ath the capital in leuven dark brown colored body with an off white head and a spicy caramel malt aroma a spicy sweet caramel malt bitter taste with a alcholic bitter finish Alengrin (5639) - BELGIUM - AUG 10, 2014
Commissioned ale for brasserie Demervallei, with rocky, yellowish beige, sticky head and dark mahogany colour with rusty hue, hazy with vivid sparkling. Pretty strong, estery aroma, pear syrup, candied dates, grassy hops, liquorice, orange peel, coriander, soap, banana. Candi sweetness and candied fruits in the onset, smooth but rather thin mouthfeel compared to its strength, peppery and nutty accents on a caramelly base, flowery hops in the finish, where some of the candi and liquorice sweetness also linger - perhaps just a tad too much. mikske79 (1727) - Puerto Plata, DOMINICAN REPUBLIC - AUG 7, 2014
