Trappistenbier (52) - - NOV 25, 2013
I always say: "When you really like a beer, you buy a whole crate of it". And thats exactly what this beer achieves. Uncapping already gave flowery perfumes. Pouring gives a creamy texture, resulting in a rich, creamy, beige colored head. A head that stays ! Creamy is the word to describe this dark beer at 8.5 vol%. Also, what a velvety soft mouth feeling with such a dense flavour concentrations, so far away from watery beers. I was highly surprised too with its hoppy earthy flavours, so similar to Trappist Westvleteren 12. A LOT of Belgian hops are used here, because the beer itself is quite sweet, and sweetness masks hoppiness so easily (similar to sweetening your coffee with the objective to lower bitterness). Still, that load of hops was remarkable really, and in such a perfect balance with the malt sweetness. Again, the similarities with Trappist Westvleteren are there. I also noticed some spiciness, similar to liquorice. Did I say trappist Westvleteren ? Anyway, when youre into Westvleteren 12, then you will sure love this Bierboom bruin. Simply because the similarities are ASTOUNDING !!!!! HIGHLY recommendable !!!

sebletitje (9556) - Enghien, BELGIUM - SEP 25, 2015
Bouteille 33cl, bottled 12/2013. Acajou, col crmeux blanc-cass. Arme offre un bouquet agrable ester, fruit noir de raisin et pruneau. Le tout montre cependant des signes de vieillesse niveau levure. Malt cara dark, ple. Palais est malt moyen, caramel, sucre brun-candi, un peu sec et poussireux sur une touche de fruits noirs. Houblonn moyen surtout sur la fin apporte une amertume plaisante. Reste classique mais bien ralise.

Brune dont la recette mane de Rudy van Vossen, refermente, de 8,5 % abv. Mon exemplaire a t brass en dcembre 2013 et est donc en pleine force de lge. Couleur brun chtain fonc superbe. Clart nette. Bulles fines, principalement en fontaine au centre, mais aussi alentour. Mousse qui est un nappage beige trs correct et stable. Armes superbes, classe, qui vont profondment dans les fruits et les bois, avec une distinction hors norme. Je suis rest un vraiment long moment avec le nez au-dessus de ce verre, en fermant les yeux. 1re bouche souple veloute, entre malt torrfi et caf, avec une distinction extrme. Un caf de ce niveau doit valoir une cinquantaine deuros au kilo. Arrire-bouche de cognac grande champagne de 25 ans. 2me sur des fruits noirs, bois de chne au schage, tabac brun de la Semois. Arrire-bouche de splendide quilibre et profondeur de got. 3me sur un prodigieux mlange de tout ce que doit avoir une bonne brune. Arrire-bouche dune lgance et dun raffinement merveilleux. Longueur o on trouve dautres nuances de haut vol, du trs beau malt, des accents de whisky de Campbeltown, un vieux calva aussi. Jambes finement marques. Levure de splendide veine, de grand caractre. Alcool trs progressif, et qui soutient les saveurs avec la plus grande dontologie. Finale qui se dguste au plein sens du terme, elle se susurre.... CONCLUSION: superbe brune, extraordinaire brune, bourre de qualits, et qui plus est, de distinction. Je suis trs heureux de lui offrir son premier 5 sur le site. Dieu que jaimerais voir (et boire...) une quadruple ralise par ce brasseur!!! Nhsite pas Rudy!!!
