kraddel (5198) - some beerplace, BELGIUM - DEC 5, 2015
75 cl bottle. Pours clear, very dark, caramel brown. Small white head. Smell is bit sweet, rather simple. Taste is metallic ( very, very metallic ! ) bit sweet. some caramel tones. Tastewise, this is OK. Simple brown ale. Appart from the metallicness, that is. But again, AGAIN, this has such a big amount of carbonation, it simply repels me. I’d still drink this, after swirling this, it does turn better, but I simply do not understand why so many belgian brewers put so damn much carbo in their beer...

jamaty (1614) - Madrid, SPAIN - JUN 10, 2015
Bonito color chocolate, muy oscuro. Un dedo de espuma cremosa, que se va pronto pero deja la tipica película. Aroma ligero a chocolate y pan tostado. Buen cuerpo con mucha carbonatación. Sabor predominante dulce, sin exagerar, en medio de la efervescencia y con muchos más tonos que dan bastante complejidad. Uva, fruta roja, malta tostada, chocolate...El alcohol se deja notar y redondea el conjunto. Gran ale belga

Douberd (3981) - Arnhem, NETHERLANDS - JUN 2, 2015
(St. Sebastiaan Dark) From a heavy stone bottle, served into a tulip, ABV 6.9% Deep mahogany brown colour on the body, tall and thin tan head, with good retention though. Aroma has caramel, dates, raisins, metal, sugars. Taste is sweet, wit caramel, metallic notes, sugar, red and dark fruits, some nutty touches. Medium thin body with good carbonation. Not bad, nothing great either.
