost black. Strong aroma of tawny port, marzipan, milk chocolate, rye bread, bourbon, basil, candied orange, banana, coffee powder, black olives, brown rhum, cooked meat, vanilla and mocha ice cream. Densely sweet, ’praline’-like onset, banana and marzipan again, deep rye sourishness throughout the palate with even somewhat drying effect, very thick and fat chocolatey and caramelly maltiness, umami taste blending in with the sweetness and sourishness, finishing dryly sourish, lightly bittering from roasted malts, very woody (tannins), umami touch, warming alcohol. Another interesting Molen creation, though perhaps not as appealing to my personal taste as some of their other stouts.

Beerman6686 (5321) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 15, 2015
This poured a lighter brown with a beige head. Aroma was of Bourbon, booze, and dark fruits. Flavor was ok barrel, light Belgian dark underneath but a lingering booze burn.
