PapaVillum (585) - Valby, DENMARK - NOV 28, 2014
33 cl, flaske, 10,0 % ABV, købt i Belgisk Bryg i Emdrup, 29. november 2014. Mørk sirupsfarvet og ufiltreret (smuk og grumset) Belgian Strong Ale med fin offwhite skumtop på ca. 4 cm tykkelse. Svinder langsomt ned til 1 cm penge (!?) Rolig i glasset. Let syrlig og sødlig aroma af honning, alkohol, tropisk frugt, koriander, urter. Vinøs. Fuldendt og kompleks smag med masser af kraftige indtryk. Krydret og igen kraftig sødme og ganske syrlig, men aldrig for meget. Balance opretholdes med en tilpas portion bitterhed. Konsistensen er sticky og øllet føles ganske frisk med et middel indhold af kuldioxid. Rund fyldig krop og en eftersmag, der lader alle danske konsum-juleøl noget at ønske. Lang bittersød og vedholdende. Øllet fremstår sødt, men krydderiernes tyngde får det til at balancere perfekt og gør det aldrig kvalmt. Slowdrinking at it's best!

Alengrin (2885) - BELGIUM - OCT 25, 2014
Tasted as Tsjeeses Reserva and as Tsjeeses Reserva Bourbon Barrel Aged - according to this site, that is apparently the same thing. Luxury version of the already great Tsjeeses with a thinnish but creamy, off-white head and misty orange peach blonde colour. Very complexely perfumed bouquet of cider, peach juice, gingerbread, orange peel, yoghurt, bread, eggs, meat broth, oak tannins, cognac, pineapple; apricot and pineapple in the onset, refreshing, citrus, caramelly and soft honeyish malt sweet backbone, gingerbread-like complex spiciness, yeastiness, soft herbal hop bitterishness in the end with a brandy- and indeed bourbon-like alcohol effect, only adding to complexity without becoming obnoxious. Pimped Tsjeeses indeed and, really, a world class masterpiece.

UPDATED: DEC 16, 2014 330ml bottle served in a Duvel Tulip glass. Lot C from 8/2010. A: Pours a deep amber color which is slightly cloudy. Forms a huge yellow creamy head with good retention and many lacings formed and left. A thin layer remains for long time and the lacings are quite molasses S: Absolutely delicious nose. Sweet, spicy and veeery woody. Strong notes of Bourbon. Fruity with notes of grapes. Very malty too. Some flowery hops and alcohol T: Perfect. Slightly sweet upfront. Very fruity with strong notes of grapes, oak, caramel malts, whiskey and spices (black pepper and cinammon). Considerable hops bitterness in the end M: Heavy and molasses body. Medium carbonation. Bittersweet and woody aftertaste O: Excellent beer. Very whiskey and spicy. A beer to be slowly appreciated [ BA Review @ 11/17/2012 ]

KoNrRiI (682) - Ĺrhus, DENMARK - OCT 10, 2014
UPDATED: FEB 18, 2015 0.33 bottle. Light brown, hazy color and a medium, brownish head. Weird malty aroma with a hint of alcohol, quite a lot of dark fruits, some cheese, and crackers. Very sweet taste but somehow it fits; again caramel, fruits, spices, and cheesy crackers. Medium body, thick texture, and soft carbonation. Finish is medium long and quite sweet as well with hints of bourbon. Overall a splendid beer but it could be more balanced, especially when it comes to the aroma.
