Parket (569) - Bruges, - MAY 2, 2012
75cl bottle, shared with friends (2x), dark brown with foamy, lacing and stable white head. Smell: some hoppy notes, caramel, dark fruits. Taste: just great: a perfect balance between the fruity of a dark ale and the powerfull hoppyness of a IPA: caramel, chocolat, yeasty, hoppy. To try on a hot summerday! It was my list bottle, but I’ll buy more of them!

Alengrin (2110) - BELGIUM - SEP 4, 2014
The brown counterpart of Lupulus, but much harder to find (I got a few bottles at the brewery, unlabelled). Off-white, creamy, sticky head over a very dark bronze beer with ruby hue. Aroma of toasted bread, dried fruits, orange peel, cocoa powder, spicy hops, liquorice. Candied fruits, rounded maltiness, caramelly, low carbo resulting in a somewhat ’flat’ mouthfeel, lightly toasted, grassy hops in the finish with a bit of sticky candi sweetness.

(Bottle, 0.75 l, BBE 12/2016, at Gastropub Tuulensuu, 20140609) The beer poured dark brown and cloudy. Its head was medium sized, white and it lasted long. Aroma had dark fruits, ripe pear, chocolate and malts. Palate was medium bodied with medium carbonation. Flavours were malts, dark fruits, soapy hops, fruitiness and bitterness. Aftertaste was malty, spicy and bitter. A nice Belgian brew with a little bit unpleasant hoppiness.
