Alengrin (3019) - BELGIUM - OCT 26, 2014
Specialty beer with yellowish beige, equal, moussy, sticky and stable head and very dark chestnut brown colour with ruby hue, misty. Aroma reveals a strong spicy sweetness of gingerbread, star aniseed, cinnamon and mint, some ’speculoos’ too, chocolate, cloves, blackcurrant, candied cherries, liqueur. Explicit sugary and syrupy sweetness in the mouth, soft and rounded mouthfeel, becoming more spicy but in a ’pastry’ kind of way, with ginger, aniseed and cinnamon impressions, a certain leatheriness and woodiness, resinous, port-like with weak hoppiness in the finish, which is dominated by the lingering initial candi sweetness. Unusual, very sweet but nevertheless interesting. Recommendable for those who enjoy thick, utterly sweet yet rich beers.
