Alengrin (3549) - BELGIUM - AUG 25, 2015
Belgian-style barley wine (if this exists) matured on roasted oak, from a limited series. Thanks to Stefan for sharing. Very thick, towering and sticky, cobweb lacing, off-white head over a hazy orange blonde beer. Aroma of toasted bread and toasted wood, orange peel, iron in a ’good’ kind of way, honey, red apple, butter, grass, minerals, redcurrant, pecan nuts, pineapple. Sweetish peachy onset, hints of pineapple and orange, rounded, with a roasted, softly nutty maltiness, ’friendly’ carbo, juicy and biscuity in the middle, sweetish, ending in a mild, leafy, lightly spicy hoppiness, bittering but only softly so, and warming, rhum- or even amaretto-like, non-astringent alcohol. Not the most complex ale, but very well made, flawless, balanced, juicy and appetizing, with an elegant rotundity to it. Very enjoyable.

Holmen1 (3734) - Stavanger, NORWAY - JUN 14, 2015
Flaske delt med Ovesen på omstkkingskveld juni-15: klar rødlig kobber med flott skum som varer hele veien. Beskjeden aroma av røde bær, litt eik og humle. Smaken er fruktig og meget balansert med et lett røstet preg i tillegg, og farlig lettdrikkelig for voltstyrken - de 9,2 kjenner du først i magen. Men helhetsinntrykket er at den mangler personlighet.

Klar orangebrun med to fingre høyt beige skum. Lukter røde bær, honning og alkohol. Fruktig sødme, rund vanilje, krydderier og lett bitter brent karamell. Stikky.

Op zich een lekker biertje. Geen full body. Fruitige smaak. Beperkt bitter. Geen vast schuim.

UPDATED: FEB 20, 2015 Blond strong ale barrelt in fresh roasted oak by the brewer himself who also roast the malt himself.what i like about this One is the taste of the oak, you dont have to use former barrels of whisky or ..... to get barrelt beer .fresh roasted oak is also deliscious without the taste of bourbon or calvados,

het is erg frapant dat je daadwerkelijk het hout terug proeft in de smaak. erg lekker bier maar zeker niet voor de beginnende speciaal bier drinker heeft erg uitgesproken smaken.
