Glouglouburp (6104) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 10, 2009
In short: A sweet, slightly woody and slightly spicy Belgian dark ale. Quite drinkable
How: Bottle 330ml, probably 1 year old or so. Drank a few months before best-before date
The look: Cloudy brown body topped by a little beige ring of foam
In long: Nose of molasses and a light presence of Christmas beer type of spices (cloves, pepper, nutmeg). Taste trades the molasses of the nose for toffee, bread crust and liquorice candies. Nice woody notes coming from either the malts or the hops (I don’t know). Very light spicy notes that add to the flavour spectrum without being distracting. Finish is very short with sweetness and woody notes. Body is a bit thin. Despite its many flavour elements the beer is not very tasty. A bit too sweet for my taste. Another Belgian micro-brew low on hops. I hear that in Alabama the label is considered sexually explicit, even a turn-on for many.

Bart (2938) - Brussels, BELGIUM - FEB 1, 2009
Brown red coloured beer with some light carbonation and an average brown head. Rather special aroma, tanines of ripe fruits, somewhat smokey, and yeasty hints. Full creamy palate. Finish is creamy bitter, herby roasted bitter, long ending with caramel malty dry hints. Strangly balanced, lots of different impressions.

SHIG (3868) - Wasilla, Alaska, USA - JAN 3, 2009
Bottle: Poured a pitch black-brown with a light brown head. Aroma is fruit and dark malts. Taste is a dark chocolate and nice fruity touch that breaks up the richness with some viney touch. Finish is gentle but memorable.

From tap. Pours clear and golden amber with a diminished tan head. Fruity and mil caramel malty aroma. Light breadish flavoured with a light bitterness and spice note coming through. Light spiced an malty finish with a whiff of chocolate. Smooth finish. Light spiced into the far finish.

MiP (14046) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - OCT 28, 2008
Draught, 6.5%. Clear dark brown colour. Small head. Good fruity and caramelly flavour. A bit of toffee and a hint of yeast. Slightly sweet, but OK balanced by the alcohol.

Sammy (9314) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 12, 2008
Thanks Probst for this Bierophelie buying club participation. Pours amberish with bare minimal drops of head (after it calms) and lace. A bit boozy and carmel aroma. Lively carbonation, medium plus mouthfeel. Secondary yeast. Spice in taste.Satisfying overall. Tasty and unusual bock. Very good drinkability. Bee-aye 3200.

This bottle might have been slightly long in the tooth but I reckon it still showed quite well. Quite brown with a thin head, a little darker in colour than expected. Nose shows meaty malts, stinky fruits and hints of spice. Surprisingly dry to taste with salt and spice, and maybe a hint of balsamic vinegar. I’ll put the latter character down to age but I though it complemented the beer quite well. This house is very consistent with its offerings and this beer gives me no cause to change that opinion.
