ruigo (1815) - PORTUGAL - MAY 12, 2015
33cl bottle. Slightly hazy dark amber colour with a thin off-white head. Nice retention. Caramel, dates, honey, malt, bread and liquorice in the aroma. Average to soft carbonation and medium body. Taste is quite complex but more on the sweet side. Overall, a very good beer.

leghorn99 (167) - Livorno, ITALY - MAR 27, 2015
Di colore mogano; schiuma abbondante, cremosa con un buon cappello persistente. Aroma di malto, caramello, miele; leggero citrico, pompelmo, ananas. In bocca, fa bella presenza il malto, il luppolo, il lievito e lo zucchero di canna; si percepisce anche una punta di whisky, di malto torbato e di frutta matura; retrogusto lungo e caldo.

CaptainTilven (87) - Nancy, FRANCE - JAN 23, 2015
Mahogany colour, red reflections. Abundant foam, fine and creamy, but not persistent. Smell of honey, coffee, chocolate, malt, bread, whisky, ripe fruit - very nice, actually. Sweet, round taste; bitterness at last, on the palate; candi sugar, dried fruit.

Alengrin (3684) - BELGIUM - NOV 3, 2014
Something of a classic, the only Belgian beer calling itself Alt to my knowing, but very Belgian and in that sense not really an Altbier. Pale beige, dense, moussy, sticky head with excellent retention, deep bronze colour with ruby hue, misty. Aroma was already oxidized, but this did not disturb the estery and malty odours, caramel, leather, raisins, hazelnuts, cooked rice, cloves, flowers, pear, liquorice. Deep malty taste, chocolatey, bready, sweetish but not sugary, dried fruits and nuts, dry hoppy finish with some warming alcohol. An underestimated brew with lots of personality.
