Icedwarf (432) - Etten-Leur, - JUL 20, 2014
Donker bruin bier met schuim. Smaak is bitter en zoet, kruidig, caramel, chokolade en noten. Erg goed bier, blijft lang hangen.

Alengrin (2464) - BELGIUM - AUG 26, 2014
One of those Bouillon beers themed around life in the Ardennes, this one with a light beige, very thick and rocky, moussy head, stable and sticky, and a deep copper colour, perfectly balanced between light and dark, misty. Yeasty aroma, some citric acid (almost certainly an infection), walnuts, caramel, honey, sherry, vanilla, lemon peel, figues, mint, cloves. Crisp fruity taste with again that citric sourness, drying the palate, built on a caramelly malt base which becomes stronger and nuttier as the palate progresses, some floral hops in the end. Hadnt it been for the souring infection, this would have been one of the best Bouillons I had so far.

Een bier met een goede smaak, niets uitzonderlijks, maar een smaak dat de meeste mensen wel lusten

Stale milky/creamy aroma, though not sour. Caramel texture. Not sweet. Touch of licorice.

BlackHaddock (4150) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - MAY 30, 2013
2nd Beer in a random tasting evening at my house on 30 May 2013 (only me here). 33cl squatty bottle (BBD of 11/2013) into a Westmalle chalice, sediment and all: looked like a Westmalle Dubbel, it was clear until the last bits flew out the bottle to give the beer a duller, fuller look. As I studied the art work on the bottle label I sniffed my beer: chilled too much, so hardly any aroma. When the beer warmed a little I got plum loaf maltiness and toffee esters. The taste is fairly sweet, plum loaf again, but with raisins and dark malty molasses all mixed up within a bowl of yeasty alcohol. I like sweet brews, so this did the trick for me: itll be too sweet for some, as most Belgian Brunes tend to be. Body wise and mouthfeel: fine, depth suited the brew and alcohol strength.

erickok (3796) - Tours (and Paris), FRANCE - MAY 16, 2013
Amber brown body with beige head. Looks nice. Cherry sweetness, very prominent, and caramel malts to go work it. Taste isnt as sweet, but also less rich, unfortunately. Red berries and dough. Foamy mouth feel. Decent brew, with an excellent profile. (33cl bottle from Bierparadijs)

Pinball (10928) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - MAR 28, 2013
flyttel#1 (packing all my beer down bf moving to another flat was too tempting, had to rate a few) 33cl bottle from beerplanet. muddy brown, large fluffy light brown to offwhite head. Flavor is nutty, yeasty, slightly spicy, nutmeg, faint slightly sourish notes, quite messy imo - but drinkable. The spicy-yeasty thing is a bit too much. not really my kind of beer - but a seminice dangerously looking babe with a sword on the label (btw. did she shit her pants?).

Abio (1630) - Waasland, BELGIUM - DEC 16, 2012
Brown-reddish coloured beer. Head seems ok, sticks good to the glass, maybe should hold a bit longer. Nuts, dark fruits, hops and malts. A bit simple it seems, but not to bad.
