minutemat (5255) - Shrewsbury, Shropshire, ENGLAND - MAY 23, 2017
330ml bottle @ monthly tasting, courtesy of Simon. Thanks chap! Pours a deep reddish amber, smudged tan head. Aroma is ripened dark fruits, moderately sweet caramelised malt. Taste is smooth, balanced sweet candied fruits, relaxing caramel malts.. perhaps a little boozy rich, but quite pleasant and flavoursome.

Aroma: malts with notes of caramel, toasted toffee, biscuit, dark fruit esters...flavour follows aroma: intense dark fruit esters, as forest fruits, plums, resins, some muscat grape notes, rich malt charackter with notes of caramel, toasted toffee...and some sherry-like alcohol note. Finish is slightly dry, fruity, body is full, texture smooth, carbonation is moderate medium.

Kleurplaatje (185) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - MAY 16, 2017
Pours reddish brown with a small tan head. Aroma is fruity, roasty and somewhat vinous. Clear presence of forest fruits in the nose. Flavor is bittersweet. Biscuits, caramel, dark fruits, hops, vanilla, wood, spices... Warming finish. Excellent. Bit of an alcohol bite though, but its complexity makes it up pretty well. Finish is sweet, with a dryish tone. Syrupy texture, fizzy carbonation. Definitely a tasty one, but it has its sharp edges.

MelvinKalksma (1462) - NETHERLANDS - APR 19, 2017

Aroma:
Medium aroma of malts, caramel, wood, vanilla, dried fruit, bread and spices.

Appearance:
Turbid/opaque dark orange/dark brown beer with heavy yeast and with a slight/medium beige head.

Taste/Palate:
Starts medium/heavy sweet with malts, caramel, wood, vanilla and dried fruit; ends slightly bitter and dry with bread and spices.

Overall:
This beer is intense and balanced, but lacks complexity. Very soft flavours and palate with a lot of flavour, but not very much going on at the same time. Very good beer overall, but never amazes.

Bottle 33 cl. Pours a cloudy dark brown with a small off-white head and an aroma of vanilla, oak, toffee, ripe dark fruits, mango, licorice and dried plums. The taste is medium to heavy sweet with a full body, a soft carbonation and an medium lasting bittersweet finish. Nice!

Bijl (546) - NETHERLANDS - MAR 26, 2017
Donkerbruin , ongefilterd, deeltjes gist, troebel, crmekleurige schuimkraag die snel inzakt, iets koolzuur. Aroma: Vanille, hout, karamel, donker fruit, fruitige hops. Smaak: Vrij zoet, vanille tonen, zoethout, karamel,toffee, hout/Oak. Fruitige hopbitter met harsige hinten. Ook hinten van donker fruit en donkere bessen. Voldoende bitter met ook een kruidig en netelige prikkeling. In de nasmaak veel hout smaak en fruitige hop. Flink wat alcohol warmte nodigen uit om rustig te drinken. Volle body, zacht mondgevoel, afdronk is bitterzoet, fruitig en iets plakkerig.

DijkBier (340) - AMSTERDAM, NETHERLANDS - MAR 25, 2017
Third time to taste this beautiful beer, and compare it with its brother-beer Thomas & Kenau. Bottle with dark brown pour and tan head; some particles of yeast afloat. Aroma with clear wood/oak, vanilla, strong caramel/toffee, and at the end something more fusty. Taste is very full, but still surprisingly fresh; quite sweet, caramel, roasted malts, with a light bitter in the finish. Sweeter than Th&K. First swig has a little tickle on the tongue; probably from the alcohol. This is a beautiful and well balanced beer, rather sweet, but full bodied, and real tasty.
