ardeo (94) - Flémalle, BELGIUM - DEC 29, 2015
UPDATED: APR 2, 2016 Bière complexe dégageant beaucoup d’arômes allant vers l’épice. En bouche, le sucre domine et l’ensemble est plutôt déséquilibré. La Papesse vaut tout de même la peine d’être testée pour celui qui aime ce type de produit. Re-rate : quelque chose de particulier dans ce breuvage breuvannois. Toujours sucrée mais pas si déséquilibrée que lors de mon 1e test. Je reprends une ’Papesse’ un de ces jours !

Jultsu (580) - TAMPERE, FINLAND - DEC 5, 2015
Tummanruskea, mieto vaahto. Makea typpinen tuoksu, sama jatkuu suutuntumassa. Makeaa voimakasta alkoholisuutta, runko jotenkin ohuehko, vaisu jälkifiilis. Odotin enemmän.

Bottle 0,33ltr: Headless dark brown colored brew with an sweet bitter taste, hints of caramel, mocha, brown sugar and red berries. Medicinal looks have this beer, good beery coughsyrup like brew.

erickok (5039) - Leuven, BELGIUM - SEP 11, 2015
Headless, murky, amateurish looking. Figs, brown sugar, maple syrup, oranges, some cookie spices. Fruity and typical Belgian. Taste is sweet and quite sticky yet fulfilling with a nice justifying alcohol warmth. Enjoyed this better than I should. If there was such a thing. No. It’s a good luscious Belgian brown ale. (33cl bottle at Berthom Tours)

Alengrin (4163) - BELGIUM - SEP 6, 2015
’Massieve ale’ by Millevertus with thick and frothy, yellowish white, dense, lacing head and deep purplish burgundy colour, like a dark red wine, with tiny bits of yeast floating around in it. Strong aroma of milk chocolate, banana, brown sugar, FFF (freshly fermented farmland), raisins soaked in brown rhum, overripe pear and peach, medlar, toast, chestnut, caramel, hints of coffee grounds, port, liquorice, dried thyme, fried egg and gingerbread. Concentratedly sweet onset, candied dates, dark candi sugar, ripe banana, some bubblegum even, with a light sourish edge to it, but still cloying a bit; soft carbo, thick and creamy mouthfeel, spicy yeastiness with somewhat phenolic character, layers of caramelly and honeyish malt sweetness, bit toasted and chocolatey in the end, where it meets an earthy, peppery, spicy hop bitterness providing enough balance against the ongoing sweetness (and deep yeasty sourishness), and the expected glow of rhum- and port-like alcohol warmth, stretching deep into the throat but not really burning, only ’heating’. Very rich quadrupel, rivalling the great trappist quadrupels but not achieving the same amount of finesse and complexity; there is something off in the aroma, but there are enough redeeming features to it not to disturb. Slow wintery sipper, I’d say, delivering what it is supposed to.
