Bottle, bought @ Beer Planet, Brussels. Big pop. Muddy brown with a large, frothy, yellowish head. Aroma has mild chocolate, raisins, plums. Medium carbonation, fine dry and light creamy mouthfeel. Flavour has raisins, plums, soft astringency with some liqourice. Quite nice chocolate finish with some warming alcohol.

UPDATED: MAY 25, 2013 Bruné foncée, mousse crémeuse, col épais. Bien maltée, rôtie, chocolat noir, goût d’alcool trop prononcé, légèrement sucrée sur le retour.

bartlebier (4261) - Belchium im Biersgau, GERMANY - MAY 4, 2013
375ml bottle BB Jan 2014. - Very fresh and inviting aroma of EU, apparently homegrown hops and a lively yeast strain. pours a standard Belgian dark ale purplish brown with rather standard 8-degree trappist taste palette: caramel, shy roast, earthy dark fruits. Medium dryness. Achel 8 comes to mind, but sugar and ABV in this are more apparent, to remind you of a potential headache. Wanted to enjoy this more as a primer for this interesting true family brewery’s EU cask experminents

dasdan (235) - BELGIUM - APR 30, 2013
37 cl bottle from dranken Geers in Oostakker. Dark brown body with a red shine and a large off-white head. Aroma of roasted malts, coffee and some yeast. Taste of light coffee beans and sweet caramel. ***

Beergeek23322 (2602) - Chester, Virginia, USA - MAR 31, 2013
March 2012. 375 ml. bottle. Pours redbrown with a tan head. Nice aroma of dried fruits, caramel, roasted malts. A bit of sweetness on the palate. Balanced finish.

lembeek (143) - ITALY - MAR 4, 2013
Birra inutile. Scura, con una schiuma fine e poco persistente. Aroma eccessivamente caratterizzato dai lieviti, con sentori di caffè e cioccolato e spezie. Nel palato dolce, maltata, con sentori di tostatura. L’assenza di corpo non riesce a supportare l’alcolicità.

VT (2526) - Quebec City, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 19, 2013
375 ml bottle shared with czar. Thanks, mate! Pours a nice brown with a resilient pale beige head. Smell is candi sugar, brown sugar. Flavor is brown sugar, caramel, red berries, spices. Finish is good hops, rather old-tasting, dusty notes in there. Yeast. Lingering fruity notes. Light to medium body. Carbonation is a bit too aggressive. Very good offering!

czar (9802) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 18, 2013
pours muddy dark brown with a very nice frothy off-white head, good retention and lacing. barnyard notes, spicy, dry caramel, very grainy - cherry-peppered malts. lively and soft carbonation, light body - could use a bit more, nice grassy-peppery-spicy finish. good!

kraddel (9568) - Antwerp, BELGIUM - DEC 15, 2012
traindrink with 77 ships, tastes dry , sugary, bit earthy. high carbo. as expected, not a special or unique beer

77ships (11750) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - DEC 2, 2012
375 ml. fles gedeeld op de trein op weg terug naar huis van Zwanze Day met Dylan (Kraddel) & Artiom. Geur is zoete gierst (niet zeker of dit klopt ik ken de naam van de plant in kwestie enkel in het Russisch, ik ga aannemen dat het gierst is in het Nederlands), graan, lichte vleesjus, gedroogd fruit met karamel, siroop en mout erin gemengd. Gierst is sterk aanwezig in de smaak, lichte rog, zoete granen, chocolade, bitter kruiden tegen het einde, siroop, bruine suiker en Belgische gist. Redelijk veel bruis – interessant, lekker, dit bevalt mij wel & alle ingrediënten zelf gekweekt op de boerderij, netjes.
