Alengrin (6200) - BELGIUM - FEB 19, 2018
One of Oude Maalderij's older beers, a smoked stout, now with new label like the other ones in this trio of loosely religiously themed stouts. Bottle at Estaminet De Brouwerij. Pale greyish white, irregular, bubbly head lacing in streaks over a hazy, very dark chestnut brown beer, almost blackish but still translucent with a bronze hue. Aroma of dried plums, walnuts, wet toast, elderberries, damp earth and even forest floor, coffee grounds, hint of gravy and indeed a whiff of burnt wood or charcoal, but not the smoked bacon effect of smoked malt I was expecting (and hoping for). Sweetish onset, dried figs and old raisins, medium carbonated (a bit minerally), light beef stock-ish umami touch and underlying sourishness; smooth, somewhat resinous mouthfeel. Caramelly and toasted nut-like malt bittersweetishness, again with only a very, very subtle hint at smokiness, more in a burnt wood-like way than smoked meat; roasty coffeeish bitterness is more pronounced in the finish, as well as a herbal, somewhat spicy hop bitter touch and damp leaf-like yeast earthiness. Lingering caramel flavours too, as well as a dash of warming, 'jenever'-ish alcohol, but well-positioned. A bit crude and earthy for the intended style, but more importantly: why is this advertized as a smoked beer while the smoke remains nothing more than a background accent? Perhaps to reach a potentially larger audience, but I would not have minded full-fledged smokiness here. Still, a correct and enjoyable offering for sure.

Fles thuis geprobeerd. Het is een donker bruin bier met een volle schuimkraag. Het heeft een rokerige geur. De smaak is rokerig en wat zoet. Beetje alsof je een asbak leeg eet.

Icedwarf (1958) - Etten-Leur, NETHERLANDS - JUN 21, 2017
Zwart bier met veel schuim wat direct omhoog komt. Smaak is zoet en krachtig met iets van koffie, karamel, licht rook invloed en toffee.

Bottle shared at Belgian Chimipalooza, thanks! Very hazy brown with a small tan head. Aroma of caramel, overripe dark fruits, light veggies and yeast. Flavour is moderate sweet and bitter. Medium bodied with soft carbonation.

33cl / gebotteld op 10/2014 Interessante smaak, zou dit graag nog eens proberen. Best wel een goed biertje.

erickok (6037) - Leuven, BELGIUM - JAN 14, 2016
Brown body, bit cloudy. Very full, quite cloying, brown caramel, Apple pie. Bit cloying, heavy on the stomach, but inherently a flavourful beer. Just not terribly complex. (33cl bottle from Dranken Pauwels)

Wim (4307) - Weelde, BELGIUM - JAN 7, 2016
Along with Yves at his home dark brown colored body with an off white head and with a coffee roasted malt hops aroma a caramel malt hop fruity bitter sweet taste with a alcholic bitter finish

Yves (3232) - Turnhout, BELGIUM - DEC 27, 2015
Shared with wim at my home. Brown colored beer with small off-white head and no carbonation visible. Roasted malty smoked alcoholic aroma. Full sparkling palate. Finish is bitter roasted fruited sweet.
