yngwie (13946) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - NOV 8, 2014
Bottle. As Winter 2013. A dense, finger-thick beige head sits on top of an almost clear, dark amber to brown body. The aroma has a little touch of yeast and dough in the back, with dried fruits, brown sugar, caramel and some alcohol. It’s full-bodied and smooth on the palate, with flavors of dried fruits, brown sugar and some caramel. Quite pleasant this one, except some yeasty, bready notes in the aroma. 141108

Alengrin (2351) - BELGIUM - OCT 30, 2014
Dilewyns’ fourth beer, tasted as Vicaris Kerst in the autumn of 2009, served by the brewer’s daughter at the Horeca Expo of Ghent; and later as Vicaris Winter 2011. Yellowish white, moussy head, deep mahogany colour, very dark, clear. Aroma of caramel, chocolate, liquorice, bayleaf, grass, pear, thyme, candied dates; sweet fruity taste, full chocolatey and somewhat nutty maltiness, deep and mellow, spicy notes, mild roasted bitterness, herbal hops and warming alcohol in the finish. Very decent Christmas ale.
