alteregoo (797) - POLAND - AUG 29, 2015
Pana drobno i średnio pęcherzykowa, po kilku minutach opada do nieregularnej pierzynki. Barwa ciemno bursztynowa, opalizująca, piwo ładnie pracuje w szkle. Zapach dość słodki - charakterystyczny belgijski zapach kandyzowanych owoców, miodu spadziowego, syropu klonowego i suszonych gruszek oraz przypraw korzennych i głogu. Jest też jakaś niepokojąca nuta orientalnej mieszanki ziół... W smaku dość słodkie i pikantne, estry i fenole oczywiście grają tu główne skrzypce podobnie jak w aromacie, suszona gruszka, figi i daktyle połączone z suszoną brzoskwinią, czerwonym i czarnym pieprzem, imbirem oraz sianem. Goryczka piołunowo-pestkowa, nieduża ale długa, podtrzymywana przez likierowy alkohol, niedrażniący, aczkolwiek podbijający pikantność w afterteasie. Wbrew pozorom piwo nie jest lepkie ani gęste, przeciwnie - sprawia wrażenie lekkiego, gładkiego, a zarazem bogatego. Średnio nagazowane. Ciekawe piwo - szeroko rozumiane Belgian Strong Ale, nieco przypominające Dubbla i piwa świąteczne. Słodkie i jednocześnie dość lekkie w odbiorze.

SamTheBarrel (770) - Vallentuna, SWEDEN - AUG 29, 2015
750ml brown paper wrapped bottle, poured into a Tulip glass. Appearance is hazy dark copper colored with a medium sized frothy beige head, that reduced quickly. Aroma of pears, brown sugar and a hint of banana. Flavor of brown sugar, raisins, caramel, prunes, spices and bread. Taste is medium sweet and medium bitter. Palate is medium bodied, soft texture and average carbonation. Glazen Toren Cuvée Angélique is tasty, complex flavour but a little too sweet.

Aroma of raisins, hay and yeast. Pours a cloudy amber with white head and minimal lacing. The taste is raisins, wood, also vinous and fruit notes. Medium body and medium carbonation. Overall, enjoyable.
