4.1
Alengrin (5376) - BELGIUM - FEB 21, 2017
UPDATED: FEB 24, 2017 Bottle shared by Ster at her place, cheers! Yellowish pale beige, creamy, moussy head, nicely lacing, thinning in the middle, over a black beer with hazy burgundy edges. Lovely aroma, soy sauce at first, toffee, balsamic-glazed roasted beetroot, bitter chocolate, salted caramel, gravy, ginger powder, liquorice candy, dried orange peel, cigar tobacco and - indeed - walnuts. Following the soy sauce and gravy aspect in the aroma, the palate starts off with heavy, meaty umami flavors, suppressing a faint hint of sweet candied fig and the sourishness of roasted barley; deeply nutty middle, lots of bitter black chocolate and some softening caramelliness, toasted bitterness in the end, nutty and liquorice flavors adding complexity (the liquorice even lingering beyond the finish - although it too is probably connected to the added walnuts somehow). Spicy hoppiness pierces through in the end, and so does an afterglow of warming, whisky-like alcohol, well in place and not descending into unpleasant wryness at any point. This is only my second beer from this small Ohio brewery but I’m beginning to love their works, this is again a thing of beauty - if you don’t mind heavy gravy- and soy sauce-like umami flavors in your stout, that is. I don’t, at least not if it is embedded in a sufficiently rich and complex basic structure and that certainly is the case here.

blueshockey24 (607) - Colorado, USA - JAN 4, 2017
Bottle. Pours black with tan head. Aroma is sweet chocolate malty fruity. Taste is sweet chocolate malt with a boozy malty chocolate finish. Pretty good but not something i would seek out.
