Pours a chestnut brown with ruby edges and a light toffe colored head. The nose has candied sugars and carmelized brown sugar with a light metal twang. Very water, light yeast note and some faint pear. The taste is heavily sugar based, carmelized brown sugar and candied sugars primarily with a touch of yeast, light nut and pear in the back. Watery in taste and in body, thin and low carbonation.

webroel (3) - DENMARK - JAN 11, 2015 does not count
Dark brown with a nice long lasting foam. At first, when I tried to smell it, I was a bit disappointed, nothing hit my nose. The beer took its revenge when I tasted it. Smooth and sweet, with a slightly roasted taste. It you are not completely into stout, but still like a bit of roast, this could be the beer for you.

Alengrin (2742) - BELGIUM - DEC 11, 2014
Tasted as Tongerlo Dubbel Bruin years ago so this rating is based on old tasting notes. Authentic abbey beer with chestnut colour and medium thick, light beige head. Sweet main character: caramelly malt sweetness, candi sugar, pear, raisins, spicy hints; body is on the thin side, and there is something unmistakably metallic to it which bothers me, as well as the lack of hop bitterness to balance out the sweetness. Does not work for me but since this brand was restyled in 2009, I will soon re-rate this, like its Blond and Tripel brethren.
