yngwie (12605) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JUL 29, 2011
Bottle, at De Bierkamer. It pours a hazy, brown body under a big, off-white to beige head. The aroma is sugary, with caramel, spices and hints of alcohol and cellar. There’s a nice bitterness in the flavor, it blends sweetness and spices quite nice, and there’s also a touch of yeast. Full-bodied and warming. Spiced and warming finish. Although quite sweet, this is a pretty nice beer I could drink more of. 110430

Beer4000 (4309) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JUL 4, 2011
330 ml bottle @ De Bierkamer. Dark brown body with a small beige head. Relatively light aroma of sweet malt, caramel and fruit. Flavor is sweet, but feels surprisingly light. Caramel malt, candy, spices, fruity and hint of warming alcohol. Noting really special but quite nice anyway.

Brown sugary aromas. Flavors for sweet sugary malts. Finishes a little metallic. Overall a solid dark belgian.

25/05/2011 33cl bottle @ home - BB: not indicated on bottle or cap (2011-226)

Cloudy dark brown beer, crackling (sound) beige head, stable and non adhesive. Aroma: sweet caramel, alcohol, ripe fruits, some sour berries, roasted malts. MF: good carbon, medium to full body. Taste: sweet malts, fruity, some sour red berries, caramel. Aftertaste: more tartness balancing the sweetness, little bitterness with spices. Some alcohol warming the back of the throat.

5000 (6023) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - JUN 2, 2011
Bottle:   A darker amber of sorts, moderate frothy off-white head, spotty lacing.   Nice aroma of sweet breadiness and mild dark pitted fruit.   Sweet maltiness up front, very much like rustic bread.   Very fruity, both in the dark pitted fruit and even in the lighter colored fruit.   This one is pretty sweet overall.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate.   For a Belgian Brown Ale, this one was better than most.   Sweeter, with a bit more punch than usual.   I can dig it!

Rune (7345) - Tromsø, NORWAY - JUN 2, 2011
330ml bottle from the take away service at De Bierkamer. Dense, fawn coloured head. Hazy, brown body. Aroma of sweet malts with modest notes of tart fruits. Earthy malts, sweet candies and notes of yeast in flavour. Gets too sweet (shared with Finn, hotel room in Aalst 30.04.2011).

sebletitje (6326) - Enghien, BELGIUM - APR 18, 2011
bouteille 33cl brune/ambré couleur de glaise, col soyeux beige. Pratique pour cette bière du potier Arôme malt, fruits noirs, sucre candi avec note de levure et épices, malt rappelle aussi la pâte de cookie. En bouche, ressent bien le sucre candi, et ce que j’apprécie vraiment la levure qui est sans rappeler une levure de trappiste pour une bière qui est d’ailleurs très proche d’une triple. Laisse sur le palais des bonnes notes de fruits; pruneau sec avec un peu de réglisse. Bière épaisse en bouche, malt caramel et biscuité, avec touche de mélasse et de sucre candi et épices. Levure apporte quant à elle un palais très agréable qui fait que cette bière rivalise avec une bonne abbaye ou monastère.

crossovert (6339) - Illinois, USA - MAR 7, 2011
11.2 oz Belgian mini-style bottle, not the stubby like in the picture. Pours a dense, dark brown with slight hues of reddish brown on the edges. The head is huge and tan and recedes very slowly. Just a mountain of foam up there. Some lacing forms as the head slowly deflates. The smell is a good blend of dark fruits and slightly dark, bready malts. It has a heck of a raisinbread scent, and the slightest bit of tartness on the nose. There are some spices in there too, it is a rich, bready smell. The flavor is very solid. There is a huge tart/fruity prescence here, there are notes of lemon, raisin, cherry, and plum along with thick bready malts that have a bit of roastiness to them. It has a ton o alcohol that isn’t really well hidden, and it is a bit sweet however. Definitely more of a winter warmer-type Belgian, not the best, but it will warm you up for sure.
