Donkerbruin bier met schuim. Smaak is licht bitter en licht zoet met iets van chocolade, koffie en karamel. Is wat waterig, dat is jammer. Deser (17) - Brussels, BELGIUM - APR 6, 2017
Chocolate-like, both in taste and aroma. Quite sparkling, but it still flows down very softly, just like his other beers. Very earthy but solid character. Good! Makes me want to try the 2 big brothers in DEO-OPTIMO-MAXIMUS range. Rubin77 (2043) - Brussels / Bratislava, SLOVAK REPUBLIC - NOV 3, 2016
F: average, brown, quick gone.

A: malt, roasted malt, a lot of coffee, cacao, hint of chocolate.
T: malt, dark fruits, chocolate, earthy, hint of sourness, medium body, good carbonation, aroma is much better than the taste, not very good balanced, sample @ Poperinge Beerfestival 2016.

Deep brown, very large head. Cereal, chocolate bread, crispy hops, very bubbly. Odd beer, quite nice though, bit of a Belgian English mix up. (33cl bottle from Dranken Pauwels) Wim (3959) - Weelde, BELGIUM - JAN 7, 2016

Another Oude Maalderij beer made at Gaverhopke, so I carefully open it over the sink, and lo and behold, upon removing the cork, the beer literally spouted out of the bottle neck like a fountain. I have no idea what is going wrong with Gaverhopke these days, but this is really ridiculous and hugely annoying, practically every beer coming from their brewery is a heavy gusher these days. Sigh... Anyway: very coarse, papery, pale greyish beige, irregular head towering inches above the beer but gradually collapsing; colour is a hazy very dark chestnut brown, murky with deposit; I also found bits of semi-solid ’mud’ in the bottom of my glass. Aroma of glue- and shoe polish-like phenols (very strong initially but fortunately fading after a while), dead leaves, coffee grounds, old dusty cocoa powder, fondant chocolate, elderberry, nutmeg, toasted brown bread, bayleaf, black pepper, walnut, fresh mushrooms, pear. Sweetish and sourish onset of elderberry, redcurrant, hint banana; very clearly overcarbonated with an even somewhat numbing effect on the tongue, distracting from the flavour. Dusty yeastiness shows up early and carries all the way to the finish, over a caramelly and toasted malt body with roasted bitterness in the end, cold black coffee effect with certain chocolatey aspects; earthy, peppery hop bitterness further dries the finish and as expected, the phenols return retronasally, but less intrusively than I feared based on the aroma. Deep redcurrant sourishness persists (a bit too strongly) alongside the caramelly and toasted malt bittersweetness. The idea behind this is good, like most Oude Maalderij beers, but it is very obvious that it has been very badly executed from a technical point of view. I will temper my disappointment over this because the basic flavours are okay but I highly recommend this beer company to take their beers elsewhere! Yves (3033) - Turnhout, BELGIUM - DEC 27, 2015
