75cl bottle thanks to onkelgobber. Pours opaque black with a slim but attractive head. The nose has nuts and praline. The taste has more hazelnuts, toffee, some spice, ginger cake. The palate is full bodied, with a lovely long texture that leans into the finish. Overall, absolutely gorgeous.

From the very old notes, hence this is not a real rating, but more just a mark to myself that I have tried this at one point. Very nice sweet and boozy, roasty, and spicy brew.

Aroma and flavor of biscuit, spice and yeast. Good color and weighty palate. This had some age on it so there was a drop in the carbonation; however, it held up fairly well.

Bottle. This one really mellowed out after a few years. Poured a hazy brown color with a small fluffy head. Aroma was sweet malts, some lingering spices still remain. Light roast. Sweetness, like toffee, with a little booze lingering.

Alengrin (3401) - BELGIUM - SEP 2, 2014
Complex ’massive ale’ in Belgian style with a long list of ingredients including four hop varieties, wheat flakes and candi syrup. Off-white, dense head, very dark burgundy colour, hazy. Strong aroma of dried spices and caramel with hints of orange peel, cloves, bayleaf, nutmeg, caramel, passion fruit, port wine, pear and hay. Dry and tingling spiciness in the onset (dried citrus peel), deep caramelly and chocolatey maltiness, candied fruits, yeast bitterness especially in the end, finishing with leafy hops and warming, sherry-like alcohol. Must be a great provisional beer with amazing ageing potential.

onceblind (5732) - Denver, Colorado, USA - DEC 27, 2013
Aged 2 years. Heavy dark brown pour, no real head to speak of. Nose is a bit restrained but contains some chewy plum and a touch of light herbal Christmas spices. Flavor is dark and plummy, with a bright cheesy malty middle with a wee herbal tone throughout. Not necessarily plummy, just a bit sweet and fruity-malty. A bit booze forward without the necessary depth.
