11.2oz Bottle. The pour was a muddy dark brown with a nice reddish hue around the edges and an average (1-2 finger) tan creamy head that had great retention pretty much lasting throughout, thus creating some excellent sheets of sticky lacing. The aroma starts with a roasted sweet bread malt and moves on with an earthy somewhat leathery yeast. In the back ground I sensed notes of milk chocolate, molasses, brown sugar, some dark fruit (raisons and figs), a hint of smoke and a mild winey alcohol presence. The taste started with a nice malty sweetness and had hints of chocolate and brown sugar, progressing with a good bit of dark fruit and a slight alcohol finish. The flavor had a decent duration following the swallow with a sweet fruity taste fading as a mild creamy chocolate alcohol flavor settled on the taste buds. Mouthfeel was a strong medium in body with an extremely smooth and creamy texture and an almost flat carbonation. Overall this was an exquisite tasting brew, one that possessed a nice sweet malty taste with a really intense creamy feel. This hid the moderately high ABV extremely well and made a pleasure to consume...

Hazy red brown beer with frothy and longlasting beige head. Aroma is roasted malts, hops, yeast and spices. Taste is sweet caramel, dark chocolate bitterness with dry bitter finish. Medium body. Rich flavoured and good tasting beer.

Bottle. I will be heretic but this was far from expected. Leffe brune set the limits and this is beyond imo... Not sure about the high ratings but nope for me

Plum and raisins on the nose. Finish is more on the dry, subtle side than bombast Belgian. Good carbonation, but to me (I’m a rube) taste could be a bit more in the foreground. Could grow on me, seems similar perhaps to Orval in its subtlety

330m bottle. As Corsendonk Pater Dubbel Ale. (6.5% ABV) Pours a hazy ruby-brown with a large, frothy, long lasting, beige head that leaves curtains of lace. Yeasty aroma with dark fruit, spices and caramel malt. Sweet flavour of caramel malt, dark fruit, red wine, dark chocolate, spices and yeast with a dry, slightly bitter finish. Medium body with an oily texture and average carbonation. Pretty decent.

Barea (26) - SLOVAK REPUBLIC - MAY 29, 2017
Bottle from tesco. Sweet caramel, honey, plum aroma. Dark colour with red tones, big creamy head. Taste of caramel, honey, little bit roasty, black fruit and lovely earthy bitter finish. Really enjoyed this piece.
