Bottle from RW80 through European Beer Swap. Cheers, Robert! Aroma: Sweet, molasses, dried fruit, malty, caramel. Appearance: Low, dense head. Cloudy, dark brown liquid. Taste: A lot of sweetness with alcohol, the sweetness is not tiring, dried fruit, caramel, toffee, bitterness is medium-low - herbal and spicy type. Palate: Medium-high carbonation - bit too much gas, body is full, finish is sweet.

Schenkt een robijnrood bier met redelijke schuimkraag. De aroma’s zijn moutig, en gedroogd fruit. De smaak is moutig, kruidig, gedroogd fruit, caramel. In de nasmaak krijg je kick van de alcohol, gevolgd door de zoetigheid van rozijnen, eindigend in een hoppige bitterheid. Echt winterbier, krijg het warm door de alcohol.

Bottle from Bierkonig. Pours quite ruddy with a beige head. Aroma of warm malt. More or less medium body. Flavor is malty, with perhaps a bit of yeast, and some medium dark fruit. Pretty good flavor. Finishes just a little bit bitter.

Strong, sweet and dark, but also surprisingly sparkling. Perfect beer for a autumn evening (though ive drank this one in the summer ;))

330 ml. bottle @ home. Procured from ABC Beers. Apparently not some kind of bock – (sort of expected that when I bought this, I know, I know,…) – RB tells me that this is a SBA. Quite dark amber, little in the way of head. Nose is thick cloying, very sugary, light umami goop brown sugar, gravy, yeasty,… Taste is umami & metallic caramel goop, soy sauce, mushrooms (not in an optimal way, I freaking love mushrooms but you know what I mean), brown sugar, overly cooked dark umami fruits, very sticky & cloying herbs, light herbal bitterness in the back besides the cloying & umami features,… Thick metallic brown sugar body,… It is an honest go at Belgian brewing traditions but it doesn’t represent the best of Belgian brewing (in my opinion), too cloying, almost oddly too umami (a trait rarely found in Belgian beer granted, esp. outside of Alvinne (where it oddly does usually work), too herbal,… For me so far Texels is trying but is a bit of a bad characteristic middling affair so far, sorry. This is only my 4th beer by them. I have too admit that since becoming Vegan, I appear to have gain an odd opposition to umami beers. Not sure as to what that means.
