Alengrin (5270) - BELGIUM - AUG 19, 2014
Classic dry stout with a long historical heritage; thick, light beige, sticky, stable head, black colour with a wine-red hue only visible under bright light, clear. Strong aroma of coffee and bitter chocolate, leafy hops, iron, walnuts, peat, leather. Dry taste with subtle presence of dark fruits, smooth, bit oily mouthfeel, bit sourish carbonation, caramel malts in the middle, supple, mild but nevertheless clearly roasted bitterness in the finish (black coffee) which also shows some peppery hops.

Bottle given to me at Christmas. A dark brown/black coloured pour with a thin off white head on top. Roasty, malty, chocolate aroma. Tastes similar, roasty, malty, chocolate, malty. Prefer it on cask but this is still decent.
