fiulijn (17458) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 20, 2012
Bottle from Beer Planet, Brussels, bb 19.11.11, this shop seems to often sell old bottles
Dark brown color, cloudy, with generous creamy head. The aroma of caramel shows evident signs of oxidization. It has a quite good caramel and malt flavor, with moderate sweetness, and hints of oxidization that are not too disturbing; the bitterness level is quite low.
Pleasant drink, well suitable for cheese. Reminds me of the old style Belgian beers from the 90’s.
Probably at its peak of maturation.
