Bov (9602) - Bienne, - JUN 25, 2003
dark ruby-brown colour with a dense creamy head and a beautiful lace, caramel aroma with a touch of apple and light spicy notes, smooth and full-bodied, the initial sweetness is quickly followed by a tart bitterness, lot of carbonation, the finish is long and bitter with notes of licorice and alcohol

PapaVillum (468) - Valby, DENMARK - OCT 7, 2014
33 cl, flaske, 9,5 % ABV, købt i Den Belgiske Ølbutik i Vanløse, 7. oktober 2014. Mahogni-brun belgisk Strong Ale med 2-3 cm tykt moccafarvet skumtop, som svinder til et par mm efter en snes minutter. Lidt svag aroma af malt, belgisk gær og tørret frugt, men brygget åbner sig langsomt op under "opvarmning", hvorfor serveringtemperaturen bør være 12-15 grader. Resultatet er bl.a. at der fremkommer lidt kælder-aroma og alkohol. Dejlig smag med sødme, bitterhed og en anelse surhed. Ganske fin balance mellem smagselementerne, men dog overvægt på det søde, som er på et medium niveau. God fyldig krop med et kulsyreindhold på et medium niveau. Mundfølelsen er til det bløde og rare, og konsistensen er sticky. God solid eftersmag med god længde og et sted, hvor alkoholen titter lidt frem. Ellers ligger procenterne godt skjult. Alt i alt en glimrende belgisk Ale, som er lidt overset af de mere kendte drenge.

Alengrin (2076) - BELGIUM - SEP 30, 2014
Strongest Reinaert, since 1996, best characterized as a Belgian-style barley wine. Rocky, very dense, thick creamy, yellowish white head, nicely lacing, colour deep misty bronze. Malt sweet aroma, very yeasty, cherries, figs, pear, chocolate, vanilla, brandy, candi sugar. Taste starts fruity and estery with metallic note and woody and nutty maltiness, light spiciness in the finish, dry and bitterish with a meaty accent. Not bad, not great.
