Christian (13339) - Odense, - MAR 27, 2012
Odense spring time specialties night at Dolle. Copper with a small off-white head. Aroma of malt, brown sugar and caramel with complex but quite strong spices. Sweet caramel and spice flavour. Couldnt drink much of this spice bomb

This bottled brew from a bottle shop poured a small sized head of foamy fine to medium sized tan colored bubbles that were mostly lasting and left behind a no visible carbonation semi-opaque dark red brown colored body and a fair lacing. The aroma was malty and brown malt. The semi-flat thick mouth feel was weakly tingly at the start mediumly tingly at the finish with a lingering vinous aftertaste. The nice flavor contained notes of semi-sweet vinous mild spice brown malt and dough. A decent one that I would consider drinking again.

Bottle. Poured clear dark brown color with an average frothy tan head that lasted with good lacing. Moderate to heavy sweet malt, yeast and spice aroma. Medium to full body with a smooth texture and flat carbonation. Medium to heavy complex sweet malt and spice flavor with a medium to heavy sweet finish of moderate to long duration. Complex solid brew.

2014.01.27 - de Molen Klap van de Molen - 11.2 oz bottle in small goblet glass. 2011-2012 vintage. Bottle marked 15/11/2011, presumably bottled date. Aroma: kind of line a pumpkin beer, honestly. Clearly a veggie smell. Could just be the combo of spices and my brain associating with pumpkin beers. Clearly sweet smells. Kind of barleywine-ish, similar to my recollection of the aroma of Bommen & Granaten but not as sweet. Appearance: Pours around 22 or so on SRM scale. Kind of medium dark mahogany or chestnut with red highlights. Not a lot of carbonation but a 1/3 finger off white head that lingers a good bit and slowly reassimilates. Taste: A bit of tart tang at first quickly replaced by the spices. This lingers until the underlying veggie-ish taste disappears and the spices trail off. Palate/Mouthfeel: very smooth, mostly light but a very mild bit of creaminess. Overall a slick mouthfeel. Aroma 7/10, Appearance 3/5, Taste 7/10, Palate 4/5, Overall 14/20

gEUS (1637) - Linden, BELGIUM - OCT 22, 2013
330 ml bottle at home - pours hazy amber with nearly no head. Aroma of nuts and malt, vanilla and cinnamon, cardemon. Sweet slight spicy palate, slight bitter in the finish, no carbo. Damn, well drinkable beer. This kinda blows me off my socks. BBD was 2 years after bottling date (Nov 2011) but I think I am going to keep on to my other bottle a while longer. This beer evolved well!
