COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Countbeer (4065) - Best of E-Town mit ein Brauhaus, NETHERLANDS - MAY 10, 2012
Bottle: Abv 11% Medium tan head, changes quick into an almost closed tan lacing on top of a deep dark ruby colored beer with some black tints. Smell chocolate, fresh roasted and smoked malts, spices/herbs, hint of liquorice and something like grainy (light liquor) sweetness. Taste Is pretty soft and creamy with a nice mixed bunch of ingredients like chocolate drenched hops, toasted barleys, smoked malts, nice bitter (nothing irritating to be detected, yes!), some spices and light warmth (alcohol notes), something light sticky, nice hoppy grassy touch and a gentle toasted light smokey grainy sprinkle on top. all very gentle and very well balanced! Spices, roasted malts, grass and chocolate bitter in the aftertaste. Low carbo, soft mouthfeel, full body and a creamy sticky texture. Very good beer, though the smell is very nice, the flavours are not as strong but the spicy alcohol notes jumps out but not in an annoying manner. If it wasn’t for the small info note here on Ratebeer, you could definitely classify this beer as an (Imperial) Stout. Alcohol is well hidden.

Idiosynkrasie (3242) - 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.
