Alengrin (2742) - BELGIUM - OCT 26, 2014
One of Johan Brandt’s old Regenboog beers, also tasted in its original form called ’t Smisje Dubbel Dadel, which was a bit less hoppy. This later, but now also discontinued version had a light beige, loose, thinning but stable head and deep bronze colour with chocolate brownish hue, cloudy with deposit. Aroma of caramel, candied dates, plums, pear, grassy hops, ginger, cinnamon, liquorice and some DMS (red cabbage). Malty taste with refreshing fruity touches, dryer in the middle with some spiciness and a long, peppery hoppy finish as well as warming, even somewhat astringent alcohol.

rodenbach99 (3305) - Longueuil, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 14, 2014
Bouteille de 33cl. 2kw-2014. Bière brune un peu sale avec une mousse beige durable. Un nez fort intéressant de chocolat épicé avec du caramel et des dattes. La bouche est tout aussi plaisante, l’alcool est discret, les épices sont au rendez-vous, une touche de chocolat et de caramel agrémentent cette offre. Un peu sucré mais pas trop. Les dattes apportent une certaine rondeur. Fort sympathique. Bue au Saint-Bock.

kermis (5990) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - APR 6, 2013
2008 bottle shared. Pours cloudy brown with a thin tan head. Aroma of caramel, overripe dark fruit, prunes, chocolate and a slight funky sourness (maybe not aged too well). Flavour is over moderate sweet, light bitter and light sour. Medium to full bodied with soft carbonation.

dreadnord (1013) - San Diego, California, USA - APR 3, 2013
4 years old. Thanks Umberto. The pour is reddish brown with a small white head. The nose is spice like cloves and cardamom, some dark fruit a d brown sugar. The taste is medium sweet and high bitter but in a metallic oxidized way. Not good. The mouthfeel is an astringent dryness. The body is light and finish is long. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
