MesandSim (7117) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 8, 2007
A Mes rate: 33cl bottle from Utobeer (I think).
Opaque dark brown with a bubbly tan head that was initially huge and uncontrolable but settled in seconds like some chemical experiment to a thin covering. Burnt malt aroma with some obvious caramel and fruity notes. Caramel comes to the front in the mouth but is not as overly sweet as my first taste had me think. Burnt becomes roasty where the malts are concerned and they are fairly decent. Slight bitterness pirckles the edges of the tongue and the overall impression is pretty good all round. Sadly it is let down considerably by a heavily over carbed mouthfeel. Either I have an unusual bottle or Im quite amazed as to how many 4s have been given for the palate. Shame because I really like it elsewhere. Has a slight aged feel to it too. Dusty and pleasing. Lovely delicate burn on the way down from the alcohol too. Close but not quite close enough.

Bottle: Poured a dark brown with reddish hnt, fast acting light brown head. Aroma is sweet malt, sugars, possible caramel. The taste roasted malt very sweet, but hoppy tingle is very nice also.

(Bottle 33 cl) Beautiful, clear, orangey brown close to mahogany. Nice and lasting beige head. Aroma of roasted malt and alcohol. A fairly solid and vinous body with some notes of dried fruit and lots of roasted malt and some port. Dry, lightly hoppy finish. Quite delicate really. 041106

schuimkroaat (427) - Leuven, BELGIUM - JUN 1, 2006
33 cl bottle. Best before 2 years after the bottling date, which is...? Murky red-brown with a multitude of whirling bubbles. The initially abundant and boisterous beige head quickly collapses to thick lace. Nose of yeast and warm, dry biscuits with roasted walnuts. Sweet and a bit tart in a fruity way, with roasted coffee and nutty flavours. Very gentle bitter aftertaste, reminding of chicory powder. A surprisingly dry and sharp finish with strong carbonation and light alcoholic warmth.

Bottle. Hazy red brown coloured with a medium sied off white head. Aroma of ascorbic acid, malts and spices. Sweet flavour of malts, caramel, fruits and dried fruits.
