Beer5000 (6731) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JUN 11, 2016
750 ml bottle. Clear, copper red to amber body with a nice, lacing off-white head. Aroma of caramel malt, dry fruit and toast. Flavor is really sweet and otherwise like aroma, caramel malt, dry fruit, toast and a moderate bitterness towards the end. Fine balanced body and long lasting aftertaste. Basically way too sweet, but as some Belgium somehow manage to create some kind of balance even with this sweetness it feels pretty nice. Quite enjoyable actually.

From Hipercor. In Teku glass. Browsing the web about connecting to MSSQLServer Express. Delicious belgian sugary, but not excessive. Alcohol well hidden, easy to drink, not too much strong. Pleasant to mouth and nose

corkyrory66 (2196) - BELGIUM - MAR 23, 2016
Bière non plus à 9 % abv, comme indiqué sur le site, mais à 8,5 %. Non refermentée. Mon exemplaire avait 6 mois en plus que sa date limite. Couleur roux auburn, à la clarté nette. Bulles moyennes, éparses, peu nombreuses. Mousse qui est un nappage brun clair de surface. Arômes de malt cara, candi, caramel, un peu de baies noires. 1ère bouche souple à l’ensemble malt cara et candi, avec quelques fruits mûrs. Arrière-bouche équilibrée, mais d’un niveau modeste. 2ème assez agréable, mais un peu doucereuse. Arrière-bouche à la personnalité pas très affirmée. 3ème un peu plus affirmée, comme en réponse à ma remarque !! Arrière-bouche à la fois fruitée et boisée. La longueur ne confirme pas cette 3ème bouche, elle est plus indéfinie. Jambes modestes. Alcool qui ne fait pas son niveau, il ne travaille pas sur la longueur. Finale linéaire. CONCLUSION : que faisait le Keizer Karel avec cette rouge rubis ?? Il attendait qu’on lui serve la blonde ...
