Alengrin (5785) - BELGIUM - AUG 12, 2014
One of Den Triest’s first, with light beige head and bronze colour. Aroma of dates, nutmeg, cacao powder, coffee touch; dryish taste on a chocolatey malt base with lightly toasted accent, mild hops in the finish but not really bitter, mouthfeel remarkably thin in relation to its strength. Way too heavy to be called a dubbel, this is more of a ’massive ale’, albeit not so massive as it should have been. Kr1zz (402) - BELGIUM - JUN 8, 2015

Pours brown to dark red with a big creamy beige head. (autumn color).
In the nose: caramel, very very fruity, notes of caramel an roasted malts.
Taste: caramel notes, notes of roasted malts and chocolate. lot’s of dried fruit flavours, a warm alcoholic feeling in the throath. At the end, there are dusty notes. Almost no bitterness.
