COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Artevelde Grand Cru features a dark red-brown colour, a firm, creamy, and cream-coloured head. The smell of roasted malt, caramel and the sweet fruitiness of the alcohol give this beer the perfect aroma. Caramel, sweet fruitiness and a pleasant bitterness are the predominant flavours. Its aftertaste reveals a pinch of toffee and date. Ingredients: water, barley malt, hops, yeast. Triple fermented.

slapknot (8) - Safety Harbor, Florida, USA - JAN 2, 2007
2003 Vintage from Sam the Beer Man. Bottled opened with little carbonation, poured out into glass with inch cream colored foam that slowly dissipated, leaving only a thin ring around the glass. Appearance is dark mahogany, murky; the color of water from a rusty pipe. The aroma is red sauce (canned tomato paste) and candi sugar, although both are not intense, perhaps because of it’s age. When taken the beverage is warm in the mouth, tasting sweetness from candi, a bit of coriander spice and toasted caramel malt. Aftertaste is dark fruit—cherries noted from the top, and definitely the pit of plum as it washes down. Both alcohol and musty yeast are present in the taste, however for it’s strength that alcohol taste is surprising; the blood-like “must” seems to be common to the Family Huyghe Brouwerij (Delirium Noel). Enjoyed in Goblet. On a side note, watch out for Boise State Broncos in ’07!

Mooie donkere kleur met een caramelachtige schuimkraag. Lekkere donkere smaak en neigt wat naar noten.

eManu (482) - Kuala Lumpur & Brussels, BELGIUM - JUN 15, 2015
Pours a dark brown to almost black color, with an beige creamy head. Aroma of roasted malts and spices. Flavors of roasted malts, hints of walnuts, woody, creamy, raisins, and chocolates. Creamy body, slightly sweet and bitter. Pleasant balance of flavors, nice medium body and easy to drink. Very nice brew, with a finish like velvet, making a pleasant ale to drink. I will drink again.

SilverfoX (686) - Norfolk, ENGLAND - JAN 6, 2015
caramel, fruit and nuts, a hazy browny-red body with no head, it tastes like it smells with a bitter edge to stop it being too creamy. this is a very good beer.

Bue en bouteille de 33cl. Nez amande et malt. Acide au palais. Peu corpulente, alcool sous-dosé. Pas terrible.
