Alengrin (1210) - BELGIUM - AUG 13, 2014
Dubbel with a very long and complicated history: originated as a local, stronger version of faro in the late 19th century (after the brewer had accidentally thrown too much candi sugar into his lambic) and gaining local fame, made by Vanderlinden as "Duivelsbier" till it closed down in 2001, then taken over by Boon and turned into a massive Scotch ale of 8% ABV and finally revised by Boon to the current 6% ABV dubbel version. Complex malt profile, dried fruits, bit toasty finish, very satisfying but I did like the previous 8% ABV version better.
