adster (773) - HUNGARY - JUN 29, 2014
Sötét vörösesbarna, közepesen testes főzet egy maláta alapú ízvilággal, melyből az alkohol is kidomborodik. Rendkívül könnyen fogyasztható, szájban tartva igen kellemes érzetet kelt. Kissé likőrös jellegű egy enyhe komlós árnyalattal, azonban a gabonás jelleg adja lényegi karakterét, mely által egyszersmind laktatóvá is válik a sör.

Madsen1635 (734) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - SEP 7, 2014
From bottle. Aroma has burnt malt and yeasty notes. Taste is balanced with fresh fuzziness to it. The strenth from the ABV is felt but not to much. High carbonation

PapaVillum (912) - Valby, DENMARK - OCT 8, 2014
330 ml, flaske, 8,0 % ABV, købt i Den Belgiske Ølbutik, 8. oktober 2014. Mahognifarvet "belgier" inspireret af skotternes Ale med fin mørk beige skumtop på 2-3 cm tykkelse. Toppen svinder til 1/2 cm efter kort tid. I næsen er der tørret frugt som rosin, sveske, abrikos. I indledningen en berusende sødlig aroma, senere mere "mørk". Gær. Smagen er let syrlig, sødlig og bitter. Øllet er i fin balance og kroppen er middel fyldig. Det let syrlige ligger i starten af billedet, hvorefter kombinationen sød/bitter overtager og i slutbilledet er der en mere mørk (skotsk?) bitterhed, der giver eftersmagen og aldrig gør indtrykket af øllet for sødt. Konsistensen er vandet/tynd til oily, og øllet lidt overkarboneret, hvilket ødelægger et ellers godt indtryk, men giver det et friskt udtryk. Eftersmagen er medium bitter og let sød. Denne smagning vækker minder om en Belgienstur julen 2012, hvor jeg første gang faldt for McChouffe - den holder sgu stadig vand, selvom der har været mange bedre øl siden.

330ml bottle bought at Market Place by Jasons in iSquare, Tsim Sha Tsui.

Looks: Translucent blackish brown colour with no yeast sediments; Half-finger head and crumpety light beige foam which lasts for 1 minute; Excellent sticky lacing and fizzy small carbonation.

Aroma: Very fragrant and sweet dark malt, with cotton candy, sweet caramel, strong vanilla, light banana, strong bubblegum, Bel yeast and light cloves.

Taste: Pleasant, mid to light sweet taste of moderate dark malt, with light assorted dark fruits, grape soda, aromatic spice, light molasses, light alcohol, Bel yeast, light lemon, moderate bitter hops and light grass.

Body: Mid to light body, slick palate.

Mouth Feel: moderate Brown Ale malt, somewhat on the thin side. The Fanta-like grape soda palate gives it a slightly watery feel, but compensated by very aromatic spices, molasses and dark fruits for a very poppy, confectionary vibes. Pretty bright and bubbly for a dark ale. Not bad!...

Hoppiness: Almost no aroma. Nice spicy, light lemon and grass in taste. Bitterness is light but notable for strong Brown for an abrupt, low bitter semi finish.

After Taste: Fairly dry. Candy-ish and easy to mouth.

Comments: This is probably the easiest and naughtiest Brune I’ve had for a long time - fair dark maltyness being seriously boosted by smart choice of Bel yeast to give an average Brune a real magical vibes as if a kid holding a cotton candy in a fairground. Richer malts and thicker sweeter palate will put this one straight on top. An easy one for now.

leebotton (406) - Bristol, Somerset, ENGLAND - OCT 25, 2014
Reddish brown beer, poured clear with a noisy off-white head. Rich malty aroma of semi-dried fruit with booziness to make you cough. Flavour is of a light belgian yeast with prune or date juice but more watery. Mouthfeel is a little thin but overall very good with a refined flavour typical of a high end belgian strong dark ale.
