kraddel (4558) - some beerplace, BELGIUM - SEP 9, 2014
Bottle At Barely Legal Tasting Room . Note ; Previously rated mistakingly under the blonde variation . Moved rating 1 month after , when I finally realized this . Pours dark brown , with a bordeaux glow. good yet fast fading white head . Smell is dark malts, bit sweet , complex, earthy , Taste is bit bitter, some sweetness . interesting flavors in the back ( would have liked them more up front ) like dark fruits, hop bitter ( the bitterness that dominates the taste is not really hoppy per se ) an almost chocolaty finish- yet not completely . The taste is a bit comparable to chocolate, but it is different . Maybe one of those descibed ingredients that I dont really know ? Ok to nice beer . bit ordinary cause the special tastes are way to much hidden in the back .

Typical Belgian brown beer. Yeasty and quite malty, with the usual fruits and herbs. It’s nice and enjoyable, but far from original.
