Dervock (889) - AUSTRALIA - MAR 28, 2016
Bottle - pours reddish brown with a small head. Aroma is sweet dried fruit, sugar and a bit of malt. Taste is burnt sugar up front then a dryer fruity finish. Moderate palate. Hides the 11% well!

Denne belgiske ale har et uklart mørkt udseende med et svagt hvidt skum. Øllen har en sød aroma og smager af sød karamel med en frugtig eftersmag. Bitter afrunding. Medium karbonering.

Aroma of malt, fruits and berries. Brown hazy appearance almost without foam. Medium-high sweetness and light-medium bitterness. Taste of fruits as well. Average lively carbonation, full body, a bit dry finish. Very tasteful!

Cuvée Du Chateau has a thin, big-bubbled, cream-colored head, a standard, shoe-leather brown appearance, with lots of beige yeast chunks, and a few lacing splotches left on the glass. The aroma is of raisin, spiced bread, prunes, walnuts, and possibly brownies. Tastes is of spiced brown bread, a touch of lemon, some very low-level, balancing hop bitterness, caramel, and even white rice (which, this beer does not contain, to my knowledge). Mouthfeel is surprisingly thin, and there is a bit of an unpleasant chalky under-taste. Cuvée Du Chateau finishes just a bit on the drying side. Booze predominates, here. RJT

rjplumer (974) - Foxboro, Massachusetts, USA - MAR 21, 2016
Sweet dark fruit and grape aroma. Deep brown color. No head at all. Bitter malt and dark fruit taste. Smooth malt feel. Like a port wine. Strong bodied but has a smooth finish. Use this one to convert wine drinkers to beer.

Flaska belgolådan. Nötbrun grumlig kulör. Lätt knäckig doft med torkad frukt, äpple, örter och belgojäst. Komplex och vinös smak. Russin, mosade övermogna äpplen. Fin munkänsla. Lätt sötma. Rund avslutning
