jamaty (1355) - 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 (3302) - 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.
