fatty (363) - Perkiomenville, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 21, 2006
Best before 1999. Dark orange/brown body with floaties and thin white head. Aroma was a musty old cork. Flavor was sweet, leathery, earthy malt. Palate was smooth and soft and void of any carbonation.

Bottle. Pours a clear amber with medium frothy off white head that lasts. The aroma is sour fruit and yeast. Medium mouth, fruity malt, light spice and finish, hides alcohol well, good.

bartlebier (3982) - Belchium im Biersgau, GERMANY - MAR 2, 2015
Bottle bb’95, [email protected] ’15 Vintage Tasting ZO, merci. Aged into reduced amber candy slosh: tired cinnamon on gingerbread and clove aromas, with distinct cherry candy/ruby port notes in flavour. Some lovely rustic UK-style hop bitters managed to survive and tingle through all that, not too bad!

8/II/15 - 33cl bottle @ Vintage Tasting Brugs Bierfestival - BB: 21/XI/95 (2015-168)

Clear amber beer, creamy off-white head, pretty stable, bit adhesive. Aroma: bready, oxidized, bit sweet, dusty, spicy, yeast, orange peel. MF: ok carbon, medium body. Taste: sweet start, caramel, sherry, spicy, some cinnamon, cardboard. Aftertaste: caramel, bready, oxidized, little bitter, bit metallic. Held up pretty well, considering this is over 20 years old.

Alengrin (5369) - BELGIUM - SEP 23, 2014
UPDATED: MAR 4, 2016 Strong version of the classic De Koninck on 75 cl bottles. Warm amber colour under a yellowish white, thin head; malty and estery aroma, with the unmistakable De Koninck yeast presence, caramelly and bready malts, spiciness, toasted bread, orange peel. Soft fruity taste, sweet but not cloying, some citrus, sweet maltiness and spicy yeastiness, again very De Koninck but richer and more vinous, smooth and somewhat resinous mouthfeel, yeasty and grassy hoppy finish with a hint of warming alcohol. I liked this when it was fresh (I think it was back in 2002 or 2003), too bad it was discontinued years ago to be replaced by their Triple d’Anvers.

Botella de 33 cl en la antigua internacional de Oviedo en mayo de 1998. (consumo pref para antes se 05-05-1999) Color ámbar con aromas y sabores dulces y algo afrutados y buena sensación alcohólica con 8 vol. Buena.

10/10/12. 11.2oz bottle, 2004 vintage, from Walt... wtf, Walt? He sent me this entirely randomly as a thanks for sending him beer that he paid for! What a dude! Hazy, yeasty, dark amber, ruby pour with a very small ring of khaki head and no lacing. Yeast, burnt caramel, oxidation, and what reminds me of a shot of whiskey or something in the aroma. Sweet caramel entry with plenty of yeast character followed by more oxidation and a lingering aspect of burnt nuts and burnt popcorn - not in the buttery sense, but the actual burnt popcorn sense. Interesting. Glad to try it!

Botella de 33 Cl en 1997. Rara botella como si tuviese el cuello con una burbuja enorme
