Alengrin (1210) - BELGIUM - AUG 19, 2014
’Luxury’ edition of Grimbergen Dubbel, limited, sold through the Delhaize supermarket chain in 2010 and intended to accompany meat dishes. Creamy, coarse, light beige head, dark brown colour with ruby hue, clear with little sparkling. Weakish aroma of toasted bread, bitter chocolate, iron, pear, raisins, liquorice, butter, coffee liqueur and my old friend DMS (cooked vegetables). Soft sweetish taste, bit candi, fruity notes, medium carbonation, smooth caramel middle, bit chocolatey, finish of grassy hops and warming alcohol, bit thin, some coffee grounds bitterness. Bit more delicate than the regular but still not nearly exciting enough for its price and ’pretention’ - which stopped me from also buying the blonde version.

On tap. Well little bread aroma. Cant say it is as strong as it seems. Short aftertaste, drinkable, can’t say much.

Mora2000 (5664) - McKinney, Texas, USA - AUG 11, 2013
Thanks to bu11zeye for sharing this bottle. Brown pour with a tan head. The aroma is full of sweet dark fruit with some toffee, raisins and bread. The flavor is also very fruity. I get a lot of dark fruit and cherries as well as some raisins, toffee and candy sugar. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

Leighton (10767) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 1, 2013
Bottle at the ChrisO Snow Tasting, London - one of my contributions!!! Pours clearish, brown-red with a fine, creamy tan cap. Sugary brown bread in the nose. Big sweet flavor, simple, with semi-dark malts, brown sugar, toffee. Medium to full bodied with average carbonation. Lightly warming finish with more sugary brown bread. Simple stuff on the whole.

FatPhil (9281) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - FEB 18, 2013
750ml bottle (Snow@ChrisO)
Old, aged, papery aroma. Flat. Papery palate and taste. Dull. No hint of 7%, but still not a very good beer. Sticky and mashy and malty.

thirdeye11 (5537) - Dallas, Texas, USA - FEB 17, 2013
(75cl dated 8-9-11 thanks to bu11zeye) clear brown copper with wispy tan bubbles. Nose of rich raisin, brown sugar, honey and caramel. Taste of brown sugar, lightly roasty, honey, a bit watery in the finish.

MrW (407) - Londerzeel, BELGIUM - FEB 11, 2013
75cl bottle. Dark red/brown beer, no head. I just didn’t like it. There was something wrong in the taste.

Scopey (6711) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 26, 2013
Bottle at ChrisO Snow Tasting, thanks to Leighton. It pours deep ruby-brown with a small off-white head. The nose is candy cane, caramel, wood, spice and earth. The taste is wood, earth, spice, candy, cola, leather, orange peel, tinned peach, plum, prune and raisin, with a dry finish. Medium body and moderate carbonation. Perhaps a bit thin for the style and fairly unexciting.

mR_fr0g (2911) - Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - JAN 24, 2013
Bottle at Chriso’s snow tasting 20/01/2013. Chesnut brown with a big beige head. Nice belgian yeast esters aromas. Some raisin and alcohol nose. High carbonation. Plum raisin in the flavour and dry finish. Not bad, but lacks depth.
