yngwie (17176) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - FEB 18, 2012
Bottle, 75cl. There’s a few small floaties in this one, else it’s clear, with a dark amber body and a small but firm light beige head. The aroma has some toffee and a little bit of roasted malts, as well as both fresh and dried fruits. Mostly dried though. The flavor has a pleasant sweetness, with malts, roasted notes, dried fruits and some faint bitterness. Medium to full body, dry and pleasantly carbonated. There’s a more pronounced bitterness in the end, but still it can’t really be classified as bitter. Anyway, it’s a beer I wouldn’t mind drinking again, I like the way the flavors are integrated. 120218

Matts_Property (837) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 8, 2012
Bottle. Pours a hazy dark brown/red with a small ring of head. Aroma of various autumn spices, cinnamon, nutmeg, some yeast, bread and caramel malts. Flavour of caramel malts, toasted nuts, yeast, spices, acid, orange peel, with a perfumed aftertaste. Nice to begin with but has a really unpleasant aftertaste. Don’t usually dump beer...

Alengrin (5639) - BELGIUM - JUL 26, 2014
Dubbel commissioned by the Brugs Bierinstituut, with off-white, stable head and deep bronze colour. Strongly malty aroma with caramel and nuts, some pear, liquorice, toast; taste at first a dark, rounded fruitiness, vaguely sweetish, bit of a metallic touch, caramelly and nutty malts, finishing in a light toasted bitter. Not very well-balanced to my taste.
