Pelzky (8) - Szczecin, POLAND - SEP 14, 2014 does not count
Bottle. Poured into trappist glass, dark brown color with tall, creamy and lasting head. Good lacing. Aroma of coffe and roasted malts with chocolate and burnt sugar notes. Taste is mostly the same with pleasant, warming alcohol and creamy mouthfeel. I bought this beer haphazardly and I’m surprisingly satisfied. Reminds me more Imperial Stout rather than Belgian Ale but it’s really good.

Yeasty spicy. Alcoholic bready taste. Heavy mouthfeel maybe due to my reflux problems.

Dark brown, hazy colour and big beige head. Aroma and taste have light chocolate, coffee, red fruit, vanilla, gingerbread, hoppy bitterness and some irony off-tones. Dry chocolate aftertaste. Lively carbonation, good body, prickling mouthfeel.

PapaVillum (439) - Valby, DENMARK - SEP 11, 2014
330 ml, flaske, 8,2 % ABV, købt i Den Belgiske Ølbutik i Vanløse, 11. september 2014. Mørkebrun ufiltreret Belgian Strong Ale med fin moccafarvet 3 cm tyk skumkrone, som langsomt svinder til mindre. Aromaen er noget udefinérbar. Brændt malt, bondegård, dadler, lidt fjerne chokolade-noter. Smagen er lige dele sødme og bitterhed og balancen er fin mellem elementerne. Fin krop, som er fyldig og med et indhold af kuldioxid, som er under medium og giver en blød følelse i munden. Øllet ligger smagsmæssigt mellem en Stout og en Belgian Strong Ale og uden at blæse én omkuld, er det en fin øl, som skal prøves igen.
