corkyrory66 (2195) - BELGIUM - FEB 4, 2017
Bière brune de 8,5 % abv, qui est plutôt une double qu’une belgian strong, même si son niveau abv est assez élevé. Brassée avec 4 houblons, sans épices ni adjuvants. Mon exemplaire était à 3 mois avant sa date. Couleur marron foncé, avec beaucoup de matières en suspension (forte saturation à l’ouverture). Mousse brun moyen, crémeuse, stable à 4 mm. Arômes de malt cara, feuilles de vigne, candi brun, pointe de raisins secs. 1ère bouche un peu pétillante, avec un malt cara assez correct, pointe de bruyère. Arrière-bouche sur du candi et du malt, pointe de cassonade. 2ème avec un ensemble malt/fruits mûrs. Arrière-bouche bien équilibrée, assez jolie. 3ème un peu moins homogène. Arrière-bouche qui perd en qualité. Longueur qui retrouve quelques belles nuances, mais sans être réellement harmonieuse. Jambes longues. Levure douce, ligne correcte. Alcool bien, il fait son niveau mais n’harmonise pas la longueur. Finale agréable. CONCLUSION : bière correcte, mais les manques se ressentent à divers niveaux, harmonie et saveurs pas toujours bien intégrées.

SylvainCFC (343) - Brussels, BELGIUM - FEB 3, 2017
Brune très foncé avec reflets rouges. Mousse abondante blanc cassé, stable, tenue assez bonne. Nez sur le malt grillé, léger fruits secs. Fruits mûrs, compote, mais pas trop sucré. Levure. Bouche moyennement amère.. Finale courte. Assez alcooleuse. Texture de aqueuse à moyennement épaisse. Moyennement carbonatée. Corpulence légère pour une brune.

Mallorn (57) - Sevenum, NETHERLANDS - JAN 30, 2017
0.33 cl bottle from "Dreank van de Meisjes" in Haps. 50% off. Apparently this is the same as the Diole Bière de Noël which I got. Odd. I didnt enjoy this one, was even thinking about emptying it in the sink. The taste and smell are alcohol with added sweetener. Ugh, not a beer I would recommend at all.

sir__v (2630) - FRANCE - JAN 25, 2017
Bottle from ??? Color: clear dark amber beer with no carbonation and small white foam. Smell: caramel and sweet taste with belgian yeast and ester. Taste: medium body with caramel malt, sweet and ester belgian yeast. Good attenuation and quiet drinkable. Small alcohol finish. Aftertaste: dry and astringent, caramel and alcohol.

Shared bottle of Diôle Bière de Nöel at RB/HD at Bjørnøy 29.12.16. Drown. Diminishing pale brown head. Aroma and taste of dark malt and liquorice. Similar taste and aftertaste, with medium bitterness. Quite dry.
