COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This amazing brown Abbey beer of Herkenrode, brewed by Cornelissen brewery, is going to change in terms of branding. The beer is staying the same!! From August 15th, 2017 this beer will call HERKENRODE NOCTIS bruin. Also available on draft. From the foundation in 1182 till the French revolution the Cisterciënzers nuns brewed their own Abbey beer. One of the main reasons was the fact that drinking beer was much healthier then for instance drinking water. In 2009 the Abbey of Herkenrode and Brouwerij Cornelissen decided to bring back the centuries old tradition of the Herkenrode Abbey Beer according to the old original recipes for brewing the original Abbey beers of Herkenrode. This is one of the sole 23 official Belgian Abbey Beers! This official Belgian Abbey beer has a pleasant alcohol percentage of 7% alc. vol., brown/orange-amber coloured beer, with a nice bitterness and a lightly sweet and spicy aftertaste. It is being brewed with 100% Munich Malt of summer barley. This beer is a natural product, only using malted barley, Saaz hops, water, yeast and natural resources. The ripening process of the malt and hops (Styrian Golding and East Kent Golding Sid) in the wooden barrels gives the beer a light touch of Vanilla and smoked food. The beer is filtered which gives it a nice clear colour. DETAILS BEER - strong brown beer - high fermentation - refermentation in the bottle - no refermentation in the kegs - 7% Alc. vol.

Manslow (1855) - Warsaw, POLAND - JUN 20, 2017
Butelka 33cl (tak dostosowałem się) wypite w domu. Kolor ciemno bursztynowy z ładną białą pianą. Aromat przypraw egzotycznych z owocami, trochę karmelu. W smaku nuty owocowe z karmelem raczej słodkie. Na finiszu wytrawne, przyprawy i owoce. Dobre piwo.

blackisle (2811) - Amsterdam IJburg, NETHERLANDS - NOV 28, 2015
Bottle 33cl. Cloudy medium amber, small frothy off-white head, settles quickly leaving yeast islets, good lacing; strong roasted malt aroma, caramel, dried dark fruit, honey, alcohol; taste is light heavy sweet and medium bitter, malty, light toffee, nutty and spice notes; medium to full body, oily texture, average carbonation, the rather thin aftertaste is mild sweetbitter, roasted malts and light spicy notes as well as alcohol in the finish; tasty brew, though not strong enough it’s more like a Barley Wine than a Dubbel, probably because of the prominent alcohol presence?
