SylvainCFC (25) - Brussels, BELGIUM - APR 23, 2016
Brune claire. Mousse homogène beige, tenue moyenne. Nez malté, caramel, prune, épices - canelle, girofle léger. Bière douce, sans excès. Pointe amère en fin de bouche. Aromes complexes : Malte, fruits bruns, caramel ou candi, fin sur chocolat noir ou café. Texture presque crémeuse. Carbonatation présente. Brune plutôt légère mais complexe.

Gangstergafje (479) - Capelle aan den IJssel, NETHERLANDS - APR 7, 2016
The beer has a delicious look. The color of the beer is beautiful brown in the naked eye and a nice slightly brown, but over all ruby red color. The beer pours beautiful layer of soft dark almond colored foam. A lot of the foam collapses, a tiny drape remains on top of the beer. The foam sticks to the glass nicely. The looks are great. The beer has a nice smell. It is a typical Belgian ale. I smell some nice aromas bittersweet roasted almonds. I also smell a strong alcohol aroma. The alcohol aroma gives a slightly sour and sweet stingy touch to the smell. The smell is a little mild though. The taste is also a little mild. There is a strong alcohol aroma in the taste, which give a delicious bittersweet almond taste. There isn’t much else, but it is enough. There is a sense of simplicity in the beer, that gives it is charms. A very good Belgian brew.

Bouteille. Nez de malt du genre caramel terreux avec des notes de rôti, de noix, léger de levures fruitées (léger de prunes et de raisins, notes de cerises noires) avec des notes de pain, de chocolat noir, de sucre brun et d’épices (notes de clou de girofle) ainsi et des traces d’alcool très doux et de réglisse noire. Moyennement ronde en bouche avec un pétillement moyen-fort et une texture légèrement crémeuse.
