COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A darker, slightly sweeter beer than its blond counterpart, Loterbol Bruin is a delicious strong Belgian ale, brewed in tiny batches at Belgium’s smallest brewery. Highly drinkable, even at 8% alcohol, this beer lives up to its name, which translates roughly to ’prankster.’ Unlike most Belgian beers of this strength, Loterbol Bruin is not loaded with candi sugar. It does not want for malty sweetness, but it is superbly balanced with enough hops to stand up to the high alcohol. A remarkable brew, if a difficult one to find . . . we bring in only about 60 cases a year.

Trying after the Duysters Drossaard. It has the same harsh bitterness in the back that I can’t get past. Again nice pour. Aroma here relatively neutral.

Alengrin (5428) - BELGIUM - SEP 4, 2014
Tasted when it still had an ABV of 10%. Dark chestnut colour, beige, loose head, strong estery aroma of dark fruits, candi syrup, spices, yeasty and fruity taste with dark maltiness and even a roasted bitter accent in the finish. Scotch-type ale.

Net als de blonde loterbol een bier met iets te weinig smaak aan naar mijn goesting.
