Trappistenbier (52) - - JUL 1, 2008
Smisje Kuvee Elektrik 979 W has become a wonderful beer ! 9.0 vol% strong, dark to black colored beer with a subtle deep red shine. The foam is quite amazing. Light brown (beige) colored with some fantastic textures. Talking about a head, well this is one !! Amazing ..... After some while, the foam evolves into rocky solid structures, similar to the famous Duvel head, but this time more darker colored. Tasting gives a Trappist Westvleteren 8 appearance !!! 80 IBU hop bitter. Sweetness mainly coming from rich use of dark candy sugar, but still the aftertaste is quite dry. The hoppy bite, in combination with the sweet candy sugar is so typical for a dark Trappist beer. In this case I also notice some well balanced roasty malts. The new Regenboog yeast makes it even that more delicious. No doubt, the recipe that is used here is a true wonder of brewing craftsmanship. Johan, GREAT job ! This is simply a masterpiece !

Alengrin (4148) - BELGIUM - OCT 26, 2014
’Massive’ ale (second version) with creamy, stable head and deep dark bronze colour, initially clear but hazy with deposit. Aroma of chocolate liqueur, peppery hops, dates, kahlua, butterscotch, ginger, banana. Rich candied fruit sweetness, banana, ripe pear, spicy with sharpish carbo, full and thick chocolatey maltiness, nutty as well, hop bitter finish with warming but not astringent alcohol. Well done.

Skinnyviking (8555) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - OCT 9, 2014
Bottle at Den Tatoverede Enke. Low fluffy white and quickly disappearing head. Hazy dark brown body. Wineous roasted malt caramel plum aroma. Dark dried fruit roasted malt caramel relatively sweet flavor with low carbonation and a long sweet finish. Well balanced so that the high alcohol percentage was not too dominant.
