This one is different than the Bieropholie version as it has a different yeast and hops. It has also some difference through the fermentation process. The malts and the honey are not exactly the same. And, of course, this one has less alcohol. They have the same type of aromas, but some esters are really not the same.

Bottle. Light gusher. Dark brown pour with creamy off white head. Aroma of cherries, grapes and chocolate, lots of chocolate actually, some light honey notes. Taste of dark fruits, cherries, plums, grapes, honey. Body is a bit watery but carbonation is fine.

Bottle. Clear dark amber body, small beige head with average retention. Sweet, malty aroma: toffee, honey, molasses, figs, dried berries. Taste is subtle and complex: honey, caramel, licorice, hints of leather and herbs. Very nicely done.

Idiosynkrasie (6527) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - SEP 6, 2016
500ml bottle. Hazy, mahogany coliur with small to average, thick, creamy, fairly lasting and lacing, sulphureous beige head. Sweet-ish, malty aroma, notes of caramel, toffee, rock sugar, treacle, candied almond. Taste is sweet malty, nuttily, notes of caramel, malt lozenge, toffee, rock sugar, treacle, molasses, candied almond; bitter hoppy interludes; warming alcoholic finish. Oily, viscous texture, slightly sticky palate. Very sweet, but not in an unpleasant way.

Shared bottle. Hazy brown pour with tan head. Caramel malt in the nose, some nuts, hops. Tasted like a nutty and hoppy scotch ale, good body.

Bière en bouteille de 500ml de style écossaise au miel à 10.8%. Cette bière opaque d’un rouge foncée n’a pas vraiment de col mousseux. Au nez on peu sentir les fruits confis (prunes et raisins) ainsi qu’un malt caramel. On peut déjà percevoir que la bière va être sucré. En bouche le caramel et le miel sucré prennent le dessus. L’arrière goût ne demeure pas très longtemps en bouche. J’ai adoré cette bière que j’ai dégusté dans verre ballon à une température de 10 degré environ. Je recommande cette bière.

Dégustée en fût en side-by-side avec la version bourbon. Voire cette dernière pour mon appréciation complète.

biirusaikou (2585) - - JAN 11, 2016
Draught at Bilboquet. Rich dark malt, honey, toasted bread, scotch, nuts, gentle sweet finish. Very solid brew with little trace of alcohol, would recommend hunting the barrel-aged version though.
