gEUS (1637) - Linden, BELGIUM - APR 25, 2016
bottle at home. Bottle date 14/10/2009 - BBD + 5 years. Pours dark brown with a small small small head. Very nice nutty smoked nose, strong caramel malts, brown sugar, only a subtle of madeira. Medium and sweet but well-rounded body, nice roasty notes, some bitters in the back, spicy & hot in the finish, but mellowed out - hurray as I am not for hot spices in beer. Taste is roasted and caramel malts, dates, leather, some tar and tobacco. Wow, splendid. Why oh why did they stop reaching such heights...?

Niezbyt obfita, jednak kremowa i ładna piana. W aromacie czuć trochę szyszek i igieł, dalej ognisko, suszona wołowina, tytoń, a wszystko oczywiście skompane w bardzo zbalansowanej jak to u DeMolena wędzonce, która momentami wpada w torfową. Po ogrzaniu wychodzi czekolada i śliwka - jest zajebiście. W smaku (jak dla mnie) od razu daje o sobie znać pikantność, pali rure. Czuć jednak wyraźnie nuty palone, czekoladowe, jest też wędzona szynka. Jak dla mnie poziom wędzonki jest dosyć wysoki i tutaj plus, natomiast za ostrym nie przepadam, a to piwo opaliło mnie konkretnie. Jeśli ktoś lubi takie klimaty to definitywnie must-have.

330 ml bottle. Pours a very dark brown with red hints and a light tannish head. Aromas of smoky phenolics, licorice, and dates. Flavors follow same with a hot and antiseptic mouthfeel. A little throat burn... Didn’t think I would, but I like the heat with the smoke...

330ml bottle from wheres or the others. Pours with good solid head, nice black body with hints of brown. Aroma of leather, aftershave, my grandpa after being out in the woods for a week at his cabin. Like he just trundled in from the foothills with his pack and smelly old boots, gave the nod to my grandmother, played with his hearing aid, threw some meat in the sink and told her to clean it and get it ready for dinner that night. I, as a kid staring up in wonder, wondered how he got that and where he came from, hadn’t seen him in months. Pine. Yeah, pine on the nose - that’s it. He’s been sleeping in pine needles for weeks stalking a deer or an elk or something and finally carved off a piece for dinner. His shirt is stained from gun oil and there is that faint hint of something flammable having been ignited in the past 12 hours. Then, I’m there in the toolshed with dad and grandpa, he’s cleaning his boots and this smell comes around again. The flavour is the shoe polish he’s using to get his boots cleaned, some gun oil, and some caribou meat. Chunks of abandoned beef jerky are roasting by the wood stove. He takes out a leather strap to sharpen his blade. Swish, swish, swish, I can hear it against the leather strap and getting sharper. The toolshed is filled with smoke from the woodfire and only a candle or two keeps us lit from darkness, total humid darkness in the hot dry summer of the southern mountains. I can taste that bone dry wood ready to burn at any minute, pine needles and twigs crunching underfoot with a starry sky above; The brew drifts away quickly, doesn’t leave anything nasty, and is full of character. I’ll linger for awhile. This brings back memories, intense ones, and not once does it break the suspension of disbelief. Well done.
