COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Brewed for Restaurant Librije. Brewed with spices and trekdrop. Librije’s bier is roodbruin tot kastanjebruin van kleur, helder met beige kleurig schuim is afgevuld in excentriek zwart gespoten champagneflessen en voorzien van het Librije kruidenbuiltje en het jaar van uitgifte. Het bestaat uit ingrediënten als gagel, jeneverbes, chilipeper en trekdrop. Donkere karamel moutsoorten geven het bier body en een zacht licht zoetige smaak met herkenbare duidelijke tonen van karamel, zoethout en drop. De nasmaak doet sterk denken aan rozijnen, salmiak en sinaasappel, terwijl de geur van rood fruit, zoethout en karamel overheerst.

@BFGM15, mocht een muntje verdelen over 2 biertjes, waar maak je dat nog mee (+1), tevens erg vriendelijke barkeeper (+2). schonk zwart, laten we zeggen zwarter dan ik had verwacht voor een spice/herb bier met donker bruine kraag. Aroma komt erg zoet, moutig en granig binnen met bovendien zoethout tonen. Smaken zijn salmiak, zoet, matig, graan, trekdroppig. matige body, trekdrop, erg zoet, vanille. .... tja .... erg zoet allemaal en de trekdrop zit er zeker in.... maar zou ik 75cl op kunnen, .... nee denkt dat dat iets teveel va n het goede is....

bartlebier (2533) - Belchium im Biersgau, GERMANY - MAR 9, 2015
75cl, gebrouwen 03/2015, courtesy of brewer@BKL ’15 - SO, merci. Beautiful seamy acajou-brown chestnut pour, good firm tainted cap. Refined sweet liquorice tea, Rooibos, raisin, plum jam, Marmite nose. Taste is like a blend of heavier dark fruit Dopplebock caramels, executed with more finesse, and the spiciness of a Belgian dark ale: sweet longcorn pepper, red grapes, cinnamon-spiced plum jam, dry yeast, Marmite-like in the finish. Would not have picked up the juniper berry or chili. Quite a nice sweet sipper.

Uit een grote fles @ beerpreuvenement Horst. Donkerbruin, matige kraag. Ruikt houtig, port. Smaakt crêmig, caramel, port, amaretto,caramel. Ik had een wat vollere smaak verwacht, vond ’m een beetje dun.

Weird and heavy licorice, some other herbal off notes... Thick sweet body, alcohol is well hidden... Gets better after eating some trek drop

Spices, liquorice is heavy (but that’s an ingredient). Warming but it has that menthol/spices, cough syrup feel that isn’t always too pleasant. From a bottle at NHBF14

At NHBF 2014. Poured dark brown with a tan head. Aroma of sweet berries. smoke and liquorice. Full body, flavour is dominated by the liquorice, some roast malt and dark fruit struggling to break through. Yuck!
