I take this beer keg format. Although I prefer the format bottle. A good beer, but without the quality of the great Belgian beers of this style

Nurmis (784) - Oulu, FINLAND - SEP 26, 2016
75cl bottle. Pours brown with big tanned persistent head. Plum and other dark fruits, yeast. Really soft mouthfeel, cannot taste alcohol. More sweet than bitter. Really good.

Gehbe (451) - Vilnius, LITHUANIA - SEP 26, 2016
UPDATED: DEC 10, 2016 Pours a clear ruby brown with a huge light tan head and nice lacing. Aroma of candy, caramel, molasses sugar, spice, citrus. Tastes medium sweet with medium/light carbonation sourness and a drop of crispy bitterness on finish. High carbonation, medium body, very thin for the amount of ABV, assertive alcoholic finish, a little sticky. Not bad but rather one-dimensional, and I’m not fond of the palate.

jampura (195) - FINLAND - SEP 17, 2016
Makea, kaunis olut. Maltaisuus, hiiva ja melkein toffeemainen karamelli. Hyvä, tumma bock.

mice (1011) - FINLAND - AUG 7, 2016
Kirkas, keskiruskea olut vaahtoaa alussa kohtalaisesti, mutta vaahto katoaa aika nopeasti kokonaan. Maltaisen makea, sokerinen ja pehmeä, hieman luumuinen tuoksu. Maku samoin maltaisen ja pehmeän makea sekä aavistuksen luumuinen. Ihan nautittava olut ja belgialainen ei petä, mutta eihän tässä kieltämättä mitään erityistä ole. Jää kauas parhaista belgiveljistään.

triskaideka (369) - Killarney, IRELAND - JUL 28, 2016

3.5
MelvinKalksma (1687) - NETHERLANDS - JUL 20, 2016

Aroma:
Medium aroma of malts, caramel, Belgian yeast and fruit.

Appearance:
Turbid/opaque ree/brown beer with a slight/medium beige head.

Taste/Palate:
Medium sweet with malts, caramel, Belgian yeast and fruit.

Overall:
This beer is rather intense, complex and balanced. Nothing really to write about to be fair, just an average dark Belgian Strong Ale.

3.5
Fules (1338) - Gyöngyös, HUNGARY - JUN 27, 2016
Monumentális, hosszan tartó bézs hab, sötétbarna, vörösbe hajló szín. Erősen fűszeres, karamellás, gyümölcsös beütésű illat. Nagyon picit édeskés, karamelles ízvilág, fűszeres, komlós felhangokkal, kis égetett cukros beütéssel. Testes sör.

3.1
Syfher (489) - Brussels, BELGIUM - JUN 5, 2016
Bottle of 33cl, in a Trappist glass; room-temperature. We’re in front of a dark red-brown beer, with a light fizzy head. The aroma is nut and yeast, The aroma is chocolate and yeast, sweet but deep. Nice one, but usual.
