Almost clear dark brown beer, untidy pale tan head. Palate is slightly viscous with mild fine carbonation. Sweetish brown malts, dark sugar, mild barrel induced sweetness. Light ripe fruits. Light smooth finish. Sweet and a little sticky but oddly seductive and pretty drinkable.

Countbeer (4387) - Best of E-Town mit ein Brauhaus, NETHERLANDS - MAR 2, 2014
Bottle: Served in a Chouffe glass: Very small of white creamy foamy head/bubbles on top of a deep dark ruby colored beer. Aromas of prunes, some raisin, light wood and cream touch, a light sharper touch, some dark sweets and a sprinkle of tobacco. Flavours of prunes, spices, yeast, some dark wood, toast, bread, some sharper tones like sharper grains, sharper hay. Aftertaste is malt, prunes, bread, toast, some wood and some older flowers. Low carbo, close to silky mouthfeel, medium to fuller bodied and an oily texture. Don’t know why but this beer is far from interesting, not bad tasting but again far from interesting.

77ships (3686) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - NOV 24, 2013
33 cl. bottle procured (@ De Hopduvel in Gent) together with & split bottle and costs with Kraddel. Consumed @ train. This is way better than the 8° Port BA, not stellar but here at least you get barrel, the taste is way richer & way more interesting. Nose is big on BE yeast, lots of Port, thick caramel, BE fruits, light soy sauce. Taste is sweet caramel, vanilla, warming / boozy, big on alcoholic port, light barrel, berries, touch soy sauce & chocolate, lots of brown sugar, touch chocolate. Very warming & slick. Overly boozy & simple typical BE brew. At least here you get something interesting & you get plenty of barrel even if this is bordering on overly boozy.

Douberd (2211) - Arnhem, NETHERLANDS - APR 12, 2014
Bottle 330 ml at home, into a tulip glass, ABV 12% Pours a very dark bron coloured beer, with a light beige head on top, almost two fingers in size, thick enough, with average retention and light lacing left on the glass. Aroma is a bit faint and weak, becomes better as the beer warms up a bit. Lots of dark fruits, mostly plums, some caramel, black grapes giving it some nice vinous notes. Taste is sweet, with molasses, sugar, light caramel, stewed red and dark fruits, the alcohol just notable and quite well hidden taking its strength into account. Medium thick body, soft carbonation, a bit sticky palate. Overall a quite good beer, very drinkablea and in spite of its initial sweetness it is appealing and inviting for another sip.
