Jonb5 (370) - Greater London, - MAR 18, 2013
330ml bottle, poured into Leffe Chalice. Very dark auburn colour, hazy, decent thick, tanned head, good lacing retention. Aroma was yeast, oak and molasses. Tasted malt, brown sugar, molasses, yeast and cranberry. Smooth texture, slightly thick body, not overly carbonated. Fairly similar to the Dubbel, but less sticky. Decent enough.

Alengrin (2076) - BELGIUM - AUG 19, 2014
Christmas Grimbergen since 2013. Coarse, sticky, off-white head, colour a warm, ’autumn-like’ bronze with copper hue, clear. Sweet aroma of pear, candi syrup, dates, chocolate, raisins, almond, soap as well as faint solvents and a pasteurized, cooked smell. Sweetish taste, caramel, candi, mellow mouthfeel with relatively low carbonation, nutty malts, some spicy notes, grassy hoppy finish with a light coffee-like roastedness but otherwise short and even a bit watery. Typical mass-market beer and cliché as this is clearly Scotch-inspired, like many dark Belgian Christmas ales.

jaghana (4017) - Strasbourg (France), FRANCE - APR 30, 2014
Bottle 33cl, nose is on belgian yeast. Aroma is near a belgian dubbel but with a kind of industrial caramel in it, low complexity, sweet, light alcohol touch, quite basic.
