Voivod (304) - Como, - AUG 2, 2003
Dark brown colour, good head, not really lasting. Liquorice aroma, with caramel traces. The flavour is obviously light, not too sweet (liquorice and chococolate), but even not watery. A very easy to drink beer: it will never be one of my favourite beers, but I've got to admit that it's pleasant to drink one of these in the summertime!

Alengrin (2815) - BELGIUM - AUG 18, 2014
Typical Dutch oud bruin, so a brown table beer that has nothing to do with what is called ’oud bruin’ in Belgium. Dark reddish brown colour, beige head, malty nose, caramel, chocolate, sweet taste, bit sugary as expected for the style, bit fuller and maltier than usual but inevitably thin due to the low alcohol content.

UPDATED: APR 10, 2014 It is a good sweet dark beer. And it is only 3,5% alcohol, so you can enjoy more bottles ;-) but it is a pity they used artifical sweetner. Overall nice beer, would buy it again.

Pours dark brown with a yellow-white foam head. It has some caramel tones, but the artificial sweetener taste is a bit bothersome. OK during a meal, but that’s about it.

Bottle @ home. Aroma is dusty malt, sugar and caramel. Flavour is big caramel, unfermented malt, some weird herbal liquorice something. Not as bad as expected.

Brownd body, light brown head. Your low alcohol home made sweet beer. Not too bad, not too good. Just plain sweet malty beer.

Bottled, part of a Gulpener package i won at a blind tasting at the brewery. Very dark brown colored, thick brown head. Lots of malts, rye and caramel in aroma. Sweet flavor, but not overly, lots of rye, some metallic notes, especially in finish. Even for the style this is an uninteresting brew.
