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!

Kittenbieer (64) - LYON, FRANCE - OCT 3, 2016
Robe ambrée surmontée d’une mousse ivoire moyennement persistante.Le nez nous offre des arômes de malts et d’alcool qui amčnent en bouche de douces saveurs maltées et vineuses.Peu de caractčre pour cette bičre qui reste légčre et nous laisse sur des notes agréables mais éphémčres.

Robe cuivrée avec un col de mousse de persistance moyenne. Un nez léger avec des notes vineuses. le goűt est aussi un peu vineux avec une petite touche de céréales. L’ensemble manque un peu de corps et l’arričre bouche est courte mais agréable.

berkshirejohn (6067) - Bracknell, Berkshire, ENGLAND - JUN 19, 2016
33cl bottle from Hopduvel, Ghent. A deep reddish brown colour with a billowing beige head that settles back to a thin covering; sour grainy aroma with some caramel in the background; soft and smooth in the mouth with a taste of dates and burnt sugar; then a warming fruity finish, with lingering dates. A pleasant beer to sip slowly.

Hamirubi (568) - Waarschoot, BELGIUM - MAY 21, 2016
33cl bottle at home (22 V 2016). Extremely gushing brew, although with a swiftly diminishing foamy yellow to beige, unstable head. The beer’s colour is pretty dark brown to black, coffee looking even, yet very clear and vivid. The nose has clear Belgian yeast features, with some brown sugar, rosewater and malt notes too. The mouthfeel is more than a that oxidated, not really enjoyable, but the sugarish and malt flavours come to save the brew. Fairly sweet and somehow sticky, with a nice alcoholic body - although I believe this body is a bit faint or waterish. Not that complex, to say at least. The bitter tones are perfect, the slightly creamy ending is more than nice. There are a few fruit flavours in here as well, very well hidden behind the caramellish, sweetish armour. A nice brew - yet it keeps on being a Huyghe brew.

jamaty (1915) - Madrid, SPAIN - APR 22, 2016
Marron rojiza. Espuma manchada, efervescente. Aroma tostadp, dulce y con notas de cereza. Cuerpo moderado. Combina base acaramelada con un tono frutal de ligera acidez. Gas quizŕs excesivo. Esconde bien el alcohol.

Fules (826) - Gyöngyös, HUNGARY - MAR 16, 2016
Monumentális, tömör, örökké tartó, bézs színű hab, barna szín. Kissé szúrós, enyhén karamelles illatvilág, és ahogy melegszik, beköszön egy fanyar gyümölcsös vonal is. Ízében a karamell maláta dominál, de nem túl tolakodóan, mellette enyhe savanyú és keserű, valamint némi fahordós aromák is érezhetőek. Utóíze hosszú, enyhe keserű, alig érezhető dohossággal és savanyúval. Nem rossz, de nem is nyűgözött le, valahogy nincs igazi összhang. Talán még érnie kellene.

The_Osprey (6574) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 24, 2015
330ml bottle in Blaendulais, gold foil, 7.3%, BB Dec 2017. Thanks Sarah. As ’Artevelde Grand Cru’. Very dark reddy brown, pretty clear, sparkling, thin bubbly tan head. Aroma is red grape juice, candi sugar, touch of cherry, a little musty. Body is light, foamy, tingly carbonation. Too foamy and a touch rough on the stomach. Taste is a little medicinal, sweet, some plum and raisin, soft finish with some booze. Not bad overall.
