UPDATED: MAR 21, 2009 This one really tested me, as i knew nothing about it style-wise. The name lead me to think it was a doppel-bock but upon tasting i realised that i was thrown a curve ball! Pours dark, dark brown with a substantial tan coloured head that left thick lacing. Nose had alot of dark fruit, prune, raisin etc with substantial dark malt. Palate was all over the shop, significant dark malt, almost like sweetened espresso and tangy bitter roast. Made me think it was an oatmeal stout. Body was thin and finish was very short. Donít know whats going on here, pretty sure it was oxidised...

sinkas (293) - Perth/Fremantle, AUSTRALIA - JUL 15, 2007
Sampled from bottle at WABA Beer dinner, Applecross, WA Not much in the way of any Belgina characteristics. Tastes like a decent Dunkel, chocolately and dark.

ALLOVATE (2912) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - NOV 10, 2006
Tasted on draught at Ironbark one of many Sundays I have lazed away here.
Pours a tawny, deep brown with just a slight haze showing in the lights and very fine carbonation giving the signal itís not all doom and gloom. Head, a fluffy, beige, bubbly pad, rose but slipped away quickly leaving only minor lacing. Ripe, savoury, dried fruits like sultanas, raisins and figs, and a touch of burnt stick greets the nostrils quite generously. Itís similar in the mouth, very savoury, malty and fruity yet in a very tight way not relenting, but absorbing, this is sessionable and I now see why it sells out. Bad boy creeps up on you. Palate is filled with woody, malty Melanoidins; edge has a sharpness of bitter fruit and this continues to join the long, sweet aftertaste. Swallow has a touch of astringency but it is all simple fruit-mince pie in the swallow. Body is quite light, the carbonation light enough to enjoy but it does reek of bottom-fermentation. It is oh-so close to a Doppel-bock. Very nice stuff though. (6.5 and 7.0%ABV, rating same for both batches)
