Alengrin (1743) - BELGIUM - AUG 27, 2014
’Massive ale’ since 1994, like its blonde counterpart (the amber and Christmas versions were added later); a dark brown bear with stable, off-white head and yeasty and malty character, some candied fruits, caramel, unfortunately DMS as well, malty taste, sweetish with yeasty notes and warming alcohol in the finish. The quality seems to vary, time to re-rate this.

Maris (989) - Canberra, AUSTRALIA - AUG 17, 2014
From a 330ml bottle on 17/8/2014. Pours a clearish brown with a smallish head which disappears quickly. Has a pleasant malty nose with caramel, toffee and rye bread. The flavour follows suit with more caramel, toffee and rye bread, along with a dash of dark fruit and yeast. Finishes with a modest bitterness. The body is quite full and the carbonation average to lively. Not overly complex but still a very solid brune.

Een goed donker bier, zoals een donker bier moet zijn. Vol van smaak, een meevaller

Andy_ (689) - Tampere, FINLAND - AUG 3, 2014
Reddish brown clear beer with blonde head. Aroma has toffeeish sweetness, malts, anise and yeast. Flavor is malty sweet and licoricy with some anise. Quite full palate with quite strong carbonation. Finish is malty sweet with feel of alcohol. Quite basic dark Belgian beer.

Olipa hyvä. Vähän liian lämmin. Mutta varmasti kannattaa toisenkin kerran koittaa. Nami.

adster (345) - HUNGARY - JUL 18, 2014
Vörösborszerű színben pompázó ital figyelemreméltó illattal, mely áfonyalekvár, péksütemény, mézeskalács könnyed aromáját rejti magában, mindezt rendkívül elegánsan, cseppet sem eltúlzottan, kóstolásra csábító titokzatossággal. Íze tökéletesen beváltja a hozzá fűzött reményeket: fantasztikus elegyét alkotja a legkifinomultabb zamatoknak. Vörös gyümölcsök, fekete szeder húsa adta visszafogott édesség és enyhe savanykásság érezhető egy üde karakterű, nagyszerűen eltalált szénsavtartalmú testben, miközben a komló lágy körvonala foglalja keretbe és teszi teljessé ezt a hibátlan ízélményt.

Dark color, high head. Once again overcarbonated. Carbonation killed taste of this beer. Aroma is malty with notes of spices. Bitter malty aftertaste.

Botella de 33 cl De el c. Ingles. Tomada por ultima vez en octubre de 2008 (fecha de cons pref para 20-10-2009). Cuerpo medio con 8.1 vol algo espeso aunque fácil de beber. Normal, se podría repetir.

Lambister (208) - FINLAND - JUN 15, 2014
Large bottle from Alko. Hazy dark brown color with small brownish head. Nose of sweet malts, raisins and plums. Taste has also sweet malts, plums and raisins which makes this even too sugary and syrupy to my taste.
