Koelschtrinker (19101) - Kln (Cologne), GERMANY - JUN 19, 2011
Sehr wrziger Antrunk, etwas malzig, der Alkohol macht sich leicht bemerkbar. Im Mittelteil weiter malzig-wrzig, nur sehr leicht hopfig um das harmonische Aroma nicht zu stren. Erst im Abgang wird das Bier suerlich und lsst so einen Aromenwechsel zu, weiterhin ist aber das Malz fhrend, die Wrzigkeit nimmt leicht ab und wird brotig. Der Alkohol ist hier zu erahnen, hlt sich aber vorbildlich zurck. Mittellanger und leicht rstiger Malzabgang. Nett! Test vom 13.8.2008, Gebinde: Glasflasche Noten: 11,12,12,12,8,12 - 11,70

330 ml bottle. As Dark Old Strong Ale Vleteren. From Woesten/Vleteren, Belgium. Pours a hazy burgandy with fair tan head. Nose is like sweet old cardboard. Flavor has oxidation, and dark dried fruits. Sweet, but dry yeasty finish. Huge carbonation. I rather enjoyed it.

Plums, prunes, raisins and a bit of malty astringency. Light biscuity as well. High carbonation, fine dryish mouthfeel. Flavour is mild, malty, caramel, prunes and plums. Light dark chocolate and a fair dry malty finish. Okay.

26th September 2010.
Hazy amber brown beer with a small cream head. Light, crisp and semi dry palate. Creamy dry malt and a little caramel. A little orange and whispers of banana and marmite. A few minerals before a dry finish. Not bad.

Barrelbelly (750) - BELGIUM - AUG 19, 2010
Trappist and Triple mixed flavour. It would be better if it were one of the two but it seems they could not decide which flavour they would like. The bottle mentioned "old strong ale" but the taste is rather shallow.
