A smoked abbey ale. It was intended as an imperial stout, but due to the use of 15% smoked malt, came out as another beer. Dry hopping applied.

Label says "Heer van Gramsbergen" so the name above should be corrected. Light beige, thin but stable head, very dark ruby brown colour, clear. Sweetly perfumed, bit smoky aroma of chocolate, peat, candied dates, raisins, sweet tobacco, kahlua, mint; dark fruits in the mouth, mellow mouthfeel, candi syrup, caramel candy, nuts, mouth filling and full with a roasted bitterness and slight smokiness in the end. Scotch-type ale if you ask me, but admittedly with some quadrupel- and imperial stout-like influences. Interesting.

Tasty dark beer. Malty and a bit yeasty, with a touch of smoke. Has some roasted notes as well. Hard to type, but quite nice.

Ins Glas ergießt sich ein leicht trübes dunkel bernsteinfarbenes Bier mit geringer Schaumkrone. Geruch hefig, sehr fruchtig malzig, leicht würzig, alkoholisch. Geschmack trocken malzig süß, fruchtig, alkoholisch.

Idiosynkrasie (6419) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - JAN 22, 2014
300ml bottle [Heer van Gramsbergen, 11.0% abv]. Darkest ruby red colour with average, thick, frothy to creamy, fairly lasting, moderately lacing, beige to tan head. Malty aroma has notes of dried fruit, raisin, plum, smokey notes in the background, a yeasty touch. Taste is initially dry, hints of dried fruit with subtle sweetness, later more and more smoky; long lasting, sticky finish with smoky notes, hints of ashes, ham, subtle chocolately sweetness. Rich and complex, full bodied, oily texture, sticky palate. Successful use of smoked malt in unusual context.

Intense, lingering smoky flavour with an even more intense aroma. Good colour with a good palate, but the smokiness is extreme. Too extreme for me.

Westchesterco (1824) - mclean, Virginia, USA - JUN 2, 2013
Appearance chestnut brown with a tan head. Aroma of cherries and a liquor taste of fruit and overtones of coffee and chocolate. Lingers on the palate with a nice string flavor

From a 33 cl bottle. Vintage 2011. Pours a cloudy dark brown with a thick tan head. Aroma of sour cherries. Flavors of smoked cherry wood, with subtle notes of raisin and chocolate. Nice.

sebletitje (9313) - Enghien, BELGIUM - MAR 12, 2013
30cl bouteille, bb 09/2013. Acajou, col fin et crémeux beige. Arôme est malté sur un bouquet agréable et fumé, grains, caramel, sur une note fruitée rouge et un léger houblonnage tirant vers le citronné. Palais est agréable, malté sur une note fumé discrète mais ajoutant tout de même une belle dimension en bouche. Le tout couplé à une pointe de caramel, aspect café au lait. Houblon reste en retrait ajoutant une légère amertume citronnée. La bière pourrait presque passer pour un jeune barley wine, le tout est épais presque d’avoine avec un sucre résiduel en fin de bouche. L’alcool se fait plus présent sur la fin.

Clear dark brown, very small and fading light beige head. Aroma reminds me of rye and had some smoke, malt and melasse. Taste has some additional alcohol and hop bitterness. Oily texture, medium carbonation.

At Pint winterfest 2012. Poured very deep brown with a thick off white head. Aroma of roasted malt, coffee and chocolate. Full bodied, flavour is of very smokey malt (a bit overpowering, brings the rating down a bit), vinous dark fruit with some coffee and chocolate. Dry, smokey liingering aftertaste.
