COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bottled. Pasteurised.
A smooth, full-bodied stout with a refreshing hoppy aftertaste. Brewed with proportions of Black Malt for colour and ’toast’ flavour and Brown Malt for dryness. Based on a recipe over 100 years old, brewing was revived in 1996 after a break of 79 years.

Bottle at home bought from Beer Gonzo. Pours with a beige head, not a strong stout aroma, but good dry stout flavour and sweet on the palate. Not a bad stout.

Alengrin (2186) - BELGIUM - AUG 19, 2014
Classic dry stout with a long historical heritage; thick, light beige, sticky, stable head, black colour with a wine-red hue only visible under bright light, clear. Strong aroma of coffee and bitter chocolate, leafy hops, iron, walnuts, peat, leather. Dry taste with subtle presence of dark fruits, smooth, bit oily mouthfeel, bit sourish carbonation, caramel malts in the middle, supple, mild but nevertheless clearly roasted bitterness in the finish (black coffee) which also shows some peppery hops.
