Syfher (500) - Brussels, BELGIUM - JUN 5, 2016
Bottle of 33cl, in a Trappist glass; room-temperature.

We’re in front of a dark red-brown beer, with a light fizzy head. The aroma is nut and yeast, The aroma is chocolate and yeast, sweet but deep.

Nice one, but usual.

3.4
Metalchopz (3596) - Cantley, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 3, 2016
Pours a hazy red-amber colour with a beige fizzy head that disappears rather quickly leaving no lace. Nutty nose with dark fruit aromas and some brown sugars. Raisins, dates flavours with some nuttiness in the middle and pretty solid bitterness in the finish. Lingering roastiness and hints of caramel. A good Belgian strong brown beer.

Marrón rojiza, muy abundante espuma ocre. Aroma a levadura, lacteo. Notas malteadas. Dulce en boca, acaramelada, tostada, dismulando bien el alcohol. Buen cuerpo, gas bien marcado. Final más seco y amargo, apareciendo más el alcohol.

BB 26.09.15. Aged for a year+. Semi-clear red copper beer. Small pale beige head. Nose is sugary, boozy, caramel and dried fruit, malt bordering on toastiness, but not quite there. Flavor is less sweet, but the caramel is still there, dried fruit, malt, spice. Hop motes and sticky sweetness in the finish. Nice one.
