2015 vintage. Donker bruin bier met een dunne witte schuimkraag. Aroma: chocolade, gedroogde vijgen en wat alcohol. Smaak: zoete kandijsuiker, donker fruit, chocolade, peer en wat graan. Klein bittertje en wat alcohol in de afdronk. Wel te zoet naar mijn smaak.

Alengrin (5116) - BELGIUM - DEC 28, 2016
UPDATED: MAR 20, 2017 Quad from this brewery in Drenthe, bought at a Mitra shop in Lelystad. Medium thick, moussy, pale greyish beige head leaving dots of lacing and some thin veils in the middle, over a translucent dark bronze to mahogany brown beer with ochre edges. Rich bouquet of cocoa, toffee, candied figs, yellow Sultana raisins, overripe pear, ripe blue Prsident plum, medlar even, caramel syrup, dried banana, blueberries, brown rum, beef stock, bayleaf, old dried thyme, wet brown leather, stewed horse meat carbonades, blackcurrant juice, slowly stewed cranberries, coffee with a lot of cream, vanilla pudding, Eiswein, brown bread crumbs, very old sherry hint (vintage bottle of 1+ year old - onsetting oxidation, in other words). Candied sweet onset, hinting at marmelade, blueberry jam and candied figs with a deeply situated blueberry sourishness, soft spicy notes and beef stock-like umami as well, in a medium yet subtly tingling carbonated environment, just about right for this style; rich caramelly malt sweetness ensues, very (milk) chocolatey in the middle, acquiring a bitterish toasted edge quite rapidly but firmly maintaining this deeply situated chocolatey and very toffeeish sweetness. Very malty beer by all standards, finishing a bit more dry due to herbal, somewhat spicy hop pungency and a warming, very lightly astringent, rum-like alcohol glow. The alcohol and the bittersweet - yet more sweet than bitter - flavors linger for quite a while; at the same time, some retronasal, bit rusty but still very elegant, old sherry-like oxidation remains as well. I havent had any previous experiences with this brewing company so I cannot compare with the quality standard of their other beers but this to me is a very accomplished quadrupel: thick enough, complex, very pleasantly malt and sugar sweet, with a warming alcoholic finish but adding umami layers of flavor which make it quite an individual beer departing from the old sweet Belgian blue Chimay, Rochefort 10 or indeed Westy 12 standard - in fact almost turning it into a dark barleywine, if that concept makes any sense at all. The bottle fits this time of the year perfectly and the age (I estimate about 1.5 years) is perfect for this type of beers, already adding a sherry-ish maderisation which, in this case, only adds complexity to a basically relatively simple beer - for this style, that is. I thoroughly enjoyed this one at this age - if this is the quality standard this brewery achieves, Im very curious about the rest of their range. Pleasant surprise.

Bottled. The aroma has caramel, raisin, bit chocolate. Dark coloured beer with a thin, off-white head. The taste is sweet, has chocolate, raisin, hint of roasts. Full bodied, bit sticky mouthfeel. Quite nice, It is a quad with an imperial stout tendency.

Uitstekende quadruple. Sterk zoet, hinten van drop en chocolade, iets van zoethout. Warm van de alcohol, zonder alcoholisch te zijn. Echt lekker.
